First object printed in 3D

As promised Here is a post with a photo of my first 3d-printed object. It’s a useless object, but I needed to test the printer for any defects since I bought it recently.

I was up all night because the print lasted about 10 hours and I started printing yesterday at 11PM. Why didn’t I let the printer do its job and go to bed ? Because from what I’ve read on the net there is a fire hazards on these printers (they have heated elements) and they should not be left printing unattended.

So the first print went ok. I like the quality of the texture of the plastic surface, and next will be printing a part of my house’s heated elements. Its a plastic piece that holds the heater to the wall. It broke. I will try to create a 3d model from photographs, and go from there.


3D Printer

I am now the proud owner of a 3d printer. Haven’t set it up yet, it needs calibration of several of its moving parts. In the pic you can see it along side of the PC in my garage.

When I print something I will create a post here to let you know.
