Illustration for article titled 3D printer setup is coming along nicely

I’ve been slacking off on anything motorcycle related for this one, creality ender3. 3D printing has been on my to-do list for a while and i found this one on the aliexpress app for $170. I think it’s been running almost 24/7 for the last 2 weeks. The four supports here were about 35 hours in 2 runs.


Goal here is to create a really nice enclosure to keep temps up, move all the electronics outside the enclosure, and print nylon and nylon polymers with really consistent results. Also going to happen to meet that goal is a DIY filament dryer to get the water out of nylon since its a royal bitch to keep dry without one.

Then I’m printing motorcycle and car parts. ALL the motorcycle and car parts. I’ve also seen some interesting filaments that are impregnated with metal powders to get a nice heft to the object, it’s crazy what these things can do.
