Got a 3d printer

Post by Cultus » Sun Jan 12, 2020 11:57 am

So I got a 3d printer for Christmas, and got around to printing my first item....
Of course it's gotta be a caddy!
I downloaded this print online that someone had already designed so as to practice and learn how to work my printer ,
I think it turned out alright for my first print!

Making the cupholder print as I type now !
And now learning how to 3d design my own prints now.
Definitely a fun hobby.ImageImage

Looking good! I’m currently playing with my CNC machine which also can take 3D printer head so will defo consider one in the future.

To be honest the first print looks awful! But theres a learning curve to everything difficult, but it's definitely worth it ,
I paid 130 for the printer new so it's pure Chineseium nonsense but perfect for a cheap starter machine to learn if it's the right hobby for me !
