So, we were calibrating the printer I built and after a height miscalculation, the nozzle smashed into the heated bed. luckily there was no damage as far as I can tell
That's the worst. The nozzles are pretty robust, mine withstood quite a few smashes and scrapes before it had to be replacedSo, we were calibrating the printer I built and after a height miscalculation, the nozzle smashed into the heated bed. luckily there was no damage as far as I can tell
It's may be fragile feeling because it probably wasn't solid infill.Im still not impressed with the outcome of most 3D printers to invest in one just yet. From all the videos I have seen and the piece of printed plastic on a RC part I have it just feels way to fragile to me. Ill give it a few years for more advancments to come before I take the dive. Now if I could inly get me a CO2 laser cutter I would be set until then
If you know 2d you're ahead of the game, but there is a leap to get to 3DThanks for the suggestions, guys. We actually had a course in college about autocad. Been a while that I forgot haha but it was only in 2D drawings.
I think I'm leaning more to sketchup. I only need basic stuff for drawing simple shapes and freeware is good. :beer:
Looking good Bob I imagine bending Kyded is the same as acrylic? Heat the joint + bend?
