Yeah amazon for filament. Cheap as anywhere else most of the time with a good choice.
Super, Thanks will have a look.
I got an XYZPrinting daVinci pro a while back and I'm still learning but now attempting to build a 3D scanner. With a Sony mobile from the MM (Thanks punky_munky) I can do some photogrammetry.
Oh the little bit in the corner is a WIP Hornby train part.
Is this the right cable to fit my ender 3 to my PC>USB-2.0/2.0A to 5 pin USB-Mini-B ender 3 cable.
I can confirm it is, bought one.
Flying Turtle, can be found on usual websites
Just finished the 3 wise skulls 3d print 20hrs in the making its turned out really great.
Stands 210mm high, only defect a couple of filament strands under one chin that has not taking.
This is a Xmass present for my sons girl friend, who is into skulls the mind boggles lol.
My first 3d printer arrived yesterday as a belated birthday present to myself. It's an Ender 3 and has been great so far although I think I'm going to get a glass bed for it during the week! Pics of my first prints to follow .
Hi there's plenty of info on youtube just search ender 3.
Hi is the ender 3 pro still the 3d printer to get or any thing better up to £500
Depends what your requirements are really. Build volume, printer size etc
So Prusa just announced a new printer for sale now and a PrusaXL coreXY coming soon.
Damn, the XL is a whole new printer. I was hoping for a 30x40 bed and extended rails for the MK3S.
thought i would share a useful print i did recently - needed a patch panel for my home lab and too tight to buy a panduit panel. Already found a 2 port wall bracket which i previously remixed to give an 8 port panel and this time needed 12 ports, had to split it 2 pieces to fit on my ender 3 bed
Thinking about getting the Elegoo Mars but very new to 3D printing.
I'll order some extra resin but it's there anything else needed that reviews do not tend to cover?
IPA, gloves.... LOTS OF GLOVES.
Apologies I've not read the rest of the thread, I'm thinking about asking for a 3d printer for crimbo, probably mainly for miniatures then whatever proves to be useful.
Currently eyeing up a deal on an Ender 3 Pro with glass bed and 2kg PLA for £155, but I've also seen a blue CR-10s on eBay for £150. I can imagine the extra print size maybe being useful on occasion but probably not essential. Any opinions on which would be a better bet for a first printer?
For a first printer the Ender 3 is great, can't remember if they've updated the firmware on the PRO but make sure that thermal protection is enabled (google it, and you see how to test) otherwise you'll need an arduino to flash new firmware. The cr-10 is also a great printer and the bigger build volume is nice to have, my first printer (6 years) was smaller than the ender-3 and within 6 months I'd upgraded to something bigger.
Any other questions please feel free to ask ;-).
