    • I printed up the Safety caps for EC5 battery plugs that bbaumer posted on Post #101 of this thread. These work great as they have compression pins on the inside that keep the caps on securely. Green for charged, Yellow for Storage charge, Red for discharged.

            • My problem is, I get so used to certain things being in a certain place when the shop is a mess. But after I clean it up, I can't find anything!

                • RBTX, Looks great, I build little stuff for the RC aircraft and that to me is the greatest part of 3DP. The little parts that I used to make outta balsa and epoxy resins, I now just design and print. Tool Cool for School. Best, LB

                  • I went through several Fusion 360 tutorials yesterday afternoon and wow were they good. I then applied what I had learned and designed a nose strut brace for the A-4 Skyhawk. Good stuff!

                        • Now THAT is a big print! How many hours do you estimate all the printing will take, assuming every print is acceptable?

                          • Alpha, Great Question. There are 47 g-code files from 127kb to 15,000kb +. I have 8 parts printed at about a 7-8 hour average. I am on my 2nd PLA roll. So there ya go. Best, LB

                                • It's like once you get started and see how easy it really is, you can't stop! I think my printer ran non-stop for 2 weeks after I got it.
