  • Well guys I'm up and printing the bed adjustment knobs so it is not a pain to set the height, then front and rear braces the Y and Z belt tensioner. R.

    • Awesome! She does some great prints, you will be happy with it especially with the upgrades also suggest a cover for the terminal end of the power supply with the power switch and plug port. Adds a great layer of safety as well as a cleaner look

      • I found an F35 i may try. Looks pretty good.
        This plane was designed to be an incredibly fun and acrobatic modern style fighter jet. It has and EDF that is capable of producing plenty of thrust to perform the maneuvers that you want to pull off. The print time is relatively low on it since there are minimal parts, that also makes assembly quick and easy. Flight Video Build Video  - Coming Soon Instruction Manual You get everything needed to print your plane in your download: stl files, slicer settings and an instruction manual.

                  • Sounds great, so far its going very well. Had a problem with the little extruder gear that caused some under extrusion. Got that fixed and back on the schedule. This looks like itll be fun, im going to spray the fuselage with polycyclic to help water proofing

                        • I have been printing away here, only parts to improve the printer right now. I have a problem getting my computer to completely see the printer, I loaded the software that comes with the printer but it only sees the printer and it won't let me look at it yet alone monitor it, I'm using ulimaker Cura 3.6.0 on the desktop and laptop but on the laptop I also have the Anet repetier program and it does see the printer but no controls, Cura does not see the printer at all.

                          What are you guys using?

                          Thanks Ron

                              • So far, I have not attempted to connect the Ender 3 direct to the computer. I'm putting the gcode on a micro SD and sicking that into the printer with the printer 20 ft from the computer.

                                I can shut down the computer and let the printer go ahead and do its 30 hour print task.

                                    I have been doing the same and no problems there, just would be nice to monitor it at the computer is one thing. R

                                    • You need an amplified USB extension cable both of those are probably cheaper cables that won’t carry enough signal.
