Things I printed this week #3

Well I started a new job this week so printing hasn’t been in full swing. Despite that, there has been some interesting prints and some further learning.

As part of finishing off my Prusa i3 Rework refurbĀ I have been making a case for the RepRapDiscount Full Graphic Smart Controller. This one looked well designed so I gave it a print.

No major problems here, I just might have added supports for small aesthetic pieces. Oh I did have to print a different big button because the original didn’t fit. It might just be a different type of button so I printed the one from here instead.

Fits together great and looks good.

This is a beautiful print-in-place model. The head and legs move and you can (and I did) print hollow. That is so cool. I did this one slow (20mm/s) to try not to ruin any of the small details.

Now it wasn’t without issue and I really want to print another one but as the pictures show there’s room for improvement.

I think the next time I print this I will be using supports ‘everywhere’ and also making the shell wall thicker and that may fix it up nicely.

Until next time.
