I’d like to see what everybody is printing with…

I started with a makeblock mGiraffe delta printer. I would not recommend this to beginners.
It’s modified now with the addition of a 20 amps power supply, a titan extruder with bowden setup, E3Dv6 hotend, Radds 1.5 on an arduino Due and RAPS128 stepper drivers. Nema 17 400 steps motors, all running on repetier Dev. I’v thrown an raspberrypi with repetier server in as well with the addition of a picam just for fun…here is a picture:

I got this one as a gift and it opened my eyes to this amazing 3d printing world…I would love to get my hands on a Prusa i3 MK2S next…

It’s in a mess right now so I don’t think I can do that, it’s a crimes against humanity… :mrgreen:

Here is my 3D printers. I also own a Davinci 2.0 (my first printer) not shown here.

My Prusa i2 is almost complete now. I’ll update pictures. Just working on the fine tuning now.

  1. My trusty SmartRap Core (18mm MDF)
    Noisy as hell due to MDF box frame but print quality and consistency is outstanding.

  1. HyperCube I’ve built few month back.
    (Went with SS rods all the way through instead of ALU tubes or CF rods.)
    Extremely quite, built for “night shift” printing (10 out of 10 of the WAF points :slight_smile: )

  1. daVinci Jr 1.0 OpenMod (OpenMod = RAMPS 1.4 retrofit)
    Actually I don’t own it anymore, sold literally 3h ago on eBay.

image

  1. Kossel 250 V-Slot Delta
    Currently disassembled, mine was one of the early designs and due to some wear on plastic parts it was showing wear related artefacts.
    Reprinted all parts from the new iteration design files, ordered some new parts. Will be reassembled in 1-2weeks. Will upload photo.

  2. Up! Plus - good old Plus 1st gen on linear guide rails.
    Currently undergoes big transformation. Block reballing (done), Marlin compatible electronics retrofit (RAMPS 1.4 is too bulky to fit into the base, need to buy something like MKS Base) and E3D v6 with 0.15 nozzle, yes 0.15!!!
    140x140x140 build volume is tiny for 2017 but for 0.15 nozzle it is real estate.
    This project is going slowly in comparison, 0.15 isn’t easy.
    Will upload photos later on.

Another i3 dolly

And of course I had to build a stand for the printer

Needs a little wire managment still!

My Mendel is slowly coming along. it’s been a real pain getting all the rods aligned. I’m using SAE 5/16" rods which were real cheap at HomeDepot.

My old Da Vinci that I’ve butchered over the years. I regret buying this thing, it came with the worse hotend that only supported ABS. I put E3D V6 hotends in it but looking to upgrade it with a Chimera hotend.

My wackily modified Printrbot Simple Metal. I’ve had it for 3 years now, and It now has an e3d v6, 120v 300W silicone heater for the bed, 3d printed cable chains, 500W ATX power supply, LCD controller, and a high output cooling fan.

I got a Malyan M180 from Hobbyking sales about a year ago, but had not been really happy about it. Therefore, I took it apart and put lots of different parts/components to it. It is now running better than before and a lot quieter for sure. It has a MKS Sbase V1.3 board with 5 external LV8729 stepper drivers (X, Y, Z and dual extruders) running on Smoothieware. I also changed out all of the NEMA17 motor to high A, low V motors. I have also swapped out the original extruders with Flexion Extruders, and added a capacitive proximity sensor for auto bed tramminh. Since the original power supply was already closed to to working limit, I also added another 450W power supply to handle the load for heated bed. Lots of fun to modify it, and learnt quite a bit too while doing it!

This is my custom machine inspired heavily by the Prusa i3 and MK2-X remixes. I’ts been a work in progress for quite some time but is now finished. It’s rocking an E3D V6 in a bowden setup with a Titan extruder (now using a Bondtech BMG). I call it Extrusion i3.

We’re using our 3Dator printers for every day printing jobs. Recently added a door and a top enclosure for more consistent prints.
It uses core xy for the movements and features a removable heatbed and bed leveling sensor.

A trusy MK2.

But I’m lucky enough to work in the commercial side of things so I get to play with lots of other machines.

A Flashforge Inventor II

And a Flashforge Guider 2

We also just got a Rais3d N2 Plus, but that’s at our main print shop in a different state :cry:

This is my self-made prusa mk2s clone. I bought a water-jet cut frame but everything else i made or printed. Quite a few parts are modified to fit my setup (e.g. power supply cover, stepper mounts and top mounts, custom electronics cover to fit mks base board).

Soon to be upgraded with a MK42 clone.

My little China Gadget. Still new into the whole 3d printing world but already quite a lot useful stuff coming out of my Anet. To print stuff for my main passion, restoration of Mopeds 1950-1980.
Still a work in progress as I only own it now for about 4 weeks and figuring out how to get the best out of it. Maybe go with Tom’s Prusa series and build a second one from the scratch.

I have a Prusa Xi3, bought it almost 2 years ago.

I made a custom heat sink as the (non existent) old one was overheating my extruder.
I’m working on adding a part cooling fan and trying to fix ripping (might be due to the rubbery sheet under it).
I might try to add a sock, maybe following megamaking’s instructions.

The quality I’m getting out of it is pretty good except for straight lines where I get ripples.
