    Hi all,

    I purchased one of Greg's ex print farm machines, first step into 3D printing and maybe in at the deep end a little, looking forward to get it set up and functioning.

    That's a big step! :) Ask questions and keep asking. There will be bumps in the road but it will be a real workhorse once you get it working the way you want.

    Will probably be lots of questions soon, managed to replace the fans, stripped the print head, greased the screws and got the octiprint updated. Printed it's first part tonight, the little boat model. First issue was couldn't get it off the bed, noticed some layers getting delamination. But as a first go I'm pretty happy.

    Hi everyone , managed to get a few bits printed for my kit car, first being some button markers which were needed for sva test. Next a steering column cowling, then a plug which I searched for sale but couldn't get one the right size. All models produced using Autocad then exported as an STL into the slicer.
