3D Printing

After much contemplation, I've decided to join the 3D printing revolution.

I've found a deal for Sunhokey Prusa i3 and 7kg of plastic and ordered a few spare parts with it.

It was delivered after about 2 weeks, at that night I've started building it with a friend, we finished all the mechanical parts in a few hours and I've finished off the electronics the next day.

The CD provided was very nice and had complete instructions including which settings I need for my printer. 

Here are a few pictures



Finished!

The first day was very nice, very happy with the results, 24 hours from parts to first successful print!

But I didn't buy it for toys, so let the real fun begin, prototyping :-)
