    Default HICTOP prusa i3 3d printer

    We've had a 3d printer at work for some time. its a powder type media that doesn't do well except for high reasolution and high color resolution. We then recently pruchased an Airwolf 3d printer because it makes more functional parts. Since then I've been aware that I really need a 3d printer for the house. But I don't want to drop 4k or 1k for that matter to get a decent one. I did some deep research. thankfully there is a company that sells a kit that you assembly for 300 bucks that will print PLA and ABS (abs is a must because of it higher temp threshold for part i print for the car). I decided what the hell. for 300 I'll try it.

    I'm very happen so far. just because I can print whatever I want within it capabilities. I've only been playing around with PLA but even still I've gotten lots of good prints from it. ABS is the next step. I've purchased some abs and will be trying it out soon.

    the kit



    mostly assembled



    first few prints

    Bonus points for whoever knows what this is lol

    The next thing is to start making V6F-body stuff with it. any ideas are welcome. Keep in mind single color objects.

    I think it would be cool to make some V6fbody keychains

    That is a great idea! I'll try to set aside some time to see what I can model for that. I guess the first question, which logo? I like our t shirt logo. but we also have the badge at the top of the site. and that can be with or without the trim.

    Nice! My fiance is a Dr who fan... We started watching it and I enjoy it but she's pretty crazy about it.
