It printed! In 3D!

by on Jan.24, 2012, under Projects, RepRap

Yesterday the delivery containing the new PLA-plastic and the spare thermistors arrived. I fixed the printer and after flushing out the remaining ABS I tried printing some stuff. Without any calibration, just drastically lowered the speed. I used Slic3r to convert the .stl file to gcode and pronterface for printing. Of course, there’s a timelapse. Just watch. There’s a realtime-timer at the bottom left.

Finally some pics of the parts. It’s not perfect but still a better first try than some of what I’ve seen on youtube.

Next up: Calibration!
