I like that ATX power supply mount. That will come in handy.
I thought so too

I need to mount one under a table for my current printer, will probably use that example. Thanks for sharing.

Is there a forum member who will make these to order?  I really want some of the botton hole covers but do not have access to a 3d printer...

Figure out a way to hid a thumb drive in those SNES Mini toppers so that the pirates can stylishly contain their ROMs.

Banding is part of it unfortunately.  I've found a can of filler primer works really well in terms of reducing it. 

HaRuMaN, do you have a link to the model file for those snes classic toppers?

I kind of agree, but these things aren't exactly sizable, you're just used to Haruman potato camera pictures.

That is a quibble I have with 3D printers. They are great for prototyping, but not so great for something meant to be displayed.

Well that's not quite right either. He could change the print resolution and have it take a redonkulous amount of time and it'd come out better. For its purpose that banding is fine.

Spoiler, those faux carts are for me and I might make em prettier but that zelda cart looks tits as is.

It just surprised me that people are willing to settle for "okay" on a piece meant for display when it is 3D printed. I am considering the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that you guys put into your other work. I am not trying to be a jerk. I am trying to figure out how I feel about 3D printers. If you are happy with them then that is all that really matters. Saying they looked like ass was too harsh. It isn't my intent to crap on the work that Haruman does. It is more my thoughts on 3D printers in general.

I donít think they look completely like ass, but the expectation is that theyíre not injected molded either.

The satisfaction comes from holding something that started out as a concept or computer file in your hands that you made in the comfort of your own home.

By the way, up until I got a 3-D printer, I felt exactly the way that you did. But being able to design and then physically create something touches a creative nerve in me that I donít think I realized it would.

Anyone of these printers can put out a perfect smooth model. And I am sure someone will post something.
In this hobby though I see most people printing parts that visuals dont really matter.

Like Yots said, its more of the craft that gets people going.

Yeah but it's mostly a speed vs finish time thing.  Usually it's much quicker to print it out at a higher speed and sand or fill the print than to print it smooth.

These were printed to test out the process of drawing something in Illustrator, exporting it into Tinkercad, and then making an .stl to print.

Did you mount that plate on top of the bowing one?

Oh, and to everyone starting out, order the PEI sheet NOW.

No I will end up drilling holes for the mount and the heated plate. Even when I put the Borosilicate glass it forms to it. Ive never ran into the issue this bad until this printer. That Casa de Yots print would be perfect for dual or triple color.

I never heat the bed hotter than 60 degrees, so hopefully I wonít see much warping.

Yeah, me and some local collector buddies were designing 80s style logos. Iíd eventually like to try a filament swap/multi-color print one day.

Yotsuya. You should have someone local with a CNC machine carve that out in wood or MDF. It would look great with a decent paint job.

I snapped a tooth off an encoder wheel last night and I'm too impatient to order a new one so I just made one to print out.  I just freehanded it in photoshop based upon a scan of the broken wheel, so it might not be precision centered, ect. but I printed it out, put it in my drill and it spins really nice so it can't be THAT off.  I've enclosed the source photshop document as well as the finished stl.
