A good friend of mine who uses his home 3-D printer to create arcade parts has been testing filament from many different manufacturers and tells me the Amazon Basics is actually pretty good for the price. So buy with confidence.

the pey-g laying down really nicely.
I hope it comes up.
I keep reading about people pulling up chips of their glass base trying to pry it off.

locking wheels might be an idea.
I have mine on the dining room table and i've had to pull the table out twice to get behind it.
I think I need a cart also but it has to have wheels.

Funny you mention that.... I was thinking maybe one of those metal carts might be a good alternative to the ikea end tables.  At least for the bottom part.  Been having trouble finding a good design though.

The base on my printer is 22" x 24".
I need to build something for a radial arm saw.

Dialing in the PETG printing.
playing with retraction settings and temp settings and stringing is getting way better and less boogers on the nozzle.
just uploaded a petg profile to octoprint from curo 15.04 so when current print is done i'll try that.

then i'll print the parts for the rpi clops 3d scanner and order the electronics to make it work.

You know, even though it's cheap I hate to pay more for shipping than I do for the actual product out of sheer principle, but that is looking really good.  I might have to re-evaluate my plans.  Keep up the good work Yots.

Thanks, Howard. I got more up my sleeve ;)

My plan is to paint the outside of the walls black like the table, but the inside walls will be white so the chamber itself isn’t so dark.

Update - I routed out the window chambers in order to fit them for plexi. Just a tiny bit more work, but it will be worth it.

that's pretty.
do all the sides come off easy?

I'm currently printing up an led strip hanger for my printer.
It's has two 6 inch sections of led strips that hang on either side of the z axis bar.

Also petg is NOT for detail work or small parts or parts with overhangs.
Boxes, case ect and simple parts that move like the articulating arm for the camera i'm using for octoprint? yes.

I've picked up some pla (pro/plus/premium) it requires a higher temp but is stronger and more flexible and looks like it lays down really well.

The enclosure is designed so that the whole top is supposed to come off, but me being the tinkerer that I am, I’m going to use magnets so that I can pop a side off quickly if I need to.

 More Pix






Still need to drill the holes to mount the switches for that plate.

Black painted. Of course, it being black paint, it gets everywhere. Oh well, will sand and touch up the white side. Once all is dry.

Are those the 16mm buttons you see on ebay all the time?  I need some for a project and I'm wondering if you are satisfied with them. 

*edit* Nevermind on the endtables…. looking at the dimensions they are probably too small.

I like the buttons - they’re a solid metal. I soldered all the connection last night and tested. They light up only when activated, which is what I wanted.

The fit with the table is going to be tight for the Anet A8. I’m relocating the power supply out of the chamber. More later!

Nah.  Shipping actually isn't terrible, but I'd pay more for shipping than the tables.  :)  I've got other projects atm so I'm not going to sweat it until I'm ready to start.
