Hi from Germany

Post by koreandi » Sun Dec 21, 2014 2:44 pm

Hi all,

I am new to 3D printing and bought my an UP! Mini...
My name is Andreas and I am 34 years old. I share my life with my wife and two childs. The wishlist from my children is quiet long in between. :)
My first prints are done and now it´s time for fine tuning.
I am sure I will request the experienced in the near future.

greetings...

The lighter is just for the scale.

I am still faszinated about the print quality of the MINI.
After making a extruder temp-mod (190°C to 260°C in 10°C steps) I am waiting for some parts for my bed mod.
I will make some detailed posts about the mods when I am finished.


Greetings from Germany...

Andreas

It´s looking great! Did you design the parts or took ready made STL?

The speaker case, SD card holder and the reamer are self designed.
The others from Thingiverse.
Why inventing the wheel if it´s already there. :)

Goodlooking models!

What software you use when you design the model?

As I am using SolidWorks in my work I use this for modelling my models.
I am experimenting a little bit with openSCAD the last days.
It is very interesting...
