After waiting over 1.5 years in this Kickstarter project, they’ve finally shipped my 3D printer. It’s kind of funny because it’s like having a newborn where in everything he does is fascinating to you and you keep telling people about your newborn until you bore them to death. I’m having similar results with the 3D printer, the printing possibilities are just endless.
One of the first things I printed was a skull that a friend wanted. It took approximately 15 hours to finish, if there’s anything you should know about 3D printing, it’s that it takes a lot of patience (and I meant a lot). I’m printing a phone stand right now, should take around 5 hours.
There’s a lot of things to learn from this experience, like the types of filaments, temperatures to use, micro resolutions, x and y axis coordinations, slicing programming etc. I’m currently learning how to use Sketch Up which is a 3D software so I can design and print my own stuff. I’m thinking of printing a 3D logo of Kuwaitiful and a mesbah. What would you recommend printing?
Will post a review after using it for at least month.
