So far the most advanced addition to my lab. Thanks to my wife who gave it to me for Christmas. She gave me a voucher so I could choose one that works best for me. After some sleepless nights surfing the internet trying to figure out which one to buy I finally decided on the Prusa i3 MK3 kit. I respect Prusa Research a lot because of their role in 3D printing innovation, they are one of the leading companies but yet keeping the industry open-source and affordable.
Anyway, YAY, I got my 3D printer. First step is assembly, it took some hours but well worth it.
Now, what will I print. Here´s some of my brain farts (I don´t think this list is very interesting for any of you):
- Catfish Concept Car
- Smokers Launch Chair model
- Push Light
- Probably it´s wise to print some spares for the printer itself
- Parts for the 306090
- WMWY ceiling lamp (Woodfill filament)
- Architectural models
- Vacuum forming molds
- Lamp shades
- Swivel joint for arm lamp
- (Miniature) models of my design concepts
- The Standby
- Hortum Tentorium
- Toy series Paabow (PLA and a bit of wood)
- F1 car
Apart from the projects I want to run on the printer, I´m also planning to make a case for the printer. The Prusa i3 is one hell of a printer but aesthetically it´s a pain in the eye; it deserves a good house. Also it helps acomodating for any advanced ABS or HIPS printing.
