    So what have you been 3D printing?

    I've printed quite a few things since I bought my printer but the latest is a power button for my Commodore 1801 monitor.

    I also printed a chassis for an internal Amiga Gotek floppy drive emulator.
    So what has everyone else been printing

    I have the Jaycar one. Love it, so simple and effective. I'm a bit fussy and really dislike unevenly bent resistors.

    Here is what is currently on the printer.

    The light blue ghost that was an early one, the one behind I added 3mm of brim, to combat it lifting off the bed.
    Need to pull/off and sand the brim, but seems to be working better.

    There is currently the last cog on the printer, takes about 2hrs. First attempt failed the first layer, this one looks like it will be fine.

    I'll upload a photo and the thingieverse link (to where it was stolen from) when it is complete.

    PacMan is still printing,

    I'd thought I'd share probably my favourite print yet. (I do have two others 3d prints that came out good enough to share)

    A Japanese style lantern. Designed to be a table number for a wedding.
    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2830063

    I printed it in grey/white colour (heat) changing filament I got from Hobby King ($9/kg - but was $27kg when I ordered another reel, should have stock up at $9 ). Not sure why I didn't print it in black.

    The middle was done in in transparent PLA and is hollow.

    I printed the frame part in high def and it took 86hrs. (I didn't expect it to take that long)
    Lid was printed in a lower low def around 8hrs and I believe around 8 hours for the trans.

    Will probably put a led candle in it.

    Cool. That's a nice but long print. How big is your print bed?
