Thanks, yes, but just really me playing around to see what I can do with this printer. I could have made this out of wood, but it would have taken me days, so the 3d printer really comes in handy for these kind of things. It's excellent for prototypes and one of a kind designs you need here and there. Like e.g. I wouldn't mind some support for my heavy graphics card and I will just draw something in Sketchup and print it, easy as that smile.gif

I got some white, black, and natural color filaments ordered, should arrive very soon.

Printed parts is not really a problem, it's more the parts that are better being machined metal parts instead of printed that makes most of the difference. The original goal for this printer was to be able to print as many of the parts as possible, without much consideration on the quality, but personally I'd rater have a good and reliable printer than something that is easy to reproduce smile.gif

I had a quick look at the portabee, it looks nice and is definitely worth considering. If I build a new printer I want something like 400x400x100mm print surface, I already think mine is a bit small smile.gif

I think the printed parts is only a minor part of the total cost of the whole build, it more all the motors, electronics, rods, bearings, belts, extruder, pulleys etc that makes up the bulk of the cost.

The 3dstuffmaker.com guy looks promising, only he does not include a heated bed, but you can always upgrade to that later if you feel you need it. He does have a nice feature where he moved the extruder motor externally, that is something I want to do in the future as well. As for shipping, yeah, it's heavy, so shipping is a big part of the total.

If I do decided to go for an all-on-one kit it will probably be from 3dstuffmaker.com.
I might end up hunting all the hardware and electronics places in my city to find everything I need cheap tongue.gif
Either way though, a quick way to recoup some costs would be to resell the kits on ebay with printed parts I would produce, I believe over the next year hobby demands for 3D printers will go up, just you wait wink.gif haha
I agree with you though, my minimum size would have to be 400x400x100mm.

Yeah, that kit looks like it will work well, you can always upgrade to heated bed and lower belt pitch at a later time if you feel the need.

It should be easy enough to find the screws, nuts, threaded rods and some of the bearings and belts, but it might be harder to find the rails and linear bearings.

Not sure if there will be a huge demand in home 3D printers, I don't really think so, at least not as they are now. But of course there are always a lot of people like you and me who wants to have one smile.gif

Wow, I'm three weeks late! Sub'd. Loved the HTPC build and I'm interested to see what you come up with next.

Printed a new Yoda while I had the green filament loaded (again colors are off, it is actually green)

Thanks smile.gif .. Reminds me I still need to take some final pictures of the HTPC, I don't think I ever showed the lights and window etc.

Haha, that's awesome. Great work on the whole 3D printer. It makes me wish I had SketchUp skills and $1k I could afford to drop. It also makes me excited for these to become cheaper and easier to make. There are so many possibilities for them.

Now if you scaled it down and printed a Cherry MX keycap with that on it, I would buy it in a heartbeat (assuming it didn't cost an arm and a leg).

Thanks smile.gif .. No problem doing the model for a Yoda key, but it's too small, I use a 0.5 mm tip and it's really more for faster and less detailed printing. Maybe some day I'll get a 0.3 mm extruder for fine details.

Why must you tease me so?

But, seriously, awesome work with the printer. It looks like you're having a ton of fun with it already.
