Printer Badge (Hours) by muckychris Jan 7, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

This personal shout-out is meant to adorn your 3D printer. There is a dig-out on the backside to accept the M6 hex heads found all over my Rep2 printer. Attach it at top, bottom, left or right - which ever works best for you. "Always Be Printing"

since filament is sold by weight, perhaps kg of plastic would be better.. and easier to figure out.. just count all the empty spools laying around LOL... no wait, a better idea, Km of the extruded length!!

Does your printer keep this statistic? Or are you deducing it from # of hours on the machine?

How about Meters of Filament Printed? (the 1.75 guys get the edge here, so maybe correct for volume of plastic?)

Instructions

You can check your print hours stats easily and print the badge that fits.
I uploaded badges for: 50+, 100+, 250+, 500+, 750+, 1000+, 2000+, 3000+, 4000+, 5000+, 6000+, 7000+, 8000+, 9000+ and 10k+ hours.

I printed at 20% infill, .20mm layer height, 0 shells, 80/150 speed, 230 degrees on a Rep2 using RepG.

I print a lot using 2 colors by doing a filament change mid print.
Once you see the nozzle start to write the text, press "change filament" and swap the filament.
