hey only been at this since 10/10/2019 so far I've become hooked with the idea of trying to upgrade my printers and down the line want to design and build things everything from cool toys for kids to robots (currently trying to figure out by my self how to program in c and c++) playing a bit with 3d modeling, never even attempted that till this past December so far hundreds of failed designs and about 20lbs of scrap filament from either bad adhesion or designs that are not successful. the tronxy printer was my first and i caught it on a 50% off sale and after about 60 hours of upgrades (heated bed, different part cooler design, bed tightening upgrades and belt tensioners) it finally prints a reasonable print for its size and cost. the bed was horridly wobbly when i first got it and then i ran in to where the prints would droop over a small whole and after that the i noticed the belts where jumping when it would try to move quickly from one direction to another so i fought that till i found some nice tensioners the whole time using that same printer to print it's own upgrades. after wards i printed a really cool wearable size pip-boy 3000 v3 from the game fallout 4. turned out beautifully and a caliburn (nerfgun designed and found on this very site) currently i am upgrading my creality cr-10 that i just received at the start of this year and realizing the massive difference between the 2 of these and am hopeing to get a automatic leveler and filament run out sensor for the cr-10 that way i can make bigger and more elaborate objects.
