Hi, my name is RJ and a proud owner of Sunhokey Prusa I3 3D printer
I got my hokey last December as a Christmas gift for myself... LOL
It would be nice to know how everyone is doing with their sunhokey printer... sharing experiences, failures/success stories to learn from.
As for my experience, as soon as I received my printer I immediately start assembling it and managed to successfully print some calibration parts using the provided filament. One thing that immediately caught my attention though was the frequent movement of endstop holder... It just wont stay on its place giving inconsistent quality of the print out. So I decided to design new endstop holders and also a power switch holder which proves to be effective... you can get the design here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:640943
I also made some more improvements that I will share later on.
As for some of the details on my setup, please refer below.
1) I used ESUN PLA filament now. I find the orange color filament gives the best quality print.
2) Nozzle temp setting is 200 deg C and bed temp is 60 deg C.
3) I used diluted PVA glue (50:50 water/PVA) on the surface of the borosilicate glass to improve adhesion and prevent lifting. I used a 1/2 inch artist brush to spread the glue.
4) Speed setting is within 20~30 mm/sec (depends on layer height which is from 0.1~0.2mm since I need good details on my print out)
Hope this helps and really hope to learn from others as well.
Cheers everyone and keep printing ;)
