Video: Elizabeth and I try our first extrusion from the Ord Bot. Elizabeth was pushing the button to extrude plastic like there was no tomorrow. Just as I turned it off she touched the plastic close to the hot end and was surprised how hot it was, despite my cautions. Hopefully she remembers that.Photo: The simplest treasures are sometime the best cardboard boxes and pink strands of warm plastic.Photo: It really extrudes plastic!Video: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: EXT0_STEPS_PER_MM 413Photo: EXT0_STEPS_PER_MM 95.9Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Video: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Video: Photo: EXT0_STEPS_PER_MM 413 before I mounted the extruder without zipties.Video: Getting close to a functional ord bot 3D printer, just can't figure out how to get Repetier Host to talk nice to the z-axis.Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Henry Frost, was my grandfather's grandfather. He built a business out of turning yoyos, dowels and many other things from the woods of Maine. I take great pleasure in using his tool to remove prints from the bed. I wonder if he ever imagined 3D printing.Video: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Ooops. Cleaning time.Photo: Photo: Elizabeth wanted a "chests" set (chess set). I'm not sure why. We looked around and found a cute cat themed set she liked. We tried the queen first. I'm pretty happy with the results. I have some work to do in the area of oozing as seen in the layers where it skipped between the tail and neck, but otherwise, I'm pretty happy with it. So is Elizabeth.Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Video: Video: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: My first PLA print came out alright once I got it to stick.
