Creality3D Ender-5 DIY 3D Printer Kit

Postby Savage///Circuits » Sun Jan 24, 2021 8:39 pm

I finally got an entry-level 3D Printer. I haven't yet had the time to assemble it and test it. Truth be told, I'm not even sure what I would print to test it. While there isn't much talk on here about 3D Printers, if anyone can offer any suggestions or advice, that would be real nice. ;)

I've seen test peices on thingiverse that do various things like checking overhang, temp ect. Might check for something like that.

Yeah, I really need to get this kit opened so I can see what software comes with it. I know about Thingverse. I haven't gone to the site since 2014. I bet there's a lot more on there now.

I will have to check this software out. I still haven't gotten the thing hooked up, however I just ran into a situation where I need to print something and the whole reason I bought the thing and I am not even close to ready.

I'm hoping to get the 3D printer set up tomorrow. We'll see how the day goes since I am having lunch with some family, eating into part of my day.

Thanks...I'm getting closer. I'm stuck trying to decide on a laser cutter. What does this have to do with setting up my 3D printer? Well, they both need to go on the same bench and use the same PC and until I get a cutter, I'm not sure where this will work out.

I got very little information on the Parallax forums regarding laser cutters.
