I updated an earlier post about my ANET A6. It had a thermal overrun issue and almost caught fire (well, at least it produced a LOT of smoke). After struggling with that printer pretty much since I built it over 3 years ago, I decided it was time for a fresh start. I salvaged much..
Creality LD002R vs. Anycubic Photon

Creality vs. Anycubic I started with this .STL:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:869645 I've printed this multiple times with limited success, mostly because I attempted to hollow it out, put drain..

So, I'm still pissed-off about this, but I have to say that so far I'm impressed with the printer... As I said in a previous post- Anycubic's store took my order and my money for an Anycubic Photon printer back in mid-August. It was supposed to arrive in mid-September, and didn't.

These printers use a UV activated plastic resin and some form of UV light manipulation to harden the resin into..
I've mentioned in at least a couple of posts that I 3D print some of the things I need. This is great for custom things (like D1 Mini boxes) I can't just buy, or for one-offs that I can buy, but in larger quantities or it may take too long for shipping. I thought I..
