I haven't posted in a while because I've been busy fighting my Ender 3. And documenting everything for See Mark Paint.
Here's my setup:
Here's my purchased and printed upgrades, with links:
- PEI Spring Steel Bed upgrade
- Spring upgrade for bed
- Spiral wire wrap
- SD Card reader
- Steel extrusion mechanism
The BLTouch is so I don't have to worry about bed leveling. The PEI spring steel plate was so I don't have to use tape or glue on the bed anymore. The upgraded bed springs was for... well, I was mucking around with the bed anyway, why not? Someone recommended them to me. The spiral wrap means I can group and hide all of the wires and tubes into a single group and not have to worry about layers of cable ties. The SD card reader makes inserting and removing the card easier, not only because it's a more comfortable size, but also easier access. I used to have to "scootch" the printer up to the table edge to get my fingers on the micro SD card. The extrusion mechanism upgrade was because the plastic extrusion mechanism broke.
The printable upgrades:
- Argus Chain
- SD Adapter holder and fan cover
- Z-Axis rod handle
- Slot covers
- Tool Drawers (My version, (Right Click, Save As...) as the original didn't fit my Ender)
- TUSH (The Ultimate Spool Holder)
All this and more will be up in the 3d printing chapters in the next edition of See Mark Paint.
