3D Printer Troubles...

So, I thought I'd buy myself a 3d printer whilst the wife was away and unable to say that I couldn't have one.

Only to find out that when I got it, it was more a case of "great, now you can fix..... and..... and......"

Have I printed it for anything I actually needed it for yet? Nah....

On the positive side though, the printer is working great at repairing solar lamps, handles etc.... :roll:

As long as they are blue or black I'm your man :D

Been using Sunlu PLA+ so far, seems to work well for me in case you needed a suggestion when you get yours sorted out.

LOL, now that top one resembles something I printed yesterday when I experimented with bed calibration, except mine was blue.

I spent 2 hours yesterday designing a bracket and its another 3 today printing. I'm sure I could have bought a new one cheaper.
