The Giant Panda has been having another upgrade over the holidays and am just finalising the wiring after going a little crazy on the neatness of the wires. Am still seeing areas where it should be tidier. Once I have recalibrated, can get back to printing the next areas of the case that have been adjusted.

Looking good Icky!

I haven't had the time until recently to get back to building my DIY printer. Need to finish the y plate and then I can start printing the pieces to finish. Then my plan is to build a Voron or hypercube reusing as much as possible.

Like you, locating it is going to be fun. I built a small 8x10 office in the basement.. no room after the wife decided to use it also!

The Giant Panda is feeling a little blue today. LED lighting installed :)

It's RGB lighting! Does it print faster now?

Indeed @DaveC. Just like go faster stripes for cars ;)

I put in the lighting as the chamber was actually pretty dark with the smoked panels. I have a few more upgrades to do today. The belts have been pretty poor and am now moving over to gates powergrip belts.

Always the way @rmahlert. Just when you think you have carved out a small space in the world it gets taken over.
