    anyone else getting bombarded by - hey buy this laser engraver spam... and slowly being worn down?

    anyone have one? how many powahs would i need if i actually wanted to be able to cut cardboard? is the learning curve hard compared to 3d printing?
    This is a post i wrote by mistake, which is nice...

    I thought that said Gender unboxing for a second.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    3 to 5 watts would do it, you may have to do more than one pass but that's relatively easy to set up. Those cheap kits won't run fast either, they really go wonky if you try to speed them up.

    Upgraded to a Prusa i3 mk3, my velleman k8200 has served me well, if anyone in sydney is keen on a cheap printer it still works well. Setup for ABS most of the time but have done wood filament and PLA as well. Has an upgraded extruder, belts and hot end. Prints 200mm3

    Finally picked up my vellerman k8200 from Marty who generously gave me an hour of training. Got it home and doing my first prints now. So cool, I'm amazed at the resolution and how nicely it works.

    A couple of false starts but got a waterslide earthing lug printed ready to test, really good to be able to test a design without the expense of getting my laser cutting guy involved.

    I dunno, it's pretty good I thought. Haven't tweaked anything yet, there's a bit of a vibration when it changes directions which will be easy to address.

    i reckon thats bed levelling issue, happened a few times when i move the thing, gotta position it then re calibrate. a bit of a4 paper and some patience will sort it out.

    I'm actually really happy with the quality, if you guys reckon it should/could be much better I will have a play.

    Bit of bed levelling, slow the print speed a little and go 0.1mm layer height for best quality.

    Check all the Alan bolts are tight too so there isn’t too much wobble

    Google k8200 and there’s some good tweaking threads on 3D printing forums.

    Yeah that's what I did, cleaned and lubed the ways. Lowered speed a little and put an acceleration limit. I'm very happy with the outcome. Completely functional and useful. This is 50mm diameter and a pretty close up photo.

    Awesome! Done any 0.1mm stuff? I have done occasionally but too impatient most of the time.

    Slight improvement, but I've finally got my dimensions right. One neopixel spa light holder ready to go once I have abs filament.

    Another Prusa i3 clone. The Y axis rails look pretty weedy but the enclosure and touch screen are good. It would probably be OK when properly set-up.
