Got a 3D printer.

Recommended Posts

Oh my!

I have already printed off a bunch of parts for my Dillon 650. I'm about 95% done designing a 10,000 mhA battery mount for a Q Fix rifle that's set up for a thermal scope. Anyone else playing with one?

Hi. I've got the same printer and I've been having a blast printing up stuff that's not only useful and practical, but that's fun as well. Something as simple as a Lee powder hopper adapter for an old Ohaus Du-O-Measure that's been missing its hopper for years, to a nose-down bullet collator to make sizing much easier. If you haven't already done so, there a whole bunch of 3D printable mods for your Ender 3 that'll make it even more efficient. Ed

I am not sure if we even have the file anymore.  One of my employees printed that and he no longer works for us.  Let me see what I can find out.

But I had to put new tires on the truck, new tires and bearings on the camper, traded the wifes Street Bob Harley for my buddies Road Glide, and promptly wrecked my truck in Texas. Add to the fact I put three more guns in the safe last year. I better slow my roll a bit or the wife will have me looking for a job. :) (For the record I am retired USN and a stay at home Dad. A job/Position that I never want to give up ;) )

We enjoy the heck out of our 3D printer.

When it can materially respond to a voice command of "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot" I'll consider a purchase.  😏

We have 3 at work, the newest can print 2 different plastics simultaneously so we can do dissolvable or meltable bridging. They get a lot of use making all sorts of fixtures.

Didn't @KahrMan already provide the response his machine materially gave to that command? I could swear it. There was a picture, with two orange hands, and I could just swear the one on the right was a response to that command...

Had one of my guys look at the file and it would take 32 hours to print at a nice quality.  I don't think we will be making another anytime soon.  lol

Hi all,

I found another use for mine. I have an older round tray Lee Priming tool that the tray lid broke, so I printed a replacement. I've tried ordering / buying one, but Lee no longer manufactures them, and I couldn't find a Lee dealer that still had any old ones in stock. When I first got the printer, I wasn't sure what I'd do with it, now, I'm finding all sorts of things.
