Great to see that you solved the problem and got the printer working  :whoohoo:

Are they just test pieces or do they have a purpose ?

Hi Per, thanks for watching and all the encouragement.
These are test parts to check the performance of the guy behind the slicer.
Kind Regards

Great start. Those have some tricky areas to get right.

Hi everybody, thanks for following along and all the friendly comments.
After some more R&D work, now my first real project.

The box for collets is just in progress, estimated finish will be tomorrow morning.
Apologizes for the color, but this filament was a kind of bonus delivered together with the printer.
As someone else has mentioned already, it will never get lost, it will be visible at any place in the shop.
Another advantage, never ever one of the shop gnomes or elves will take it away because it will lead me to their hidden home.

...and here the rest of the first real project story, the box.
Printing the cover and inlay was nearly 3,5 hours each, the box 21 hours.


Kind Regards

Achim,

Looks like you are going to have a lot of fun with that new tool - what's the next proper project you have lined up for it?

I just purchased an Ender 3 Pro.  I bought this brand because a friend at work had purchased the Ender 3 and loved it and it worked great straight out of the box. On advice from reviews I bought it on Amazon from Comgrow because the reviews said they offered good support and that Creality(the factory) did not respond.  Anyway I got it and it was easy to assemble and it printed first try.  The prints however were brittle and stringy and were not right.  I contacted Amazon which connected me to Comgrow and they worked with me for a couple of days trying different things to find the problem.  I was a little frustrated, but also very impressed how quick they were to get back to me and seemed genuinely concerned to make me happy with their product.  After a couple of days of back and forth with China we had it up and running and it has performed perfectly ever since.  Another advantage with Amazon is that you do have a window of time that you can return it for credit. 

I am having a great time drawing projects in Fusion 360 and printing them.  I have it on a bench behind my desk at work, so i can be around to keep an eye on the printer for some of the longer prints which can take hours and days

Good luck with your 3d printers.    Mike Nay

Hi Simon, I think first I have to change my mind a bit and press this thing into creative running processes.
It is similar like it was with the CNC mill, if you have it, you will learn that you never will use a RT again. Before I could not imagine.
A German fellow, who has seen my 5C collet box, asked me immediately, why you don┤t have designed round corners at the box ???
He explained my, that the printer must stop and accelerate at every 90░ corner, if it is a radius he will follow with full speed around the corner and will save printing time.
Be sure I didn`t think in that direction before.
