3D Printing

Ever since I got my hands on an Orca 3D printer in 2013, the world of 3D printing started to fascinate me. Creating solid 3D objects "out of nothing" with affordable machinery is probably the most futuristic things one can think of. Having some additional spare time (and extra money since I didn't spend as much on food or gas) during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, I decided to buy myself a Creality Ender 3. Although this printer lies in the lower price segment and is targeted at beginners, it provides much room for extensions; some of which can be made on the printer itself. I added the following mods to my Ender 3: Unfortunately, I had to give up automatic bed leveling (BLTouch) when adding the new mainboard. I've spent a lot of time debugging the firmware, checking the cabling et cetera, but had no success with that so far. Things that are still in the making: Pictures of the printer and my prints coming soon :-)
