Some of you that attended OzarkCon this year and spoke with me may
have heard the story of my wonderful wife getting me a 3D printer
for my birthday which was a day before OzarkCon started (April
4th). It was supposed to be delivered today, but thanks to FedEx
disregarding the specific delivery date, it was delivered Saturday
while we were away. Thanks to my neighbor who intercepted the
FedEx driver and picked up the package for me, it was all safe and
sound when we got home yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.
I got it all unpacked, assembled and running about 2:15 this
afternoon and it's been running on a project (antenna center
insulator) since I got it calibrated. It's 3:20 Central right now
and the insulator is about 75% printed. The attached picture was
taken just after it got the base firmly laid down at about 25% .
Once I got everything unpacked I discovered that it actually came
with 3 separate print heads. The 3D filament printer, a 200 mW
Laser engraving head and a 19000 RPM CNC carving head that can do
wood, plastic, PC board material and light, non-ferrous metals
with the right bit (included).
Folks, a 77th birthday present (besides still being alive and
kicking) don't get too much better than this! (Her birthday isn't
until August 4th so I have lots of time yet to come up with
something to top this. Will be hard though!)
