DIY 3D Printer Done and Working!
Last in pool
The Benchy boat (rear right) is designed to test a 3D Printer if it can print odd angles, curves, and floating structures without support. It is so hard to do that many expensive 3D Printers can not print it without massive tuning of the mechanicals of the printer to get it right, while my $200 printers can print them with out issues! OK, there are issues but they are very minor and can be easily fixed if I get off my fat ass and fix them.

But from what I am hearing, there is trouble in the South Asian Sea Which China is claiming as theirs. So I got my 3D Printers to start creating a navy to deal with the treat! Got a Battleship, Aircraft Carrier and a normal Benchy for support. Looking for a Sub to  complete the Wavy Benchy Navy...

Models are licensed Open Source/Common.... I forget what the term is but it is free to use as long as I'm not making a profit from them. But I am happy that my printers can print these things out when many have issues so that there is a facebook group for advice on those needing help printing them! Damn!

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3112418  Is the best collection I find, I also have https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4054688 ,  Might first hint is LEVEL LEVEL LEVEL your bed, also learn how to live level, use brims to help adjust while running, keep the belts tight.  Also when doing minitures might be a good idea to invest in a .2mm nozzle, it will take more time to print but you get more details.

Oh yeah... I have a .2mm nozzle. Created a near perfect Benchy with it - very smooth and sloped areas are smoothed not stepped, but it took 9 hours to print! LOL! Benchhys only take 45 minutes  for me to build.... HA HA!

Many thanks for the info!
