You're gonna need a faster slew rate if you intend to chuck your wire feed nozzle in your printer. The output will be a bit more durable than plastic is, though.

Largeish successful print.



Spool holder for the plastic... we'll see how it works. Time lapse of the build should be forthcoming.

I want to see a time lapse from the perspective of the nozzle.

I looked so see if someone made a nozzle bracket that would hold a little spy cam.. but nothing yet.
These nozzle ends move so fast, everything will be blurry except the nozzle end, anyway.

Mounting a Gopro or similar is too heavy for the print head to still be able to do it's thing.

You need a custom lightweight plastic part for a 3D printer. Seems like the source for that part might be in your own 3D print shop.

That would be cool! I don't think it would be hard at all to mount one next to the nozzle- My printer is supposed to be capable of handling THREE extruders, don't think a gopro is much (if any) heavier than one complete plastruder... them little steppers aren't light. If only I had one.

I do not have the "need" for one of those brackets. But yes, that is the idea of these awesome little machines.

I "need" to complete these designs and get this one printing parts for sale... I have already started printing the components for a second printer.
Rigid Industries has been waiting patiently for me to finish this. Preview here.

That time lapse is pretty cool.

Here is the last big print I did:


And here is what I'm working on now:

Wow, those both look great! What kind of plastic are you using? On the terminator(?), is is hollow or what percent infill did you use? How long did something like that take to print?

Thanks.

I'm using black PLA on the head, and the hand is grey PLA. The head took around 6 hours to print with a 10 percent infill, and 4 perimeter layers.

Around 60 mm/sec for the big parts and 10 or 20 for small parts.
