I'll send you this if you PM me your contact info.

I picked up a Lulzbot AO-100 a couple months ago.
Love it. Making some obscure parts for my Rally Moto Kit.
Already starting on printing brackets for my next printer.

Lulzbot has a unique spool holder for the loose filament. I picked up some PLA from another vendor and it was in a plastic spool. I whipped up a holder for that.

do no know about "the world"... sure is changing "my world".

It takes me about 40 min to make a switch holder for our Roadbook/Rally setups.


It took me 30 min. to draw one up and get it printing... with improvements to the design.


small imperfections will be gone with a thinner layer height.

They're awesome for all sorts of motorcycle widgets. I ride with the Patriot Guard Riders and needed a flag holder, so I designed one up in SolidWorks and printed them out:


And last year I kluged the housing for a gyro-stabilized camera mount for my SV650.


We even ran FEA on the bracket to make it stiffer - and use less material.

wow, that's a pretty fast feed rate compared to what I was expecting.

Figured out my missed steps issues... Turns out you have to set each motor driver to the correct voltage (.47v). My X was cranked all the way up to .54. Got my first successful longish print!





Took about 2 minutes to build in Sketchup, and about 50 minutes to print.

I have experience with many of the Maker Grade 3d printers, and have seen them used in a public access shop. All of them are pretty fragile, and don't hold up well to semi-trained people. At this point, I'm hoping that the Replicator 2 and Replicator 2X are solid machines. The print quality on the 2 is better than all other units I've used (in that price range), and it seems faster. And it's made from metal, rather than laser cut plywood. It has built in shields, to block air movement.

DPunch - make sure to cover the machine, or put it in a room with *no* air movement. It will mess up your prints if you don't.

DorkPunch, what was the layer thickness and bead width on the little truck you printed?

Not sure on the bead thickness, but layer height was either .2 or .25, and I'm using a .35 mm nozzle.

I'm getting pretty good result with my prints so far, with the printer just sitting on my desk in a big-ish shop with lots of air moving from heaters and students walking past. Will def. try some type of cover though and see if they just get better!

Results from today's experiments. STILL having issues with Repetier. Annoying. It seems to do a MUCH better job of slicing and printing, it just gets STUCK and doesn't finish big(er) prints.

The head and cylinder were done on Repetier. The bottom of the engine was done with Pronterface.





Looks almost like the real thing!

Came across this today, though I would share:
