So I finally bought a printer. Prusa MK2S. It's being delivered today. I will post a pic once I've built it.

Brilliant! That will have to be print#1, maybe she'll see what a great purchase it was. :idea:

Not the greatest pic but there it is. Assembly was tedious but nailed it. No adjustments needed after testing and calibrating.

It's been almost a year on my first printer and thanks to some inspiration from dryja123 I thought why not change up the color. Went with my personal favorite, the neon green translucent PETG. While changing the plastics, installed new bearings, belts, and PEI sheet. Almost a new printer. I'm excited for more printing, this is definitely addictive.

Also, designed a Ghostbusters logo for the nozzle fan which I will most likely post here and/or thingiverse.

Thank you, sudomod.

Oh, and since I've been able to design a print repair parts for various household items, the wife is NOT not so excited anymore. :lol: (Feel free to use that as a good selling point, if you're handy around the house.)
