3d printing

A New Printer

Just before Christmas,I built myself a new 3D printer from a kit made
by think3dprint3d.com – the latest version of their Kossel Mini.

sported LED lighting too as i discovered that the IKEA Dioder LED light
strips fit perfectly around the top of the frame.  I designed and
printed a small hanger bracket to suspend the lights from the printer
frame,so there’s no velcro or double-sided sticky pads involved.

Since this photo was taken, I’ve also upgraded the spool holder and added edging strips to tidy up some of the wiring runs.

The base is a very old Belkin switched surge protector, which was originally bought when CRT monitors were the normal thing, however it’s perfect for controlling the printer and lights power.
