Hey Tone,

I have about 6 printers.... it's sort of another hobby really. A few were sent for me to review, I also repair them for a company called JG Aurora.. so have 4 of those. A Dremel 3d40 and a flashforge dreamer.  It all depends what you are after printing, what size.. how much messing you want to do and how much money you want to spend.  They all require a bit of messing, some more than others. At the moment the one I use most is a JG Aurora A5. I've added autolevel and better drivers so it's much quieter now. All have good and bad points really. Dremel are sending me there new 3D45 soon but that's about 1400 pou d's so it's not a cheap printer by any means.   Let me know your budget and I'll let you know my thoughts ..

Steve

Cheers Steve,

I don't have a specific budget, I just look to buy the one that is the best value for money.

Is there design/printing software that you prefer or find easier to use?

Do you have a 3d scanner or do you design from scratch?

Cheers, Tone

For software I use Autodesk Inventor but.. I would recommend Autodesk Fusion 360. It says it not free but it is for business that earn under 100k. So, for home users it’s free ????

I design everything from scratch, would love a scanner to try.

You are prob looking at 300 to 500 for a half decent printer.  I do like my A5 but I’ve done a few mods on it. .. some to look at are.. CR10 , anycube i3mega , A5 JGAurora or smaller A3s.  They all have a good support group. 

Let me know if you need out.

Cheers Steve,

Those prices aren't that bad. I will take a look at them all but probably get back to you before purchasing. I think I will check out the software first, to make sure its user friendly.

Yep, just let me know Tone :-)

Well, I've run out of P40!!!!   I missed Mr Amazon today so I can only potter tonight although I might have a go at wiring up my stereo thinking about it.

I was in London last night so decided to model up some bits for the fake engine to print.  I think its close enough.. will print it in abs, paint and then make a decision. Printing the bits off now, photo below so you can see what I'm trying to achieve.  As long as no Lambo police are about I guess it will pass as original.. lol

So, been working on it for a few hours over the weekend and during the week.  Wife want's me to just get it finished so she's letting me work on it whenever I want :-)

I'm still on the doorcards but also the dash end closing panels, these cover the old MR2 door hinges etc.  I still need to sand back one little bit where its catching on the door frame but my door cards are now finished :-).  I just need to do the other dash end this week, and then maybe another week to get everything lines up properly.. and then onto the dash!

After the dash it will be then time to get everything trimmed. Once installed the windscreen will go in and then I need to complete a few jobs around the car like wire up the indicators at the front and the lights. (swapping to LED bulbs)..  Then, I need to do all the underside and the false disc breaks. So, lots still to do but it's a step closer :-)

My lads been helping me too. We now have both door locks connected on the inside. I couldn't reach to the link inside but my lad did a great job.

Great work on those engine pieces, if you decide to make an extra set I would take one  ;D

Your interior is coming together very nice and now that you have permission to work on it as much as you like it should get done quickly.
