@minego Hey, do you still have that AnyCubic Kossel?

@minego Are you interested in spare parts or filament? I was in the process of upgrading my Linear Plus to a dual extractor but ended up ordering a uv resin model so most of my stuff isn't useful to me anymore

@Andolamin Yeah, that could be handy. I have had problems with my extruder and was trying to rebuild it... Then I got divorced and haven't had the time or energy to touch it for months.

@minego Yeah, I understand that. I had problems with my extruder and didn't get around to trying to fix it for several months, too

@minego So, we might do a family camping trip in the nearish future (I've been itching to get the telescope out again) so we might just drive the stuff over

@minego Any suggestions for spots nearish you that would have nice telescope visibility and hiking options?

@Andolamin You'd probably need to drive a few hours for a really good spot...

I'm a hermit so I'm not the best person to ask, but if you'd like I can talk to a few friends and get some good suggestions for you. (Please remind me when I'm less sleepy though xD)

@Andolamin I've been tempted to get a UV resin one myself... Very tempted. Do you like it? Which one did you get?

@minego I got the AnyCubic one off Amazon, it should come in tomorrow, so I'll let you know how everything goes. Planning on using it to print various parts of Alex's Black Panther costume for Halloween this year

@minego Sure thing! This one comes pre-assembled so I'm hoping it will be a bit less time tinkering and more time printing. Next project after Halloween stuff will be to build a Mars rover with Alex, and maybe some scale rockets/shuttles. Have also been thinking about building a 1:1 scale BB-8

@minego So far so good! Setup was pretty easy, a little bummed that it seems I have to use their slicing software, it's a lot smaller build volume than the Linear Plus, but I like that it takes up a lot less space. And it prints larger prints *much* faster. Better quality settings on this print than on the Kossel, and it's supposed to take 50min, where it was going to be over 6 hours on the Kossel :D

@minego Unfortunately, very small prints are quite a bit slower, so maybe it's a bit of a wash?

@minego Print is done, it's dripping a bit before I remove it from the machine. Looks like it came out perfect

@minego Just pulled and rinsed the prints, they are soooo perfect
