VHS Equipment Review : Lonely 3D Printer - Keep for VHS


#1

Currently sitting on the floor collecting dust.

I don’t know what make/model this is. Apparently uses the larger filament than what is now popular? @SteveRoy or @KevMacD may know more about this

Keep it , bin it, sell on eBay, start up a new VHS Museum, claim it?


#2

Yeah, I think it’s the new Prusa that they’ve been building


#3

Is this the metal Prusa (template one)?


#4

It was donated a couple of months ago.
Keep it - it will be used.


#5

Let’s keep it as a Hacking Sample on which members can install “custom print heads” such as for printing pottery clay, etc.


#6

That looks like a NopHead original Mendel90. Solid printer. Did this come
from Ashley?


#7

Yes, Ashley donated it.

I don’t think this should be hacked. The plywood frame Prusa i3 is hackable providing there is prior notice of the intent.

#8

That printer isn’t as easy to hack as the plywood mendel as that printer has a different driver board.


#9

@SteveRoy - I am assuming that you are the Champion for this.

Could you document this 3D printer somewhere on the Tools wiki?

Thanks
