3D Printing

I bought a Prusa kit on October 2014, and have been merrily twiddling its various bits over the years with considerable delight, since it’s a nice, slow(ish) hobby. I suspect I’ll eventually upgrade to a Kossel once I find a kit with a decent price/performance ratio, but in the meantime here are a few things I’ve found interesting over the years.
