I'm thoroughly enjoying mine. Like @mmcp42 I have just built an IKEA Lack cabinet to keep it in. OctoPi is fabulous - so much better than pfaffing about with SD cards.

The über Lo-Fi 4" speakers in my 1999 Defender gave up the ghost the other day (PROB90 having battled to drown out the noise of the TDi5 engine), so bought some more for £25 but the surround was a slightly different size. :roll:

Spent 20 minutes designing a new one in Fusion360, and then a couple of hours to print. Problem solved, & Jeff Bezos none the richer 8)

Well chuffed.

Another recent Ender 3 Pro purchaser here.

Great fun, have made the usual accessories for the printer, a case for a home made vario and a mount for my phone.

I'm using OpenSCAD for design, then Cura to do the slicing.

PLA is great for printing but is temperature sensitive and a phone holder left in a car sort of curls up like a crisp.

PETG is less temperature sensitive so I'm trying that. Both of these are more or less odour free.

That feature of PLA improves at higher infills.

If I remember correctly the default is a very low infill.

If it’s for something functional I use 40 or 50 per cent infill on PLA. Have been known to use higher.

This is essentially a plate 2mm thick with walls (sides top, bottom) of 1mm so no infill.


ah, yes, not a lot you can do about that then!
