@toxuin It’s injection moulded plastic I doubt that there will be any point of failure involving the heat unless you are stupid with the machine.
also, there is no heated bed so you will only be printing PLA, I can see this as being great for schools but unless the accuracy is good it may be pitifully shitty!
@HeatherRose The Anet A8 won’t ever be the same quality as the Prussia i3 but I’m experimenting with my printer to find the perfect speed settings to make more “Quality Prints” by tuning the speeds to get a bit of a smother finish with less stringing. I will also be installing braces to make the frame more sturdy, Installing an auto bed leveling sensor and Upgrading to the SkyNet firmware. As of now my little Printer has OctoPrint Installed on the Pine 64 2GB Model (You could easily get away with the 512MB model of any Linux board) which makes it nice and simple to use my Custom Profiles from Cura™ and Slic3r™.
So I have a few more parts for my printer. A huge thinks to @ColeVanD and @toxuin for the hot end and extruder. This is a small demo 3d printer that we can take places to show off and say “If you would like to see a real 3d printer? Com visit the Kaloops Makerspace!”
