Bigdaddy2166 New Bambu X1 Carbon

This is the box and the lid plus some plugs if you don’t need some of the holes. It does take a bit of time (this was set for high strength):

Here is the original box. Two hours was a pretty good guess (Tom) Edit: Sticks had the good guess. I think you have done some 3D printing before!

I should note, this original box was downloaded from printables.com. It was not my design and the cover is very well designed.

I have, on a Prusa 3 and an Elegoo Mars Pro, both of which are a lot slower than yours, but it was @Sticks who guessed 2 hours… :slightly_smiling_face:

You would be surprised how stiff and strong even a 25% cubic infill is. 5 to 6 walls and 25% is about all the higher I will go.

I had one of the boxes split when I riveted the receptacle to the side. After that, I increased the strength and increased the rivet hole. It was the holes near the opening (where the lid/cover goes) that were the problem.

I need to learn/edit specific layers for this strength rather than apply over the entire object.

Cost: $1, selling them for $50. I don’t know how I got along without this device.




If they want their name in it $100

No dross nor bevel to worry about either.

Ummm… What is it?

When Tracker ships a 19’ or a 17.5 aluminum boat, it comes with a $50 depth finder. Well, these guys want the $3000 fishfinder, and this plate covers the holes and old screw holes that Tracker put in the dashboard. The large dept-finder mounted on a large plastic ball that would mount on this plate. It’s ABS and tough as hell. On the first try, I got some white residue on the face but figured out I needed to let it cool first.

Perfect application.

With the golf cart conversion my son-in-law has done, he wanted me to make a metal plate to fill the void of the old charging port. I made one but it did not fit quite right. Now that I have the 3D printer, I could make a perfect patch but just haven’t got a “Round2It.”

It doesn’t take long to figure out all the creative solutions this device afford you. Crazy, wonderful thing.

Now we wait for an affordable 3D metal printer! :wink:

Seems like your Muskrats would find that tasty… :thinking:

Train them to eat that too and you’ll get a lot of resales! :rofl:

I think the printing should be in a lighter, contrasting color (since you’ve got this 300 color printer anyway).

I agree, but they all want black.

3d printing is also good for prototypes for fit and design before final metal production.
