This is almost a post about how cool the Creality Ender 3 is for a very low-end printer. I put it together quickly, got the slicer working under VMWare (linux) instance of Windows 7 and have been transferring gcode files to the printer via microsd card. It is very slow but mostly reliable if I print with the object lying flat. If I get any height on something eventually it seems to break loose from the bed and is ruined. My idea (so far) seems to be paying off. I am learning the basics, I hope. I can't wait to get the LM printing soon. I have printed several objects on the Ender 3 and am currently printing a Jetson TK1 case for one of my GPU. I have to make 3-more after this one if it goes well. The Ender 3 has been printing the bottom half of the case for 10-hours so far.
