First thing printed !! The wingnuts to adjust the hotbed are not very confortable to turn, it is a two hands job, so the first thing I printed are these knobs. As I had only some nylon to print with, I added a .5mm skirt to make the piece stick better to the bed as in the first try it got loose and went moving around. I printed without supports, and when the print was high enough, I paused and drop the M3 nuts in, so the top side would have something to lay on. Don't put the nuts too soon or the extruder will catch on them.
I created these links where you can find all common filaments and spare parts at the best prices. These are just links to selected eBay and Aliexpress items, where I normally buy spare parts and materials for my printer, prices are excellent and products are good. If you buy something from here you will support me a little bit to make these projects.
