Successful first print


#1

Just got my printer yesterday, followed the set-up guide here online and skipped the tutorial print.

Immediately went for a toolhead holder.

after about thirty minutes of dealing with the first layer curling i finally got it to stay down and didn’t have too much trouble for the rest of the print.

Medium Default settings, Temperature at 200°C
And I haven’t even sanded/touched up the part yet.

Curious question however, has anyone had any experience painting/staining PLA looking forward to print some warhammer models in the future and would like to know what kind of paint would be best.

i’ve been painting 3d printed unicorn horns with acryl painting and it works just fine. Have been reading on different model painting sites and some of them uses hobby oil painting for that purpose. I had some oil paint lying around and it didn’t work and never dried completely.
