Last night modified my Wanhao with help from izzy, now have Swiss micro hot end, glass bed, z bracing and an enclosure, a raised height spool holder to take Izzys dove tail mounting system and loose filament holder.
Can you guess what I am printing now.

Simplify 3D does a really good job with that model

I've been playing with my 0.25mm Nozzle, I'm doing a Brac dragon at 50% but I'm waiting for some more filament to finish him off, but here are a couple of my test pieces, at 50% their standard print size.

What sort of filament is that?
Is that model on Thingiverse?

Hi Paul,
The material is FilaPrint Premium PLA Bronze Gold, availabe from 3DFilaPrint, they do international shipping, it's a great PLA at a low price. Printing some great results, I want to try my very small nozzles with it next.
The model was on MyMiniFactory, supposedly its more detailed.

You will have to reprint it then :lol:
I want to try out my 0.1mm Nozzle when I have finished off my Braq dragon at 50%.
I may try printing the Braq with the 0.1 nozzle, but I don't think I can find elastic cord small enough to assemble it, I may just have to glue it together as a fixed position, or try a fine copper wire.

Done a bunch of improvements to my UMO++ lately...and currently printing a lot of parts for the #gudoZGE. Will update my thread here with a bunch of photos soon. But for now here's what I have printed and mounted so far :)

Pff been so busy the last weeks... We built our house as a turnkey solution but I had no clue how much work remains after they are "finished" with it.

Guys I need your advice: I'm demo'ing my 2 3D printers on a kids-tech-happening this weekend and the previous years I've always had them printing something that took about 30 minutes a piece. I've gotten some remarks from the kids that they don't see much happening. I'd like to use a smaller model this time. Something that prints in a matter of minutes but still speaks to the kids. (as in no cube or something). Do you guys have any suggestions?

Been there, done that...although I also finished painting/wallpapers/floors in the whole house except for the "wet" rooms...and built a garage. 6 yrs later there are still things that are not finished...and with two young kids and a wife...there isn't much room for once own projects :P
