It hasn't been long since I've started 3D printing, but I've found myself consistently using a few tricks that I'd like to share here.
While there are many discussions on what to use for plastic adhesion to the heatbed when 3D printing, we've found one very easy solution that we're always using now for the aluminium heatbed.
Here's a video of it:
Having spent quite a lot of time and effort building our Baron 58 cockpit simulator, it was clear that next time it would be better to have access to more automated techniques such as CNC and 3D printer.
Seeing some of 3D-printed parts that people used in their cockpit projects, as well as some other printed models, it seemed that 3D printing quality was not good enough for parts requiring visual accuracy without additional refinement.
At last, as 3D printers became more accessible, we have decided to buy one of the cheap Prusa-clone 3D printers. Having reviewed several similar models, we chose FLSun i3 kit with aluminium frame available online at the price of $200.
