Wanhao Duplicator D9 Bed Leveling Modification: The Next Level.

D9_Bed_Mod_01c
I decided to make an improvement to the Buildplate and Y Carriage on our machines here after coming to the conclusion that the recent updates to the D9's firmware and auto-leveling feature should now be able to make use of the changes I've made. Once you reset your Z, auto leveling will be easier since you are now basically giving it a level bed to start with and can rely on the software. The tension spring system is now, legacy and outdated in my opinion.     Some background on it; I have been using printers with similar features for years now. I've never been a fan of constant, and eventual (still) periodic adjustment to bed leveling for that sought after first layer goodness, not when we have already had the means to do away with that system altogether. I'm used to having my printers tuned to set it and forget it....

3D Printing Safety: Angus (Maker's Muse) Offers Some Great Tips...

Still-from-Deadpool
I 'm not one for always trying to re-invent the wheel, and for both new and experienced 3D printer enthusiasts sometimes it's just plain good to take a look at things to consider when using your machines . This first video covers FDM printing. Resin Printing (SLA/DLP/DUV, ect.) has other considerations and is covered in another video following it. Failure to keep safety in mind can create potentially dangerous situations.       First and foremost , I want to stress the benefits of subscribing and following Angus (Makers Muse) on Youtube because he's active and been doing this for a very long time. he's recognized in the community the world over as an authority and some of my early learning and enthusiasm was a direct result of this fine gent's contributions to our craft.   His Youtube Channel:    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxQbYGpbdrh-b2ND-AfIybg He also has an active Patreon:   https://www.patreon.com/makersmuse  ...

Wanhao: Bringing 3D Printing To A Classroom Today

Wanhao_Teaching2
The first picture brought such warmth to my heart, and in essence is one of the reasons we do what we do. Mikey Omrani spent some time in the classroom bringing the joy and wonder of 3D printing to some students.   Today's children are our tomorrows- by giving them the tools and time, the next Engineer, Artist, or even Scientist might be inspired for new things. Maybe even a Surgeon or Space Travel Pilot! The possibilities are endless if we give them the start to thinking anything they can dream is possible.   Enjoy!                   Nuff Said'
