    Hello all,
    Just ordered a Creality CR10 3D printer on line. I have been building in the hobby for years with my hands, old school using wood.
    I want to print things like superstructure, turrets and parts for the internals like gun mounts, pump housings and such. How in the world do I get started?
    Thanks,
    Bob

    Got the printer all set up. Printed a dog for my first print. Came out very nice. Now I need to figure out how to get the files on this website to the printer.

    Bob,

    If you whine and complain and don't tell us what kind of problems you're having or questions you have, we can't help you.

    Believe it or not, some of us do want to help you.

    :)

    Last night I was able to print out a secondary turret for Bismarck. I am happy with the quality of the print.

    So you’d recommend this printer? How large of an item can you print with it?

    First print using ABS. Printed a German motor launch. Went very well. Prints much nicer than PLA. Heated the nozzle to 223 C and the bed to 93 C with scuffed tape and hairspray. No issues at all!
