This object was made in Tinkercad for the My Mini Factory TinkerCAD competition.
This is an intricate model of a 3D printer. This object is chock full of details, from a detachable roll of filament to a miniature LED screen, SD slot, and knob on the front. To add extra detail to this object, this print comes with 3 parts that you can glue together and put in your 3D printer - the extruder, with fans on either side, the print head, and the filament guide that loops around to the back of the 3D printer.
1) Print this object using the Printing Tips listed below.
2) Carefully remove all 5 parts of this 3D printer from the print bed, and remove all of the supports. Be careful when removing the supports from the back wall, as you can easily tear the columns in the back. you can get around this by removing the first layer or two of the supports, pressing your thumb against each of the columns one at a time, and using a knife or your other hand to remove the supports.
3) Slide the roll of filament onto the back of the 3D printer.
4) Arrange the printhead so that the beams holding it up are facing toward the back wall and the right wall of the printer. The printhead itself should be resting against the left wall of the printer. Apply a dot of glue to the side of the printhead, lay the 3D printer on its side, and glue it on.
5) Attach the extruder to the printhead using a dot of glue. Hot glue is recommended so that you don't have to clamp it down for too long.
6) Attach the filament guide to the printer by attaching a dot of glue on both ends, and pressing the short end onto the printhead and the long end onto the box housing the motor on the back, right where the bowden tube would go.
7) You are done! Have fun with your newly printed 3D printer. If you want to show it off to friends, take a picture of it fully assembled inside the Ultimaker 2+, the 3D printer it was based off of.
