Hello all,

Slowly piecing together the 3D printer on loan from FabLab and starting 
to need some parts, including heated print bed, thermistors etc.

Please let me know your preferred suppliers in NZ



Small 19" rack cabinet now has wooden top and base. Base has casters, so 
is moveable

3D printer will it on the top.

Space cleared within BR05, so the unit can be stored away from prying eyes.

Secured a 12V / 55A, and mains distribution block inside the cabinet

Andrew Starr has very kindly donated a capable PC to live within the 

Control of the PC is planned over Ethernet using RDP, or similar, so 
cabinet will not need screen or keyboard.

Initially planning to use win7, and MatterControl, Markek has the 
required setup file, which should help commissioning immensely

Have schematics of RAMPS board, wiring has been labelled.

Project slowly coming into focus, about another 20 hours work to sort 
out the print bed, and tidy things up.


PS anyone have a spare DTI and possibly mag base I might borrow ?
