PrintrBot Plus and few mods = great quality 3d prints

Two weeks ago I bought a 3D printer called PrintrBot Plus. I never had a 3D printer before. This technology is completely mind blowing to me.

Fast forward, I made quite a bit of adjustments and upgrades.
Here are the mods I have done to my PrintrBot Plus 3D printer:

  • Replaced the tip with 0.35mm tip (took 10 minutes to replace, very easy procedure).
  • Put a fan to cool down the print while it is being printed, need to get a smaller fan though.
  • Put a glass above the heated bed and Kapton tape over the glass.
  • Tightened all belts.
  • Printed out glass clips and made the heated bed to be adjustable via springs.
  • Replaced power supply with 350W power supply for quicker heating of the nozzle and the heated bed.
In this post I will share photos of the models I have printed on the adjusted and calibrated 3D printer, enjoy the show:

And a gallery to show all pictures in one convenient window:
