Okay, so the resin printers are still not set up on the garage, but I did manage to acquire a Elegoo Neptune 2 printer, and I am having a blast. I will try and document my adventures here, and give any insight I can as I go along. So, first here are some pictures of the neptune 2 after set-up. The manual leaves a lot to bw desired as far as set-up, but elegoo has an excellent video showing how to build the neptune 2, so it was very easy to put together. I was doing the build leisurely, so it probably took an hour and a half:) Next is elegoo's test model (honestly, I would have preferred some kind of chess piece): I needed a cover for a PSP missing a battery door: And of course I needed a Yoda extruder knob:) And a tool holder (I need to modify it a bit to get it to go on properly, pictures completed incoming) And starting to test print Mia Kay's scatter terrain: and finally a belated birthday present for my 12 year old: I cannot wait to set up my resin printers, but for now I am having a blast with the Neptune 2!
So after seeing video reviews from people like Uncle Jessy and VoG(?), I was finally able to score a Neptune 2 before they went unavailable again :( So, does anyone else have this printer and have any pros/cons on it, and maybe some tips/tricks to get the best out of it? And what would everyone recommend for filament?
