I bought a new 3D printer and I love it

More Office Automation Guides are Coming

I have not posted in a while, and for that I blame my 3D printer. I have been watching a few youtubers that use 3D printing for their projects, and it has made me want to get one as well. More guides for office automation are coming, and they will involve using task manager for automating the script I made in the first part of the series.

Creality Ender 3

I chose the Creality Ender 3 for two reasons:

  • It was pretty cheap: $230. Reviews I read said it was very good quality for the price point
  • Reviews I read also said it was a good starter printer.

The only downside to this printer is the amount of noise it produces. When the printer is idle and not printing, the fan on the main board is super loud. When the Ender 3 is printing, the steppers make these high pitched screeches to go with the fan noise.

One of the main things I like about this printer is that a lot of people print things to help customize their Ender 3 and then share it. For example, to address fan noise, people have shared a fan cover for the fan on the power supply and on the main board. Maybe I will create a setup guide for the Ender 3.

Next week I should have a few more posts for the Office Automation series, if 3D printing doesn’t distract me.
