- 3D printing
I bought a Wanhao Duplicator 4X printer a few months back, and it's now about time I did some pictures.
I've built a cupboard above the printer to hold the spools. In the cupboard there are two rechargeable dehumidifiers - and currently the humidity is 32% (which is about the lowest I've seen from this):
To the side of the cupboard there is a slot where I can also insert and remove large PCBs (since they also need to be kept away from humidity):
And underneath the cupboard there's three holes to allow the filament to leave. There are actually more, but the end ones aren't really that useful (I feel they put too much strain on the printer):
In the cupboard there is also a temperature and humidity sensor:
And the dehumdifiers change colour to show when they need recharging (which is a simple matter of removing them from the cupboard and then plugging into the mains for a few hours). On the left, it's okay; on the right it needs recharging:
