#86330 I have been considering a 3d printer for a while and as interest rates are rubbish at the moment I thought I would treat myself.

This my first print after a test piece and it is a mount for a LiPo battery charger. The charger is a bit of a pain as the holes do not line up well with the stripboard.
I am going to rework my greenhouse monitor this year and want to reduce the size so will be printing a custom enclosure as well. I also have a motion camera in the drive using a Pi and that could also do with a custom enclosure. I thought about using an online printing service but the costs are high and with a few prints I should recoup the cost of the printer - well probably more than a few but I am not going to tell the wife that 8-)

I put the thread inserts in just because we have them at work; but tapping directly into the plastic would be OK.
