Thanks Paul, yes, I'm getting through the accessories, but I'm still on the learning curve so some are taking a few goes to get them acceptable.

I had to do the tweeter holder 3 times before I managed to get something worth keeping.

I assume the led bar is for a work light? I'm using a torch at the moment. Do you have yours wires into the Felix controller?

yes, it's a 12V LED bar ~ 420mm long that I had lying around and had previously ordered from dx.com. I just run it from the 12V 3D printer PSU lines. I run mine without the switch as I have the wires coming out the wrong side.

Apart from the test prints, my first print jobs where the Felix tweezers holder: http://forum.felixprinters.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=97 then the spool holder kit (this is found in the Felix download section). Don't forget the LED bar as well: http://forum.felixprinters.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=105



Yes tweezer holder was my first print, and it gets used all the time.

LED Bar very handy especially if you're in a dark room

The Blue ebay filament has arrived and so begins the epic "Doctor Who Copyright Violation of 2014"

It's doing a pretty good job of printing in mid-air. I suppose I'll se when I get it off the bed in about 3 hours time.

That one turned out pretty well. I printed it at 50%. When I tried to print it at 100% I ended up with a blob of plastic wrapped around the extruder after 4 hrs of printing.
