Theoretically there is no limit to the size of a printer, look on youtube for

Home made large 3d printers

Bit of a Thread resurrection .


And show how slow I am at getting on with it .


But now the nights are drawing in , did a few mods on the small printer to make it produce better quality.


And starting making more parts for the printer I started last year .


Starting to look like the proper stuff. .. Printed joints and the old chrome bath towel rail.


But still got bits to design on tinkercad online .





Whilst still knocking out the odd set of MGR Bonnet clips .

We should start a list.

What may be unobtainable today might not be tomorrow, providing we know what's needed. It will only get done by focussing on the need.
So far we have the bonnet cable gizmos.
But what else?
