    lots of goodies on the shelves to start replicating and hope to make some useful items.
    some pics of the small and cozy area where this will be going down.

    I was thinking if there is a dye dam clip setup that would work for the automag, maybe it can be made to work, or 3D print a modified version of those clips,
    as you can see in one of the pics I have plenty of clips to spec from

    I know nothing about 3D printers or how they work or what materials are used for the part so here is my question. Is there a type of clear colored material you could use to make parts? I have been dreaming of a Mag made with as many Red/clear/ Acrylic type parts as possible? Just curious.

    everything that involves your NEW 3D printer should be worth your time since you just got it and you are still learning...at least that would be a good way to look at it? but thats just me man...im still waiting to see a finished project from ya big Dawg...haha sarcasm

    thanks for the dates,

    come to find out the pico print will be on hold,
    for some reason they sent me an awesomely warped print bed,

    im going to ask them in they can give me the specs for the holes in the bed and ill send a request to a machinist here, if they have the time to make me a billet aluminum bed,
    since the ones they use are punched/cut aluminum, this way I know we are set, problem is I don't know how the heating element for my bed is attached.

    so big prints are kinda funky right now.

    printing one half of a pico shell now.
    I got a glass top for my print bed, its too thick so ill get new beds sometime soon.

    still need some fine tuning for the printer, but wont know where the tuning needs to be done until pico shell is done tonight.
    I really hope I can start producing these.

    3D printing as it stands today, in my humble opinion isn't the greatest thing. but that could change tomorrow.

    working on cads to produce a chop/recycle/extruder.
    after I weigh the cost of making the machine then ill see if its worth me making it or finding someone to recycle my filament that has been used,
    I haven't research outside sources yet but it is something I have been wanting to do. someone on youtube made one but it was only making what looked like strips of gum.
    so at least I know it can be done just have to lathe up some rollers to for the extrusion into 1.75 mm filament again.

    just have to make sure I have enough scrap to make a sizable roll of recycles filament.

    Dont worry, if your like me, you will have more then enough to recycle.

    How bad was the bed damaged? Mine so far has been doing very good, however I have had no luck at all with the pico hopper. I swear every time I try to print any of the parts, something goes wrong, from power failures to the print coming loose, to computer crashes (which I just replaced). My favorite thing I have built is a pair of plastic tweezers so that I dont damage the kapton covering on the bed.

    extruding machines can blow breakers or outlet breakers a lot.
    my stuff is sticking great, the pico is lifted on the bed at the nose, the support material is really no cooperating, but 6 more hours ill have a shell printed.
    I made the gear heart for my wife turned out great.

    I use and abs acetone mix to coat the bed a little helps stick the projects no problem.
    the bed was just a hair warped so I went and got glass. it makes taking prints off easier since I can remove the bed. ill throw up some pick when I get home from class of the pico shell. it should look like a Frankenstein mess.

    if you need help I can try to assist with the printer stuff.
    * oh and I bought mor filliment, and a 36 yd roll of 8" kapton
    thanks,
    KNM.
