So even though my CR-10 printer will likely not arrive for a couple weeks I have already been printing some parts to enhance it. The CR-10 user community is huge and active. As a result they have quickly identified potential weak points in the printers design and come up with solutions that can be 3D printed, ironically. I printed a cable strain relief bracket and some enhanced leveling knobs so far but there will be more stuff to come for sure. I can’t wait to start trying to print some bigger objects. The 12″x 12″ x 16″ print volume has some huge possibilities. One of the first things I want to try are printing tray inserts for the center console of the Tacoma to give the big space multiple levels of organization.
I think the pump I have in the back of the chicken coop yard is definitely help to accelerate the removal of standing water. Last night I turned it off. If we can get a few days without rain I would like to dig a hole in the absolute lowest spot back there which is maybe 20 feet from where it is now. I can then put a bucket in the hole and the pump in the bucket to maximize it’s water relocation potential.
