MK2S 3D printer kit assembly

MK2S kit

I ordered the MK2S assembly kit and assembled it successfully. It took more than 8 hours, but it was a great learning experience. Especially the perpendicular X-, Y- and Z-axis was really challenging. Mainly due to the XZ plane (vertical) sturdy frame and the XY plane threaded rods. The latter has nuts and washers with a certain distance before and after the sturdy frame. But as I said, I wanted to know the whole construction, down to the nuts and bolts.

Embarrassing detail: I learned later, the triceratops skull has supports that you need to remove afterwards. And I kept them for a while because I thought it was intended to keep them to make the structure easy to display.

Other models I printed

3D printed models with some flexible part. The squishy turtle jumps a little when you push down on it.

I don't remember the name of the designer on Thingiverse (I will try to find and add later), but the slinky is another interesting flexible toy I printed with PLA.
Not for using it or selling it, it was an interesting thing to evaluate 3D printing and filaments.
