Here is an date on my Mark v, she’s now complete except for a chain link between each arm back to the centre column, that’s still in the post.. I could have made the chain myself but it would take ages to join all the links together..

The time taken was approx.. 1282 hours/ about 53 days and the best part of 23 rolls were used, the total count was 22,665 gms.

The poor old printers were working almost non-stop for weeks on end, and today was the first time they weren’t running overnight.. And for that we've now got light in the garden..

P.S. I noticed afterwards that the centre light was a bit too high, but I managed to reduce it down a bit by removing 17 cm without any problems..

Buddha once said...

"Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes."

@The Hat You have endured through storm and tempest and tasted final victory as the MKV has risen like a Phoenix. I admire your tenacity and I hope MKV will be there for many years to come.

Go n-eirí an t-ádh leat :thumbsup

Great job. Your lamposts are the Eiffel towers of the 3D world. :)

BTW : The manufacturer of the filament used in your Mark I to V lamps should erect a tall column crowned by a gigantic green hat at the front of the factory. You probably duplicated by two their total sales. ;)

Tell me about it, I’ve just cleared my Amex statement and I am now broke, most of the filament came from Creality thankfully, otherwise I would have had to get a lend from house management to clear the bill…..

I hear they were so impressed by your order that they sent a boatload as a gift but it got stuck in Suez :lol:
