    More Up-dates....Here’s my latest outburst…

    This is her just hot off the press and she stands 29.3 cm high and 25cm wide, and it took 134 hours to complete using 1684 gms of filament and this was the biggest piece printed yet.

    This section of the project is designed to hold 4 extended curved poles to which I’ll mount the lanterns on, that’s the theory anyway.:D

    One interesting point dough, I reckoned I was going to have a Microsoft issue with the amount of hours that the LED screen could display, you can see that it’s only calculated to show 99:59 hours. (Millennium bug):eek:

    At that point I was about to poop myself, but thankfully the display reset to zero and the printer carried on printing and displayed the extra time calculated, omitting the previous 100 hours, when it finished it did show the total time… ;)

    P.S. Is no one else using their 3D printer these days.. :pop

    This is the latest standard lamp piece.

    It’s the outer Elbow that the lantern will sit on, now all I need is another 3 pieces of this.
    This is fairly small section, standing at 255 mm..

    I was using green filament on another project and was trying to save a bit on the black, which I’m running low on, I waited till the last minute to swap over, because I won’t be getting a delivery of black filament till next week, the bit on the left is scaffolding and the bottom green tube bit will be inserted into another piece and won’t show…;)

    Like the classic combo of peanut butter and jelly, if anyone ever had green filament it would be, of course, you. :)

    Thought that would be fairly obvious @stratman - It's the national colour and it is mandatory to keep several rolls in stock, otherwise the printer Garda (that's the police in Ireland) will descend and confiscate the equipment :):):):):weee
