Hey guys, I figure this belongs in the DIY thread.

I have been toying around with a 3d printer and it has gotten me out of a few reef related jams. Mostly small things like replacing a cracked return elbow and replacement mounting brackets for controllers. Printing is finicky for in tank items with PETG but regular PLA material for external is super easy.

Reef2reef has a whole section on different 3d templates and there are plenty more on thingiverse.com

If anyone ever needs something printed custom or otherwise shoot me a message. Happy to help you out if I can.

Just an ender 3v2 here. Limited upgrades outside of software and fan upgrades. Like my tank I like the printer to run nice and quiet.

If you go faster, you will sacrifice quality. I ran into the same "speed" challenge a few years ago, found best solution was to have 2 printers :)

You are so right BUT there is a fine line in better speed then full blown super fast. Just trying to find that sweet spot. Stock speed is OK but there is room for more speed in there some where. As for 2 printer I have Resin printer to one more print my wife is going to kill me. LOL

It takes a lot of time and effort to perfect your prints. It's what I've been doing for the past few years. I've mostly been making light spill shades (shrouds/covers) for the Radion and Neptune Sky lights and most recently a frag plug/mount system for SPS and Euphyllia coral.

I get custom requests every now and then which pose more of a challenge, but I'm having fun helping out my fellow reefers :)

I ordered Creality ender 3, hope it will be a great printer. I Bought just for home use. If interested, I can share the products that I will print on it (if everything goes well with the printer). However, I still need to learn how to create models of what I want to print..

I have the ender 3v2. I use tinkercad to design prints. It’s not that bad to use after watching a few YouTube videos

Nice of you to offer. I would like one printed. Not reef related. It’s a nano presso dosing funnel.

If you need this printed please contact me at 3DAQUARIUMSOLUTIONS@GMAIL.COM

It should be made out of PETG since it will be in contact with food and I am sure you will want to clean it on occasion. I have plenty of colors.
