A 3D printer diary – The Purchase

My son managed to blag an outrageous deal in a closing down sale, and we got an ex-display 3D printer for an outrageously cheap price. It’s the Dremel 3D20 (not the latest model) and it has a few parts missing:

  • the spool lock – the barrel thing that holds the filament spool. Pretty important for operation.
  • The SD card – which contains the software and some sample 3Drem files. Pretty important for operation.
  • The Levelling device – a piece of card 0.3mm thick. Pretty important too
  • The removal tool.

For the price we paid, I was prepared to give it a go, despite the above shortcomings. It can’t be that hard to fix a 3D printer.
