Please don't!!

My 2nd printer should be here Thursday. I hope having 2 allows me to catch up on orders, lets me start a marketing campaign (I have a lot of ideas, and each usually results in a quick increase of sales), get to Ethan's watch, print prototype of new products I am designing, print the organizers my dad wants me to design, and print random fun stuff I find online. There are so many dumb things I want to print for personal use - spice rack, battery holder, socket holder, wrench holder, etc

Print all your other stuff before mine. I am in no hurry. Please let us know how your other stuff turns/works out!

Of course. I know you're just busting balls. I'll get the watch stand in whenever I can next. Like I said, it will be exciting to print something that isn't a rectangle used for a toy

New printer came today. Was a little easier to put together than the little guy. Running my first print tonight to help catch up on orders. Auto bed leveling is nice, I should install the attachment I have for my first printer since I bought it months ago. I just didn't want to have the down time to do it.

Here is the ender 3 and ender 5 plus side by side. They look different because they operate very differently. I now need to clean the rest of my counter (not pictured) because it's a mess Image

That's badass! Does the big one just lower the bed as it prints? Looks like the smaller guy holds the bed static and raises the print head.

Yep. The Ender 3 (smaller) the bed moves forward/backwards and the nozzle moves up/down, left/right.
Ender 5 the bed moves up/down, nozzle is forward/backward, left/right.

It's funny that my new printer can do nearly 16" tall prints, but I am only doing things 7mm tall at the highest because of my design. I just needed a bigger bed to fit more pieces.

Hopefully I can squeeze this in soon. I haven't forgotten you.

Let's be honest, I'm going to end up getting another big printer, it's just a matter of weeks.

No rush. My watches charge just fine without a stand. I am excited to see some of the other stuff you planned on printing too

It was a matter of days. Hopefully here this week still. I'll have 3x 3D printers until I give Wilkins my wittle one.

Ethan, I have not forgotten about your watch stand! I'm almost caught up on orders, assuming I don't get another huge one.

Yes Kyle. Last night I was the brief owner of 3x 3D printers. Now I'm down to 2 big ones with cwilkins doing a rent to own program on my first one with all the nice upgrades I've added.

Tomorrow I'll likely hit 50 sales on the Etsy store. That isn't 50 transactions, but 50 total products sold. I've also been adding new things - like a chest freezer and a deeper fridge.
