Day 1 – 3D Printing

My FlashForge 3D printer arrived yesterday, and after a short & easy setup, it was ready to go. I elaborated on that experience here.

What you’re seeing in this video is the third print I’ve ever created being printed. I designed this in FreeCAD, and it’s a cup that will capture lead wire that bleeds out of a swaging die. More on this later.
