My wackily modified Printrbot Simple Metal. I've had it for 3 years now, and It now has an e3d v6, 120v 300W silicone heater for the bed, 3d printed cable chains, 500W ATX power supply, LCD controller, and a high output cooling fan.

I got a Malyan M180 from Hobbyking sales about a year ago, but had not been really happy about it. Therefore, I took it apart and put lots of different parts/components to it. It is now running better than before and a lot quieter for sure. It has a MKS Sbase V1.3 board with 5 external LV8729 stepper drivers (X, Y, Z and dual extruders) running on Smoothieware. I also changed out all of the NEMA17 motor to high A, low V motors. I have also swapped out the original extruders with Flexion Extruders, and added a capacitive proximity sensor for auto bed tramminh. Since the original power supply was already closed to to working limit, I also added another 450W power supply to handle the load for heated bed. Lots of fun to modify it, and learnt quite a bit too while doing it!

This is my custom machine inspired heavily by the Prusa i3 and MK2-X remixes. I'ts been a work in progress for quite some time but is now finished. It's rocking an E3D V6 in a bowden setup with a Titan extruder (now using a Bondtech BMG). I call it Extrusion i3.

We're using our 3Dator printers for every day printing jobs. Recently added a door and a top enclosure for more consistent prints.
It uses core xy for the movements and features a removable heatbed and bed leveling sensor.

A trusy MK2.

But I'm lucky enough to work in the commercial side of things so I get to play with lots of other machines.

A Flashforge Inventor II

And a Flashforge Guider 2

We also just got a Rais3d N2 Plus, but that's at our main print shop in a different state :cry:

This is my self-made prusa mk2s clone. I bought a water-jet cut frame but everything else i made or printed. Quite a few parts are modified to fit my setup (e.g. power supply cover, stepper mounts and top mounts, custom electronics cover to fit mks base board).

Soon to be upgraded with a MK42 clone.

My little China Gadget. Still new into the whole 3d printing world but already quite a lot useful stuff coming out of my Anet. To print stuff for my main passion, restoration of Mopeds 1950-1980.
Still a work in progress as I only own it now for about 4 weeks and figuring out how to get the best out of it. Maybe go with Tom's Prusa series and build a second one from the scratch.

I have a Prusa Xi3, bought it almost 2 years ago.

Image

I made a custom heat sink as the (non existent) old one was overheating my extruder.
I'm working on adding a part cooling fan and trying to fix ripping (might be due to the rubbery sheet under it).
I might try to add a sock, maybe following megamaking's instructions.

The quality I'm getting out of it is pretty good except for straight lines where I get ripples.

Here is my Original: A Monoprice Select Mini,

And here is my next: the Anet A8,

It's been a blast so far and I can't wait for the first actual build, just gotta get the electronics!
