Kelly the Carver's LR3(squared) Build

No, you’re not seeing double…

I wasn’t sure if I should make a new thread or keep adding to the other but this LowRider is going to be miles different from the Bumble so here goes…and oh yes, I’ve got plans for this one too baby. Here’s a tease…I’m going to be using this one in part to help learn some skills I’ll put to use on the 3d print project that happens after the LR32 printing has completed!
Have too much filament laying around doing nothing.

CR10S Pro???

Ha! I’m ashamed to show it here because I feel like it “should be” an MP3DP but I sure do love the massive build area of this thing. And man alive has it ever been reliable for me - for years and years.

Weirdest/best thing of all - it was gifted to me in some real bizarre Covid moment where a “secret santa” gave me the printer and said “print the ear straps and I’ll take care of getting them to where they are needed”. And then he bought another large format printer for a buddy of mine too. AND he paid for all the filament. We must have printed tens of thousands of those straps I’m sure and this CR10 just kept on rolling without any major issue. One burned out hotend fan (hence the orange WAGO but not WAGO things) and I think one replaced print bed after adhesion just got too poor. But that’s it.

No shame at all! I have one I bought new back in 2019ish and until I decided to upgrade the hotend and get busy half way though and never finish it was still a functioning machine and printed very well! I still have it, down in the basement ready to come out of retirement any time its needed lol

Parts are starting to pile up. All of the long prints are done. This is going to be such a fun build!

Just burning up any PLA I have sitting around. Although I’m reluctant to cut open the clear spool for some reason. Not sure what on earth I’m keeping that one around for…odd. I didn’t even know I had it.

Tell ya this much…once the prints are all ready there wil be one last tease posted here and then a possibly lengthy delay while the build takes shape. I won’t spill the beans prematurely on this one like I did the Bumble build. Ha!

Definitely no shame. I still regularly use my Ender 3 V1. I have done a few upgrades to it (Z rails, KevinAkaSam dual z belt and an H2V2S extruder plus Klipper on a Manta E3EZ board)… wait, is it still technically an Ender 3…

I’m through Spool #1 including the partial brown I’d finished off to kick things off. All of the LR32 bits are printed and moving on to their next step. Still three more spools worth of printing to go for this bad boy though! Can’t wait to see it all come together.
