3D printer for astronomy

Hi,
I think a 3D printer must be perfect for my astronomy hobby. With that I can print adapters and other parts that's not so easy to find.

I will write about the items I print later, but forst I must assemble the printer I bought. When I do this I also get knowledge how to rebuilt it later to achive higher precision.

If you have the same idea, have a look here how long I have come:

Almost there, just have to figure out how to setup the VS Code software to compile and upload the software to the 3D printer. It's my first 3D printer and a lot of new things to learn.

But it's very exiting.

I wrote a little about this 3D printer in the thread where I rebuild my EQ6 mount.
