First world problems solved with 3D printing

I started a new YouTube playlist in which I solve first wold problems with 3D printing. There are unfortunately a lot of these problems which makes life almost unbearable. With these solutions I will give it all to solve some of them with the use of 3D printing! The first...

My first 100 subs!

I just have reached my first milestone with my YouTube channel which is an astonishing 100 subscribers! Why is this such a big deal? Well, you have to have at least 100 subs to claim a custom URL. So instead of: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqfMW0tMZEciSXQym8x0EoQ it is now https://www.youtube.com/c/properprinting which is somewhat easier...

New Ko-fi page!

I have created a new page on Ko-fi on which I will add photos about the projects I am working on together with some random stuff because I just like making pictures. As you would have probably figured out I create YouTube videos about my 3D printing projects and there...

Swappable hot end for Creality CR-10

I started my 3D printer upgrade series with the quick tool change which is still one of my coolest upgrades. However, it missed something because if you change to a different tool, you always have to place the hot end somewhere. With the swappable hot end it is possible to...

Carbon fiber reinforced nylon filament!

OK, I cannot hold my enthusiasm. I recently discovered nylon filament which is beyond my expectation but is still a bit flexible, a bit too flexible for some applications. And now I created my first print with this nylon enforced filament! This is, hands down, by far the best filament...

New thing: Quick tool change for Creality CR-10

I decided to upgrade my Creality CR-10 printer and came across this cool laser head which can easily be added to this printer. There are four small neodymium magnets on the laser head that allow it to be attached to the metal extruder shroud. I wasn't convinced that this is...

PLA wood filament is awesome!

I love woodworking and of course 3D printing. I have bought oak and mahogany filament to find out what I can do with it. It is so cool that you can create complex 'wooden' shapes which are otherwise impossible or extremely difficult to make. I have created this business card...

New thing: Linear toggle clamp

This design is based on a toggle clamp and the difference is that the last part of the stroke is linear. As an example, this feature is useful for applications in which a probe must come in contact with a PCBA to test or program it. This is where I...
