Yeah its normal pla not sure on the melting temp. If anyone is good with cad maybe some snaps on the end would work and additional supports on the middle.

That is what I was thinking. I appreciate you printing it for me. Chainsaw sharpening is new for me so that sharpener and some you tubes have really helped me figure it out. Again thanks.

Not the prettiest, but made an egg for Easter. Also added a light. Still need a better way of attaching it.

Just starting to get into 3D printing. I just bought an Ender 5 pro, but haven't printed anything but the basic benchmarking items. I just started my first long print, hoping it goes well and finishes without any issues. I have noticed some weirdness on one part if it, I am hoping I can clean it up when its finished.

Yesterday I needed a jig for installing hardware on new kitchen cabinets. A short time later, I had the jigs printed. Simple and quick.

Fresh roll of filament. Munchkin insists that I continue to print his fleet, so I grabbed him a roll of gray so his ships can be "haze gray and underway".

Also finally trying out my cw key.

A guy down in Baltimore had the cr-10 for sale for only a hundred bucks. He said it was throwing an error whenever he tried to run the extruder. Had thrown away the receipt and it sat. He said that he couldn't return it, which made absolutely no sense since he bought it on Amazon. But whatever good deal for me.

I dug around and figured out that it had a bad thermistor, which was causing the board to error out whenever I try to heat up the hot end. So for an investment of $7 I replaced it in about 20 minutes and got it up and running.
More evidence that Creality's QA is just not reliable.
But hey, it enables guys like me to get great deals.

Since it has a massive build volume, I think I'm going to focus on making this one for making large parts quickly, which is often an issue for the robotics teams.

Already researching high flow hot ends, and they replace the Bowden feed with direct drive to open up more options for materials. Just need to find out how that will affect speed

I don't know much about printing, I assume you can scan an object and make another one. Well, a piece of metal fell on my old Sears compound miter saw handle and broke it into pieces while I was reaching to get a 10x2 board. The top half is good, the bottom half shattered into many pieces, some I've not found because I have to clear a bunch of stuff out of the way to find them. If I find all of pieces and glued them back together could it be scanned and printed? AND how much would it cost? I think the saw bout $130 when I bought it on sale many years ago and the parts are gone from sears.

Not a lot of people have a scanner, but you would be surprised what it available on the web.

For instance 137.212290 Craftsman Miter Saw Handle by CalvinChristopher

See if you can find a part number or post the model of saw. If the stl file is out there, I can print it for you

That would great if you can find and build another one.
@mommucked I was able to get the files to were I think they will print good. The handle is just a little bit bigger than my print bed, so I'll have to make each handle into two pieces (see pic for example) and then glue them together. Either way if everything fits with your saw, it will still make it useable. I'll start printing tonight, but may take a couple days to finish everything. I'll get up with you later once I see how they come out.

If for whatever reason this isn't going to work for you, it should fit on my CR10. It will definitely fit in the S5 at work ;-)

This may be a case where PLA isn't going to hold up, ideally it should be in nylon (probably what it was originally) but ABS likely good enough (I can't do nylon at home yet). Or PETG. This reminds me I've been meaning to try some on the CR10.

I'll give it a try with PLA, it should be strong enough as long as he doesn't have more metal dropping on it. I also have ASA but I would worry about warp on a part that big and flat.
