Whatever fitting stuff I can find on the Net I'll try to scale down/up to the required scale.

So far I printed a Retro fridge, a coffee/espresso machine and I just started on the bar. Learned a lot generating the 3D model kept drinking "Feeling Calm" tea instead of coffee. The draft version will take 8 + hours and the final version using the wood filament probably twice as much.

Whenever they write about multiday prints in the user groups I just shake my head.

The blue background in SketchUp just indicates that it's upside down from the printing position.

I guess the one advantage with printing one can do something else while it's working.

The test print in coarse mode using ordinary PLA worked very well. Different story with the wood filament, but it's just a matter of trying. Third try is moving the printing position and rotating it to a 45ยบ angle. Haven't figured out where the warp stems from, but the print is about twice the size of the pallets which also took fiddling to get them to "stick".
