ELEGOO_Neptune_2.jpgA few post back talked about assembling my Elegoo Neptune 2 FDM 3D Printer.  Well later that night after leveling the bed a few times.  Gave the test print a try.  That took about an hour (I think).  Once it was done.  I must say I was impressed on how well it turned out.  After letting it cool down.  It came right off the build plate without any trouble.  Now the next step is to find something cool to print next.

ELEGOO_Neptune_2.jpgWell today (June 27, 2021) I got my Elegoo Neptune 2 FDM 3D Printer assembled.  Took me a few hours.  Not because it was over complicated.  It was just the paper instructions were good but not helpful for me in spots.  Luckily there is an instructional video on the SD card.  That help out a lot.  Noticed that the print bed moved a bit.  There is a spot in the video that shows how to fix that.  However there is another problem that is not in the manual or video.  The printer doesn’t sit very level.  Seen on a Neptune Facebook page how to fix that.  There are four screws on the legs you loosen.  This will help it lay flat, then you tighten then back up.  My next step is to plug in the wires, level the bed and do a test print.  Will be back with another update.

ELEGOO_Neptune_2.jpgIt was a week ago that I ordered a Elegoo Neptune 2 FDM 3D Printer off Amazon.ca.  At the time it was estimated to arrive on the 25th (today).  But early in the week received an email saying the shipment would be delayed until the 28th.  Then on the 25th another saying it couldn’t be delivered.  However the a slip in the mail box to pick it up at the post office.  So went and got it.  My plan is now on next day off it to put it together.  There will be many more posts talking about this 3D printer.
