Canberrra, Australia. Got my Rostock Max V2 about a month ago..loving it.
I've been making a few antenna mounts and stuff for my other hobby - ham radio.

Fitted an E3DV6 hot-end after melting my original... :shock:
I am waiting on my Trick Laser Arms and Tracks. :D

My epic fails so far:
- melting my stock hot end's PEEK tube (poorly fitted Thermistor...my bad)
- Crushing the E3DV6's little %$#$@!! black grommet that holds the bowden tube in place and having to make do with the stock hot end's little grey one instead. :oops:

Epic Yays so far:
- Strapping down my squid pole antenna with a 3d printed sleeve - solid as a rock in 40 Km hour wind.
- Mounting a 3 element 2m/70cm yagi antenna on 3d printed mounts and making SOTA contacts

Welcome Adanw,

Bad luck on the crushing haha.

Is HAM radioing still big these days? would be cool to see pics of your antenna mount. What size nozzle did you go for on the E3d? running 1.75 filament?

How is your outter perimeter levelling on your bed? Mine's a challenge.

:) welcome!

Ah Canberra.. My birthplace... I miss the roundabouts.

I also went to school there. The AIE, where they teach computer game stuff :)
