Hey all! It’s me again after a long hiatus!

I managed to get my hands on a Creality CR10 in January, and have been learning the system ever since. Last week I started an ODST Silenced Pistol build, using the printer.

Initially, I didn’t level the bed correctly, and the first print wasn’t fantastic. But this is how we learn. I went back, levelled the bed, and tried again. This time we got both a handle and a barrel printed!

But I want to note, this wasn’t at all perfect. Hindsight taught me that I should have printed vertically, with Two Penny and Zak Moussa sending me a few videos showing me a few different tips and tricks on printing.

It resulted in a print that did need a large amount of sanding, filling, priming and repeating to insanity. And overall it wasn’t perfect. Due to the print being on it‘s side, I lost a lot of details like the vents on the left side.

This pistol’s been a fantastic learning curve for me, as a guide for what not to do the first time round and a lesson in hubris.

But this isn’t my last print, as I learn with each print, my process and practice will become better, because practice makes perfect!

Awesome work on the SOCOM QueenBHartigan! Some parts fresh off the bed looked a bit rough but your impeccable finish work made for a beautiful completed prop.
It’s okay, I know the barrel was pure tragedy when it came off first time round. It took the European regiment to tell me that and even then I was far too adamant on trying to see it through.

They were right
