    Op - what do you print with it?

    I printed parts for board games, models for nieces and nephews, custom brackets to mount bike racks on a trailer, parts for my underwater camera gear……

      … custom mounts for phones and bike computers, storage containers for a variety of objects (including a travel case for my double edge razor), a custom USB charger for my PEBBLE smartwatch ……..

      The plastic is strong enough to support bikes on a trailer? I wouldn't have thought that.

      •  

        PLA solid brackets (10mm thick), through bolted with stainless steel bolts. Washers were critical as I was using the PLA mounts as guides for the bolts, holding spacing etc.

          They survived a couple of thousand km road trip.

            @Rolts: These were used to attach roof rack style bike racks to 40mm square tubing going across the tailer. The standard fitting hardware didn't fit the square tubing. Used 65mm long stainless steel 5mm bolts and designed the 3D printed parts to locate the bolts, cross braced with 5mm thick aluminum plate. Worked for me.

    This isn't a sale to be honest. It's a older model now, and this price has been done many times before. Plus its a refurb anyway? (not that it matters too much but still the value is less). While it is a good printer, the Ender 3 or similar for the same price would be a better value buy

      It's a clearance of the final stock.
      Current recommended price from the Wanhao Australian site is $639.95 for the same machine, although no current stock.

      The machine is not readily available from Aldi any longer, so this may be a reasonable price for those wanting to try 3D printing and who missed out on the earlier Aldi sale, and subsequent reduction in price.

    Solid printer, but honestly money would be better spent on an Ender 3.
    An Ender 3 is cheaper, has a bigger following (which means more shared knowledge), and is easily upgradeable.

      The Ender 3 resume print function would be handy. Only had one power interrupted print job. Unfortunately it near the end of an 8 hour+ print. Had to start over with the Cocoon Create.
      Apart from that, the Cocoon Create has been really reliable, with consistent output.

    Use this to print a newer better 3d printer. You're good to go!

    If you have an object can you scan it, then reproduce it. I'm thinking plastic parts from vehicles like body mouldings and light lenses.

    Answer - yes - https://www.instructables.com/id/3d-Scan-Anything-Using-Just...

    Next question can you print UV stable clear light lens type stuff, or with a silver finish? Maybe a clear lens painted silver inside.
