Print quality on my K8400 is getting pretty crap, too much hassle to try and fix it. Besides, far better printers out there now (Prusa i3 MK2 here I come!).
So, what can I do with a K8400 with one flaky hot end that is barely worth selling?
What about converting it to be a laser cutter? There are several kits, starting with the Endurance L-Cheapo for under $200 to the J-Tech kits costing near double that.
Anyone had a go at this? I saw one guy who’d converted a K8200, so I guess it’s pretty similar. Be interested to hear from the electronics experts on here on any pitfalls - guess the weird 15V PS is one factor. But not such a big one, right?
