After owning and enjoying a couple of small 3D printers (Da Vinci 1.0 and a Prusa) I decided to take the plunge and get something a little bigger.
After doing months of research I opted on the Formbot T-Rex Plus and I'm very happy with the choice. Sure it was pricey at over $2000 CAD but compared to others in that size range it was a steal. I've got a good 500 hours of printing on it and it's still going strong. One thing to be said is this printer takes up a lot of room on the desk and its quite loud. Normally the noise would'nt bother me but with a big printer come long printing times and after 4 hours it starts to echo around in my head.
Thats why I jumped at the chance when an old Qualstar Tape Library came up for grabs - like (but not) the one here in the picture. Where other people saw an giant, heavy piece of junk I saw a perfect, beautiful enclosure for my big 3d Printer.
The first step was how to get it home......
