I was milling an acrylic sheet and the sheer amount of noise and dust made me think this is just not feasible to do in a small apartment. Then I thought turn the Shapeko 2 into a 3d printing beast. It took quite alot of custom components such as the extruder mount plate and end stop switch mount plates. Plus designing a build plate that could be manually leveled. The mdf bed was very handy for simply mounting stuff to it such as the power supply unit and the electronics box. It prints beautifully if you make sure the acceleration and speed is set right. Acceleration set at 500mm/sec^2 and speed at 30mm/sec. I explain how I built the mods for this machine in the next few posts. Plus a few examples of prints and what settings I used. Peace out.
