Say Hello to my NEW Little Friend – Enter the Tevo Tarantula

A few months back I ordered myself a Tevo Tarantula 3D Printer for my birthday. It was a collective gift from my family. Since it arrived it has been sat in the box waiting for me to build it up – but before I could do that, I needed to juggle some things around in my workshop to make some space for it.

Making Room for my Tevo Tarantula 3D Printer

So right now, the Tevo Tarantula is only about 80% completed. I built it up this far and then decided before going any further I would put it in the space where it will live permanently and then print out and install some of the recommended add-ons and upgrades before going any further.

But before I could install the Tarantula, I had to clear some space so I decided I would build a small partition wall between my CNC Mill and my two 3D printers because the milling dust was making its way to my 3D printers and contaminating both them and my prints.

TA DA – Much better….

Building my CNC Booth and Shelf

I had some wood left over from lining out my shed so I used what I had to hand and set about building my little partition wall and a little shelf under the CNC machine to hold the control box which keeps it free from dust and debris and I can also store all of my CNC router / milling bits in one safe place too.

And this is how the CNC looks in its new home.

Finishing the Tevo Tarantula 3D Build

Now that everything is placed where it should be, I can finish assembling the Tevo Tarantula including the upgraded parts.  Once this is done, the Tarantula will be permanently installed by way of mounting brackets which will secure it to the bench.

I am quite keen to get the Tevo Tarantula 3D Printer assembled and pressed into service so I can move on to other things. I am hoping to complete all my other projects I have going on at the moment so I can move on to something involving flight and this is where I’ll be needing both 3D printers up and running.

Once I’ve had few hours of printing with the Tarantula 3D Printer under my belt, I’ll come back and let people know what I think of it.
