      Hello, this us my first build that up loading to openbuilds, I hope you enjoy it.

      Also sorry in advanced for the lack of picture durring the build.

      This is what I call the Prusa Dragon LR. It is based on the prusa bear modification but with a few differences. This printer is equipped with an SKR 1.3 (only because I couldn't get my SKR 1.4 to work with my BL Touch sensor), and TMC 2209 stepper drivers running Marlin 2.0.6. It is constructed to of 20x40 V-slot openbuilds extrusion(kindly supplied by openbuilds for free, more details later). It is sporting a set of ldo .9 degree stepper motors for X,Y, and E and integrated leadscrew ldo motors for z. And finally it is fitted with both, genuine Hiwin linear rails and a triangle labs dragon extruder, for that super price motion and one super convenient one handed nozzle changes.

      For those who read to the end. Thanks for spending the time on my post and again I hope you liked it. If you have any thought or suggestions please leave a comment below.

      Earlier I said that I had gotten my extrusion for free and there is a good story be hind that.

      Durring my build I had made a couple of mistakes when cutting my extrusion to length. This extrusion I had ordered from openbuilds a week prior with my own money. Needless to say I was bummed out that I would not be able to complete my printer at least mechanically that day. Luckily it was pretty early in the day so I decided to go on google and order some more extrusion. And it was then that I noticed that openbuilds was based in the state that I lived in and it was only 45 minutes away. At that moment I grabed my keys and headed over there. In my my that google listing was for a retail store but when I arrived I had some susspusions. When I entered the building I was greated by an employee and he confirmed my susspission that this was not a rtail stor but only a shipping center or more acuratly that openbuilds was a online retailer only. After I found out I then processed to ask if I still could place an order but just take my order with me. At that point another person from the back and asked why I drove all the way there. I then proceded to tell him my story. What happend next truly stunned me. The man the offered me a deal. The deal was that if he gave me all the parts that I needed to finish my build for free, that all I needed to do was post my build on openbuilds.com. at that point I agreed and now I am holding up my end of the bargain. So thank you very much, and I'm sorry to say that I forgot the name of the gentleman who struck the proposition, but if you happen to read this post. Leave a comment on this post to say hi.
