A warm hello from the black forrest…


Recommended Posts


Hi there!

My name is Pierre and I live with my family near Freiburg in the south of Germany. I am now over 50 years old and have been involved in 3D production since 1980, when I started programming a plotter and a circuit board drilling machine.

I started my 3D journey a few years ago with a JG Aurora - probably the worst printer I have ever owned. The further way led me over a Prusa MK3S to a Voron 2.4 with 350 mm^3. Currently I added a Bambulab X1C with 2xAMS. For me, however, 3D printing is just a tool to add useful and functional things to my workshop and our household. Electronics, programming and the love for wood have led to the fact that I have now planned and built several portal milling machines - from a small 300x300mm milling machine based on wood to a large one made of heavy aluminum profiles with an ATC spindle, a big vacuum plate and a travel of 1300x1100x30mm, where the milling head can also process vertically clamped parts beyond the table.

When time permits besides family, work and workshop, I enjoy skiing and moving around on the water with wind power. I am glad to have found this forum and its kind and helpful people.

Thanks for the nice welcome,

Welcome aboard Pierre, good to have you here. Those are good looking machines you've got there. There are a lot of people here (most?) who use 3D-printing as a means to another end, supporting some other activitiy or hobby (including the workshop environment). I look forward to sharing ideas and tapping into some of that experience you have.
