    Gorgeous - can we get a detail shot of the pommel? From what I can see of that Celtic knot, I want to see more!

    You may also consider before putting the refractory in splitting and hinging the box along the bottom (check out how Wayne does his propane tank forges). It is only a little extra work, and if you ever need to fit a large work piece in it lets you expand the forge at that seam.

    Thanks for the project update Paragon! It is looking slick! I've actually been on the board for several years, I just seldom post I've updated my location - I've actually done that twice recently but for some reason, it doesn't seem to save. Hopefully this time it will take! Great project!

    Hey Paragon, This is a great looking design! Any updates? I'm planning out a similar build for later this year and was wondering how this approach is working for you.
  5. lyuv, that second attempt came out lovely. Out of curiosity, how thick was the cross section on that first attempt?

    Awesome setup Curtis! When you start looking to build your new printer give the Prusa i3 Bear variant (by pekcitron) a look. It is intended as an upgrade path for the Prusa i3 MK2/MK3 printers but can also be self sourced. It offers a lot of rigidity and is a great platform if you're wanting to push speeds without a loss of precision. Also sourcing it yourself you get the option to chose which multi material workflows you like the best. It is a really well documented platform with a lot of compatibility with the standard Prusa upgrades out there.

    I'm really excited about this one! Curtis, you've probably already come across it but I thought I would mention it in case you haven't yet: you can do "Lost PLA" and burn it out but an even better option is wax 3D printing filament. MachinableWax makes one and there are several other brands as well. It is a bit tricky to print with from what I've seen, but the burnout is supposed to be a lot cleaner and easier (it is designed specifically for this purpose).

    This might be the coolest thing I've seen today. Highly interested in the results! What printer are you using (also what layer height)?
