A diary to chronicle the creative design of an additive manufacturing 3D printer that welds, layer by layer, a computer generated model using common welding wire and a TIG welding machine.

Finally ! ! ! Welding again ! ! !
16 May was the last major welding session. Back then I was trying to knock out a decent piece to display at the Makers Faire.
Today is going much better. This is my second attempt after 3 months of mods and updates to the machine.
Definitely in the ballpark now. The stack height measures 20% too high after five layers. The weld is decent and complete.
