Since getting the 3D printer I already had so much fun, however there were still few things which could go better. The major one was its illumination. As you see on the picture below, all the top of the printer is pretty dark, making it quite difficult to service and operate.

Another trip to Bunnings and voila – let there be a light! Switch is located on the right side and all cabling went into central-vacuum-cleaner cabinet, which I ripped out.
