Steel Fisher 3D Printer

I was literally shocked in good sense because the power consumption of Steel Fisher is less than a medium light bulb. This would give me advantage of running a 3D farmer. Five Steel Fishers’ power consumption is about 250 W!

Idle mode: 6.6 W

Printing mode: 41.0 W to 38.5 W
The maxium power consumption was about 60 W when the hotend was turned on after the printing started.
