It honestly depends on your budget, how much are you willing to spend?

Here is a great list of prep and upgrades you can do to bring success to your prints:

-Get Vibration Dampners: I can not express how much joy these things have brought many users. The make your machine quiet and greatly decrease ringing in your prints since they ABSORB the vibration coming from your stepper motors. You really only need Two of these for the X and Y axis however you can get another two for the Z-axis drives if you plan on doing a lot of z-hopping.

-BUY FILAMENT IN ADVANCE: get some PLA/ABS/PETG or whatever you want to try printing with. The filament you get with the printer for the most part is garbage HOWEVER I recommend dialing in those settings first then throwing on some nice filament, it'll feel soooo nice. Some commonly accepted/appreciated brands are: eSun PLA+, Hatchbox, Solutech and more

-Get a PEI sheet: Seems like you mentioned this in your post but PEI sheets eliminate the use of gluesticks/tape/hairspray and provide excelent adhesion while making it easy to remove the part after it's cool. This things like to be hot though so increase your bed temp a little at first

-Buy New Fans: The stock hotend/power unit fans are Loud, Noisy and Inefficient. I recommend getting 1 new conrol box fan, 1 new hot end fan and 1 new part blower fan.
You will need 1 40mm fan, 1 50mm fan and a Blower fan or another 40/50mm fan depending on if you print a new hot end mount like a fang.

-Tighten every screw on the printer: You would be surprised how many screws initially are lose either from prior testing or such. Also make sure to test your belt tensions on your printer whne you get it. You want everything tight BUT NOT TOO TIGHT. Give it a snug fit then let it be. Also make sure your belts are 'pluckable' like a guitar string but not tought

-Get some bearings: You may want to get a few ball bearings for when you print out a new filament holder, the stock filament holder is terrible

-Buy some fasteners: M3 bolts and nuts are commonly used on the CR-10S having spares or additional fasteners for adding on parts/printed components to your printer is awesome to have on hand

-Replace the Hotend: This can get a bit frustrating but it can be worth it. If you want you can replace the hotend with something like a volcano or an all metal hot end to print at higher temperatures. With this you can also add on autoleveling if you have the correct mount printed

-Octoprint: I am not very familiar with octoprint since I don't use it myself however I know it can run on a CR-10S. If you want look into how to install octoprint on stock firmware, I know it's pretty easy to use a raspberrypi to remote into your printer as well using octoprint.

-Squash Feet: Replacing your stock machine 'feet' with squash balls or squishy gold balls can also help absorb vibrations from your machine to your table or where it is located. This helps a bit with part quality but it's mostly to reduce the noise carried through your furniture.

-Solder on connectors: If you want you can get some pin connectors to make your fans/electronics easy to switch out depending on your material you are printing, maybe you need a strong part fan or maybe you need a weaker one. It is easy to swap out if it's using a 4pin connector.

-Make an Enclosure: What could be nicer for your printer than a stable environment. Making an enclosure for your printer can help if you live in a rough climate area or if you want to reduce the noise as well.

-Get some Handtools: I'm not sure if you have any or not but some great tools to have are a screwdriver, hexwrenches and a soldering iron depending on how much work you want to be doing on your printer.

I'm a very avid DIY'er but I don't think that price is out of the question nearly to the extent people are complaining about it.

Angle iron (What the stand is made out of), 20$: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-in-x-96-in-Aluminum-Square-Tube-with-1-20-in-Thick-802537/204273939 Edit: It's just more 1x4s, my mistake - total cost below updated (2x @ 4$).

Not the shittiest/cheapest you can find Plywood? ~20$: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Sande-Plywood-Common-1-4-in-x-4-ft-x-8-ft-Actual-0-205-in-x-48-in-x-96-in-479023/100073744

Paint - White and Green (Lettering): Seems easy enough to get away with the cheapest stuff here, so: 8$ (2x "Sample Sizes" @ 3.94$ from Home Depot, probably would need 2x "sample sizes" for the white, but I'll stay conservative).

Chipping Matt x2 - ~20$/ea: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st_price-asc-rank?keywords=Chipping+Mat&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3AChipping+Mat&qid=1495570282&sort=price-asc-rank - Yes, I know you could buy a set of putting carpet for cheaper and cut it up, but chipping matts are significantly stronger than regular putting green surfaces, and realistically a "good" quality one should cost you at least ~25$.

Turf for the surface (Cheapest available, frankly I feel like theirs seems a little more padded than this, but for the purpose of costs...) ~21$: https://www.amazon.com/GREENSCAPES-209107-Grass-Rug-6-Feet/dp/B00LK2MIFC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1495570789&sr=8-2&keywords=Putting+Turf

1x4s for framing 4$x2 (One for each setup) Edit: : http://www.homedepot.com/p/1-in-x-4-in-x-8-ft-Premium-Kiln-Dried-Square-Edge-Whitewood-Common-Board-914681/100023465

Foam Balls (Lowest quality possible), ~12$ - didn't search too hard, but couldn't find less than a 12ct (And who wouldn't want a few spares with something like this): https://www.amazon.com/PrideSports-Practice-Balls-Count-Yellow/dp/B00466W9X0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495570456&sr=8-1&keywords=Foam+Golf+Balls

Netting (Cheapest comparable that I found), ~12$: https://www.amazon.com/Lacrosse-Netting-Fishing-Nets-Length/dp/B013W40VS6/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1495570637&sr=8-7&keywords=Netting

So all in all we're at 125$ not including any hardware (screws, nuts/bolts, brackets, etc) nor the tools that you might require to assemble the thing. You could also probably safely assume a shipping charge in the range of 20-40$ trying to mail a setup like this.

Sure, the guys making these things are buying in bulk and very likely aren't paying retail, but you would be paying retail prices. Let's also just forget the fact that all of the above doesn't account for any mistakes you might make along the way, requiring re-purchasing goods.

Frankly, I don't think this is a very good DIY project at all.

Edit: You could get away with "Two sheets of plywood" like you said (For the legs, frame, etc), but you'd want to buy much beefier stuff (~1/2" at least, 3/4" preferred): http://www.homedepot.com/p/Sande-Plywood-Common-1-2-in-x-4-ft-x-8-ft-Actual-0-472-in-x-48-in-x-96-in-454532/100017950 - There's also Softwood Ply and Particleboard available, but frankly, I wouldn't touch the stuff (ESPECIALLY the latter) if I had any intention of using these on beaches, etc.

Edit2: Just noticed these things are plastic: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1557/3333/products/products_chippo_4_800x.jpg?v=1495158893

Whelp, fuck 'em. Looks like I'll be making my 150$ counterparts instead.

So, I found (late) the Kickstarter for Chippo Golf. I was intrigued. But, when I saw they wanted $175 for the set, I knew I could build something sturdier for much less. So I did.

The total cost of the project was: $93.63 for a much better quality build. You may save more if you have the tools I didn't or scrap laying around.

The Chippo site says that each board measures 40" x 24" x 1.4".

So, I bought one 4' x '4 plywood board for the two boards. I started by ripping it in half, so you'd have two sides that were each 48" x 24". Then, I trimmed the excess off so that each board was 40" x 24". I used a Kreg jig for the entire project, so your mileage may vary in terms of cost and connecting boards.

I bought three (3) 1" x 2" x 10' common boards to use for the sides and the legs. Initially, I bought carriage bolts to use as swinging legs, but that solution didn't work well and I settled on the hinges (more later). I ended up buying an additional 1" x 2" x 8' common board later to redo the legs since I hated the bolt method.

Next, cut your sides to fit. Leave a small lip when you attach the sides so that the grass is flush with the edges once glued. Measure and mark your holes (check out the screen shot for measurements for 6" and 9" holes) and use a jig saw to cut them out.

After that, cut your turf carpet pieces to fit onto each board. I found it helpful to clamp each corner to the board, flip it over, and mark with a silver permanent marker. Then, I just used poultry shears to cut out the circles.

Next, start stapling your cargo net around the holes. Be forewarned, I think the net I bought was slightly too small. Some of the top holes are very taut and the balls can bounce out upon impact. You may use the material better than me, or simply count those shots as in (as we do). Or, buy a slightly bigger net.

After you've stapled all of your netting, use a ton of Gorilla glue and attach your carpet. Put some weight on it (books, etc.) and let it dry overnight.

Then, attach your legs. I initially tried carriage bolts, but I hated how they didn't fold up into the boards and were unbalanced. Hence, the hinge method. Attach the hinges and enjoy your game! Finish as you see fit.

I made one back in April and followed these instructions, but used 2 x 3s instead.
I made the holes with a dremel tool with the circle cutter and a cheap net I found on amazon. I used an indoor/outdoor carpet from home depot. Luckily I had most of the material in the shed left over from previous projects, but I'd estimate about $60-$75 for materials. I bought these balls from amazon. My "chipping mats" are left over indoor/outdoor carpet stapled to left over plywood.


What I think about my version: Following the corn hole instructions make it pretty sturdy, even with the 2x3's. However, they are large and somewhat awkward to carry. They aren't easy to transport in my car (mazda3 hatchback), so I am looking to make a lighter version like /u/garzalaw, but maybe have them fold in half with a hinge and lock with a bolt lock for easier transport?

It's a fun game, but challenging if you and your buddies aren't that great at golf (my buddies and myself). I practice with it in the backyard pretty frequently with real balls.

For the lazy.


I gave my brother some for Christmas and had about a dozen before my dogs chewed them up.
