About to receive my first 3D printer

Started by Unknown September 12, 2021
310 x 310 x 450 mm volume.

  I was thinking about doing an unboxing video.

  Dual independent head.

  Getting a laser too.

Will it have a crystal clear enclosure for viewing? John Doe stuck a cloudy Rubbermaid storage tub over his.

The laser? It is UV shrouded at the head, so supposedly the burn process can be watched naked eye. Won't see this kid doing that. I'll be wearing goggles.

He probably runs it off of rubber band motors too. Good thing they got that 'pick up where you left off' recovery stuff in the software. It can onlyt do so much tho.

Is the laser an add-on for the printer? I was asking about the printer... unboxing video, yeah, halloween theme.

No. I got a 3-D printer. It takes up about a square yard. I ALSO got a laser burner with an even bigger "playfield". But you won't see me plopping any plastic tubs over it.

Oh My God, This thing is so cool! It is sitting their spewing away in a very precise manner, bright green print job... fluorescent I think. It shakes the whole table and this is also where my laptop is. Cool constant WIP signal. :-) It is only about 20% done with the test print I set it off doing after I finished building it and calibrating the bed. It's gonna be a minute or two. I cannot believe the friggin' price of filament. 15 to like 50 bucks a kilo. The carbon fiber stuff sounds cool though. Strong prototypes.

Man, you guys would not believe how cool this thing is. I think I might print one of those coffee table tourbillion clocks.

It is pretty cool. Have to clean up parts like gears and such with my needle files. Filament is expensive. I'll be waiting for clients to use it mcuh. No play for now. After I get a business going, I will eventually get a metal 3D printer and sintering oven. <https://www.amazon.com/dp/B091XXVNR3> Here is the laser: <https://www.amazon.com/dp/B097QMTWW4>

Thanks, looks ok! ATM I have no justifiable use for one, but always on the lookout for reasonable price/performance ratio gear (this one seems to qualify) -- Cheers, Chris.
