[3DPrintingIndustry] Billed as the first truly high-resolution, low-cost 3D printer for design... - Page 4

OCN could throw a fundraiser for one of these and basically we could have Admin house it and print stuff out once we mail him the materials needed etc...

Good idea in my head at least.

I wish I had a good grasp on what these micron layer and feature size specs actually translate to in real life objects that someone would print. 100 microns is what, about the size of a hair? So I can make a layers thin as a hair, but if I wanted to have a shape in my hair-thin layer it would have to be at least 300 microns? Like an x-y accuracy vs a z accuracy?

I need to think of reasons why I would need something so small. Modeling the grain of the wood in the deck of a thimble sized ship?

I can't justify buying one right now, but I if I had one, I imagine it would suck me into so many other hobbies. All kinds of modeling and DIY stuff.

Hmm...I think I would rather have that one then the one in the OP...never seen that. Though $48 for 1kg of the plastic doesn't sound too fun (though I really wonder what would happen if I shoved weed whacker string into it). Plus I am really curious about the "resin" that the other printer will be using. As in how much and how strong it is. The race car that was recently in the news for having a 3D printed body was also a "resin" of some type I believe. So this might make a stronger product than ABS plastic.

I am so temped to get one of these...I am just worried that I would end up dropping a $1000 a month in supplies for it since I would be playing with my new toy non-stop.

Cheapest ever, not even close, the cheapest is around $500, I believe there was an article about it on here a while back. However I do believe this is the cheapest 3-D printer that uses Stereolithography. As a user of an at home 3-D printer (or prosumer according to the article) this is a pretty big step at a amazing price. My current printer can achieve layer resolution of 0.1mm (any more has quite a bit of tuning and trial and error). Can't wait to see others come into the market.

That was the solid doodle or something like that...I don't know if that one counts. Heh, it was pretty crappy and I don't think that it is released yet.

This got me googling and I found this article:
http://www.makerbot.com/blog/2012/02/24/a-matter-of-scales-how-much-can-you-print-with-a-single-1kg-spool

To summarize:
Quote:
•A single spool of plastic produces 392 chess pieces.
•392 chess pieces makes a little over 12 complete monochromatic chess sets.
•The MakerBot Replicator ships with two spools — 1kg of Natural ABS and 1kg of Black ABS.
•MakerBot Operators can print over 24 complete black and white chess sets with the plastic they receive with a new Replicator!

I just wish I could see how big the chess pieces are, the pictures don't load since I'm at work. I'll be sad if they are those tiny travel chess set pieces.

^ they look to be about the standard size of everyday plastic Chess Pieces. Not as long as your Pinky finger basically.

http://printrbot.com/ these are what I was thinking of.

Also a 1kg spool does indeed print quite a bit. You have to figure everything that is printed isn't a solid fill, usually its only 25% or less, so that alone saves quite a bit of plastic per piece. It still ends up being an expensive hobby though.

Yup, the chess pieces were at 20% fill.

Although all that research I was doing about PLA and infill doesn't apply to the printer in the OP because its a stereolithography printer. Now I need to figure out the cost of resin per liter and how much effective volume of output that gets me. I imagine the resin is going to be more expensive, but I really have no reason to assume that oher than the fact that it sounds fanicer than melting plastic.

God damn it, I just got one. I was almost thinking of the replicator 2 from makerbot... but this is the Sl tech vs extrusion. I missed out on the low price but at least got it before the full retail price, thanks OCN
