    With 3D printers coming down in price, it won't be long until their presence in households could become the norm.  I really appreciate what you are doing, as it shows the art of the possible. I would opine that t...  more

    Wow Dan. 
     
    I had not imagined where you were taking this. All 3d printed complete with internal framing. Too cool. Your printer will need a re build after this 
    Yeah, Devon, I did start out planning to print it, but it ...  more

    Finishing some more projects.
    Have the basic box of the battery box and support beams built.  On the prototype this box is removable, so it has lifting eyes attached to it.  Those are on the 3d printer right now, as are the bits that will disguise the pivot and wires on each...  more
    Dexter-Turbine Windmill Project
    Replaced the power supply, and the laser's cutting. Some. Now it looks like I've been negligent on replacing the mirrors, so I need to do that this Saturday hopefully.
     
    While I'm at it, I'm trying to get my cheapo kit 3D printer working. I was hopin...  more
    Damn it I'm switching
    Devon,
    Come look at 7/8's.  It's much bigger and easier to see when you work on it.  
    Except for one club member who has a couple pieces, I'm all alone.
    And this member is starting to produce 7/8's products with a new resin 3D printer. Including...  more
    Affordable SLA Printing
    With 3d printing, one process is great for one preferred outcome, another for another. 
     
    FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) is great for larger parts requiring lower fidelity and cost, and this is what most home-use 3d printers are. I have one, an...  more
    Prusa Offers a printer For The Masses!
    Jim, I will echo what Eric and Joe said about Prusa 3D printers. I have the Prusa MK2.5S and love it. I’ve had it for about 3 years and have had no issues. I bought the kit and built the printer myself and it was quite easy to put together. As Joe m...  more
