As luck would have it i am working next door at the sensor and instrumentation show. stand 39 if you want to say hi.
As 3d printing is one of my many passions i thought i would go take a look around the show and who did i bump in to. the man himself Joshep Prusa had to shake his hand for developing such nice machines.
I also managed to have a chat with him about my machine issues. so might be able to fix that on my return to London. I have already ordered the parts so hoping to fix this at the weekend. whilst i was there i also managed to grab a textured build plate for the mk3 printer.
looked a Crealitys latest printer with a swappable head for cnc, laser and 3d printing. and the rest of the range.
Ultimaker had its new range of printers and wall of filament on the show but the price bracket is out of my league till someone sponsors me.
form labs stand hade the new model SLA printer again big bucks to buy so not on my shopping list.
Chatted with some nice chaps @kora3D who have some great safety enclosures for 3d printers with fire detection and fire suppression also filtered to keep the nasties out of the atmosphere. they gave me a free sample of there bed glue called formula 3D. wil let you know what its like once i get my printers up and running.
i then wandered over to makerbot and saw there newly launched method x printer with support for there preloaded filament reels and also 3rd party support filament, with removable bed and build size of 190×190
also spotted the duet 3d six spool multi-material printer on a quick wander through the hall.
as i was leaving hall 3 to grab a coffee i spatted the xyz printing colour printer looks interesting will try swinging back later to find out some more information
I had some time this afternoon to pop back over to the show and talk to some managed to get some free esun filaments to test, some cool carbon fibre filament from Filamentum. will take for a test drive when i have a hardened nozzle,
Laser lines full-colour resin printer was awsome no mess but comes at a price not for the hobbyist.
After a 4 hour drive back to the house i have decided to give resin printing another go.
saw a video 3DPrintFarm about hollowing out a print and set up of the print. so have decided to copy it and see if it works for me. As dident manage to get much time on holiday do some research.
i also test cut the base and roof of the curing station must have been drugged as hight of light support is way off so going to remeasure. ajust accordingly lol.
Time for some Rest and relax as been a long few days. Will finish curing box on Saturday night as long as son sleeps. will start looking and my 3d printers.
