Been itching to try this out for awhile now, and finally broke down and ordered one. The real fun will be in assembling it piece by piece and hopefully I can get my grandson involved. We'll see.

Wow!!!! Modern technology is getting more sophisticated. Or, should I say complicated? :3531a34faafcd3d5ab8749a94f57319e:

Hope you the best. I am sure that it will help your business.M3-1_03

I noticed that the front of the Instruction Manual is written in "Simplified Chinese." That means that it was made in Mainland or Communist China and not Taiwan.

Also, I noticed that it makes chess pieces. Any chess players out there in OLB land????

Yes, I b uy a lot of CNC parts directly from the "PRC". They make good stuff and most are super good to deal with.

That looks awesome. Let us know how it work outs for you after you played with it.

Thanks, It should be fun, no kidding about that.

 I work with CNC for a living and have already designed and built a CNC hotwire machine for use in my business.  I use a 3 axis CNC router to machine my plastic and metal parts but Is relatively limited as to what it can do. This 3D printer has round linear rails and bearing blocks for axis guides. It also has both lead screw and timing belt power transmission driven by stepper motors, all of which I'm familiar with. The electronics are pretty straightforward as well. But what I'm not familiar with is the heated material depositing mechanism on this type device. I will be able to study the material depositing thingy on this one and design a larger one. I just thought it would be neat if I got my grandson interested in robotics too. If he doesn't, no sweat.

You have lost me here.

I know the biggest issue with these is the cost of resin, but as I assume you will be using it as part of your business, you will be able to recover that.

The early ones gave a fairly rough finish, but noe they are pretty amazing.

Have fun.

Thanks Dave. Yes, the cheapest I found for a 1 kg spool was $12.34 for some green. I also bought a spool of 1 kg blue but the cheapest I found for that was $14.99, So I can see how it can get pricey pretty quick.
