I must agree, the k8200 does rule! (especially, as people develop the CNC attachment, and the lazercutter head with quick-change connections, it is a lazer etching, CNC’ing, 3D printing swiss army knife of awesome).
I wonder a few questions;
what finish can people achieve with: a conic segment, a 127-cell, a tetrahedron? (do pointy objects print pointy, do spherical or curved shapes print curvy etc). I find the final point on the tetrahedron does not print properly.
how long does it take people to print a square plate of the following dimensions:
187mm W x 187mm L x 3-5mm D?
using 0.3mm layerheight, low acceleration, low infill speed, and at 30%infill, solid fill every 4 layers?
It is estimated, with a simple tri mesh, 6 faces, 8 verts;
to take my rig between 1hr:37mins:43sec and 2hours:45mins:13secs per plate,
using slic3r v1.1.7 stable,
baring any unforeseen hiccup. This is without the nekker/escher/geiger details…
any perspective, or hints to reduce that print time will be appreciated at the collective.
If you can suggest some ways to print inside of 45mins per plate… you may just make the object printable hehehe.
I look forward to seeing the 3D ceramic printer filaments,
PCB board pre-wired filaments,
and the newer 6-axis Printer and '3D sand vacuform printers" develop.
Sure, lazer cutter, lazer scintilated resin ala “Frosted Ultra Detailed” and the like are cool, and have that finish everyone quests,
but the k8200 have some charms to it, and is more affordable; great for experimenting.
