Re: New 3d scanner

With Skanect I like the opportunity to scan larger parts, and the software is really easy to use. Here`s few more cheap scanners, not sure are there big difference (in accurasy) between Matteform and these two http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/568411200/rubicon-3d-scanner http://www.kickstarter.co...

Re: cubify design

Just drifting the topic a bit, I've been using Alibre 2012 PE for well over a year now. However I recently took a look at SpaceClaim in its stripware version (DesignSpark). I only spent an afternoon with it but I have to say I completely missed the point. The videos's of push/pull modeling look fan...

So you have done it at least once.
I have done it several times, perhaps time to add rubbers, those what Drew have suggested.

Re: Filament not sticking to platform

I don't "see" the distance but slide the paper under and gradually lower the head until it "grabs" so I can "feel" the distance. I originally used feeler guages when I started out building printers but the paper method is actually quicker and more convenient once you get used to it. Forget the pape...

Re: Questions From Minnesota

Hi mnuser, I agree, the Up Plus is almost without question your best printer choice for this application. Works right out of the box, has integrated software, prints beautifully, and has easily-removed support. I think you may have a misconception about what the Up software is and does, however. It...

Re: Video of PVA Dissolvable Support

PVA with PLA and HIPS with ABS, right? Why couldn't PVA be used with ABS? It dissolves in plain old water and is the most "friendly" soluble support I know of, although maybe it has some drawbacks I'm not aware of (it's extremely hygroscopic, naturally, of course). As bruce mentioned, HIPS needs li...

Re: Video of PVA Dissolvable Support

This dissolvable filament is just HIPS, and using limolene to dissolve it, is not very pleasant at all. Your hands and house will smell like oranges for days. I rather use PLA as the support material with a heated ultrasonic tank and caustic soda. Both have safety concerns. PVA with PLA and HIPS wi...

Nice.

Re: Video of PVA Dissolvable Support

The print quality of the cube itself doesn't look very good. True, hard to say why or what settings they used for this print. The excellent basic print quality of the printer has been established: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1410146982/zim-the-first-dual-head-personal-3d-printer-fully/posts...
