  • got dimensions?

    well, I decided that since I paid my truck off, it was time to acquire a new tool as a present, I think this little... er... big guy should come in handy!

    https://folgertech.com/collections/3...3d-printer-kit

    I had wanted a 3d printer for years, but never found one that met my desires that wasn't ridiculously expensive. the build area on this thing is huge! 28"x13"x15" I figure that's big enough to prototype an intake manifold if I wanted (I do...) Lead time on the machine is supposed to be 3 weeks, I'm hoping it's alot faster than that, but I'll just have to wait and see.
    Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

    I get bummed out every time I type "titties" in the search bar and nothing pops up....

    Built not bought, because bolt-ons don't...

    Nice! I bought a 3D printer a couple of your ago now, but haven't used it in probably a year. Mine only has about a 10"x10"x10" printing area, so I could never do a whole manifold, but other items have crossed my mind. Make sure to post pics once you get it going!

      I thought I posted this in "other" not intros... I'll post lots of pictures. the big plan is to use it to make molds for metal castings.

        6x6x7 is my build area and I haven't used it much after the first couple months. Mostly because its a pile of garbage:/ Consistency is non existent, so I lost interest in learning how to design parts.

          well, I'm hoping I don't run into the same problems, if I do, I'll just have to figure out a way to fix those too. I have a few ideas for ways to improve rigidity if it becomes necessary.

            Rigidity isn't the issue I have. Its the Z offset, and either the belt system itself, firmware, sensor feedback touching off the corners, or...its just a pile of garbage. Ill get it dialed in, and 3 prints later its eating the bed on the first layer.
