    Great work, especially on the metals and stones.
    You can improve on skin, fabric and variations of matte vs. glossy finishes.

    I recommend the Lulzbot TAZ 4 if you can still obtain one or a later TAZ model - they have great quality, build volume large enough for helmets, and multiple head support.

    Otherwise I recommend building conical support towers touching the thumb, hand and arm.

    I am looking at the Velleman K8200 - it brings lesser quality prints but is highly modifiable into a CNC, paste extruder, dual extruder etc.

    Hi,

    I recommend the Wanhao duplicator or Ultimaker Original. Lulzbot printers are good too.

    Hi,
    I am looking for a 3D printer to replace my Ultimaker Original for at least one year.
    It has to be compatible with 2.85mm filament.
    Budget around $500. It will be another Ultimaker Original,...

    There are sprayable applications for this as well such as Printafix - much better and safer. I reapply every 2 to 5 times depending on the type of print.

    I know a good option for just over 1k: the XYZprinting Nobel SLA printer.
    Slow printing, but far superior detail over FDM printers especially for action figures.

    If you opt for plastic extrusion,...

    In Solidworks and Rhino, and other surface modellers for that matter, you create surfaces with which you can boolean split a solid. You construct a surface just like any other surface and can use as...

    I use MEK - methyl ethyl ketone - you will need ventilation as well but it is better than chloroform.

    All in all, this looks like a good multipurpose machine.
    It's not the best 3D printer, CNC mill or laser cutter, but the best affordable combination of those, and quality is not bad.

    For all Marvel fans and cosplayers, I have created a fully 3D printable Captain America shield that is 40cm in diameter and can be printed on any printbed of 15x15cm.

    If you use PLA, natural PLA will have the least additives but still it may be considered non-foodsafe. I recommend going strictly with filament that is officially approved as foodsafe such as...

    These are great.
    My advice to the company is to keep in mind that even though some PLA filaments are graded foodsafe, other measures have to be taken:

    The He 3D printers are good value and the $99 3D scanner option is fantastic - although I would stick to a trusted brand and from what I have seen the Wanhao i3 is the prime choice.
    On that note,...

    I am not using hairspray any longer - printafix works better anyway and the bottles are more manageable.

    Another safety concern is the use of MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) as a solvent for PLA. People...
