    Are there any new images of prints?

    Hi,

    I'm mainly interested in seeing what sort of prints you're getting from the T-Rex 24s if you have them up, as well as anything both large and small from said printer.

    And to be honest, I'd...

    I'm not planning to take it that high for now, but you might want to set the max closer to 275 or so. Enough to run something that requires more heat (new stuff all the time now, I hear) when it...
  3. You should be able to set the z resolution higher...

    You should be able to set the z resolution higher than normal to give it a rougher look. I do know art and artists.

    I'll admit that most people try to get the print better than their older prints,...

    Both Blender and Modo can do all of that with much less training than Solidworks for a fraction do the cost. That's why I don't list 3dMax or Maya, because they cost much more than the combination of...

    I ordered one off of Kickstarter because it has a quad head. It will make it nice for printing action figures.

    Right now I'm still exploring. I've seen several places with prices of $4-5 per pound or less.

    It doesn't look that intricate. Shouldn't any printer with an envelope height greater than 1 ft. work?
  8. What is the temperature range of the extruders?

    Hi,

    I know the Monstr can print PLA through Nylon. I'm just wondering about the temperature settings min/max of the extruders?

    Thanks much!

    The stepper motors in most of the other printers around are also DC motors.

    To control a DC motor to the precision you need, you need encoders. Most CNC milling machines I've seen use both...

    Look on the internet about lost wax molding.

    i would, once I've gotten my object perfected, use a water-soluble filament that can be flushed out. Or you could use PLA and really heat the mold up...

    What is a good filament extruder?

    Hi,

    I'm thinking about getting a filament extruder in order to make my own filament. I've seen a couple of them:

    The ExtrusionBot: advantage comes with its own spooling device
    The Filastruder:...

    Hi,

    I am waiting for my printer, but it won't arrive for a while. I'm looking to do a few things with my printer.

    1. I want to create marble runs, for artistic expression.
    2. There are some...

    Ben,

    One of the major problems, as I see it, is that doing this at the printer requires doing it once per head (unless I'm missing something). For many of my projects I will be needing all 4...

    I like that. I look forward to seeing what you'll stock. Especially the new stuff that's starting to hit the markets now look interesting, so the stuff I haven't heard of is probably more so. And...

    I do not intend to work in PLA at all unless necessary. My first goals are ABS and nylon.

    I went for this option. Mainly because I can't afford a 3DMonstr T-Rex-Gold(4) right now. I have money coming in later this year, but not right now, unfortunately.
