Im not going to disclose any information about this project. Its been in the works for the past year, We are nearing completion of the 4th prototype, code and functionality is all there. Glass, 3d printed parts are used in its construction.
I picked up a broken 24" plotter, broke it down to the essentials, using the gantry, arduino, stepper motor, various parts from amazon, 2 tripods and some code I found to make some really awesome Time Lapse videos.
I have been gathering materials to build a forge to melt and cast aluminum for the objects I print with my 3d printer. Still in alpha stage.
Recently purchased this, I have not yet had a chance to play with it yet. I have major plans for this machine. After I get the feel for it down the next step will be an SLS style 3d printing cartridge that i can drop in and print with metal.
Bought a Xbox Kinect, use a variety of software to get my scans to be decent enough to print. Still working on that one. Some of my scans turned out pretty awesome. Look just like the subject.
I had no idea what I was doing when I first started building my 3D printer. I stayed with it for months, trying to get it to work, then finally printing and trying to get things to print to perfection ever since.
