This book will not teach you how to use the 3D Printer that you just bought but will give you a comprehensive overview of the technology if you are considering entering this field. It may also save you from making any unwise investments based upon the projects you are considering.

Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

Haha, I don't think so. I currently have two filaments ... black & black.

Sweet, have heard good things about the various versions of this printer. Would probably be the one I'd get if I'm ever in the position to :laugh2:

I will be working on a 1/32 scale motor pod. I have two filaments to try, One is Taulman Bridge Nylon and the other is PolyMide CoPA which is based on a copolymer of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6. The motor pod will fit into a brass and carbon fiber chassis or at least that's the plan. It's an "upgrade" for the Slot.it Group C Porsche.

Instructions are very detailed with every single step perfectly described and many pictures. 

 

The parts come bagged with different bags for every sub-assembly. Each bag has labels showing pictures and quantities of the parts in it.

 

 If you assume nothing and follow the guide to the letter there is no chance to get it wrong. I will take at least 10-12 hours of work to put it together. The guide is also available online with high resolution pictures which are needed sometimes.

Hi Dennis,

 

Looking forward to seeing the printed motor pod in the chassis!

 

Thanks Dennis!

 

 

 

Hi Guillermo!

 

That looks to be a robust printer - very nice!

 

Looking forward to a photo when it is ready to "play" - if you please.

 

Thank you.

 

Ernie

When I built my first one I found the online instructions were more up-to-date and included helpful comments that helped assembly.

I will look forward to it.  The pod in the photo is from Devis Design (no longer in production.)  Everything fits well and it seems sturdy but, with motor and gearing installed and running, moderate pressure on the pod yields a slight change in the pitch of the sound suggesting that it is not as rigid as it appears to be.

Here is the assembled printer. Now the fun begins starting with the testing and calibration tonight.  :)

The material and design of the pod is critical, especially if you want to use a similiar design in 1/24 scale.

I will be using a formulation of nylon.
