What are your current projects?

Postby NewGuy » Wed Aug 16, 2017 8:40 pm

I've been visiting this forum for a while. I see lots of obviously skilled and knowledgeable people helping out. I'm curious, what do you people use these printers for? I understand that for some it's just a hobby to play with and print fun things, but are any of you using what you print for a larger project? If so, what is it?

The specifics are confidential, but basically prototypes of new consumer product concepts. Each prototype iteration is about 30 hours of printing and there are 5 styles, so the N2 has been running more or less non-stop (with SpoolWorks "Edge" PET filament) for the past few months, and flawlessly. My only significant modification is a PEI bed. Still using the original nozzle it came with from the Kickstarter.

A loot of tooling for mechanical testing equipment, proof of concept of steel equipment, prototyping iteration of products. Also to print toys in my spare time

I'm in between Julia and Mecha_Monster. I run a fast prototyping shop where I do new product development, and I also make optical instruments and do basic R&D for a few different industries (right now, mostly for Hollywood stuff). So if you are reading this and you have any weird ideas you'd like to try out, get in touch. :)
