No, I'm using the "extended". They improved the packaging and otherwise it's the same as my Ultimaker II just with 100mm more Z volume to work with.
2.85mm(3mm) is more accurate as +-0.1 (or +-0.05)mm on 2.85 are way less of a cross-section -change then on 1.75mm filament. On the other hand the minimum extrusion rate is much higher. This limits extremely thin (<20 micron) layers.
Think you can design 3D-printed deep space buildings that will sustain human life? Think your design can win out over zillions of entries? You've got until July 15 to submit your registration package to America Makes and NASA for the 3D Printed Habitat Challenge.
Most of the common SLA printers, use similar basic principles during the actual print process: UV light induces the defined polymerization process on photoactive resins, either emitted from laser diodes or projectos (dlp). Between the actual vat, that contains the resin, and the model, deposition layers of transparent silicone is commonly used to allow a
+Torleif Ceder yeah, that's what I was thinking too, but I didn't want to jump to the obvious solution.
No, just kidding - I am counting myself smart just to get your concept, though not familiar with the specific terms. Please don't tell me you made it all up, because if you did, you should be a sci-fi writer!
We want to share the news that Eastman Chemical Co. has selected taulman3D to introduce their "Amphora" line of materials in the US! The Amphora (AM1800) has been available in the EU for over a year and is well known for it's excellent printing features and strength. We have been busy getting this great material ready and it's now available under our internal name "n-vent". Most of you know it's been a fast paced 6mo's for taulman3D with the release of Alloy 910, Nylon 680, In-PLA and now n-vent. We have updated the site with additional info as well as adding some new "UN-released" materials. We follow this group daily and continue to be pleased to see the technical professionalism and constant support to those just learning about 3DP and those that have insight, but want excellent technical opinions. We want to say thanks to all of those who donate their time and effort to help push this great technology to it's limits!
