first project is to print some type of army man or toy car shaped thing or something to keep these kids' interest peaked. And then I will probably start making some custom parts for either cars I work on at work and/or my 1/10 scale nitro r/c cars. But the main goal of this is to teach a skill to my children that will help them when they enter the workforce.

Yep, that's it. Blame the kids. I'm getting a drone just so I can teach the grandkids how to fly a GoPro. It's NOT REALLY for me at all......honey. It's for the kids. Honest.

Wiz, I've got to call BS.:laughing:

That's a great thing to do - I get to play with this one at work. We use it to print prototype new product designs and fixtures.

That's a little nicer than what I am working with, lol. how big of an item can you make with that? my tiny thing limits me to a 200mm cube max building size.

We can build within a 14X10X10 inch cube, but we really got it for the accuracy. We can do +/-0.0015"/inch with that unit.

This one is supposed to do .1mm or 0.0039" resolution. What software do you use to make item with and to slice item before printing?

didn't realize the amount of sides I had on this. I just made a craps-agon :rolling:..



That honeycomb structure it was making is strong as all get out, though
