Someone make this thing
Makes me want a 3d printer. No clue what I’d do with such a thing. Something something mount a laser on it something something.
Ah, I gave in and purchased a Photon (not the S). I love it. It took forever for me to figure out how to make designs stick to the bed, but once I did…magic.
Get a 3D printer and make the thing! That would be awesome! (I want to make the thing…need to find some time tho).
Hmm you got a link?
How’d you pick that model over the others?
Solar tracker ,camera mount, cup holder for your open water boat, mount a line laser and have an artificial horizon…
The other evans comes through again.
I was seeing lots of solar tracker suggestions on the video’s comments and I was thinking Jeez, solar trackers are pretty easy and don’t need to be so complex. But if the solar cell was on a mobile platform then it makes sense.
Yes well you’re talking to people with 3d printers and laser cutters. Nothing has to be that complex but it’s kinda cool
Sorry for the wait on the reply. It’s Finals Week and grading consumes most of my time. I’d rather be here, and I’d rather be lasering.
I picked the Photon on the advice of @karaelena – lots of experience with machines and software of all sorts, oracle who knows all in this realm.
There is a lot of community support for this machine and so much easier than the SparkMaker (which I gave up on and gave to a friend after my simple frustrations).
Hmm I wonder how the photon compares to the Mars. To the google!
Ok google yielded a review on all3dp.com that says that they are almost indentical. I hear elegoo is about to release a newer version, so I’ll probably wait for that. Cool to learn about all this though.
I’d be interested in what you decide to use. In the meantime, here is a link to helpful resin settings for the Photon.
Definitely a bat signal.
Nice share. I have two 3D printers just sitting there. I don’t have mental space to keep them occupied for the time being. this would be a good project. However, I will show restraint. I once spent a kg of filament on a robotic arm. Bit off a more than I could chew at that time. Hadn’t understood tolerances and was never able to assemble it. Learned a lot about testing fits first before committing.
I 3D print more than I laser. As a perfect example of what you can do we needed a MRI safe 1 1/8” wrench for an oxygen tank. I couldn’t find a good one online. Anyway I quickly obtained a photo of one from a catalog and scaled it in fusion 360. Exported the dxf of the outline and cut it in thick clear acrylic. It snapped with little force. Then we had some 3/8” clear which cut just fine with a slight slow down from the thick proofgrade settings. Anyway then I extruded it’s and added some fillets etc. printed it on the form 3 in tough resin. Worked like a charm
Yes. I like the 3D printers. The practical prints just make me happy. That’s beautiful! Reminds me that I need to print a custom collet nut box end wrench for my CNC router.
Your medical projects are always great. As simple as a wrench is it’s very cool that you’re making things that help people.
