Alright it’s not actually made yet, but cutting acrylic is hardly new to any of us. So I recently got a form3 SLA printer as most folks noted in my post earlier. Anyway one challenge I had on my prior mSLA printer was mixing the resin. It is super important that the resins get well mixed but shaking can get bubbles into the resin. So This calls for some sort of continuous mixing apparatus. So luckily as a physician I am in labs all the time, and the orbital shaker table is a pretty standard thing. It is also generally a pretty expensive thing (like $500 for a reasonable sized one). Well I figured I would build one, out of thick proofgrade acrylic. So off to OnShape and I CAD’ed it up:
I’ll post some pics when it’s done.
