is possible to print that?

Hi. I found this unit ony today on some polish website… It seems to be a perfect tool…

Just a quick question. Is it possible to print piece like this on pix (which I will try to attach).

Next questions are dependent of answer:)

Thx Pawel

Sure, this is easy model.

Ok. Next one:) how long it takes to get it to Poland or France…

And more important- how much of energy it consumes? I couldn’t find this info.

Thx

Delivery time for orders is 2-8 weeks.

Ok. 190 is more less what I expected.

Probably last question: is yours soft enough to draw a project or some external CAD soft is needed?

As I’m planing to print so.e simple pieces instead of looking for in on a 2nd hand market, I would like to know how expensive in the end is using this printer. Extra software can rise it up…

Thx

Read this thread, many free 3d programs are really good.

I suggest a quick search on zortrax.com and on this forum before asking questions. You might already get the answers in there. :wink:

As I said I found it only today and my only knowledge about 3D printers is based on The Big Bang theory :slight_smile:

I used to search for knowledge from the primary source… As soon as I will get a base… But thx a lot. I believe it can be very well spent money, now is time to learn a bit about plastic…

It is very well spent money. We can assure you it is the best printer on the market, for this price level. You can buy with your eyes closed.

And I’m a big fan of the Big Bang Theory too… :wink: Though the figures they printed in the series are not done with FDM machine. They have been done with 3Dsystems Projet 660. :wink:

Ok. Real question now. As we all know is a huge difference between tool and toy. Following the YT. I sow many of the material need to be removed by hand. I understand it is technology issue.

The question is- is it possible to use this printer to produce a … For example complicated electronic plugs and sockets? Or it’s made to do the model only? I perfectly understand I can print almost everything, but can I easily print for example 100 pieces and it will be just print and use?

I do understand it is best unit and the market… Unfortunately often best is not good enough… Also for a small person like me it is truly massive money :slight_smile:

I do know- my questions are pain :slight_smile: but during the counting we all want to be sure that 2+2 Will be no more then 4 :slight_smile:

Thx Pawel

Best answer I could give is maybe. It will greatly depend on the plug and socket design, and some clean up will still be needed, at the very least the raft removal.

Keep in mind that FDM whilst it produces strong parts, they are not as strong as injection moulded parts. So even if the plugs work, they may not survive repeated use.

You could also post your designs for someone to print and test for you.

Just print something nice for your wife then you can end up better than Howard Wolowitz :wink:

3D printed ‘mass production’ is complicated but we printing some parts for our printer, also I know one customer which using Zortrax for mass printing enclosures for his arduino project, of course 3D printing is more for prototyping and is limited by something as minimal feature size, minimal wall thickness etc. but if part is designed for 3D printing then it is really good to produce 10-100 pieces using 3D printer.

Best Regards

Yes Howard didn’t have a luck :wink: Maybe wrong printer :smiley:

During discussion i’m getting more and more …

This piece witch is on my mind is for once connection, not for often unplugging.

Lets maybe do it clear. I’m in the process of projecting electronic “comfort” unit for a car. I need to be able to connect it with the car installation. Once. It will not be my problem if someone decide to play with it ones per week. It will be P&P unit. Unfortunately is very hard to find this plugs on the market, even 2nd hand.

It will not be a massive production.I will be so lucky if will sell 100 of it. It is not, and never will be my primer work. Just beautifully baby delivered by my mind once.

This unit is so cool and i would be a shame to not put it on the market. That all.

Any way - to the point.

It would be so grate to made a custom box but the enclosures are not a problem in the end.

Problem is a plug and socket.

I have read the manual of the printer several times and i’m still not sure.

The minimal wall thickenss is 0.4mm but optimal 0.8mm…

Is it possible to print a wall with thickness 0.5mm and 10mm hight?? Several walls like that between bigger ones.

I do realize how cool it would be to have 3D printer :wink: How many of small problems with toys it solve. :slight_smile: I know also that it can be never paid back in my situation. Just it would be to bad to have it and still locking for the plugs on the market.

I’m sure u guys can understood that 10k PLN is to much for a furniture. That way i want to be sure (as much as possible) it will be usable for me.

Thx a lot Pawel

“Is it possible to print a wall with thickness 0.5mm and 10mm high”

I have been testing with printing a bussiness-card standing upright (50 mm high, 90 mm wide, 0.7 mm thick) That was no problem (except for getting the small letters readable, still working on that :).

Zortrax made the right choice in moving the build platform up and down only, not move it sideways as some printers do. Otherwise tricks like this would fail imo.

I thought I bought a prototyping machine with the M200, but the quality is that good that production in small batches is possible. Just this morning I delivered 46 small pieces to a customer. They were satisfied.

When I bought my first printer I really did not know what I would do with it; I just wanted to get to know the technology. Since then I have bought two more (and have two more after that on order) and they seldom go unused for more than a day or two. I am always finding new things to print for my work, for my shop, and just for fun. When you have a printer, you no longer think “Where can I buy this kind of part?”; instead you think “oh, I will just make it” :slight_smile:

I think that complete :wink:

Im starting to collect the money. :smiley:

How is with the extra plate? Is it already exist as a spare part?

thx for all!! To bad it was unavailable 15 years ago :wink: I had more of beautiful babes :D:D unfortunately they are found by the big ones already :wink: or :confused: :D:D
