  • 3D printer Demo

    There was a fellow at NAMES demonstrating this 3D printer:

    https://www.cetus3d.com/store/index....&product_id=53

    Did anyone happen too get his contract information??

    Thanks

    And yes I have ordered one.

    Looks like a nice printer. I really like the idea of linear rails, far better than the round rods and linear bearings that are the norm.

      Linear rails do look like a nice way forward

        Linear rail designs have been around for ages in 3D printers, Kossel comes to mind as an example. But the structure of that machine looks very nicely designed and clean, so it seems that I have a 3D printer to build :P

            Wish I could help, but I didn't visit that booth. Couldn't really get out of our booth all day Saturday and had too many people to see on Sunday to get to everything.

            Now I'm wishing I had stopped in. I really like that design.

              Really is a nice design, a bit small, but a nice design.

                Itried to register with them and am finding it difficult to get ahold of anybody.
                I'm looking for a project while recovering from hip surgery.
                Why advertise if they're not for sale.

                  Prediction;
                  The $300.00 pricepoint is a teaser.
                  When they deign to get back to you the price is going to be higher.

                      When I registered, is was the next bay before I got the conformation e-mail. They have charged my credit card.

                      Web page says shipment 3 days after payment confirmed. My card was charged on Thursday, so hopefully it will ship Monday.

                      I'll keep you informed.

                        Why would it be? The thing costs absolutely nothing in parts.

                          I've found that the most critical thing in getting a decent print is the slicer software, and correct settings. The settings change from one PLA filament to the next, and the physical structure of your part will dictate vast changes in settings to get a perfect print. There's many variables at play, nothing hard to learn. To get consistent prints, you need a good hot end, extruder, and good mechanical setup, just as if it was a CNC mill.
                          So I will suggest you save an additional 150$ to purchase Simplify3d

                            What software are people using for designing their models? I downloaded the Cetus3D software and can't figure out how to subtract a shape from another shape.
