These were fun to play with at Nationals. I am looking forward to the next generation with the new 3D printer.

I am currently trying to get the new machine up. It arived with a bad extruder motor. I should get the replacement today.
 I will concentrate on better prints leading to my eventual 4" top.  ;D
I am also working on a tippy top for fun.

So the new machine is up and running and this is the maiden voyage. So far I am impressed with this. Not much vibe at all right off the printer.



The shoulder printed really nicely.

Very nice! I wish I could wake up in the morning and just say: "I think I'll print a top today"

How long does it take to print one? At what resolution are you printing?
Would they still look stringy if you sand them?

The print takes about 4 hours on .25mm layer thickness. To get a better finished look l was thinking about an acetone bath. The white one actually doesn't bother me like the others.

excellent result !!

it's a dream to take a nap while the top is taking form  :D :D
thanks for showing ..
how about the CO2 footprint of these machines ?

from a semantic viewpoint the word "print" has now many different meanings

I am not sure how big the footprint is on this. I would expect small since they are basically hot glue guns with motors. Production of the materials is where I could see an issue but I am just guessing.

They have a bunch of options for materials. I have been impressed with the strength of ABS. No wonder it's used for Lego bricks.

I decided to make a tippy top for fun. It was more difficult than I thought, this is rev6.
