I strayed from the path, but now have seen the light...again :)

Recommended Posts

I started out with the first UM original many..many years ago, and fell in love with Ultimaker,

but after some experimenting, and rebuild the UM original to a larger format, I decided to build me a much larger printer ๐Ÿ˜•


I choose the FolgerTech FT5 as a basis, and enlarged the whole frame and build area,

Worked on this for a year or two, and getting ok looking prints, but I was staring to get fed up with the endless tinkering.

My wife decided my time was up, and decided to buy me an Ultimaker extended plus...!!!


I love my wife ๐Ÿ™‚


So I am back to the UM community after straying from the path, but the light is Ultimaker :LOL

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated.ย 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement thatโ€™s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of itโ€™s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
