A glimpse inside Shapeways...

Recommended Posts

Posted · A glimpse inside Shapeways...

Not the same technologies we use, but hopefully interesting to the community... a glimpse inside Shapeways' facility. Interesting to see just how densely they pack their print beds... I think maybe Cura needs to step up it's game a bit on that one.... ;-)

Really cool to see!

I guess that EOS are making a lot of money these days ;) A lot of EOS P machines in the video.

Is there anyone in here with experience of the Eosint M2XX machines by chance?

The M series for sintering metal with laser, that is.

We have bought a 14 year old Eosint M250 eXtended second hand to our Makerspace but it seems to be a complex beast to operate and even get started...

That was super interesting. It's fascinating that they use more less standard household equipment for dyeing nylon parts.

It looks like they're using NetFabb... perhaps with some proprietary plugin for the layout work.

Cheers,

Troy.
