Hi there

Recommended Posts

Ive been looking at 3D printers recently and have finally decided to buy one, mainly as i can justify it now for prototyping things rather than just printing random stuff :)

Ive done a bit research and was torn between the Ultimaker 2 and the CubeX/Pro, the resolution and speed were big factors for the Ultimaker and the print envelope of the CubeX was also very tempting. Ive now made my decision after watching some reviews about both and im going to be buying the Ultimaker, The print envelope wasnt enough to overlook its other flaws where as i didnt find many bad things to say about the Ultimaker. Hopefully i will have made the right decision

A bit about me, My names James and im from Chester-le-Street in Durham, im 29 and im a CNC Setter/Engineer by trade, i also do CAD Design mainly as a hobby but id like to get into it professionally if possible, I use Solidworks at the moment and will be making my models for printing with it hopefully. Mainly i will be printing prototype parts for use on my car/s which ill then machine once the prototype is a sucess, but will also be printing parts to hopefully make a little bit of money with.

What programs do people recommend i get or will solidworks suffice?

Thanks

James

    • 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. 
      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 that’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 it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
