Looking forward to seeing that one work!

SLA is nice and so, but the resin cost? LOL. No way.

 

Prototype 2 of the TITAN did 1.8 print about 1.5 year ago. And then the Z stage jammed and it never worked again.

Only just picked it up after FabCon due to lots of people wanted to see it finished.

This photo is of Prototype 3, which is 22x22x22 cm instead of the older 20x20x20cm prototype. But I'm using better components now. And I already updated the drawings to 20x20x22 for prototype 4.

The prototype 3 has 30% of the external volume of the Makerbot-Mini, but 25% more print volume.

The TITAN is by NO means any commercial effort. It's a hobby project. I have no plans to sell it, or to make a kit out of it.

As for SLA. I'm not that scared of the resin costs, more scared of the toxicity of the resins. Look up pro SLA printers and you'll see gloves. Always.

    I'd happily put up with some warped feet in exchange for clean overhangs and 37 micron detail.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
