New hobby!

Postby usmcruz » Tue Nov 25, 2014 1:10 pm

So im dropping the bones on a 3D printer. Looking at this model https://www.lulzbot.com/products/lulzbo ... 3d-printer, and another one that got really good reviews. The uses for this are amazing, and i dont feel bad dropping the cash,call it an early christmas the wife doesnt know about, and when she finds out im sleeping on the couch present. :P just think about the tons uses in homebrewing you can apply it too. What do you guys think, and do any of you have one that can give me some tips.

Im also looking into the metal 3d printers as well, cant decide. Maybe i can find one that does plastic and metal. Still new to all this and trying to soak it in.

We have several different ones. Metal, metal and rubber, plastics, composites. LLUMC just purchased two, one for the prosthetics department to create real-time limbs and one for the school of dentistry to create real-time dental appliances. But then these are $200k machines, so probably much more massive than what you are looking at. I know that we are going to release a pair of desktop models in the near future, but I don't have the specs on them yet.

The technology is really incredible. There is even one manufacturer that has one that will print using a food based substrate!

Interesting. I have a buddy who runs a dental lab and he said he suspects the 3D printers will eventually put most small labs out of business. Of course, he said he was ready to retire and work on his golf game so it did not worry him too much.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

Unfortunately, I do see this killing off a lot of small labs. But from the customer side of it, not waiting 10 days for a permanent crown is much better. On the prosthetic side, it can save thousands. The cost is reduced by nearly 2/3 and can be fitted within 48-72 hours.
