3D Printing
#1
Any other 3D Printing hobbyists out there?

I work for a small automation company, and at my office I'm the unofficial keeper of our 3 printers - a 3D Systems CubeX Duo, formlabs form1+, and Stratasys Dimension 1200es SST. At home I have an M3D Micro.

I also work for a small automation company, but we're not utilizing 3D printers for our designs or prototypes, haven't seen one in the workplace since Christie and RIM days.

It's such a cool technology. Like any tool, once you have it, you find uses for it and shift your way of thinking a bit. For me as a designer, it's huge because instead of burdening the machine shop to make me a test fixture or piece of machinery I'm designing, to test - I can simply print the parts overnight, with no labour or intervention by anyone, and then verify my designs. For high volume parts (sometimes our machines have hundreds of similar parts), geometry and functional verification is huge and we've paid for the cost of our printers over and over in rework costs alone.
