Dremel 3D printer
This article was published Aug 12, 2018.
So, finally it happen! I been involved with 3D printing for several years now and doing my own 3D drawings for about 1+ year, but have not bought a printer until now. Last friday I invested in a Dremel 3D40 3D printer from Claus Ohlson , a swedish firm I bought many tools from before, but never anything computer related. The reason for this printer is according to my research last few months, it seems as a reliable and very consistent printer, also quite good quality for it´s price range. So far it has lived up to it´s reputation, hope it stays like that!
Here is first result, a phone stand I designed last week. I am really impressed of what a normal home printer can do these days!
Only sad thing is that my 350+ finished and tested drawings I uploaded to Shapeways so far does not work on a home printer, at least not without major alterations..... FUD from SW and PLA on a home printer like this is a complete different thing altogether... On SW I have to be very careful with to thick material, else the price go skyhigh. On this printer it is almost the opposite, a bit extra material in the walls only makes it more sturdy and less chance of warping or other problems.
