In Topic: 'Dremel' Knockoffs

I have a Harbor Freight variable speed corded tool. I also have had two Dremel cordless that didn't last. Harbor Freight tools are a lot better than they used to be. If you buy one, make sure to get the one with the cord as I have a cordless and the battery charge doesn't seem to last long enough for me. The go from very slow to very fast and are adjustable.

Yes, clear plastic 3d printing is definitely hear. Check out this monocle done on a form 1 at Form labs.    http://formlabs.com/...inted-formlabs/

Then there water clear prints here  http://www.buildyour....php?f=9&t=2681

 

And then this for print speed increase.  http://3dprint.com/5...ast-3d-printer/   Keep in mind that this 3d printer was printing at 10 micron layer thickness and that 100 mm is roughly 4" and that it is a dlp desktop machine that is able to print a larger footprint subject in the same time frame.

Yea Art. But, you have to remember,with injection molding subjects, If you want a specific part or model, you have to rely on the kit manufacturers or the after market for parts or models. This is not the only system to speed up sla printing. Once I can get this worthless Windows 8.1 off this new laptop, I'll show you what else is developing. I hate Windows. I can't believe how long it took just complete this post and what I went through and get it  right.

I have found it at Michael's years ago, but they stopped carrying it. Hobby Lobby carries a different brand than what I have, but it should work just as well. You are looking for "metal leaf adhesive" not "gold leaf bond".
