New 3D printer today! (video)


Recommended Posts

Thanks to a good recommendation by @my66s55 , I now have a second BIGGER 3D printer just delivered today. It's another Phrozen model since the first one was pretty much trouble free, and I already got it up and running with a complete body of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso. I scaled it to 1/24th in the slicer, since it would eventually be a transkit with an Italeri kit I've got lying around. I shot a quick vid of it running not long after the print started.

Despite the not very steep angle, I usually have my settings to get the print as smooth as possible, so it's around a 12 hour run for this one. So far so good, and overnight while I'm asleep it'll be done, and I can get 'er all cleaned up by morning.

Dave, as is mentioned on the video, it's a Phrozen Sonic Mighty 4K. I use Chitubox for the slicer as to me that's the most user friendly. Mods I've done with Blender and with Fusion 360.

The jealousy flows through me :D Looking forward to seeing the stuff you'll be printing.

I've had my eye on a the Anycubic Photon Mono X 6k...can't quite swing it yet. I'd love to be able to print entire bodies without cutting the files into chunks!

I would skip on that printer and spring either for the Phrozen Mighty 8K or the Saturn 2. They are essentially the same printer, but if your willing to drop a dime you could also get the Jupiter, and last if your willing to really splurge get the Mega 8K.

I appreciate the recommendations, Charles, thanks!
