We turned these out in record time for CrossFit SK, going from initial request to complete design, samples, 3d printing the full order, post print cleanup, ringing, invoicing and shipping in just two business days.
This looks like a fantastic new direction for 3D printing to take. We have been investigating the next machine to add to our shop, hopefully this one reaches production very soon. The idea of decreasing print time by a factor of 25 is fantastic.
I am anxious to see where the price point for these machines lands and what kinds of goo can be used for resins.
The Lyme School contacted us for help in creating a special gift for folks that helped with recent renovations. The initial request was for these 3D printed bolts with extruded wording on the faces.
We looked at it and it was not going to be cost effective to 3D print those bolts due to the size. We also had concerns about the resolution of all the requested text to be extruded on the faces. We went through some design options with the school and came up with the bolts you see here. These are 1/2-6 grade 5 steel bolts and nuts. They came preserved in an oily coating. We had them chemical stripped and black oxide coated. From there we applied a brushed gold finish laser foil, cut out the desired wording and then applied MANY MANY MANY coats of clear lacquer to give it a beautiful luster. The school was very happy with the results and these little mementos (just over 8 pounds a piece) will definitely keep everyone's bookshelves from floating away.
