Hey all,

Wanted to share my little project I'm working on Very Happy

At events there is one particular question I've heard many times:
"do you have a 3d printer with you, can I see it?"

Ofcourse, as you can understand our printers are really big, and if we take them to events, we can't keep printing the models as efficient as we would like.
So how about 3D printing our machines in Full Color Sandstone to show you which printer prints your models.

So here is one teaser of our biggest printer, "The Beast" which prints White Strong & Flexible:


Kind regards,

Mitchell Jetten

I trust that the finished project will not just be a model of the printer sitting idle, but rather one
of it halfway through printing a model of itself printing... (you get the idea Very Happy )

Unfortunately with WSF you won't see the models that have been printed already as they are covered with powder
However, as you can see in the picture of the printer, it's currently heating a new layer (which is why it's so light in the printer)

With the other machine that prints our FUD models, you can see the models being printed:

edit: hmm i just spotted that i used my personal account for this post Smile
It's me, Mitchell Jetten
