High Resolution compared to FDM Kit
This weekend I decided to compare the results of my Homemade High Resolution 3d Printer (I need find better name, this one is too long) with the existing low costs FDM printers (kits). I am huge fan of the FDM kits and I think they are great but they can't deliver professional results.
I have printed the objects with 50 microns (this is so good that I can't see myself printing on 100 micros again... :-) )
Take a look on the pics....
Okay, I don't need to tell you that my whistle is the second one....
Another one.... the first picture is the FDM object and the last two pics from my Printer.
BTW, I will upload a video this week.
PS: Sorry that I haven't be able to answer the comments as I have been too busy... I will try next weekend.
About the Project
I have been dreaming about having a 3D Printer at home for many years, but the ones with good quality are not affordable and the low costs just deliver poor quality. Sounds crazy but I decided to build a high resolution 3D Printer by myself at home (people actually said that I was crazy and this was impossible). The funny thing I never saw this type of machines in real life, and still haven’t seen one besides the one I built.
Now that I succeed building the first prototype, the target is to bring this low cost 3D Printer to every home, so we are developing the first affordable one with high resolution.
I hope you enjoy our blog, follow us and you can have this printer in your home soon.
