Hope all are doing well. Just saw this on youtube and thought I'd have to share here. I've often wanted to start a topic on 3D printers and printing and this gives me the perfect opportunity.

This new resin printer is almost as big as my Creality CR-10 fdm printer. Totally insane. The price is up there, but for what you get, it's pretty damn cheap.

That’s really awesome. I just dipped into 3D printing this past Christmas with an Ender 3 Pro. It looked to be a safe option for learning. Now I know I need something that can print full helmets ha ha.

I would love to have a resin one that big. Absolutely awesome.

This isn’t accurate but it’s the latest project for the boy.

Time for filling then sanding then priming then filling then sanding then priming then filling then... :lol

Yeah, big is fun, but takes a lot of hours and the printers can be noisy, so you really need to consider whether running it through the nighttime is possible before doing full size one-piece helmet prints, etc.

When printing in sections it is a good idea to trim the corners of the edges, so they won't leave a raised edge when glued together that will be hard to remove.

I shouldn’t have printed with a brim. I was worried about the height of the parts and introducing a wobble. I trimmed a bunch off them then said to hell with it I’ll sand it at a slow speed and hope for the best.

We shall see.

Wow the resin printer is massive, I just started looking into the resin ones my self once all this cv19 stuff started up, Been slowly getting back into models and have a nice star wars venator to put together and man some of the upgrades you can print me it look amazing.

But looks like ill need to wait a bit as everything is sold out.

That printer is ridiculously huge and cool as can be.

I will live vicariously through you, ha ha. I wish the resin side of 3D printing was cheaper. I would really like to switch and probably will eventually just because of the time saved. I’m sure as time goes on the prices will drop. I would hope so, anyway.

I’m mainly just printing out costume stuff. Although I think I may look into the Zipguy action figure. Pretty neat with the upgrades he has with it.

Insane what 3D printing has been able to achieve. Now you can "draw" your 3D prints with the 3D print pen.

And this channel - Hoo's Mini World - makes pretty amazing 3D prints in hand.

Especially impressed by the Clint Eastwood print:

But there is also a motorcycle, showing that even mechanical objects are possible to make with a 3D pen:
