Aug 7, 2017 at 6:25 AM - Bill Monroe: I heard there's a topical cream for that... Aug 7, 2017 at 6:54 AM - Toro1966: Haha. hey Bill. Aug 7, 2017 at 6:57 AM - Toro1966: In my case, the only medication is a large 3d printer! Aug 7, 2017 at 8:12 AM - Geof: Hey guys. Good morning Aug 7, 2017 at 8:42 AM - daniel871: @Toro1966 - Save up for a Stratasys or go home. Aug 7, 2017 at 8:43 AM - Toro1966: Lol - I would need to mortgage my home! Aug 7, 2017 at 8:54 AM - daniel871: Yeah, well, wouldn't it be worth it for one of these: http://www.stratasys.com/3d-printers/j750 Aug 7, 2017 at 8:57 AM - daniel871: Or maybe the Objet1000-Plus: http://www.stratasys.com/3d-printers/objet1000-plus Aug 7, 2017 at 8:57 AM - daniel871: 1000mm x 800mm x 500mm build space :drool: Aug 7, 2017 at 8:58 AM - daniel871: Also, up to 14 different materials in a single print in that last one. Aug 7, 2017 at 8:58 AM - daniel871: Which would most likely be multiple colors in three different materials and then support materials, but still. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:03 AM - Geof: what kills me about them is the sheer price per print. We would have gone that route had it been at least close to competetive. Its in whole other league lol Aug 7, 2017 at 9:16 AM - daniel871: Well yeah, but they cater to companies that make the kind of money that would make the phrase "I'd kill for that kind of salary" realistic. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:17 AM - Geof: lol thats what we said to the salesmen when they were here pitching their machines Aug 7, 2017 at 9:18 AM - Geof: "we have alot of clients that make things every day, our service plan is unbeatable, but yes most of these companies are in house producing prototypes" Aug 7, 2017 at 9:18 AM - Geof: Aug 7, 2017 at 9:18 AM - Geof: (dont get me wrong, I'd stop what I'm doing and join up on that payroll right now lol. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:46 AM - daniel871: Yeah, I've almost bought older Stratasys FDM 2000 machines on a couple different occasions just for the opportunity to play with them and compare them to the machines I use now. Had one on ebay the other week that only wanted $500 for it, came with the original software CD, manual, and a pallet of cartridges to run it. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:46 AM - daniel871: I keep having to remind myself that a machine like that would probably get ruined in shipping. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:47 AM - daniel871: Also I don't really have the room for one any more. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:53 AM - Geof: We have thought about it as well. I've seen a few of those deals and just recently passed on one that was basically free (had to buy the material they had though). Aug 7, 2017 at 9:53 AM - Geof: Alot of the issue I had was....when the material "they have" is gone...I have to buy from Stratasys anyway so back up that creek lol. Would be fun to play with though for sure. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:53 AM - Geof: Seen quite a few and they are pretty impressive. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:54 AM - Toro1966: Yep - I'll have to stick to something in this stratosphere - price wise Aug 7, 2017 at 9:54 AM - Toro1966: The new CR-10S should be out in a couple of weeks. Dual z lead screws, filament sensor, etc. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:54 AM - Toro1966: New board as well. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:54 AM - Toro1966: It's a little pricier, but it is all relative I guess. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:57 AM - daniel871: The older Stratasys cartridges are easily hacked with an Arduino flasher, Geof. Aug 7, 2017 at 9:58 AM - daniel871: Also, holy LOL Fuck these guys: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ROBO-3D-R1-Plus-10x9x8-Inch-ABS-PLA-3D-Printer-White-NEW/142356205477 Aug 7, 2017 at 9:58 AM - daniel871: Scrolling through 3d printer listings and saw that. Aug 7, 2017 at 10:03 AM - Toro1966: Can't believe they sold two already! Aug 7, 2017 at 10:04 AM - daniel871: That's not the only ridiculously priced thing they listed. Aug 7, 2017 at 10:05 AM - daniel871: https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=&_ssn=scientific1977&_sop=16 Aug 7, 2017 at 10:05 AM - daniel871: I bet it's something like "You need to sell these things and get them out of the house!" "OK, I'm listing them on ebay." Aug 7, 2017 at 10:05 AM - Toro1966: lol Aug 7, 2017 at 10:06 AM - daniel871: A $10k multimeter. Aug 7, 2017 at 10:06 AM - daniel871: http://www.ebay.com/itm/KEYSIGHT-TE...521199?hash=item21261f872f:g:IqAAAOSw42JZDMMS Aug 7, 2017 at 10:06 AM - Toro1966: sold my other R1+ last week for $500. It had E3DV6, LEDs, and dual fans as well. Aug 7, 2017 at 10:06 AM - Toro1966: Only sold it because we have two others in the house and I am getting a third (bigger). Aug 7, 2017 at 10:12 AM - Geof: thats a good deal on the Robo you got Toro Aug 7, 2017 at 10:34 AM - OutsourcedGuru: I'm loving the $10K heatshrink tubing Aug 7, 2017 at 11:40 AM - daniel871: That's nothing, check out this $10k bottle of loctite: http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOCTITE-242...777247?hash=item21142347df:g:fFgAAOSw-YVXnniQ Aug 7, 2017 at 12:01 PM - Geof: got 3 review too Aug 7, 2017 at 12:01 PM - Geof: 466/month dan. You could own it. Aug 7, 2017 at 12:06 PM - daniel871: I could have an Ultimaker 3 printer farm for that. Aug 7, 2017 at 12:14 PM - Geof: I think we had a difference of opinion on what makes a farm lol but you could have a few for sure. Aug 7, 2017 at 12:19 PM - daniel871: Okay fine, Monoprice Maker Select V2.1 farm. Aug 7, 2017 at 12:34 PM - daniel871: Maybe the "Ultimate" they sell if 20 printers is enough to be a farm instead of 33. Aug 7, 2017 at 12:41 PM - Geof: Lol !!!! Aug 7, 2017 at 1:16 PM - daniel871: Hey, it's been done: https://web.wpi.edu/Pubs/E-project/Available/E-project-042617-120614/unrestricted/FinalReport.pdf Aug 7, 2017 at 1:27 PM - daniel871: They had issues with the robot arm frying everything that fed the controlling server they were using, but the printers themselves did fine. Aug 7, 2017 at 1:39 PM - OutsourcedGuru: They forgot the part where they need a facial-recognition robot to detect when your part looks like the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Aug 7, 2017 at 1:43 PM - daniel871: Never had that issue on mine. Aug 7, 2017 at 1:44 PM - daniel871: I've had shifts and jams, but no balls of spaghetti. Aug 7, 2017 at 1:45 PM - Geof: Ditto no spaghetti balls. Failed prints but like that Aug 7, 2017 at 1:47 PM - OutsourcedGuru: https://www.reddit.com/r/3Dprinting/comments/4pd91e/when_your_3d_printer_gives_you_spaghetti/ Aug 7, 2017 at 1:49 PM - daniel871: Ugh, Reddit. Aug 7, 2017 at 2:14 PM - Ryan TeGantvoort: i must say that Robot integrated 3D printer farm is pretty sweet. Aug 7, 2017 at 2:22 PM - daniel871: Yeah, their conclusion that you need to use a newer arm than they used to run it properly basically indicated that the only reason their process didn't work well was because they chose the wrong robotic arm to do it. Aug 7, 2017 at 2:36 PM - daniel871: I haven't read previous reports, but the 3dhubs report here doesn't even mention any Robo printers being used in hubs. https://www.3dhubs.com/s3fs-public/3d-printing-trends-Q3-2017.pdf Aug 7, 2017 at 2:46 PM - daniel871: I know there at least used to be a couple hubs with them, but did none of them complete enough prints to show up in the stats? Aug 7, 2017 at 4:18 PM - WheresWaldo: I have some sample output from the HP ProJet 3500, it is a very nice printer.
