If you build it...
"Build it" is exactly what we will be able to do some time next week.
We have had one of these bad boys on order for months: The Makerbot Z18.
Sadly I'll be on holiday when it arrives, but it has a built in camera and is networked, so I may be able to get a minion to load some plastic and work it from a holiday villa. We'll see.
Its claim to fame is that it is big enough to print a full size wearable storm trooper helmet. This means a big build area.
Getting that to work means some clever stuff with heat - and the whole thing has a heated chamber. It is all to do with making sure the plastic does not shrink and warp as it cools after printing.
Apparently it will be arriving on a pallet. Once we have it, we'll be offering our 3D printing services on a new and bigger scale.
The last job was heads for some fun robots for Plymouth Uni.
