3D Printing Capability and Capacity

Maker Capability and Capacity


When you have a lot of parts to design, it helps to have capacity to quickly build and test. That's why I maintain 3 fully networked FDM 3D printers.

The Type A Series 1 Pro has a 12x12x12 inch build volume, all metal hot end for high-temperature materials, a heated glass bed for improved adhesion and thermal stability, and up to a 0.15mm layer height resolution. I have upgraded the system with a radial nozzle cooling fan that is driven by a centrifugal blower.

The Printrbot Simple Metal has a 6x6x6 inch build volume, all metal hot end, and up to a 0.1mm layer height resolution. It doesn't print as quickly as the Type A, but it produces better surface finish and accuracy.

The Kossel Delta printer has a 7x7x8 inch build volue. Due to the delta kinematics setup it produces very high z jog speeds allowing for specialty printing patterns. Later I will be modifying it to produce a 6x6x12 inch build volume by shortening the connecting rods and using the printer specifically for long and slender printed parts.
