MakiBox Update - Printing Proof

2021-06-02 17:47 by Jonathan Buford (comments: 21)

Kicking the tires a bit.

We've been working on getting some more high quality test prints out while we are getting the final production preparation together.

As you can see, things are quite good. I think it is likely that most users will be able to do that kind of Yoda out of the box if you level the bed well. Most of these prints are now at 0.1mm layer height. It does make a big difference on certain shapes. But, the downside is that it takes a while longer.

We are back to using Slic3r. Kisslicer seems to be a very good tool as well, but with the new version of Slic3r, it is noticably improved for the output.

As mentioned in the video, we have some awesome updates to 5D Print to show you soon, so keep watching this space.

Well done guys, I have the use of a $2500 printer, nowhere near as flexible or capable as this, really looking forward to July (August delivery maybe? No pressure)

PRESSURE, no seriously I am glad that the product should be worth the wait.
