Form 1 - 3D Prints

Form 1 - 3D Prints

Postby hal » Sat Oct 19, 2013 11:31 am

Hello,

just recived a FormLab Form1 3D printer and tested with a file scanned with David Laser scanner some years ago:a piece of a toy, showed in the "David in Action (figures)" topic.

The printing test was done in 1 hour with liquid trasparent resin, at 100 microns (the machine can print @100, 50 and 25 microns). The mesh was smoothed and didn't have al the sharp edges of original object, so also the print looks more smoothed then original. But that is because my scanned file, not because the print resolution.

Trasparent resin don't allow me to see easily the surface quality. So I will go to paint it.

Best regards,
Mattia

Welcome to the club of liquid resin users.

Regarding resolution the Form 1 should be like a Mercedes under the home printers. :wink:

You mentioned one hour print time at 100 µm. How many layers did you print for the gun? Was it lying flat or tilted, if yes, what was the angle? And what about the supports for overhanging parts? I have heard that they would use a special intelligent technique which allows less supports to set before because the software "remembers" these parts and would print them later on.

Hello Walter,

sorry, I don't remeber how many layers. And the mesh was oriented by the software itself, for the best printing result. It was placed angulated, not flat.
The supports are easy to remove and not so much. But user can set its density.I will post some photos about that, at next print.

Thanks and regards,
Mattia

... a more "visible" painted version of the scanned object. Other print test visible here.
