Sketchbot 3d Print Progress



How cool is this? Gabriel from Crystalline Models was kind enough to snap a few pictures of the Sketchbot model in mid-print. I would love to see a time lapse of this process. The printer being used is the Objet Eden260V, which has a .00006” layer thicknesses (16 microns).

I'm extremely impressed with the turnaround time. I uploaded the geometry Friday afternoon, the print was finished later that night, then shipped out on Saturday. I could be receiving the pieces as early as tomorrow (Monday), which means I can start creating molds ASAP. Stay tuned...
