3d printing slightly thin curved walls.4/30/18
is it possible to 3D print slightly thin curved wall around 2mm thick in a vertical manner and will the wall be flexible enough if I further curve it by hand? I mean to say will it be able to deform as well as regain the shape and if possible which material should I use?
Thank u, I hope to get help in the comments below, have a nice day.
Norm, don't take this wrong, but you're barking up the wrong tree with some of your questions here. This forum is for professional woodworkers. There are even bylaws for guidance. Your question about buying a table saw or miter saw in the CNC forum is being read by professionals with shops or factories. Many reading your questions have multiples of each! You'd get a lot more help on hobby sites like sawmill creek.org and 3D printing and basic CNC questions better directed to CNCzone.com Good luck.
I dabble in 3DP and cut parts for a large 3DP company, I would try facebook and do a search for 3d printing,, lots of end users there
Thats funny we are purchasing an 3D SLA Printer for our shop to do some prototype , custom work, and customer example prints and we are definitely not hobbyists.. For that matter we also have a big HAAS VMC as well as our CR Onsrud routers and six head moulders etc.. Its one thing to not have any experience or interest in the posters question but it is another to dismiss it as if it does not belong here. This is the CNC forum and last I checked the 3D printers are CNC machines. If I had the machine here and had a bit more experience with it I would try to answer the question for him but since we have not received it yet I will leave the answers to the other professionals here...
#d Printing is going to have if not already an impact on many facets of our work, We make parts for a company now and i am producing a military modeling project on my own.
Father and Son were standin in Mann Tool one day Eyeing a CNC machine, Son was all into it, Father smarted off "Son what you gonna do when everyone has one" Son responded " Do We really want to be the Last ones to get one" Father wrote a check later that day, Those guys have doubled in size with no layoffs.
I would not rule out understanding 3d printing yet i certainly would not Ignore it.
