Fusion3 F410 3D Printer Just Arrived!

by Jonathan Phillips

Christmas came early this year! We're stepping up our prototyping game with this fancy new 3D printer.

VIDEO: Our New 3D Printer Arrives!

Some days there's an event in the shop that gets everyone out of their chairs and gathered out in the warehouse. This was one of those days.

We've been prototyping new tool designs for a while now using smaller 3D Printers. They get the job done, but we've hit the point where we needed more speed and reliability. The time between idea and production should decrease significantly now that we can rapid test concepts and tweak them easier and with a greater variety of print materials.


The first look... we're in love.

It was much bigger than we expected.

The plate rises to meet the print head, as opposed to our old ones, where the print head always descended to the plate.

I don't know how this print head works, but it's mesmerizing.

One of the first test prints. The resolution is already way better than our old ones.

Another template. The cap actually threads on to the bottle quite nicely.


Conclusion

We're super excited to get this thing up and running and start pumping out prototypes. The ideas for new products never stop, so this printer will probably be running every day, and sometimes every night as well.

3D Printing With Carbon Fiber Filament

In the course of printing our new product prototypes, we ended up running out of standard ABS filament. Until we scrounge up some new ABS, we figured we'd play around with a spool of carbon fiber filament that we had laying around.
