3D Printing

Ok, so a lot has happened in the past few years, much procrastination, an additional child, a move to a new (old) country!

I’ve finally bitten the bullet and gone purchased me a 3D printermathingy

One of these –


Wanhao Duplicator 9 Manufacturers website


It’s a little larger  than I’d anticipated – I can print 0.036 of a cubic meter on this thing!….If I ever get my head into an MRI, this beast’ll do a full 1-1 print!

I still own the 3020T CNC – see It’s arrived!

It’s setup right next to my new toy and now looking somewhat inadequate in size…..I’ve decided to keep both machines right now as it fits my procrastinatory nature quite well….if I can do subtractive manufacturing AND additive manufacturing, they really add up to nothing? (crappy dad joke!)

I’ll hopefully update a little more often, there’s little information out there about these D9’s, maybe what I post will help some of you decide to buy, maybe not?
