One thing I don't like about the Ender 3 is it limits the way I can make things, and to an extent, it also limits the finish. Don't get me wrong it produces amazing 3D prints, but I want to go bigger and better.
The way an FDM printer works has drawbacks for specific shapes and complexities of objects.
For these products, I want to up my game, and so I have decided to invest in my first ever resin printer.
I have opted for an Elgoo Mars, which gets good reviews and should allow me to create even more beautiful products to spice up my sex life and that of my readers.
It means learning a whole new manufacturing process, and that is a challenge that I am going to love.
It also means what my products will look and perform even better in the future.
I have some secret projects that I am working on that I will share when I have finished the designs.
I hope that I have made the right decision, it has cost me a small fortune.
Still, hopefully, I will be able to break even by selling some gas mask accessories to keep my bank manager off my back.
This is an image of my recently designed pussy clamp bipolar sniffer box electrode (wow that's a mouthful). Once I have designed something I then need to slice that model ready for 3D printing but before that happens I need to decide where printing supports go to support the model as it is printed.
This is an example of how many supports are needed to print out a complicated 3D model. Once printed they then need removing from the model and it then needs tidying up - lots of work.
Fingers crossed it will work when it gets here.
