3D Printing with Plant Based Resins – Our New Anycubic Photon M3+ Resin Printer

We now have new Anycubic Photon M3+ 3D resin printer. They allow us to use a Plant Based Resin for our prints. The printers also run at a low cost, unlike our former resin printers that were very expensive to run. The M3+ prints at 6K resolution, with a maximum print size of 24.5 x 19.7 x 12.2 cm / 9.6 x 7.8 x 4.8 inches. Our results have been very good so far, with very high resolution test objects.

Easily Create A file To Be Machined On Our Tormach PCNC440

We have just completed a new manual that guides you to easily create a file that can be handed to Makerspace for machining on the Tormach. Makerspace can take your 2D or 3D files and create the tool paths for the Tormach to then machine out your object. Your object can be different metals, like brass and aluminum.
