I managed to join & watch briefly, but unfortunatley I had to leave for another meeting
Thanks for your time Julia, some really impressive and interesting stuff!
That was an amazing peek into @Julia Truchsess workshop!
Julia’s presentation was amazing! Is Christian going to speak at another time?
You are all too kind, glad you enjoyed it!
Julia you mentioned a good 1st printer for a beginner… what was the brand and model?
Well, if you like to see something, maybe provide a topic, so we can prepare something to show within 10 minutes.
The Cetus is I think a good starter machine.
Backed by a large, long-established company with excellent engineering, relatively low entry price, good-sized build volume, integrated slicing software, and an active community on Facebook. Its “minimalist” design lends itself to customization down the road and exposes all the main components so you really see how it works.
Not suitable for ABS unless you add a heated bed and enclosure, but I wouldn’t generally recommend ABS anyway. Its aluminum print bed has some kind of nice magic coating that makes PLA adhere really well. I haven’t tried flexible (rubber-like) materials with it, but I think others have had success.
Other items mentioned:
TInkercad browser-based, super-easy-to-learn 3D modeling software
Thingiverse 3D model repository
Raise3D professional-level printers
This also looks like quite a good value. Creality has had good success and wide acceptance over the past few years, but I’ve never used one of their printers:
My computer was acting up and unfortunately I missed the middle part of Julia’s share. But I did enjoy all the stuff I did see! (Although now I just want a bunch of expensive things I can’t afford lol)
