    Lightbulb 1/95th scale parts in 3d printing

    I do a lot of ship modelling of military ships, specifically 1/96th scale. I use a Tormach PCNC1100 machine now to do most of my prototyping, but i can see that a 3d printer has some advantages.

    However, I am concerned with extrusion lines, and if they can at all be eliminated somehow. Or is this just not possible? It defeats the purpose of the quick 3d print if I have to spend hours of time after the print to clean them up to a museum level quality.

    And I don't know if the higher price 3d machines can do any better. I have rarely seen a blown up 3d printed object that was "smooth".

    Thanks

    Interesting. 100 microns is still a fairly large layer.

    You can upload models for quotes using quickparts.com (3d systems) there is a variety of materials available using SLA. Depending how the parts were modeled you should achieve very nice finish. The quoting process is instantaneous and will give you a feel for what it costs. If using a decent modeling package, parts should be fine.

    I noticed a 2-3mm per hour build rate mentioned on several post. Is this the reason that I can not find any 3d printers that have a larger build volume than about an 8" cube? Personally for my purposes I need to build a machine with about a 40" x 20" x 12" work envelope but am I going to be waiting a week to get my model's built? I can reduce the build time some by using a large nozzle where possible before having to switch over to a fine nozzle to do the fine detail work, I am just trying to get an idea of average build rate per hour before I go trying to make a large printer. Thanks in advance for any input and advise from anyone that can help me.

    I think that you are using a 3D printer of low resolution. If your work demands better print quality and resolution, you could opt to get a better equipment to obtain better quality prints.
