Last week I was away on vacation. The week before, I'd loaned my Cube to Peyton Duncan, who brilliantly used it.
This week, the Cube is visiting the Hagley Museum in Wilmington, DE. I will be writing more about Hagley in the near future. It's a wonderful place.
In the meantime, I am printing with my RapMan 3.2 to test designs for the Cube. And, I'll have some observations about what it takes to get layer-to-layer print accuracy with a 3D printer... something the Cube doesn't have any issues so far. :)
My contact at Hagley reports that the Cube has caused considerable excitement and that they are enjoying their foray into 3D printing. So, we agreed that they can keep it at least for another week beyond this one. In the meantime, I've begun to explore Cubify Invent in a more detailed way.
I'm also happy to report that being able to turn my attention back onto RapMan improvements has resulted in finding a way to completely eliminate Z-Axis wobble caused by slight deviations in the long screw rods. I'll post these findings in my more generalized 3D Printer Users blog shortly. And, I will print the new part design out on the Cube when I get it back. While the PLA parts are working, ABS is a tougher, more robust, material than PLA.
