3D printers, anyone here do 3D CNC?
I'm interested in these now.
I didn't used to be but now I am, because I'm studying diff things and polymer's is one of the things I'm interested in.
I was curious, if anyone here knows about 3d printing perhaps you can answer this...
Are you restricted to a certain kind of polymer, or can you use most anything?
For ex., vinegar and milk, just a extremely simple example...
A 3d printer I came across for the public was called SeeMeCNC H-1 (this isn't an advert...).
There's probably a few others out there too.
The idea that you can write something up in cad, take it to another program and convert it for some cnc program and print it out in 3d sounds awesome to me .
I'm interested in it because I would like to get into rc planes, it would make it more interesting because I could design it in a virtual wind tunnel with x-plane, fly it virtually, then take that data and print out a rc ver.
I don't know exactly how to do that lol, but I know it's all there to doit.

We have a fairly large section for DIY 3d printers going on at cnczone, check it out.
