Titan 1 3d printer

nother printer that looks interesting for t-gauge... it's about half the price of a form 1...

An interesting project....but I don't think I would invest at the moment if I had any cash available.

The promised resolution is very good but as a 3D designer, I'm put off slightly by the distortion issue.......look at the feet of the Eiffel tower: http://3dprintingindustry.com/2014/05/16/titan-1-dlp-3d-printer/

Printer technology is moving at a reasonable pace and I knew there'd be a variety of claims and counter claims about resolution and printing speed...neither of which I feel are as important as accuracy of results and printability. I may be in the market for a second printer in the next six months. At present, I have doubts about whether there'll be a printer that will suit my requirements.....and I'll have to come to some form of compromise.

The cost of resin and the fact that you need to buy a new build vat every few prints ( same as form 1 ) is also offputting.

I like the direction the price is going though.
