Home Page | News | $100 Peachy Printer on Kickstarter
Rinnovated Design just launched their 3D SLA printer on Kickstarter. This is a crazy unique printer, for only $100! Show them your funding love and support this awesome product which could help bring SLA printers to the masses!
I just pledged to buy the peachy printer, could you let me know which of your resins I can use and if you have a contact selling resin in the Netherlands?
Hi Mike! The PP was developed with SubG resin, although we will most likely be developing a resin specifically for that printer as well to take advantage of all its unique features. We only ship from the USA right now, but hopefully we can get a distribution partner worked out to make shipping to the EU cheaper before the PP ships.
Hey Mike and Josh,
I’m another backer from the Netherlands. It might be interesting to keep contact for bying together and/or distributing for the Netherlands/Europe. I’m involved in a new fablab in Alkmaar,NL, “De Kaasfabriek”, we could provide reselling.
We will certainly be looking into it. We will have to figure out logistics as to where would be the best place to locate it, etc. But I will let you know if the Netherlands makes the list! :]
It would be amazing if you can set up a way of distribution in the EU.
I’m from Germany, but buying in .NL would definately benefit me, too.
Is there a mailinglist or something I can subscribe to to be notified when / if this happens?
That’s just crazy awesome! Totally hands down
Hi – I also just pledge for a PP… I think I’ll be ordering some resin from you in the coming months – me and lots of others I’m guessing.
The PP looks awesome – a genius rethink.
All the best.
Hi, I’m a PP backer from New Zealand, please show us lot down-under some love here and also Australia in the future when you are considering international distribution partners.
Looking forward to many future purchases from you guys.
Hi! I’m a 3D developer, also from the Netherlands, and would like to put in my two cents to hopefully make the Netherlands (or Germany) a distribution point. Resin-type printing is something that I have not seen yet in the 3D printing scene here in the Netherlands (most of the printers use ‘glue-sticks’. But the moment I saw the gluestick printers I thought ‘well, this is awesome and I definitely want one!’ but my experience from having worked around CNC milling machines and industrial resin-laser printers gives me a solid preference to resin-laser printers. The peachy printer certainly seems capable!
My experience with buying products from the USA is that it is a risk due to surprise import taxes: You could suddenly be facing the mailman demanding you to pay extra cash at the door because customs checked out your package and charge you more. This will make people skittish to order the resin and thus invest in this printing method: If you are able to then yes, please, investigate in a good location to service Europeans. I feel that a lot of people will be superhappy to buy your resins.
Josh, I’ve seen the Peachy and I’m curious about the resin on salt water theory. I did try it with your resin and it seemed to work better with the SubG than the SubG+. The SubG+ still floats fine though. I would like to take the idea a step further and try a top-down printing method, like standard SLA printers but use the floating resin idea.
My question is: What about the surface tension of the resin? Does it flow over the previous cured layer as the Z moves upward, like .01mm or less layers?
I’m having a hard time believing that it does. What have you observed with this in mind?
Have you thought of adding a surfactant to the resin to reduce the surface tension?
How is the Peachy achieving this?
Hey Jon! You’re spot on with the surfactant. A combination of low viscosity with a good surfactant is key to the resins I’ll be supplying for that printer.
Awesome! Thanks! Well, if you can pull that off, I’ll be designing a top-down version of my printer using the floating resin principal. The biggest drawback to top down printers is that you need GALLONS of resin to fill the vat. If you can make a resin with very low surface tension properties, I will experiment with a top down floating resin printer. There’s only so big you can print with bottom up printers before you start to have release issues and gravity pulling on your build.
I will still submerge the part slightly below the resin surface then raise it to proper Z level. With low surface tension, that should keep the new resin sitting on top of the build thin enough for accurate layers. Keep me posted!
That sounds genius! I’ll be excited to see it, and if you sell them I might buy one! :] Sticking is always an issue, so that could solve some problems!
Re-post (that last comment looks all messed up, at least on my end)
Did you find a surfactant that is compatible with your resin? All I seem to see online are surfactants for water based liquids. Of course I just did minimal researching so far. Let me know how it’s going.
Yeah I need to work on these comment layouts lol. And yes, I have a surfactant I’m using that works well with my resins :]
