I've been professionally involved in computer graphics since '95, and 3d printing since '12. Have two printers:
- For small stuff, have been using my MakerBot Replicator Original (single head) #8339, Sailfish Firmware. Purchased when it was first released. Up until Dec 2014 I sliced using Makerware, but anything newer is done in Simplify3D.
- For bigger prints, custom build C-Bot: 12x12x21" build volume, Core-XY kinematics,1.0mm E3D-v6 Volcano hotend, Marlin firmware running on a Rumba board. Complete build log here. Slice in Simplify3D.
My designs are created and released for fun, as a hobby: Since so much of what I do professionally is virtual, it's nice to create something physical when I get home :)
Other 3D printing I've done, posted to my blog:
