This is a great part to test desktop, rep rap printers and is a great way to see the calibration in your printer but if anyway wants a stratasys grade one i have a Dimension 1200es SST printer that prints with soluble support and stratasys can be abit slow at sending things out so just send me over a message with scaling and ill see what i can do but limit is 1 per person due to them cost £15. great print though thanks for the upload!
The part we have from Stratasys is apparantly printed with 0.2mm wide extrude and 0.1mm layers. There is obvious banding under a microscope between the side-by-side extrudate leaving tiny gaps inbetween every other pass. Suggests to me a aliasing issue in the printer.
It's the version without U under lid and with the two holes. It is not watertight and you can feel air escaping when blowing into it.
Another thing I see in the microscope is a rifled appearance of the finished surface. This appears to be result from previous layer being a support-layer that has later been removed. The finish in the dimples is smooth so it has probably not been ripped apart, but dissolved. Maby they print these in bulk using both the width and heigh capability of the machine to print a big block of them, then dissolve to seperate?
It looks awsome though.
