Re: 3-D Printing

You're English is excellent. Have been watching many Fusion 360 tutorials, mostly from a person named Lars. His tutorials are easy to understand and well thought out as well as fun to watch. Some tutorials from others have put me to sleep or they seem to miss discussing a step.

The Saturn 3D printer is listed by the mfr as being available on Amazon in October and am leaning towards ordering one. It is a big step, getting into an entirely new production method.

Up till now have used rubber molds and casting materials, with the cast almost doubling in the last few years, and it is very difficult to cast delicate parts which are also prone to breakage. Making a two part mold is also time consuming and then there is the storage issue of all the molds. Once learned 3D printing would have lots of benefits.
