At the moment we are cursing as the 60k printer is waiting for warranty service from the manufacturer... The warranty service was notified about 3 weeks ago and practically no support...

I suppose 6 months. We need to check stability of material (on my printed Saab project rudder is little twisted, maybe by transport). I will try other printer and material, too in case of problems. Now I wait for printing of improved Saab model. If it will be OK from our point of view we will ask some modellers to build final kit. Now I'm working on 3D models of Lockheed A-1 Archangel, Convair Kingfish, Boeing B818, Avro 730 and Myasistchew M-25-1 and -2. All in scale 1/72. Hot candidate was Northrop N-176, too but I used wrong scanned sources and heavy rebuild will be needed.

I'm hoping faster, but in my end we have been cursing 3D System as my few months old printer is still waiting for replacement part (it has been offline for more than month.) Now with the holiday season coming all bets are off about repairing the machine.

offtopic but pretty cool and beautiful. The "smallest creation of the human form in history" (oct. 2014) printed in 3d by artist Jonty Hurwitz. Amazing what this technique feature is able to make! Hmm will there be a nanoscale Myasishchev? Just kidding... ;D

The clear one is done with ProJet 3510SD with Crystal material.
The project has been slower than anticipated as the printer was broken for a while.
