Took a quick check back at the spec sheet for the ProJet 1500. Here's what it says in terms of size of parts/performance.
Max Build Size (XYZ) 6.75 x 9 x 8 in (171 x 228 x 203 mm) Native Resolution (xy) 1024 x 768 DPI Layer Thickness Standard Mode 0.004 in (102 μm) High speed Mode 0.006 in (152 μm) Vertical Build Speed Standard Mode 0.5 in/hour High speed Mode 0.8 in/hour (VisiJet® FTI-Zoom material only)
@jfrisbie: You are correct and thanks for pointing out my mistake. The vertical build speed is .8 inches per hour, not .08 inches an hour. The official spec sheet says that in high-speed mode, the unit prints at 0.8 in/hour using VisiJet FTI-Zoom material only.
I believe this is .8 inches per hour. As we run two of their older machines this would be slightly faster build rate than what we see. Although the build speed depends on the layer resolution that you choose. I find that going from .010 layer thickness to .007 adds about 40% to any given parts build time.
A middle school team from Rochester, Mich., has again nabbed the grand prize in the annual international Future City Competition, which drew students from 37 regions of the United States, as well as from England and China.
The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
