@Daniyal_Ali- Thanks, I agree that some users have difficulty soldering and assembling those 3D printers and I'm sure that's part of the reason more companies are offering them as finished units, like the Replicator2 and the Da Vinci1.0.
This is the right price range for a clean finished product (for me at least?). Clearly, this is a 1st gen model but it looks functional to make some real product.
Downside is the build envelope being small (6 inch cube, that's it?), but a disclaimer on output product quality is probably a sensible one. I hope that it doesn't clog up like the early inkjet printers of the 1990's?
What is the metal material it uses for deposition? I like the 100 micron accuracy, that's a big plus.
"They are not responsible for any fault in the kit builds because it can't guarantee the technical proficiency of its customers"
Nice share Cabe. If the idea was to provide a 3D printer that home hobbyists could assemble themselves, then the above sentences would definitely make them think twice. Most of the customers might not have a technical background and could mess up the kit builds. They should make it a bit more user friendly so that technically unskilled customers could also buy the kits without any worries. In the present scenario, the fully assembled kits would be the preference of most customers, as it involves some guarantee.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
