Disrupt It Yourself reviews the MAKEiT Pro-L

Recently Andrew “Distrupt It Yourself” Stott completed an extended test of a pre-production Pro-L test printer, see what he has to say about it here:

“Being a 3D printer with a large build volume, dual extruders, and being very accurate, means that this is a 3D printer that isn’t going to disappoint… I’ve never seen prints this good in my own personal experience, and I’ve always tried to demand the very best out of the 3D printers that I use”

The First Layer: Turntable Pt. 2, Advanced Print Settings

In Part 1 of the Turntable post, I showed details of how I modeled the turntable feet both for printable threads and for functional steel threads. Getting really exceptional final parts like you see above, requires careful balancing of the design and print settings together. Although it may take a bit longer to setup such precise prints, when you have a project that needs a professional finish it’s worth the effort. This is even more true with projects that require multiples of the same part like this one since you can easily reproduce the part once it’s properly set. So in this followup Part 2 post I’ll go over some of the tricks involved in getting the high quality results you see here.
