3D Printing - "It's all about design and quality output. Not how fast the printer can run."

DSC08095Red Box Test

I ran across a test block on Thingiverse. It is a SLA test model created by 3DSLA. I was looking for test items for my Wanhao D7. The picture to the right shows the tiny one in white plastic I printed on the WD7 at 50nm layer height. No clean up on either. They are exactly as-printed.

I wondered how the Cetus FDM printer would handle the test. I knew the original size was out of the question at .2mm (200nm) resolution so I scalled it up five times. The red box is about two inches square and two and three quarter inches tall.

Not too shabby a job for a FDM printer. It did take a long time. I sliced it in Simplify3D and imported it to the Cetus as a G-code file. Yep, G-code runs fine on the Cetus. The pictures tell the story.
