This was a personal project that got out of hand
I've been active in spectroscopy for a while with a DADOS and more recently (two years ago) got interested in 3D printing. So I decided to combine the two.
I’m using a Felix Pro 2 printer at the moment because I wanted a more professional printer. Nice bonus is that the company building these printers is situated only a 10 minute drive from my home town. So if there are technical issues, they can be quickly resolved. But you could also buy a much cheaper but still very good printer for less (e.g. CR-10).
I’m printing mostly in ASA at the moment.
3D printing has it's limitations of course but that hasn’t stop me from trying. It’s just a lot of fun and it has learned me a lot.
