Thanks all for the reactions.
I’m surprised to receive these reactions on my question on my first day on 3D Hubs.
First at all, I want to clear out one important thing… I really need this Objet30 Pro for my professional life.
I have my own management company and do I deliver technical consulting for companies as Bosch, Procter & Gamble, Deufol,… From my management company do I run a company with 35 employers and do we have all type of machines as laser- and plasma cutters, bending,…
In my backyard do I have a nice building from 75m² that my management company rent from myself (these situation is possible in Belgium). In this place do I make prototypes a specially for P & G. I have standing there a CO2 100Watt lasercutter (work surface 600x900mm), D-Router (work surface 600x900mm), cutting machine from Summa, everything for working with acrylate (bending and polish machine, paint dispenser),… and off course the Objet30 Pro.
Every week do I have several jobs for the Objet30 Pro and do these companies pay with pleasure the higher price for non serial work or prototyping. If these companies need serial work, do I work together with a company that print in SLS (the start-up is higher , but the the price is around 10 times cheaper when you work with series).
I almost bought a Fortus 380mc, but also then is the price to high if you work with series).
By the way, I bought the Objet30 Pro (600 running hours) with a Quill Vogue washing Station and a lot of materials from a company in Suisse with financial problems for 14.000€. I saw the invoice from a year before from 54.000€.
So the point of my question was, if I see something nice on Thingiverse, Grabcad, Pinshape,… and I print it, I realize (to late sometime) that a gadget can cost between 5 and 80€. Actually does not matter, because the company pays everything. But the businessman in me fight with it…
So if there is a way to pay less for the materials, will I print more gadgets for my daughter from almost 2 years.
For this reason did I bought a Leapfrog Xeed. So that I hopefully can print gadget for her in the future.
I received this printer last Friday and was it yesterday a real fight to print something stupid small. And then you realize more the different in prices for the 3D-printers or the materials.
More important, was my second question:
What’s the best way after removing the support, to manipulate the surface?
What are the experiences of other users from Polyjet?
When I bought the Objet30 Pro, where there samples with the printer with a smooth surface, also the Vero clear.
For example, how can I give the printed object in annex, a smooth surface or a transparent view?
I hope everyone understands my reaction, because my English is not so good.
