New 3 D Printer on the horizon…

web_Straight_bitsWell it has been over 5 years that I have had access to a 3D modeling package called SolidWorks and 3 years ago we had acquired a 3D printer that is used to create a solid plastic piece from the modeling software. Yes you draw the project piece then convert to 3D print file and create the model out of plastic. The only downside to these files and printers is the cost to make a model, approx. 20 bucks an cubic inch…not practical for woodworking.

Reason for this post…

The 3D printers are evolving into a printer for the home. I just received the email about the new 3D printer coming out this spring called Cube Obyssey…check it out at this link FYI: Cost of the printer is $1,300.00 and the plastic is $40.00 per cartridge with 10 colors to choose from…See where the Cube is traveling in the USA..

Now we can create models for the Router uses…

This is a great new look for the many uses of the router because now we can create 3D models for the Jigs and Fixtures at a reasonable price. The only thing we are missing is the 3D models of the Jigs and Fixtures. Now there is a method to use the 3D models to make the router more efficient and cost effective. This post is checking to see if anyone is currently drawing 3D models and using them in their woodworking projects?

Let me know what you think?

Please check out the new technology and then comment. If you are interested helping to create a series of jigs and fixture 3D models please comment with your email address and I will contact you directly. Please be advised that I will not post comment that want to help create the series of Jigs and Fixture models…

I will just publish the comments about the new technology…
