Anker Make M5 & BCM3Ds novel resin printing method

This episode starts with a quick update on Tom’s new studio as well as the office space Stefan has an eye on. Next, Stefan quickly tells the story of how All3D has been using content from a ton of creators without their permission over the last years and how they want to change their business practice now. BCN3D formally known for their dual-head FDM machines are getting into the market of resin 3D printing but with a real twist, which will allow using higher performance resins and even multi-material printing. Prusa has done a lifecycle analysis of their new recycled materials they are offering and Tom and Stefan talk about “real” recycled 3D printing filaments from the German Start-Ups RecyclingFabrik and QiTech. Then there is an update on the Prusa XL which will stick to regular and open-source nozzles in stark contrast to E3Ds REVO. The last topic covers the just-started Kickstarter of the Anker make M5 and if it might be worth the $759 MSRP. In the question section, Martin asks if Copper would have advantages over a Brass volcano adapter.

Simplify3D V5 “confirmed” & REVO problems

The first topic of this episode covers a controversial article where the author “has the feeling” that the release of S3D V5 might not be far away though there is very little substance to that claim. More substantial news is that Anker, the power bank and electronics accessories maker, will get into the 3D printer market and will launch their first machine on Kickstarter soon. Next, Tom and Stefan cover 3D printable accessories for a new Ford truck and the Steam Deck, for which Valve recently released the CAD files. Next Stefan talks about an issue he recently had with his E3D REVO review unit and Tom discusses his Form 3 review machine that turned out to be an unreleased Form 3+ which he didn’t know about. Stefan quickly gives an update about the “killed” stepper driver. Questions cover 3D printer recommendations, especially pre-built core XY, and what happens to additives and pigments when you compost plastics.
