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.
Freebooting everything! Tom’s whole website got copied and translated to French by an Affiliate Portal. One of Stefan’s videos was re-uploaded by an Instagram channel as well as shots from his videos were taken to advertise threaded inserts on Amazon. Both talk about their way to appeal and defend themselves against those cases and correct a couple of things from a recent episode. They further discuss the eco-friendliness of PLA and a recent news article where the German website Heise found a trojan in the SD card files that can be downloaded on Crealitys website. Questions cover SLS printing with PLA and PETG powder, thermo-mechanical simulation of FDM 3D prints, and a set of rules for the 10 minutes 3D Benchy challenge.
In this episode, Stefan talks about his VORON 0 build he started right after the last podcast episode on his hunt for a 10 minutes Benchy. The news cover a lot of recent 3D printers and printing technologies including the current Plybot Kickstarter, Formlabs finally releasing the Fuse 1, electrochemical metal 3D printing, and a 4th axis for the Prusa that tries to save on support structure. Both shortly discuss the things that recently happened around Gamestonks and also the Bernie Sanders meme. The questions cover how deep UV light penetrates resin, closed-loop stepper drivers, and our new Podcast setup.
