One print. Four materials. Two colours of PLA. Nylon bushings. Scaffold soluble support. Zero human labour. #Toolchanging @RichRap3D @toms3dp @lulzbot3D @MattStultz @josefprusa pic.twitter.com/fcFzulqJlS

That looks like a beast! I can’t wait to see it. 4 extruders and 4 materials is awesome, I gotta see how they are doing the nozzle leveling.
I wonder how the heck they are getting it there, I am going to have a hard time getting my little machine out there.February 22, 2018 at 3:48 pm #53576
Do you have a costco by you? Last time I was there they had Pelican clones that I think could fit a mp3dp in it.February 22, 2018 at 3:53 pm #53577
I’ll head down there and check. I figure I can bring a small CNC in a few pieces, and stop at Menards and get a base board if I really need one. Have it do some drawing, kinda boring but quiet and clean, maybe some sticker cutting?
Knowing these guys are bringing there big guns, Jeez I need to step it up. Time is getting to near to show a new version, but maybe the PID controller will be working by then?February 24, 2018 at 9:04 am #53625
Man that seems like a pain in the butt to set up. But I like it. Wonder how much they will try to sell that for? I don’t think their last printer was a success.February 24, 2018 at 9:12 am #53627
Shoot even as a proof of concept if someone else develops it, they will sell 4 times as many hotends!February 24, 2018 at 9:19 am #53628
It is the best 4 color set up I’ve seen yet. The other options use big waste blocks.February 25, 2018 at 6:59 am #53655

It was a huge success. They hit $400, 000 on kickstarter. They open sourced it to thingiverse after that.March 21, 2018 at 9:51 am #55848March 21, 2018 at 10:29 am #55851
Heh, I just posted that link in the mrrf thread. Couldn’t remember where I posted the original link. 🙄
Okay, my post disappeared. Weird.March 21, 2018 at 11:33 am #55866
Its awesome, but at a possible 2 grand.. and im confused what that money actually gets. Is it the complete frame? Or just the rails and changing system.March 21, 2018 at 12:28 pm #55875
From what I can tell, all the mechanicals, you add the electronics yourself. We’ll probably find out this weekend. I’ll definitely be taking pictures of it.March 25, 2018 at 7:38 am #56161
I failed… Was so crowded around it all day that I didn’t get any pictures.March 25, 2018 at 8:58 am #56169
Oh well, did you get any info on prusa’s new MMU?March 25, 2018 at 9:45 am #56170
Nope. E3d, Prusia, and SeeMeCnC were all together in one end of the building, and it was crazy over there. I did see something pretty neat about e3d’s new printer system though. When if finishes a layer, the hot end goes over to the side and does a really fast purge, faster than the hot end can melt the filament, then it does a quick retract which pretty much pulls all the plastic out of the hot end, then it does a wipe over a brass brush, and parks the head and swaps out the hot end. Doing this keeps it from drooling all over the back of the printer. Pretty slick setup.
