Evolution of a Blog

This blog has evolved as I have as a maker. It starts at the beginning of my journey where I began to re-tread my tires in the useful lore of micro electronics and the open-source software that can drive them. While building solutions around micro-electronics are still an occasional topic my more recent focus has been on the 3D Printing side of making.

Summary of Resolution Differences for Tank Printing

Sherman V's printed at 0.15 and 0.1mm layer height (respectively) using a normal 0.4mm nozzle

Tiger II printed at a very, very high resolution using a 0.25mm nozzle and a layer height of 0.08mm.

The above print took 13:10 Hours!

For a normal nozzle and at different resolutions this would be:
9:47 for 0.08mm
7:59 for 0.1mm
5:55 for 0.15mm

This is pulled from another post earlier on this blog ... Here are the test prints that more clearly show the differences in resolution (layer height).
