Ultimaker vs. Cube X Duo


#1

Has anyone used either the Ultimaker 3d printer from DIY or CubeX
Duo 3d printer or Trio from Cubify?


#2

Greetings, From what I understand, these are both low resolution
machines. You’ll need a minimum (preferably better than) a 0.04 mm
resolution, if you’re looking to make jewelry models. Also, the
materials used seldom burn out correctly. The technology for
inexpensive, high resolution 3D printers for casting are not
available yet in the few thousand dollarrange. Soon… Kennon

These hobby printers are little more than hot glue guns with servos.
They do not have the resolution to create jewelry nor do they use
castable material. The minimum machine for jewelry RP would be the
Form1, B9 or Asiga assuming you can get them to ship one and are not
sued out of existence for patent violations and you would still have
the lack of castable material.

Where does that leave you? The least expensive machine with jewelry
resolution would be something like the envisionTEC Prefectory Micro.
It’s 10 times the price of the Ultimaker for a reason.

I didn’t that either of these models would be good for jewlery making
but soeone else tried to convince me otherwise. Two models I am
considering are Rio Grand’s Digital Wax Rapid Prototyping and Taig
DSLS 3000CNC. Any thoughts would be appreiciated.

Where I get CAD done they use Solidscape machines, pretty awesome
output.

Don’t know anything about the other machines. 16 microns is very
nice.
