Hey all, my company has purchased a 3d printer, and it's been pumping out parts for model testing like crazy. They asked me to take some photos to go on our quarterly newsletter. Here's a few of my favourites plus a shot of the setup. Any critique is welcome!

That's very cool! My company has been talking about buying one too, although not too seriously yet. The quality of the parts looks rather good. How large can you print?

Depends on the size of the printer, each has its maximum. Of course the bigger the print bed, the bigger the price. Ours is about 1 ft by 2 ft, which is a little small, but if we want something bigger, we print it in parts and make little connectors so it can be assembled like legos secured with epoxy :-)

That's awesome! I wonder what that 3D printer will be used for, I find them amazing :)
