Finally something worth showing

Postby Charles Xavier » Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:26 am

So I'm running one of Jetguy's Ultimate Thing-O-Matics (UTOM for short). The frame is basically a TAM S1, which is why I frequent these forums. I've been tweaking my PLA printing for a couple weeks now (without a fan; I really need to install one), and I thought this would be a nice benchmark as well as a gift.

It's part of fantasygraph's series, I like the model quite a bit. Need to fix some underextrusion and retraction problems, but I'm coming along nicely. 0.15mm layer height, 40mm/s.

Nice model! Did you make this or acquire it? Looks like Zbrush with those folds...hmm tasty.



Looks like Sky Blue... TAM has it in stock right now... we nabbed some a few days ago!

Thanks guys! I was worried this was going to turn into a "If you don't have anything nice to say" situation!

The filament is powder blue from Toybuilder Labs. It is VERY pretty. The model is one of fantasygraph's, you can find it here:

Here are the pictures Jetguy took before sending it to me. I think you'll find it's not THAT Frankenstein (well maybe the extruder is a bit, it's a short Mk6). Let me know if you have any questions. I'm actually VERY interested to hear how different it really is from a stock TAM, since I've never actually handled one.

Yep, single Y motor! Jetguy is a huge proponent of this set-up, he discusses some of the reasons why in this thread.

I have nothing but good things to say about his work. What you see is a solid, professional-looking 3D printer that works. It has the best of the TAM design, runs Sailfish, and came with built-in LCD/SD and a HBP.

Looks really nice, but anything but blue, I say.
