Telemetry3D 2.0

It has been a long time since our last blog post and for good reason! The Telemetry3D workshop has been working hard for our clients night and day. We are pleased to announce that the result of this hard work is directly translating into new capabilities for our business.

In December 2016 we acquired a Form2 ; a UV laser resin SLA printer. This machine is absolutely incredible in terms of the detail and complexity of models it can create. There are a variety of materials available for it; from the standard resins; to simulated ABS, polypropylene, flexible resins, high temperature resins, castable resins, Dental resins, and even ceramic resins. 

Because it uses a laser to cure a liquid the XY resolution is limited only by the point size of the laser. The Form2 can print down to 25micron layers; but for our applications we usually stick with 100micron or 50micron for extreme detail.

While we can't show you images of most of our clients models (due to NDA's) we have finally had some down time on the Form2 to produce some models for ourselves. We have been enjoying printing from the MyMiniFactory: Scan the World Collection.

Due to increased demand from our clients we ended up having to acquire a total of four Form2 3D printers. We plan to leverage our redundant manufacturing capacity to offer the fastest, lowest priced; SLA printing service . It sounds ambitious; but shouldn't all ambitions be ambitious?

 

Over the next few days we will be releasing SLA printed + painted versions of the SkullWars and BoneHeads series by 3DKitBash on our Etsy Store!

End of Summer Recap

It has been several months since I've had time to update our website, and for good reason!

Telemetry3D has been going through continuous growth over the spring and summer of 2016. In the late spring we finished building two 12" Pegasus printers from MakerFarm. These have quickly become workhorses and the print quality off these new machines is even better than our i3v's.

We now operate five FDM 3D printers, and lately they have all been running around the clock fulfilling orders and contracts. We are already planning to add two more Pegasus printers in October if demand keeps pace.

We are learning, and improving our techniques on nearly a daily basis, which has helped us make and retain some fantastic clients. Our services have been contracted by the automotive industry, artists, entrepreneurs, and the general public.

Our prints get around! We've worked with clients from New York to San Diego and our prints have been used for several Kickstarter campaigns, Cosplay at DragonCon, the WMU Formula SAE, and much more.

During this last quarter of 2016 we plan to build two more 12" Pegasus printers and build a proper workshop. Our work space is very cramped right now, fitting 5 printers, 50 spools of filament, innumerable tools and other supplies into a tiny 80 Square Feet.

We are building a proper work space with more room and will include more rigorous environmental controls. The new work space will improve efficiency and consistency of our printing service beyond our current high standards.
