wow, that would be big enough.
so scap the the idea of a fdm?
resin over fdm?
Depends what you want to do. Resins are getting pretty sophisticated now so most likely I would stick with resin.

FWIW people are now mixing resins to get the properties they want. Maybe something worth looking into.

printed 2 halves with the hook slot, then glued the 2 halves togeather,
Did some threaded floating inserts some time ago. Also printed in two halves, put in the threaded insert and then solvent-welded the two halves together using acetone (printed in ABS).

I made another toolpost indicator holder today.

I use my edge tech toolpost indicator all the time to dial parts in my 4 jaw chuck, but till now have to use a magnetic base to indicate the face.

This one works for measuring the face of parts. I made the dovetailed part from a scrap of 316 stainless, and 3d printed the indicator mount.

Finally finished my first real 3D modeling project (I have done a few modifications or embossing of logos on stuff using Fusion 360, but couldn't get further than that before). Took about a weekend to get the initial design done, then a few hours over a week or two along with printing prototypes to get it the way I wanted to. I needed a way to get a cooling fan to be installed in a small computer tower for an AI/Render graphics card that has no cooling itself. Been running it for a week and a half with good success. I have posted it to Printables to get feedback and just to see if it is useful for anyone else. Tesla M40 Fan Blower Adapter

I installed a dash-cam in the wife's jeep some time ago and she didn’t like the cable hanging down. I made some of these clips to help with cable management. It was a success!JC-2 Full b.jpg20230211_152634.jpg20230211_144655.jpg
