Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Form 3L Resin 3D Printer Station!

Adam sets up a new machine in the cave: a Formlabs Form 3L that’s his first workshop 3D printer! To get it up and running, he builds a cart for the printer to live on with storage and workspace for processing the resin prints that come out of his large formfactor machine. And after running his first test print, Adam reveals his plans for putting the Form 3L through it paces with a prop and costume project he’s working on this Spring!

  1. Norm, if you guys are doing 3D prints again, please bring back “The Latest Thing” aka the MakerBot Mystery Build Theme for us old-timers. At least once!
    (Let me know if you need help finding it.)
    Thanks!

  2. Must be nice to have an US $11,000 printer ‘sent to you’ 🙂 Not really a real wold solution for the vast majority of folks. You folks lost touch ages ago.

  3. I made a similar comment on YouTube, but in case it wasn’t seen, I think Adam should consider a one-day build where he modifies the cart he made for the 3D printer to include shock absorbers/dampening. By his own theory, he thinks the “beads” he made for the crown build were affected by simply walking past the printer while it was working. Living near so many fault lines, I think such an enhancement to the 3D printer cart would be worthwhile as well as fun. Best wishes, regardless.
