Important Colour Choices

It is with great joy that I can let you know that we have finally ordered our Ultimaker 3D printer. It could take some time to materialise so in the mean time I have some very very important colour choices to make!

Which colour do I paint the printer..

Here are some examples of how they look –

This is the printer as it comes, flat and ready to assemble.

I could paint it green?

Or Turquoise!?

This Blue looks pretty awesome however!

Now, how about some lighting!! I’m thinking a few wee LEDs in there and we’ll be ready to get down to some seriously cool printing.

Can’t wait!

    Perhaps a thermochromic paint job would be appropriate!

    I read that the Ultimaker has a build area of 210x210x220mm. I think that’s enough to make shuttles for our narrow looms. I am curious, very curious indeed.

    We should have a chat about this Andrew. We also need to speak about the hack space! L
