Another update here.

The 3D printer is working beautifully, and I just visited the foundry again this afternoon to show them one of the printed clamp halves to verify that it will work as planned. They were very excited about it and expect that it will work very well. Now I just need to get the remaining pieces printed out and assembled for the pattern.

I'm also headed out in a little bit to go check out a mill to bore the draft out of the internal diameter of the clamp halves. If all goes well, I'll be cleaning out a new spot for it in the garage this afternoon.

Which 3D printer did you go with?

I'm curious about your experience with the printer you chose and why also!

The printer I chose is the Series 1 from Type A Machines. One of the biggest reasons why is the accuracy people were getting with plastics like PLA mostly, but some are also printing with ABS. The second big reason was the build volume this machine is capable of which is 9"x9"x9". Third would be the price. I am continuously being blown away by what this thing is capable of. I have successfully printed some small objects with layer heights of 50 microns. They take a long time at that resolution, but end up looking great. I've been printing all of the pieces for the casting molds at 10 microns (0.1mm layer height) because I've found it seems to be the best balance between accuracy, print time, and the amount of post processing to clean up the parts. At 100 microns, the parts are taking about 10 hours each.

BTW, I am now the proud owner of a mill

Here's a couple of pics of a printed part, and one in the process.

I've printed a little over half of parts for the pattern board so far, as well as starting to lay out the pattern board with the parts as they come off of the printer. The only problem is that I've run out of PLA filament. They had some issues with getting my order shipped out in a timely manner, so with any luck I will be back on track Wednesday.

Finally found the time to finish drilling all of the holes in the pattern board today. The printer is still cranking the pieces out one after the other and is working beautifully. My best guess is that I should be done with all of the printing in roughly 3 days.

Nope, I'm not sold out. Still just taking orders for interest in the initial group buy run right now to help with getting accurate quotes. I have considered cutting it off here soon simply because there has been so much interest that I'm really backed up. This has been a really involved process and I really don't like that so many people are having to wait on me. I officially broke over 150 orders this week! Thanks everyone! I will probably be converting this thread over to an official group buy instead of just an interest thread here soon so that I can start taking payments to help fund this process when they go into sand casting.

Actually, yes! I just got back home from being at work forthe last 4-1/2 weeks and I intend to have the pattern board completely finished up next week so that I can get it down to the foundry for casting. As you can imagine I have a few honey-dos to catch up on this weekend before I can work on the pattern though.

Thanks again for everyone's patience.

If any of you guys/gals are going to be in Ouray, Co. for the Landrover National Rally this weekend, keep an eye out for my buddy in the green 110 with white doors. He currently has my prototype mounted in the back of his rig and would be happy to show it you you.

2-1/2 days of sanding, priming, sanding again, priming again, sanding again, painting, painting again, buffing, and finally waxing is done. Tomorrow... sand and paint the board that they will be mounted to and hopefully mount them.
