Tribot

Postby Anon1121 » Tue Mar 03, 2015 8:31 pm

I am quite new here; I was redirected from the Google-search of "Amateur CNC operators" - as I was seeking to find like-minded people. So I just snug in, created a profile and thought I'd share something with you magnificent people. But let me stop being sentimental and get to what I needed to say.
Over the past years, there have been a number of machines released to the market that combine 3D printing, CNC and automated processes such as pick and plot. These machines include the FABtotum, ZeGo and Zmurph. These machines are meant for desktops, more specifically 3D printers with additional functions through exchanging extruders.

I am a proud owner of a Tribot machine - you can ask me anything about it.

I have great respect of the people who still have the work ethic to do manual labor and still have the skills to use technology to help them through it. What is the general Description, and what does it do? :?: :?: :?:
Why procrastinate today? When you can do it tomorrow!

With pleasure, Marks...Basically, TriBot machine is one of those special kinds of machines that combine CNC, 3D printing and molding under one functionality. If it were a person, we'd say that it is an all-rounded individual. The machine can to produce detailed 3D prototype from a wide range of materials including PVC, Polyethylene, Polypropylene while maintaining the strength required for manual milling. The print head and the extruder can go up to 400 Celsius during normal operation.

When to use 3D printer, when to use CNC router? Still at crossroads… Please help!!!

3D printers have received lots of attention since their introduction. Its ability to self-replicate by creating own parts is the main area of focus. CNC machines are automated and can work more efficiently. Are you still wondering whether to go for 3D or CNC machines? Go for printers, is all I would say. I am one of the strongest advocate of this tech, but people from certain quarters are still having doubts about it. I would like to have some closure on the topic. Please let me know what you recommend. :D
