I wanted to give a quick update on the status of the new ATOM 3D printer and the TARS model. As of today I’m running a low resolution test print of TARS. This is not only to test the new printer but also test the new TARS 3D model. To add yet another new element, I’m using PLA filament for the first time instead of ABS. I was never able to use PLA with my first 3D printer with any success. So far it looks promising on all fronts.
After examining the print I will make needed adjustments to the model and/or the printer. I will work hard to have a finished version sometime in the next 2 weeks. In the meantime I will be auctioning off these test prints on eBay to generate some funds to keep this project viable.
