Hi All. Hope I can peek the brains of some of you wizards!
I am looking to buy a 3D printer on the market. I had checked out the usual suspects from MakerBot. But I found this (Form1+) stereo lithography machine that I like. Since I am more interested in higher resolution enclosure prototyping and speed than cost (since it doesn’t seem so outrageous different from the makerbot), it seems really good!, but I have no experience in this field and don’t want to make a bad decision!. Here’s the machine:
FormLabs Form 1+ | http://formlabs.com
What do you think? Should I get this or should I go to the classic makerbot’s newer models?
As for software… I need to learn a software app for designing enclosures and industrial design. I like the solidworks app, But I am on mac, and I don’t like the idea of changing OS or having to virtualize on such a high end app… Do you have a good recommendation? Or experience with solidworks in the mac virtualized?
Any help appreciated!
Sorry for the off topic!
