  1. I've spent a week learning fusion 360 and must say, I really like it. I have almost finished my first drawing. I've watched a few youtube tutorials and taken it from there. I had an email last week about changes to the free version and that some features were being removed. https://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/blog/changes-to-fusion-360-for-personal-use/ As a new user of Fusion 360, the biggest issue as a result of the change to me will be to only have 10 active documents at one time but I can get around this by archiving projects that I'm not working on. Other restrictions seem to apply to not being able to exporting certain file types and more advanced CAM stuff which doesn't really affect me at the moment so I'm going to continue using it but I thought I'd ask if other users of Fusion who are using it for 3D printing are going to be affected as well? Regards, Mark
  2. Just looking on the Anycubic Site and the sale seems to have been extended. They also have the new printers available for pre-order in October Photon Mono - $209 Photon Mono SE - $349 Photon Mono x - $589 Just been comparing the specs below copied from the Anycubic website and I'm now considering the Photon Mono as a starter 3D Printer. Technical Specifications System : ANYCUBIC Photon Mono X ANYCUBIC Photon Mono SE ANYCUBIC Photon Mono Operation : 3.5 inch Touch Screen 3.5 inch Touch Screen 2.8 inch Touch Screen Software : ANYCUBIC Photon workshop ANYCUBIC Photon workshop ANYCUBIC Photon workshop Connectivity : USB USB USB Technology: LCD-based SLA LCD-based SLA LCD-based SLA Light-source: high-quality filament(wavelength 405nm) high-quality filament(wavelength 405nm) high-quality filament(wavelength 405nm) XY Res.: 0.050mm 3840*2400(4K) 0.051mm 2560*1620(2K 0.051mm 2560*1620(2K)dd> Z Axis Res.: 0.01mm 0.01mm 0.01mm Layer Res.: 0.01-0.15mm 0.01 ~ 0.15mm 0.01 ~ 0.15mm Printing Speed: MAX 60mm/h MAX 80mm/h MAX 50mm/h Rated Power: 120W 55W 45W Printer Size : 270mm(L)*290mm(W)*475mm(H) 220mm(L)*200mm(W)*400mm(H) 227mm(L)*222mm(W)*383mm(H) Build Volume: 192mm(L)*120mm(W)*245mm(H) 130mm(L)*78mm(W)*160mm(H) 130mm(L)*80mm(W)*165mm(H) Material: 405nm UV Resin 405nm UV Resin 405nm UV Resin Net Weight: ~10.75kg ~8.2kg ~4.5kg A lot of the things I want to build at the moment are small so paying almost 3x the price for the larger printer is something I think I might be able to live without. The mono SE has a similar spec but more robust looking case and larger touch screen. The main advantage of the Mono SE appears to be the substaintial increase in print time over the Mono. is that extra 3cm per hour worth $140? I'm guessing it is if you're doing something on a commercial scale it is but I might be able to live with the slower speed which is still over twice as fast as the standard Photon. Cheers, Mark
  3. Thanks for the information here, it's really useful. When there was talk of screens on here, I thought it was the touch screen to operate the printer that was being discussed so thought the quality wouldn't be a big deal but now I realise that the screen is used for the actual printing so I can see how a 4k screen would be benificial. I think that the information in this thread is making me come to the conclusion that if I can get a photon as part of the deal, I'll get one but as I won't be able to print what I want until I've learned the software and designed the items I want to print and this will take time so I can potentially hang on until I'm getting ready to do this then see what is out there once I'm at this stage. If the Saturn is released soon then that would give me a bigger print area. However, I think at the current price, the wash and cure machine sure sounds like it's worth purchasing. Cheers, Mark
  4. I think that was going to be my next question, I was drawn to the Photon because of the offer mentioned here. I was wondering which other manufacturers were worth looking at if I don't get a photon? I imagine that 3D printing is developing at pace and new printers will offer better printers at lower prices so it's a question of when to jump in although I feel that the quality and price now seem to me making it a more viable option than when I was looking a few years ago.
  5. I was planning to order yesterday and noticed it is indeed now sold out. As the offer has been extended a few days, I’m hoping they will get more in stock. However it got me thinking. Are the extra features of the photon S worth the price difference over the Photon? Cheers, Mark
  6. That's great news, thanks for the heads up. It looks like I'll get one after all. Cheers, Mark
  7. I'm on the verge of buying one of these but looks like I've missed out as well because the offer is now only available in the US. I might have to send them an email and see if they can do anything. If not, I'll see what's available in the future as I'm not in an immediate rush.
  8. My SU-27b also had the updated parts that were inspired by the Zactoman corrected parts. Just need to get round to building it.

    I ordered 4 kits from MBK on Friday when they were announced and they arrived today which is good going when you consider what's going on at the moment.
  10. This build is really useful so far. I must admit I'm not really impressed with the CMK accessories either as they were very expensive and don't fit the kit very well. See this thread I created a while ago for the short bomb bay! I still haven't got round to correcting it yet! I have used the information on the missing tail fin intake and am quite pleased how it turned out so I'm learning things from this thread. Keep the updates coming and thanks again for sharing, Mark
  11. Hi Amos, Really enjoying the corrections you're making to this one and I'm taking notes as I have one of these. Did you use CMK intakes on yours? I have them but think the kit ones seem to fit better. Regards, Mark
  12. Sad to hear this as it is my favourite show due to the atmosphere but understandable in the circumstances. Looking forward to 2021. Due to increased modelling time due to lockdown the club displays and competition area should be something to behold next year.
  13. Thanks for the info on the boxes Red, The MK.8 comes with the port side boxes and the empty centre rack which should be easy to copy. It will save me a task not fitting the Sea Skua boxes but when I come round to doing my MK.8 I might make some boxes for that. Those measurements will come in handy for when I correct the tail length. Mark
  14. Great looking Fokker. Not the easiest kit to build since we've been spoiled with Wingnuts but you've done a great job. Thanks for sharing, Mark
