Open Letter to Tiertime Cetus2
As everyone can see on this blog, I am an actual user of an early prototype of the Cetus2 dual filament single nozzle 3D printer. I am simply lucky and grateful to have an opportunity to show it to readers of this blog.
I do NOT represent Tiertime and the Cetus2 (and UPStudio3 (UPS3)) teams in any official way, shape, or form. I simply show what I can make with the Cetus2 I won in a New Year’s Resolution writing competition.
I do not have two machines (yet) but I am a KickStarter investor the same as everyone else on the KS forum. I hope to have two in the future...
Here is a seven piece project (Tea Box). Three main parts - the box, the lettered top plate, the top rim, and four separate feet.
The big part, the box, reported a 24 hour print time on the Cetus2 UPStudio3 (UPS3) slicer. Actual run time was a bit over 22 hours.
The lettered top plate was a five hour print. The rim and four feet were another 4.5 hours.
Total printing time was almost 32 hours.
Cetus2 gets used just about every day. For every design that is not one single color. I have posted a few more pix here.
What I want to discuss is - large single color prints.
CETUS2 Grass Bowl
I created a project candy bowl similar to this several years ago. But it had vertical sides and smaller grass blades. I also used a different multi color FDM printer than CETUS2 to produce them. This is an update!
Cetus2 KickStarter recently released new pictures showing the reconfiguration of the design back towards the original conception. Cetus2 is back to the look of the early release version I am privileged to own here at KautzCraft. In those CETUS2 pictures I notiiced the brand and color of the two spools of filament on the display machine. They are eSUN Satin PLA, purple and yellow.
