Desktop Factory Test Sample Video!


BadBrad is back at it, and this time he's somehow managed to infiltrate the secret Desktop Factory laboratories to try out the highly anticipated, world's first sub-USD$5,000 3D printer.

The object he chose to print was an iPhone case, and as you'll see in the video, it's a little bit rough around the edges. But it is definitely a 3D printed object. Brad explains what he learned about the printer from Desktop Factory's CEO Cathy Lewis. Among his findings:

  • The sample object is close to the final minimum thickness (0.08") of the device's capability
  • Some flexibility in the material is present
  • A few rough area on certain portions of the model
  • The part was torch-braised to smooth out the rough surface

Well done, Brad!
