I'm a senior software architect and have been looking at the 3D printing world for several years. I got my first 3D printer, the Rostock MAX, at the beginning of 2013 as a kit and assembled it and have great success at printing a variety of things. It's a delta style printer, with a EZstruder with a bowden tube running to the hot end. It also has an ONYX heated build platform. I've upgraded the delta arms on the printer to carbon fiber rods with ball joints, and the accuracy of the printer is much better than it used to be. The dimensions it can print aren't actually square as most printers are, but there's not an option to enter that data on this site. The actual build platform is a 279mm circle, and can print up to ~279mm tall.
I've created a couple of parts to enhance the capabilities of my Rostock MAX that I've designed and printed myself. My favorite still is the Yoda print, I actually printed it at 0.15mm layer heights... That one ended up going to the wife though since she's a huge Yoda fan!
The nozzle I primarily use is a 0.4mm in a Kraken from E3D online. The highest resolution I have printed so far is 0.08mm with a 0.5mm nozzle... Just contact me and we can discuss any printing needs you have.
I've recently added a Sherline CNC Milling machine & CNC Lathe to my shop, so my available services will also be available in all metal types (aluminum, brass, bronze, steel, titanium, etc) for more traditional subtractive manufacturing as I become more comfortable using them!
