12 Days of Christmas PuzzlePalace style 2020. Third day
My beautiful lover is the father of home 3D printing. He bought his first many moons ago and spent a long time perfecting the art of 3D printing. He is the premier prototyper. When he left his life in California and came to Hong Kong to live with such a woman as I, he left behind his printers. He engaged the services of a 3D printing company to aid him in his continued puzzle printing. He used 3D Mart Hong Kong who had wonderful service. When we finally arrived in Boca Raton, he purchased an Ultimaker S5, the same as was used in HK. He has enjoyed printing many a puzzle on it.
The next machine we see (with my monkey on top) is a FormLabs 2 SLA printer known for its high resolution and weird method of printing from the bottom.
The final printer was purchased through kickstarter. After a scam I endured, I never expected to receive it but the Creality CR-6 SE is in the dormitory installed and ready to go. Filament is commonly available in the two standard diameters of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm and now he has two FDM machines to handle filaments of both sizes.
