I’ve been playing with the CubeX and the Cerberus 3D 250 for a while and decided to take on a little project with Cerberus 3D’s Gigante deltabot printer.
I designed a hexagonal bin with swirling sections around the outside using Geomagic. I used the “shell” command, thinking it would give me a relatively slim container with the swirl embedded on the sides.
I still have a lot to learn about using CAD, translating through Kisslicer and into the printer …..

Jacob Graber, adjusting the Cerberus 250 printer in Kevin Caron’s office
In jumping back and forth with three different 3D printers – yeah, an embarrassment of riches – I have had to learn and remember each 3D printer’s idiosyncrasies.
Yes, there are more similarities between the Cerberus 3D’s two deltabot style printers, the 250 (right), which sits on a desktop, and my Gigante, which is 8 feet tall and can print up to 4-1/2 feet tall, but they each also have their own preferences.
(Yes, I think they’re alive, but that’s another post ….)
One advantage of having different 3D printers, though, is that I learn from them, or at least I should ….
