The Moment 3d printer is the latest entry into the 3D printing market. This Korean made printer focuses on ultra high quality prints and build.
The Moment is a FFF gantry-style printer. It has an aluminum double-walled body and all the interior components are made of aluminum, except the single drive belt (it uses two stepper motors and one continuous belt loop to drove BOTH the X and Y axis), the two cooling fans (which are plastic), and the build plate surface (which is glass). It uses a single solid metal extruder and hotend and a heated glass build plate for use with either PLA or ABS. The exterior size of the machine is 300mm x 360mm x 348mm and has an interior build area of 145mm x 145mm x 160mm. It supports either Windows or Mac OS systems, uses either USB or SD card file loading, and prints at a maximum resolution of 50 microns.
In addition to all the hardware features, Moment also includes a user’s license for a “Simplify3D” software package for their customers. I have not yet played with this software, but the website does give a lot of information which seems to be a solid “all-in-one” package with a short video explaining the product pretty well.
