Many people say 3d printing is only suitable for 1 off prototype things, because it is so slow....I agree, but what if..... you can make it 8 times faster....? But that can not be done? Well, it have been done....!!! Look at the videos over at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fouche-Chocolates/217306118448036 Is that the same Fouche? ;-) O, yes, it is! And that machine have been running for 19 years now.........!!!! 3D Printed chocolates have been done for 19 yeas..!!!! So printing 8 lawnmowers at the same time? Not to laugh at any more!

At the moment the stoneguard is 6mm thick ABS. After a lot of mowing, no stone have left a visible mark on the inside of that guard yet…. I will keep on inspecting it, as soon as I find a stone damage mark that looks severe, I will change to 9mm, or 12mm…..or 21mm for that matter. That is how development work is done on such a new product

This lawn mower will be tested until it fails. I will inspect the failure mode, make design modifications to the CAD file, and print the next one​. That will also be tested to destruction... and modifications will be made....and reprinted.... That is the way of product development! The first technology demonstrator is EXPECTED to fail.... If you don't know that, Please don't knock my lawn mower down ! And all the updates WILL be posted here... ;-)

turnerb, I assume you are a Mechanical Engineer with years and years of design experience then....

Note: All construction workers, please replace your ABS hard hats with metal hard hats..... A certain EldRick think you might come to harm......
