Hi
First I believe it is legitimate to ask for offers. are there any for Machines? I saw this Year there was a on Black Friday an.

So back to the main Question. I want print some variouse  thinks.  Mostly Spares for my Pc and my upcoming Tablet.
I want to print a Case for a Custom PCB for the Tablet who fit some USB Dongle inside and is Watertide.

Maybe printing my own Model Train stuff. Well when  I see the "Original Prusa SL1 3D printer + Curing and Washing Machine BUNDLE" for 2100€ well... Its not by Budget right now. So how rugged prints from the i3 MK3S can get?
I saw many Videos where People test Various Materials. In my Case it should be Watertide casing.
Thanks

Creating watertight casings even for industrial products is very difficult. Splash proof not so hard but properly watertight I think you will struggle with any printer, Sla or fdm. Seals, special waterproof connectors Etc, tolerances all add up to a difficult process.

wat... Thats  why the are going so expensive:

Is there a good way to make the layers more stick together maybe with chemicals?
How about printing some Parts like Plugs into object? I would say the major problem is the size of the nozzle.

I am also hoping for an offer/sale and ready to buy as soon as there is one.  I wasn't able to get an MK3S during the awesome Black Friday sale and I've been hopeful there might be a similar deal in the future (even if it's just an offer for free shipping).  Hopefully I don't have to wait for the next Black Friday.  That is too long to wait.  🙂

You can make 3d prints hold water using an 3d-printing epoxy such as XTC-3d.

However, being able to 3d print a case that will hold out water under pressure is going to be hard to do.
