    Rounded mud house model

    Version 1.0

    970 downloads

    This was one of my first 3D prints. I used a mud house model I designed in Blender long long time ago for a friend (Meltingman) for the image above. This design is freely inspired by the Musgum mud houses.

    Playmobil motorbike tire

    Version 1.0

    911 downloads

    This is a simple replacement tire for my son's playmobil motorbike. I told him many time to stop removing the tires... of course he lost one of them. "No problem dad ! You can print me a new one, and in white please."

    Post your latest print!

    Nice that the light comes through. Did you print it with a shell thickness of 1? I noticed with some tests that the light passing through is not proportional to the thickness. More or less, up to 1.2mm (with the white blueish colorfabb) the light passes, with more thickness it's almost stopped. So the parts letting the light passing are here 0.8mm thick, the other ones 2mm thick.

    I forgot to post a lot of prints lately, but I like this one so here is a lamp shade: More details here: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/prints/5051-wireframe-lamp-shade

    Wireframe Lamp Shade

    Version 1.0

    1,226 downloads

    I started this lamp shade with the general shape in mind an the wish to play with thickness for letting the light draw things on it. I wanted the light to make it look different. While playing around in Blender I was hesitating between sharp edges to make the polygons realy visible, or smooth the edges to make them less obvious. The the idea arrived to make it smooth an let the light draw the edges. I really like the roughness of the light passing through, making the layers and defects really visible, giving imperfections that makes it look like a crafted object and not a printed one.

    Faceted cathedral model

    Version 1.0

    860 downloads

    An experiment with Blender soft bodies to use Gaudi's technique to automatically design the optimal shape of a roof. The model has been then decimated to have a more contemporary look compared to the original one here: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/prints/4916-smooth-cathedral-model More info here:

    Icosphere necklace

    Version 1.0

    904 downloads

    The shape is very simple, an icosphere, but the sanding and the surface of the raw bronzefill make it very beautifull. Printed in bronzefill, with 0.1mm layer height. Sanded roughly only on the edges to have a nice contrast between the edges and the faces with lines. You have to print it twice to have all the parts. It is better not to print at once to avoid blobs.
  9. Hello all, I don't have so much time to publish my prints anymore, and here is the reason why: I founded Chantier Libre a non-profit fablab 3 years ago, which promotes the use of libre softwares and open hardware. Of course the first tool we used was my trusty old Ultimaker Original. We launched a crowdfunding campaign to allow us to build more machines (SLA and ceramic 3D printer, big size 3D printer, thermoforming machine...) and mainly to build the first prototype for our openhardware big CNC machine Fraizilla. This CNC is designed to cut 2.5x1.25m panels for projects like Opendesk or Wikihouse. The estimated cost is under 6500€. The design is easily extendable. The steel frame can be build in a workshop with lasercutter and metalsheet folding machines. All the other components are standard an easy to find online. Here is a video introducing Fraizilla: You can support us so that we publish all the design files (freecad files and building instructions): And in case you wonder, the name Fraizilla is because in french fraise means strawberry and cutter, and the machine is big and powerfull ;-)

    Wave necklace

    Version 1.0

    1,415 downloads

    The patterns of this necklace are proceduraly generated: all the parts are different. I used Blender to design it. Don't forget the brim for the print ! Whats so good with bronzefill is the heavy weight of the prints: it relly feels different as plastic.

    Spirals medallion

    Version 1.0

    1,395 downloads

    This is a quick and easy to print medaillon, very nice in colorfabb bronzefill once polished.
  12. Version 1.0

    1,460 downloads

    This a lamp designed in Blender with prodcedural texture to make some bumps on it. It is 3D printed in Colorfabb XT, then the "valleys" are filled with a natural clay plaster, so that the light is stopped or not with the pattern of the texture. The result plays beautifully with light, lighten or not. It has been designed to print without support.
  13. Version 1.0

    1,350 downloads

    This is the model of the village where our fablab is located (St Cyr de Favières). Modelled with Blender from aerial views, pictures and map, with the aim to make the village easy to recognize. We wanted to make 19 of them, as a gift to the 19 mayors of the villages with the same name as the one of our fablab, as they gathered for their annual meeting. The big print was too long, so we reduced it a little to stay under the 5 hours per print limit.

    Woodfill Village model, big

    Version 1.0

    1,413 downloads

    This is the model of the village where our fablab is located (St Cyr de Favières). Modelled with Blender from aerial views, pictures and map, with the aim to make the village easy to recognize. The print with woodfill makes it quite different from the white colorfabb version: less details but the feeling is very nice

    Post your latest print!

    Here are my two last prints, both planters as I needed some for the fablab. The first one is quite simple The second is more complicated as I didn't want to need a saucer for that: So I modeled a ventilated drain to prevent stagnation of excess water at the bottom. More details in my "print" section. All the files are of course on Youmagine
