  1. Hi everyone After a very long tim i finally had the time and energy to finish a more complicated project. Meet God-Zilla - the famous Wrestler. Its printed in 15 parts in colorfabb glowFill (i absolutely love this material) and painted using games workshop and tamiya colors. I really like how the paintjob affects the glow effect.
  2. hi i made this with a rock tumbler http://bauermaker.tumblr.com/post/101928651812/bronzefill-after-rock-tumbler and this with only the dremel http://bauermaker.tumblr.com/post/91984082552/my-latest-work i put some aluminium screws inside my tumbler. but they re quite big so i want to try something else in the future. i also got very pleasing results just with sanding and polishing by hand, but have no pictures.
  3. Since i am swamped with worked right now, I didnt have much time to do my usual sanding and priming so i gave Acetone Vapor smoothing a try. It took away too much detail but still the smoothnes is amazing, and it only takes 15 minutes. Getting the ABS to print smoothly was a bit more difficult but after a few failed attempts i found the perfect settings. 0.4 Nozzle No Fan 250 first layer, 230 for the rest 70 degrees for the heated bed 30mms 115 % flow printed in a very small room (Speiseklammer) without airflow using ABS Deluxe (less warping and consistent diameter)
  4. I second everything braddock says and I would go so far as to demand from colorfabb to release a cheaper alternative :wink: For me this is a huge gamechanger, finally being able to print high quality looking items without the need of alot of post processing.
  5. i forgot to mention that allthough using the dremel works best on the bronzefill its still not without its risks. with the mentioned tip i used the lowest speed settings and still had to take care not to put too much pressure on it. the plastic still melts very quickly.
  6. Hi Nico http://www.dremeleurope.com/at/de/ocs/product/6039/172/drahtb%C3%BCrsten/drahtb%C3%BCrste-19-mm;jsessionid=CE05EE1A7DCC6609BDA1031F96ADAC88.sl021-vm_1 this is the exact one is used, but i am planning to get all of them to be more flexible, i also thought about using a "Drahtbürste" sinsce they also come in different metals.
  7. Hi I had some time to play arounf with the bronzefill material and have to say that i love it. at first, i had some problems tog et rid of the underextrusion but since i fixed it i had a blast. It prints like woodfill, so you dont really see any printlines. this was done with 0.06mm, 215 temp, 45 speed and 105 flow on my new UM2 to get this finish i used my dremel and a metal polishing attachment. after a few minutes i hat this finish. http://www.dremeleurope.com/at/de/ocs/category/6033/reinigen---polieren right now i am really pleased because this technique gives me the po
  8. Finished it, only postprocessing with the dremel, no sandiong, no steel wool, no polish, more info here http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/5922-filling-and-sanding-prints/&do=findComment&comment=59606
  9. yeah, its insane, if you print with 0.06 mm there are no visible print lines, and for me it prints more reliably and is way better to post process than woodfill.
  10. @braddock: awesome, what size is it and what layer height did you use ? i assume the red tint comes from your special antique patina, could you maybe post a link ... thx I printed the eagle mascot for tonights WorldCup final. Layer height 0.1, polished with steel wool and the dremel, then i painted on some green rust. i didnt use any sandpaper or paint thinner on the model, so its a little rougher.
  11. @drayson Bier sehr gerne, wo bist du denn normalerweis eunterwegs @Nicolinux I tried some pastes (Polierpasten) but wasnt able to get good results. or to be more exact, i didnt notice much difference after using the paste. One exception was woodfill, because it doesnt react to good to sanding (turns white) so i used the red paste from dremel to get the brownisch finsih back
  12. @skint patience is a virtue normally i am a very impatient man, and the sanding process is always killing me because of how long it takes. the pug models took me weeks to complete because i always got sick of sanding after a few hours ... but the results and the reactions on this forum keep me motivated
  13. I finally got my bronze today and after some underextrusion problems (easily fixed by increasing the flow) i managed to get my first 3.5 hours print. Printed with 0.06mm layer height, it came out nearly perfect. I am still trying to understand the best way to sand and polish it. tried different polishing porducts and even used Nitro thinner to get a smooth surfce (worked very well but left white discolorization.) i am not a 100 percent satisfied with the current result and will continue my experiments, but wanted to share something anyway
