Personal Information

  1. Argh, I wish I could be there. Alas, I will be refreshing my Twitter feed in Seattle. Looking forward to the big announcement!!!
  2. I've been meaning to do this for a while, but I finally got around to posting the CAD files & assembly instructions to my bag and wallet on YouMagine. The little hinges are printed in place. If you use a heated glass bed (like on Ultimaker 2 or 2+), you can achieve a glossy candy-shell finish. The clasps are magnetic, so they snap shut and open without the need for fumbling to find buttons or zippers. Files & Instructions: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/mixee-wallet and https://www.youmagine.com/designs/mixee-bag Photos
  3. I don't think you grasp how little I work out these days. For me, the ideal would be something that I can fit in a backpack.
  4. How much does the small one weigh? I can see using it for demos but if I'm traveling with it, size AND weight are both important. I don't work out and have poor upper body strength.
  5. Ahh, superglue. I will give that a try. It turns out the E6000 holds the magnet together well, I just had to let it set overnight. I will try Epoxy if it comes loose. Thanks for the suggestions!
  6. Hi all, I'm curious what you guys use to glue 1)PLA to PLA and 2) PLA to Metal (magnets). I have been using E6000, which works on PLA to PLA, but I'm curious if you guys have better ideas. I just started trying to use it on PLA to metal magnets, but it seems like it's not as strong, but maybe I'm just impatient and should let it set overnight? Thanks! Nancy
  7. Thanks for the advice. I'm borrowing my friend's UM2 so I'll leave the firmware alone for now. I wanted to use this feature to connect chain links but I'll just insert it stealthily while it's printing the other links.
  8. I don't know--I'm still tweaking the files, I'm trying out different connectors, clasps, chains, etc.
  9. Hi all, I am testing the Pause At Z plugin, and the print head moves to the specified location at the correct layer. However, it goes right back to printing. How do I get it actually pause at Z, preferably with some user input before it starts printing again. I'm printing from an SD card on an UM2. I'm using Cura 14.09. Thanks!
  10. Ahh, never miss an opportunity to show pictures of printers or dogs.
  11. Sweet! I'm glad to hear she liked it. I am making another one. A 4x3 Cross Body version. I miscalculated and the chains were too short. I ended up placing in the end of the printed chain link while an extension was being printed. Ahh.. maybe a photo will explain it better.
  12. I printed this on a borrowed Ultimaker 2 and a Ditto+ printer. I am writing a write up on the design and plan to share the files on YouMagine, but haha, I couldn't wait to share the pictures. This is by far the longest print I've ever done. It was printed in 15 different pieces. I tried to limit my prints to about 3-4 hours each so in case there were crashes, I didn't risk too much lost print time. The triangles could be recombined to make different shapes as well. I'm trying to work out a way to publish the files so they can be easily rearranged to create bags (or whatever) of different dimensions. Maybe even non-triangle polygons? I mean, the geometries isn't really that complex. After all, one of the design constraints was my rudimentary Blender abilities. I also want to do another print where I print it directly on the glass. I printed this on masking tape since my Ditto+ doesn't have a heated build plate. But I have my friend's Ultimaker for another two weeks so I should take advantage of the glassy heated bed, I think!
  13. You want this part completely hollow? What's the wall thickness? I used NetFabb to "fix" this and got a solid object. What you can do in Cura is select 0% infill to print a hollow part. I think the top and bottom should also be 0mm if you want the top/bottom as holes. I would also do a brim support, that prints.. well.. a brim around your object so it adheres to the platform better while printing. I used those settings in this print: http://iama3dprinter.tumblr.com/post/62926508437/julia-vase-002-flow-by-virtox Solid file for your bolt: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aetwjlr49u3a1su/toilet-bolt-solid.stl
