  1. Ill just say it. That is a model Clitoris 100%. Just google clitoris model and you'll see,  maybe with some other bits the vulva or something but in that general area. Looks well printed kinda looks like bone. I thought it was the inner ear at first but why would someone post that as we've all seen it loads in biology books....so must be something naughty! Lol.

  2. My new vacuum adaptor. Needed a much thinner bit for the back of the oven where loads of crumbs fall somehow. Worked a treat. Ultimaker tough black pla. No acetone on this one for a change! 35 mins later and bam. Adaptor issue over!

  3. Thanks! I'm super happy with it and its not my dog so im cool with it. Good practice of modelling from photos. It was still alive when i first made it, but reprinting it much larger gave me the chance to fix some modelling errors that bugged me.


    Good old acetone to smooth the PLA PHA first always helps! Even though it was too hot and humid when i was applying it and will dunk in future as its way more effective. 


    Burr tools used to cut away my manual supports. Saved me 9hrs of printing time.

  4. Thanks,

    Yes the white gloss came out well, just was not so shiny in a few places, I think that overspraying after touches dulled areas. Weird, maybe i didnt shake the can enough! I'll know for next time!

  5. Hi all,

    Havent posted in a while due to taking a bit of time out during covid, but now am back and more motivated than ever hopefully, Just finished this off for a friend, and the compartment was a last minute addition, just drilled out and slotted in, I havent made many functioning parts but it works well and the tolerance is so tight inside that the pot slides out like the lid of a new iphone box, smooooothly. So satisfying. Ill post a quick vid soon, but have already given the it to the new owner and not taken enough photos lol. Not sure how much ashes actually go in an urn so maybe if more are needed for future models I will have to find that out! But I its ok for at least a bit.

    the pics below.

    White gloss spray paint btw.

  6. Anytime I had layer shifting I cleaned and added lube to the rods and it sorted it. You may also want to make sure there is no slack in the belts either. But cleaning has worked for me for years. Luckily I've never had to do any other kind of maintenance. But i'd start at the easiest option. Its usually larger stuff this occurs on most but I guess it can effect anything.

  7. And today i applied a chrome paintjob, im a bit tired of plating for now. Its a big bigger than my jar so will be a pain. Just chromed it up instead. Mirror finished are very unforgiving and i rushed it a bit and touched it too often whe is was wet needing to keep respraying it. I decided to leave it after the third coat and just accept it as it was.

  8. Here is my Take on Takeshi 6ix9ine's diamond 'Finding Nemo' style shark medallion, such a cool design, had to make one! lol Props to the jeweller Jimmy Phan. 

    Just gotta plate this beast now, need more plating solution or a bespoke plating tank! but might just spray it for a change! 😛


    Designed so none of the teeth needed internal supports as it would be impossible to get them out after! Very happy with the result and the Acetone smoothing as well! This one did need infill though due to the open mouth cavity! Haven't used infill in aaaages for art. But it really does help acetoned models from splitting a lot.

  9. Ill try the union thing out then also is there a remove layer touching buildplate option or turn first layer into infill option as i really would like that for large models that i dont want to waste hours on building the base.

    And thanks again for the useful information! Ill be back if it doesnt work! Lol.
