  1. Thanks :) but do not underestimate the differences in talent. The good thing is that this has been helping redevelop my eye/hand coordination. But, still have frustration levels. But, it is improvement. :)
  2. The desk is in a sorta final placements before being glued down . All of this is just placed into position, but want to think about it and maybe move a thing here or there or add a thing or two, or not..... All lab equipment/beakers and such are 3D printed.
  3. 🤣🤣 These two guys popped into mind when I read that. I know...I know...I am old. This is a better pic. B.O.B is the one on the right....
  4. Rather than an SLA printer, I would prefer that UM stay on the FDM market focus since it would involve basically restarting from scratch in the short run and take away resources from making sure the current/upcoming printers have the best profiles for dimensional accuracy. Basically, 'we have really good printers-let us make sure they deliver. On the flip side, I am very interested in seeing this new thing.
  5. OK, so now I am doing things around the floor and parts that go on the roll top desk. This guy is going under the roll top desk. Top Left is the conjoined demon and the ball and chain painted, ready to assemble. Top Right has the Manacle placed upon the leg. Bottom Left is a loose placement Conjoined demon and ball and chain glued in place. The desk is just there to check placement before gluing. This is the roll top desk and some of the parts that go into it. I researched torture devices to populate the desk shelves. They are all not prepp
  6. This is the iron cage and occupant in the main parts. And a loose fitting before gluing together and into the wall part. And this is the wall as it now exists: The wall and floor is now affixed to the base The iron cage is glued into place The books are now glued into the bookshelves The bookshelves are now glued into place Top parts are now added to the bookshelves For Beaky, I could have named the 'trophy' 'Orson' or Beaky. I chose Beaky because I figured people would have a better chance of seeing a Warner Br
  7. For the geometry, I used a mixture of 3DS MAX 2016 for the basic geometry and 3D Coat for detailing, distressing and adding other details. In full disclosure, I did not make the skeleton parts that are in there (arm) and will be there. But I did greatly modify them. Printed on the S5 and UM3E in PLA. Painting is being done with brushed on acrylics over a primer. The acrylics are a combo of washes and dry brush.
  8. Good grief, I am slow. It took almost a full week to paint the books for the bookshelves. I also did a bit of starting to clean up the roll top desk.
  9. So, spent a majority of the day painting the Bookshelf and roll top desk. First, I disassembled the bookshelf and books that go into it. I had to be careful to take the books out in order since it took a while to get them into the proper place after printing them. So far, the bookshelf and roll top desk have just some basic washes on them with a bit of work to bring out detail. I still have to make the bookshelf a bit more 'wood grainy." But, I needed to see how it worked against the wall and floors. Who knows how long it will take to paint all those books, let al
  10. So far, this is where I am on this project. I will have to adjust colours as I add pieces. Trying to figure what I will do to get this done is taking a lot longer than I had hoped. But it will be an evolving process. This is the preliminary paint job on the back walls and floor. These are the smaller parts I have painted as well. Again, will probably have to adjust the paint job once it starts getting put together. The arrows point to 'the other side' of the objects themselves as they had additional detail to view. Personally, I like the eyes in the skull crossed,
  11. Way back in the day, Warren Publishing put out a set of black and white magazines. Creepy was one of those magazines and, the mascot was Uncle Creepy. Being the comics fan I am, plus having read the magazines when they were first released (yes....that old) I started this project a while back. This is the concept rendering: And, this is the beginnings of finishing the print. Still moving slow, but improving, so, if you like this, be patient as it has gazillions of parts to paint and assemble. All things printed, just need to be finalized. I had a large
  12. 👍 Gots a ways to go.....But, thanks :)
  13. Thank you :) . I am still working on getting the whole 'thing' together with getting the brain engaged, eye hand coordination, painting and the actual digital sculpting. I am so slow these days.......
  14. Took me forever to do this. And it is still rougher than I would have liked. 3D concept rendering: Finished piece:
  15. I am thinking that this has to do with which axis the program of origin has set as its 'up axis'. Cura uses 'Z Up'. Many programs use 'Y Up.' Check to see if Solidworks uses 'Y Up.' It is also possible to just rotate the object to proper orientation in Cura to compensate for this. Also, Solidworks may allow an export to 'Z Up.'
  16. Tried throwing a dart to see if landed. While I tried it a long time ago with the X-Strand, I have printed with PP and had no issues, but then, I was not pushing design boundaries. I was using compact, vertical designs in both X-Strand and UM PP. I can say that I remember making sure the plate was super duper clean and a very thin film of PVA. I was also in a very climate controlled room with low humidity.
  17. Thanks @cloakfiend 🙂 The surgery was back in January, but troubles persist. I cannot tell you how many prints are made, but due to fine motor control issues, I have not been able to finish them. Kinda hard to paint without fine motor control. Kinda makes sanding and finishing a bit difficult. Lots of issues that myself and the medical team are working to find ways to help things out. Just gotta remap the brain, if possible..... But, that print looks awesome :) Glad to hear that the 3D pen is working for you.
  18. This is a work in progress. Since surgery, I am working with some side effects (still) so, I am slow and having to work bunches to get around them. Printed on the S5. This is the model on the build plate. Still not finished. Gotta really sharpen details and work a bit more on the overall bust. Sliced, you can see the details disappear..... Print is rough as hell....After years of no PVA issues, getting them now... ☹️
  19. I do not know Tinkercad, so I ask about importing, or creating a vector line and just extrude without all the booleans?
