Lighting Tests

Posted (edited) · Lighting Tests

I have had some prints kicking my little heiny for the last month. Between long print times for tests (3-4 days just to find out something did not work) or humidity issues that killed prints becaue the PVA would clog up, I did manage to get a semi-working print.

It is almost correct. But with all the crazy fractal shapes and hollows and close areas to feed fibre optics into, it is a bit of a dance between structural integrity and ability to feed the optics as I wish.

I gotta reprint this again, and it is a 6 day print. But, I am liking where it is going. It is following theory just fine. Just gotta refine the modeling technique before I move on to other things planned. So far, about 6 different things that involve these processes.

Very much for the dark. That is why the lights going more into the setting is very important. The swimming dolphins are supposed to reflect the light, but I need more lights in the back to make it work.

It will be very bland in the daylight or lit room as it is just chrome covered dolphins and translucent white setting.

    This is really neat! I cant imagine modeling that was the easiest thing ever.

    Thank you. The modeling was not so hard. It is a collection of fractals that are put together for the scene. The dolphins were modeled in about 5 minutes.

    The tough part is the rendering. It is fragile and takes forever.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
