So... in preparation to my local craft/makers event in a weeks time and for an upcoming photoshoot for my new website, the 3D printer was very, very busy. And I haven't even started on the prints to fundraise for the Pangolins yet! I made a simple design to make keyrings.

Nice test print! What material is it made off? Does it withstand a tug or will it easily break? 

 

It's quite a funny view to see a collection of vases and things and just 2 seemingly random butts amongst them ?

Thank you! Just made it in PLA. yes, it can withstand normal tugging. Tested it ( with primary & high school pupils as my main lab rats + a bunch of adults who agreed to attach their keys ) for a couple of months now.
Hehehehe, I might to try to capture some video of potential buyers reaction to the butts. ?

While I also like the twisted vases, I think the butts are going to attract more attention. Especially from the kids. From the adults too of course, but they are going to do their very best to hide it. They will probably take a twisted vase in hand, act as if they carefully study it, and then glance over it towards the butts.  :)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
