Finally beginning 3 printing, hands-on

Recommended Posts

Hi community.

Anders from Sweden joining.

Have been using 3D printing services since mid 90's and finally acquired a printer at work.

Its an Ultimaker 3 extended and has been running hot for about 1,5 week now. Almost gone thru 3 rolls of wire and a first clog... So bad neither several hot nor cold pulls solved it. Had to take the head apart and clean it with a drill.

Amazed of how easy it was to get started and produce decent prints.

 

Here are some of the trial pieces (can't show the work related stuff though). Made a holder for the file set we clean prints with and some cable clips in nylon to tie the power cord to the vacuum hose on my saw.IMG_20180728_35145.thumb.jpg.51f7b6453682edec3486fad097561180.jpgIMG_20180728_54892.thumb.jpg.3363559ae31672815d623e9fde9976c5.jpgIMG_20180728_10850.thumb.jpg.8222b86f85e8c34eb660ebc045271f49.jpg

    • "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.
