Post your latest print!

Recommended Posts

Haven't posted here in a while,

I had an order for a Stargate I haven't made in a long time, and I lost one of the parts molds,

so I thought why not print it and make a new mold :)

Printed in PLA white

cleaned up the part, made 10  copies (1 extra), in tinted resin.

and painted these in the same paint scheme as the rest of the Stargate.

and whole gate, just to show off :)

The Stargate is 1 meter (40") in diameter

 

nice work!

how did you do the resin cast?

cheers!

Made myself a bracket to hold UM2 electronics.... as a testbench and most likely the start of a long self-build journey...

Was curious about the chinese clone electronics (and did not want to spend the money ultimaker is asking...), sofar the only thing I found is that they placed all temp sensor connectors up-side-down :) not a big deal, just need to bend them up a little... it works ok, did not jet test it with any motors.

Its been a while since I posted anything on here so I thought I'd share this with you.

Although this is my first post in a long time, I've still been lurking in the forums and I have to say I'm blown away by some of the stuff you guys have been printing. Seriously inspiring stuff! I've just launched my new website so head over to see some 3D renders of this guy

Cheers

thought I'd try something new, I have seen a guy here make a cool ninja style tinkerplay. I got some filament laying around so i'd though id make... a monkey-ish-thing?

my experience, it works great! I only have some general problems with support and ball shapes, but overall im quite pleased with the "tinkerplay" experience.

This is obviously doesn't come anywhere close to the amazing works of the art that were posted here in the old good days of the forum.

However, I made this fridge magnet for a colleague of mine who wanted to make a birthday gift to his expecting wife.

As he says, the positive effect was overwhelming.

So I'm just happy having made their day. :-)

Thanks guys!

The Superglue did the trick with the magnet as well as with the attachment of the red and the white PLA.

My colleague was very happy indeed, because his wife was very happy with the gift. :-)

So, I got his permission to publish the magnet.

Ive made this automata as a birthday present for a good friend of mine.

Its called "Flight of thoughts"

It function as follows:

First a gear is selected, high or low, which determines flight speed and rotational speed of propeller. Then the user determines the flight plane by actuating the control stick

And lastly the motion is formed by turning the crank.

The plane can then be controlled in flight by the control stick.

The design uses a swashplate design to give path, which both rasies and lowers the plane, aswell as choose a fitting nose attitude (pitch). The gears and links are merely for control and actuation.

    • "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.
