Post your latest print!

Sorry but the car was drawn by hand by friends grandfather, so the resulting electronic IP is not mine to share - and I dont think my friend would like that. Its a very personal thing that was made by me - just for him.

But I am glad you like the photos at least...

Sharing the HAPPINESS :-) ......... ultimaker was able to open the eyes of a wonderful blind women

I just wanted to share these 3 photos I made tonight.

I sometimes forget that when I use my ultimaker for work and building models... that they are also a window into amazment and magic.

And that was the feeling I had this evening.

My girlfriend who is blind took part in a little photo shoot at the weekend, where we converted her photos into a high quality 3d model using autodesks 123d catch software.

After 27 hours printing, my girlfriends PLA clone was finished..

For sighted people, we would just look and say wow cool.. but for a blind person.. that was real ... amazment in her eyes... she was able to put her hands on her face, her complete head.. see aspects of herself that she never knew before.

We just look in the mirror every morning infront of an electric toothbrush and take all that visual information for granted... but not a blind person..

Once again my ultimaker was able to open the eyes of a wonderful blind women... THANK YOU !!

Ian :-)

layer 0.2

retraction on

speed 40

brim on

support to buildplatform

infill 0%

 

Sorry for the crappy photo:

There is an option in Cura for closing gaps, Expert --> Open expert settings --> Fix Horrible, you can choose between type A and B.

I use 123D Disign and sometimes parts won't join in that program and I also get gaps.

little tip...

take your exported stl from 123 catch... bring the stl into a free 3d program like blender, remove all the crazy polygons that surround your object, save again now as stl.

bring the stl into netfabb

click auto repair and netfabb will close up the model for you.

NOW you have a closed clean mesh.

Bring your cleaned closed mesh into some nice free sculpting software to sharpen up the desigg, then export out as stl...

Then Cura it and print..

Hope the tip helps.

Ian :-)

Nobel Prize shortlist!!.......

I think we have to put the guy/girl who came up with the glass plate idea, on the Nobel prize shortlist for 2014!

as well as the one who came up with the idea of using a 50ct glue stick on that same glass plate!!!

Best update/upgrade ever.

Yesterday I was surprized by the effect of printing FlexPla directly on the glass.

Fles PLA on glass

 

Today I finished a ABS Fanduct with only a little bit, 0.5mm warping, will warp back if I bolt the fan on it.

Without a Heated Bed....

First one directly on the glass was a disaster...

But then I stole my daughter's 50ct Glue stick. Put it on the glas plate and woohw.... It worked :eek:

 

Not a nice print.. stringing and oozing, but I don't care, it's functional... :).

 

All Credits to the Glue on Glass Guy....

why is your material turning black in the middle of print ?

Ian :smile:

 

Ai.... should have made a B/W picture..

Infected by the Black Pla from an earlier print :???:.

If you like I, could run it trough Photoshop, but ain't gonna make a new one!! :-P

can i ask... i havent tried this gluestick idea yet.. or pritstick in england and ireland...

But I do have a heated bed on one of my ultimaker 1s at home, i put some bluetape or larger painters tape on the heated bed.. cook the bed up to 70 degreens, then print the first two or three layers nice and slow and careful,, then bring up the speed and BINGO... super flat super clean model....

Why not just use a little tape like the ultimakre 1 ? on the heated surface... the tape comes off in one go... the glue stuff.... not so sure ? ;-)

Hi Ian,

when there is or comes a heated bed upgrade or kit, I order one. but for now I had to try the gluestick.

And my daughters Prittstick from Henkel, is easy to remove with a knife. or some water.

A multi-part print of a space shuttle launching. The stripes I put on later with a black and red marker. Especially I like the launch-cloud which looks kinda realistic.

HO Scale people and cars

Everything white in this picture is HO scale (1/87 real life) for my nephews train set. The man on the far left - when it got to his head it just never turned solid so his head is a ball of mush. I printed the next 3 people at the same time but there was massive stringing to remove even though I printed very slow and cold (25mm/sec 190C). I had to remove lots of strings with the dremel. Still I am easily pleased and hope he likes these people. The Porche and the Jeep came out great though.

The orange bits near their waists must have come from my previous print (background). I guess sometimes it takes a long time for some of the pieces to dislodge and fall into the flow of molten plastic.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
