Post your latest print!

Recommended Posts

aaand a latest update on a print: a league of legends character called Cho'gath:

After Illuminarti's dragon post i'd changed the supports with meshmixer and this is the third print.

Still need to remove the support, but until now only the knees are broken a little. ( lets hope i dont screw it up an break the part.

moar support

If the support structures work out could you post your Meshmixer settings?

 

Now that you mention it, I have scaled up the print to twice the size in Cura, not in Meshmixer, this makes the supports effectively twice the size.

Anyway,

the layer height was 0.1mm, the diameter 1.6mm. Actually, pretty much standard I believe except layer heigth

the key is to add your own support.

printed with Brim in cura @ 35mm/s

err, what else do you want to know?

Spool Adapter Multi-Step

20140111 220429

20140111 231942

Something I had to print to get away from the tension issues of the stock spool holder.

This runs super smooth spinning on 608 bearings and it's fully adjustable to other spool sizes and expandable to multiple spools on one holder.

When changing filament it automatically goes right back on the roll the way it came off with no hassles of a bird's nest.

I would post it on Youmagine or thingiverse, but I'm not finished with the entire design. I'm making an adjustable wall mount bracket, the sleeves for the bearings, and the knobs.

If you would like, I can post it up there for you to download what I have so far.

Let me know.

Hi Guys

warping And missing layers

here`s my latest print, made a toy for my little girl, its a simple shape learning/puzzle game with some of the characters from Winnie the pooh.

will post files on youmagine for anyone who wants to print it.

total print time took 17hrs, ran into a few minor problem which consisted of warping in the corners and 1 problem that keeps re-occurring in my prints, missing layers see image 3 ( what causes this?)

@ porter

gr5 posted this a little while ago it may be applicable, if nothing it is something to look for when diagnosing the issue;

 

cat hair and dust can really ruin your day if it doesn't melt at 240C or cooler.

Regarding the spools getting stuck. 99.9% of the time it's fine. But if you are doing a 5 hours print with 1000 lines of height and one line is underextruded you get this annoying horizontal line in your print running all around every detail at that level.

Without measurements - I would say the extruder can pull/push 10 to 20 pounds of force. It takes about 1/4 pound of force to turn the filament normally. But sometimes something sticks a little. It's very rare. And might take a whole 2 pounds of force to get things moving again. Meanwhile that layer looks different from all the other layers.

Since I've been doing almost as much painting as printing... I figure I'd get start using something a little bit more legit than 10 year old paints and Fence spray lying around the house. So I got myself a new airbrush. Totally new to airbrushing and it arrived just before the start of the weekend. yay!

After spending Saturday trying to paint stuff, I came across a few issues. It's wet, you need wet things all over your table, and you need 3 hands. So naturally, Since the airbrush is going to help out my 3d prints, the 3D printer needs to do something nice for the airbrush, So today, I designed and printed an airbrush holder thing so I have all my paint tools all in one easy place, and all the wet stuff feeding into one area so my table isn't full of water and tools.

Oh Yeah, I couldn't find a container... so I just used an old CD spindle cap. Unfortunately, I plugged in a wrong number during design for the radius, and it ended up a bit squished. but still works. All the holder components are perfect though. Stuck a few pieces of leather to protect the brush & tip.

Holds these things. You need the airbrush at an angle, the eye dropper to add precise thinning water/solution. Syringe for adding LOTS of water to purge to change colours, and a paintbrush to mix paints in the little pot and scrub stuck on paint, tissue to clean your brush/spray test. All the parts snap together.

IMG_00001726-1024x750.jpg

And here's everything assembled. Everything sprays/drips into the container for ease of cleaning. The paintbrush is positioned directly infront of the airbrush so when you purge your airbrush, you clean your Bristle brush with the resulting spray as well.

Hopefully this will make my airbrush learning less messy.

An attempt to build a crossflow fan thingy.

crossflow1

 

The plan was to fill the front up with sections of straws to form the honeycomb pattern. I very quickly went "noooope!" and decided to take advantage of the fact that slicers produce honeycomb patterns for a living.

    • "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.
