Did you actually check what the world record for the smallest working electric drill is? You might at least be close...

 

I did a search and found one that was the second worlds smallest :p, as mine looks even smaller. :grin:

but who knows. I'm sure its the smallest 3D printed one so that's all I'm claiming. I actually found a smaller battery and I'm sure i can find a smaller button. the problem is, it took me 3 hours to solder it as the wires kept breaking off and was hard to hold all the little bits.

I tried printing small with my E3D 0.25mm nozzle and Olsson Block on my UM2

testtorn 0.25mm nozzle 0.04layer oronpropp

Far from perfect, but still impressive for the size.

(yes, the orange thing to the right is a foam earplug)

I was just considering maybe purchasing one of those nozzles for some experimentation. Would you recommend it?

Yes

Its fun to play around with the array of nozzle sizes. The problem is you will then have heaps more settings to check and go through.

but changing just takes a few seconds and you can print detailed or fast

If you use cura just add one or more machines (rename something like UM2-0.6) so you don't have to change all preferred settings all the time, just select the right machine.

Thanks

Its everywhere now. I cant believe how fast stuff travels like this. Some twisted facts added by some though. I made sure UM got their name in and 3ders.com has added how the community (you guys) have played a part. Because really if I didn't have the guidance from people here then I (and a lot of others) wouldn't be able to make things as good as we can now.

One for the category practical printing:

Rattle for my godchild

 

I've shown the print here before, but not "in use".

The model on duty is my extremely handsome godchild ;)

And another one:

Olsson Heater block + E3D .8mm nozzle test

My ulti-bot army :)

Just installed the Anders Olsson block this morning and I've abused the E3D 0.8mm nozzle to print all those little yellow fellows. I'm coaching a coderdojo tomorrow and because it's the 12th dojo for that location (1 year anniversary) we wanted to do something special. So I'm going to bring the UM2. Wanted something to give to the kids when they go home. Since it is all about coding, arduino and lego mindstorm, what better than the ulti-bot :)

Printed (only the yellow ones) with 0.8 nozzle on 0.3mm layers. 15% infill. About 9 minutes per unit (printed them per 10 obviously :) )

Blizz - that is lovely! Why would you need infill on those robots?

Now to my latest prints - was trying the Colorfabb Bronzefill for the first time. Lovely stuff in general, I need to get to know how to post-process it.

Tried to print my wife's sculpture, made from 123D Catch photos. Tried to polish it with my Dremel equipped with soft polishind disk. In general, it worked well. How do I get rid of the dark recessed areas? They are hard to reach with anything.

Shurik, dunno, I think they'll come out just as good without... I just feel safer with some infill :)

I think the darker areas are actually burned. A dremel creates loads of friction and heat if you stay in the same spot for too long.

I love how that stuff prints, like magic :D Need less support, lines dissapear, details are great with 0.2mm layer and 0.6 nozzle even.

Valcrow they actually look quite good but you can clearly see the difference on the stars on the belly, almost not visible on de 0.8 version. Although that might also be because of the printing speed.

Printing a quadcoper frame I designed based on the Ecks Fibre model. With respect to the original design I added two little platforms for the video camera and video transmitter at the front and back.

I had already built one from plexiglas, cut "by hand" with a dremel (see the second photo). Amazing now to be able to design it, print it and possibly share it thanks to my UM2.

Colorfabb XT CF20, most appropriate for a quadcopter in general and for the Ecks Fibre in particular :)

If you are curious about how to make one of these things, you will find a full description of this build here: http://www.personal-drones.net/plexiglas-mini-fpv-quadcopter-experimental-build-based-on-the-ecksfibre-design/.

Inspired by Personal Drones post, I'd like to show some pictures of a redesign of Spidex Micro (on Thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:326062).

The lateral parts got extended to mount the base plate upside down (for my understanding the correct orientation), the base plate got adjusted to be more stronger at the motor mounts, the mount for the FPV antenna got adjusted.

Printed with PLA.

Flying like a speedy bumblebee! :-P :-P :-P

A first flight video will be available on Youtube soon (just uploading):
