Took me forever to do this. And it is still rougher than I would have liked.   3D concept rendering:   Finished piece:    

Bath interferometers.  I have made about 20 of these for people who use them to test their telescope mirrors.  They are amazingly accurate and can do better than a $40,000 Zygo PSI optical tester.  Th

I just finished this. It was a multi-part print for ease of painting. Some of it I am not sure what happened...but hey, it is purty....And, I am unanimous in that ? Test Render Parts

Nice :) Layer height .5 on a .8 nozzle and still 92 hours of print... omg :)

Have to say that my .8 nozzle if fast becoming my favorite one :)

Edit: Remember my Ulti-bot army?

They lost the war... All 50 of them were crushed by giants in less than 5 minutes. Even the special ones with red and black clothing that were built on site!

    hahaha better not to be involved with soldiers :mrgreen: Yes with such a big 0.8 opening it is possible to print very fast large pieces.

    Leon: you should definitely consider purchasing one of those blocks from Anders... I've started using mine last week and I love being able to swap out nozzles in 30 seconds :)

    Oh yes I want that block for sure. Very good 'innovation' and cheap E3D nozzles.

    Thanks! For a first quick mount I used the friction welding method and after that the 3Doodler to fill gaps and repairs. Works great.

     

    Friction welding? Where can I find more about this method? That sounds promising.

    Just put a piece of filament in a dremel and tip the wanted connection at high speed.

    Little Robot designed with Autodesk Inventor, 24 parts, printed on Ultimaker 2. I'll must wait servo motors for the arms, but for now it is controllable via bluetooth and is capable to avoid obstacles with an ultrasonic sensor.

    Great job!

    May I ask which temperature and speed you use to print with a 0.8 nozzle at 0.5 mm layer height?

    The temperature is 245C speed 60 and material flow 95%. I figured that out after some test prints all the pieces came out nice with these settings.

    Is it water tight? My spiralize objects sliced with Cura have tight outer shells but the bottom looks like a sieve.

    Not watertight, the bottom is like you describe. I was thinking to pass some XTC-3D to seal it.

    PVC glue works good to make it watertight... but better is to increase to flow to somewhat like 120 - 140% on the bottom layers, or also on all layers for a little bit thinker walls ...

    this works very well (tested) with drilled out UM nozzles, the olson/E3D may need even more flow increase, best is just to try a few different flow settings on a few small spiralize objects. It also doesn't hurt to make the bottom a bit thicker

    I feel like it has been a really long time since I posted. I have not forgotten about you guys. I have just been deep in the process of developing a new youtube show using my Ulitmaker 2 and the logos of different youtube personalities.

    It started with my cinemassacre 3d print that I did as a fan (which I shared here several months back) and has blossomed into a fun series about developing 3d prints. I have several other logos that I am already working on and hope to get more youtubers involved. I'll keep you guys updated if you are interested.

    Anyway check out the latest episode.

     

    And here are a couple images if you just want to check out the finished 3d print itself.

    For me flow at 110% on the first layers makes them water tight (like Arjan Advised). Tested with the 0.8 nozzles too

    Printed in white PLA with a 0.6 mm nozzle in spiralize mode of Cura, it's a 12 hours print at 30 mm/s.
