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

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

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

Hmm interesting, so then acetone combined with tumbling should then in theory produce a piece with no print lines and a metallic finish?

I see the finish is very fragile, but im sure a clear coat could help that somewhat.

    Nice! is that drum rubberized on the inside ?

    Do you know a supplier for a (rubber) drum, preferably in Europe? I only seem to find them in the US with huge shipping ...

    here is 'your' rubberized drum inset:

    printed with innoflex 45 filament

    so there is no need to spend that much money ;)

    Got a ghost email, so i thought, what the hell, ill post something seeing that im here now.

    Well after learning that my PFTE is dying, i was worried that my print would be ruined, but alas it came out ok! It is my scanned buddha with my friends face on it. First Zbrush 3d print! yay! now on to aliens...

    Another thing, i wish you could post portrait photos without having to crop them to prevent them from being rotated.

    are they auto rotated? when portrait on your pc? if so that should be changed imho, but not you could add to white areas to the side to make the picture landscape, but you should not need to do that of-course ...

    Pic is same model as above post acetone, unfortunately the model split on me for some reason, o well, one line is not so bad to deal with, a bit of putty should do it.

    i print everything with the same settings and print everything in pla. my settings are 0.06 layer height, 210c sometimes 208c temp. and all shells 1.2mm no in fill, speed 35mm/s. im going to do a tutorial on the post processing with acetone as some people who have no arts and craft experience tend to freak out at the mention of acetone, and get paranoid they will kill themselves or blow their house up. when in actual fact there is next to no danger what so ever, its all hypothetical. if you go to the tips n tricks section, you can look for acetone smoothing with pla and get the general idea of what you need to do.

     

    what are your printing specs for this scaned buda ?

    Could you share with me a model gcode to test a fine printing like that? I never get to configure my ultimaker 2 correctly not sure if its my code or printer and I see you make a really smooth one!

    The 'fine' print look i think you are talking about 'IS' the acetone look. without it you have lines. No settings will remove them. You have to physically remove them yourself. And the another reason for the 1.2mm shell (top/ bot) that may seem thick for some people is that it gives you a little more freedom when it comes to smoothing out the undersides (via sanding) and sharp inclines without going through the model shell, as they ALWAYS look lame in very thin layer heights. I read somwhere that i can change the distance the model is drawn from the supports and making the gap less may improve this. But hey ill send you the same model as above which is kinda poly heavy as its my first attempt at Zbrush, but it wont look the same as the picture above without post work. I didnt spend too long, maybe 15mins but still ive made an effort to make it look nice rather than slapping paint straight on it as some people tend to do.

    Aletrnatively you can just go through free models and look for the most detailed one and print it at 0.06mm layer height.

    And also just to let you know i am printing with out of the box settings, and never really touch the advanced setting in cure, just the basic ones as mentioned above. Good Luck.

    im not at my desk but if you want to try to print my buddha then go to you magine and search for it, its there.

    Heres a gcode for the buddha, i tried uploading it to youmagine, but that website is completely usless and slow and contantly resets during uploads and gave me errors on files size and just about everything else so I gave up. but you may need/want to add supports for the ears as i forgot to! so i added the OBJ files as well. Cura doesnt seem to put the support on the lowest part of the overhangs for some reason just slaps them on its grid, and they really should be closer than it is now to the actual model in a perfect world. " my wish for future cura improvements!"

    I see the code now, why the shell and bottom/top are so thick ?

    To stop the overhangs ruining the print. And making it stronger and more stable during printing. You could try 0.8 but i cant get good results that way.  The top and bottom sometimes leaves holes. With 1.2 you cant go wrong with anything. Might be a touch longer but with 0 infill you make up the time.

    Nice paint job, it'd be nice to see better quality photos though. Its 2015, i expect clear photos, lol! Close ups would be better! Im a big fan of close ups!

    Nice and how do I add suport ? cura does nothing in my piece when I press add supor everwhere

    Sorry, to add supports, just load it up in maya or max or cinema or blender, or any program and just make two cylinders from the base to the model ears. You will later cut this off but you need it to start printing the bottom of the ears or its too thin for curas supports. If you go to youmagine.com and look for my buddha then look at the pictures youll see how i did them there. You can even see how someone else printed it with the supports in the photo. Hope that helps, im not by my computer at the moment.

    Just type buddha in the search and its the gold shiny one

    I helped to print in 3D a wonderful job! Dmitri Dubyaga my friend and Colleges. Meet brotherbear-of-steel, #fallout #falloutstyle he created the 3D model within 14 days. I printed it for 36 hours on 3D printer #ultimaker2 and pla #rec. 5 days later, Dmitry painted by hand with acrylic paints

    Man I gotta get me some paint gear and brush (pun intended) up on the old warhammer painting techniques, cause maaan!

    That just takes 3d prints to a whole new dimension (again... pun intended)...

    Meanwhile, here is what nhfoleys awesome slideblocks look like in a boring white:

    image.thumb.jpg.f8399001feafd18d42a14b74d6c5b581.jpg

    The are printed in PLA at 0.2 mm. layer height, 0.8 mm. walls, 100% infill, 100 mm./s printspeed, 200 degrees hotend, 60 degrees bed.

    Printer is a hacked UM1 with alu heatbed + glass, E3D hotend and crossflow fan...
