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

Thanks mates.<3

Since I have no dual-color upgrade, each color was printed separately, including the David stars.

I t took quite a while to intersect them properly with the body and clean up all the mess. All that - in Sketshup which was constantly crashing due to the complexity of the mesh.

That robot was scaled up to double size, i.e. - 200%. At the original size, even the .25 nozzle couldn't deliver the required quality of the stars.

    @shurik: There are smaller nozzles than .25mm ;)

    What a pity - no dual extrusion... nevertheless an excellent print!

    @shurik

    would you mind sharing the files?

    I'd love to give it a try ;)

    Ahh, Shurik, you got everyone excited and then let us down with a bump. :)

    Always loved the concept of 3D printing but until last year also knew/thought it was too early in the technologies evolution to produce solid and accurate working parts that also had some kind of durability attached... although with the ability to just keep on producing exactly the same part perhaps durability is not so important anyway.

    Most reasonably priced basic spearguns are usually Delrin (DuPont) or a Polyoxymethylene derivative used in injection molded manufacturing... real high performance plastic.

    So... could I 3D print a speargun which might compare even at the most basic performance levels... well I thought I'd give it a try.

    Initial testing with PLA and ABS were encouraging but hardly successful... accuracy/shrinking/warping of prints was continual and hardly a new problem which seemed to doom my ambitious project to abject failure.

    Then carbon filament arrived...

    MK1 was a small and successfully tested speargun at the end of last year which hasn't yet caught any fish but that's besides the point... it was used 3 times and is still intact and has proved to be an extremely useful prototype.

    MK2 is being printed right now...

    To say I'm pleased so far halfway through the printing stage is an understatement... but the real 'working part' tests are still clearly yet to come!

    all handle parts have been printed with ColorFabb's XT-CF20 at various settings

    Hi foehnsturm,

    Hi Shurik,

    I assembled the files and sliced with (new) Cura. Scaled to 200% and cheated with nozzle size (set to 0.25 while actually printing with 0.4 mm). As you had to design the stars to be inlays it's quite tricky to print the one on the front side. Very little to extrude but a lot of retractions, the same issues I suppose you had when printing it separately.

    Perrrfect!

    Indeed, the front star was printed at 0.04 resolution, with .25 nozzle, and the first couple of trials were not very successful.

    The youmagine robot, modified in a similar way but for dual extrusion.

    It says "WOW MOM" of course. Nice idea for Mother's Day :)

    na na na na na na na na na na BATLAMP!

    My latest design, a geek lamp. I printed the base with Proto Pasta and then slightly brushed it, really nice result. The lamp screen was a solid STL and with Cura I just printed it with one shell and no bottom/middle/top infill.

    With the screen I had some problems because as the wall was only 0.4 thick it deformed due to contraction of the material, and it ended up being an ondulated surface. It all got fixed printing at the lowest temperature possible (190ºC in the UM2+).

    @shurik, You're greatly welcome :)

    Btw, you could do this as well.

    While my Ultimaker original, is not really original anymore I still like to show off :)

    This is a large scale print of a statue I 3D scanned and printed, and still is a work in progress.

    the total height is 60cm, and the largest printed part 38cm, the base is printed in 4 sections.

    Looks very nice @Xeno!! Is it still WIP? Can't wait to see it when it is finished.

    From a completely different angle, and even though I did not print it myself but 'team Ultimaker' did, I really want to share this print if it has gone unnoticed.

    One of the most impressive print qualities I have seen in a while. Give it a try yourself, the settings are shared :)
