Haha @IRobertI, i was also thinking about printing some of those when i first saw them, but i paid up for a early-bird offer of the original product instead, so i will get mine in late august (since i opted for the upgraded version) :-)

For the past two weeks I've been printing a lot of pieces for my BB-8's frame. Last night I made one of the first body pieces. Being a round robot, the next few months of prints will make heavy use of support material. I used Cura 2.1.2 and got a nice result...here you can see the result...and then all that support material!

Been playing around a bit with Colorfabb HT clear, trying to get it as clear as possible. This is the latest print I made and I'm pretty happy with this one. As an extra experiment I also tried "suspending" something inside the print, sort of like those 3d laser etched crystal things you can get.

Post processed by wet sanding (240-320->600->1200), followed by polishing paste, followed by a polishing wheel. I tried some clear coat in a rattle can as well but I think I suck too much with one of those, I got better surface clarity with elbow grease :)

I also had to baby sit the print and pause it a few times to clean off the nozzle. HT loves sticking to the nozzle, burn into black goo and then drop into the print.

Superb print... well done!

@iroberti: Indeed very nice. Especially with the suspension. You used a relatively small layer height. Do you think this is an advantage? I did myself a few tests with HT clear and also got quite nice results (nothing to show off with so far...) but tried rather thick layers (0.2mm).

Before this one I did a fair bit larger print of the same model at double the layer height (0.1mm) and it didn't come out nearly as nice, it was quite cloudy. Not sure what happened there. From my tests so far, thinner layers seem to produce better results.

Impressive clarity! Maybe the dragging of filament could be avoided by using/making something like this

Could be nice if someone makes something like that for un2 hotends, it would allow for much direct approach fancaps & less dragging + less heat loss.

Nice. I have some random 300C silicon that I've thinking about coating the tip of the nozzle in but I didn't think I would be able to get it even enough, so I didn't bother trying. Having a pre-moulded piece like that would be cool to try.

Very nice piece!. It would be great if you have the time, to video-record all the process for us :-D

BTW fantastic idea inserting the floating image inside the cube.

i guess 2 things (one is very functional, the other not quite so much (probaly borderline on some community guidelines, so feel free to remove it!))

just a pump action 4 shot airsoft 40mm grenade launcher, like you do... thats 1.6kg of PLA and 124 hours worth of printing, and that prototype V1 :O

the CAD work, all done in sketchup (and only 2 of the 46 components were "bad" when it came to slicing, with sketchup's famouse holes)

Comparison with a Tavor 21 (if you know how big one of them is!)

Multiple internal components

Multiple internal components

and becuse that may be a bit too extreme, lets flip it back round to the more boring, a phone case. was (was) enjoying pokémon GO so made a phone case to reflect that joy. thankfully the phone case is still providing joy!

Nice! Feel free to share what you make, but a grenade launcher is not something we would very easily feature ;)

How do grenades work in airsoft? Do they actually 'explode'?

they are small gas canisters which you put gas in, and then anywhere from 80 - 200 bb's in the front. when the button on the back is hit, it releases the gas shooting all the bb's out. so nothing flies out the end, just LOADS of little plastic pinging everyhwre with a very assertive pop!

still, its so far in the early stage, and while individual components work well, it all needs loads of tweaking to get working. i was inspired by someone who made an airsoft China lake grenade launcher, all by hand. i was blown away!

'I was blown away'. Pun intended? :p

Cool! I always wondered how such a grenade worked in airsoft. Does a regular hand-grenade work in a similar way or does that not exist in air soft?

Stupid question, are you suppose to clean up all the bb's afterwards or how do you prevent to an area to be completely filled up with bb's if there are a couple of grenades in a battle? :p

There are eco friendly bb balls, for almost all of the 'arenas/battle camps' it's mandatory. I only went once with mine, it was a blast (literally).

some go from putting blank 9mm rounds in that go bang, some are more like fireworks, some are like fireworks with dried peas in them that scatter everywhere (for bio degradable-ness) and others are very similar to the 40mm grenade, so filled with gas, and then spray bb's out. of course these cant be thrown at people, being big and heavy, most sites say either drop them through a window or doorway, or roll them across the floor

Here is my camera holder for ocular microscope photography.

DSC00175.thumb.JPG.618185a44d876e11490045f86e82ca6d.JPG

I needed to remove some material to make the camera fit and operational.

It fits for my compact camera and it is a cheap way to get photos out of a microscope. The quality of the photos are a little less then you can see by the eye but that depends on the camera fine details can not be seen. They are a little better then the camera from the microscope.

Hello.

I find your idea very simple and clever.

Can this design only hold one type of camera ?

I would love to see a typical photo taken in your system.. could you show us something ? How the camera lenese focuse on two points and not show the blue outter edge.

That would be cool.

Thank you.

Ian
