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

Not as smooth as I would have liked. But it was super cheap filament and layer lines do tend to show more on slanted surfaces. This was done a little while back when I was just starting to really to try and lock down my settings too. Just now thought about posting them.

I printed some abstract art this weekend using about 200g of NylonX.  Now I just need to build a display case.

    What was it supposed to be? A phone case?

    Hi Folks,

     

    I've never been posting any prints (model) I'd made here, but this time I've simply have to share.. Right now I'm working in Japan, far away from home in Norway.

    So I have no access to my printer, but my two sons have..

    Anyway, the older one sent me a picture of a print he made. To my surprise he made a 3D drawing of the old Hansa faucet we have on the kitchen sink, that's have a shower in combination with the faucet. This one is now kind of old, since 83.. so about 35 years I'll say. Anyway, the plastic housing of the shower part does not work very well any more and spreading water all over the place, -kind of awaiting to be replaced.. 

    So yesterday I've got a picture of the old shower device together with a gray printed copy he made as an replacement for the old one.

     

    Not just that, he also sent a small video of how the new shower adapter worked.

    So he told me he is looking for some filament that's food qualified and can be used for producing this kind of parts for drinking water.

     

    He used PLA that's the stuff doctors using for support inside "our" body during surgery.  The PLA dissolve inside body and leave no trace. -Is there something I'm missing here?

     

    Anyway, I'm impressed by those young guys, they just makes those things easily like that.

     

    Some says, seeing is believing.

     

    Well, another way of creating valuable parts using a 3D printer.

     

    Sorry folks, not allowed to upload a 1 Mg byte video, so  had to skip.  :/

    I've almost skipped the whole thing due to this latter..

     

    Thanks

     

    Regards


    Torgeir.

    PLA? Are you sure? Could it be PVA? That one dissolves in water and is quite bio-compatible (but not for all people - some show an allergic reaction).

    Hi Kmanstudios,

     

    Thanks for the flowers to the guys. :)

     

    And yes, PLA is the filament that's seems to be more and more used for medical issues.

    Just have a look here:

    And here:

    I'll think we're just in an early stage here.

     

    Thanks

     

    Regards

    We printed some laptop stands (wedges).  Good news is they just BARELY fit on the buildplate - diagonally.  We need (2) per laptop, so I decided to stack them with a bit of PVA in between for a tasty PLA PVA sandwich!

    That is clever! And, yeah, is it not amazing that you can easily start to find projects that will just fill up your printing area?

     

    Edit: PVA sammich...nom nom nom....mmmmmmmm

    Doesn't he need something that might is able to withstand hot water too, something more heat resistant?

    The S5 knocked this one out of the park. I made a crane (1 meter long when at full extension). Client was happy and now producing two official copies.

    Making a couple of changes to make the final models be spot on.

     

    Edit: Made with UM White TPLA.
