This year's Christmas present: Well, not entirely printed but also some laser cut aluminum, magnets, a high-power LED and some SMD electronics (oh dear, my eyes are getting old...). Automatically switches on when upright and lasts for 4 hours with rechargeable batteries.

    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

    I decided to kick it up a notch and take a go at printing one of the pair of glasses that I designed. They turned out surprisingly well, considering it printed without support. I'm also printing some molds for the custom lens for these, which will allow me to vacuum mold them out of 2mm polycarbonate for a perfect fit. this is the first prototype of 5 versions. I'm loving this printer!

    Nice work! I'm curious, how did you orient it for printing?

    Printed a bunch of knife handles that I designed to work with my favorite puukko blade:

    Here is a pic of the finished print. I literally hit print, adjusted a few settings on the printer during the bottom layers, then went to bed. Woke up in the morning to find this sitting on the buildplate. No Support inside the lens as you can see.

    I did clean it up with a dremel and some wet sanding.

    how clean was the surface after you removed the support? I'm finding the surface where the supports were are usually pretty awful, but your look pretty good.

    The print came out amazing with very little cleanup from the support, except where the nose piece is. That required needle nose pliers to remove support and heavy Dremel sanding. The arms came out with a minor spur to sand out every 5-8 mm or so.

    Awesome! Now it's just a wait till someone prints out a full ironman suit.

     

     

    The official maker did it though

    Not my design, but an awesome print nonetheless:

    Hope the pictures come through, they are from my dropbox.

    ( Edit: pictures didn't came through. Is there any way i can show the pictures directly from dropbox instead of linking to dropbox?

    I did about 3 hours to remove the support and remove almost all of the retraction caused stuff.

    Tank print after this one failed horribly though. Meshmixer didn't do it for the 70mb file someone wanted me printed :(

    Now printing another tank:

    Amazing work!

    How did you finish/paint the thing? The finish looks fantastic!

    That's a fantastic paint job! I would like to know how you did the finish as well.

    Aside from the basic robot and Coffins cube on the supplied sd, this is my first attempt at my own print. I scanned the large red dragon toy with a Sense scanner, and loaded the result into Cura with no further adjustments. I think the result was surprisingly good - but the trickiest bit was trimming away the supporting plastic!

    Hey guys, I painted the Iron Giant using an Iron based paint, which you can rust using home made concoctions such as vinegar and bleach. I also used a dark brown oil wash, thinned with white spirits and wiped off the access. Finally, I use a product called "rub 'n buff" along the edged and high points to make it look like exposed metal.

    ..Awesome!

    The mesh was made with a scanner at a fair in Veldhoven. I had to spend some time making it better, but the result is superb!

    (not forget to mention the help from the guys at this forum to tweak the printer, it can be improved, but i really like it already;) )

    Cheers,

    Lennart

    Made a simple portable iPad stand, usable with a 8mm rod or a pencil.

    printed with a silver PLA, that gives darker and lighter bands during printing, I don't know why, but it looks great :)

    It looks like it is a 'late' ornament for your Christmas tree, but I wonder how you are going to keep the 'M' in place ;)

    I finally got around to testing the Meshmixer support. I went with the Voronoi D Tower by Dizingof. And after 50253 retractions, 2.1 million lines of Gcode and 10+ hours of print time here's the result.

    voronoi D tower 01

    voronoi D tower 02

    voronoi D tower 03

    I have to say I really like this type of support for this type of print. It breaks away MUCH easier than traditional support and doesn't leave much behind. Of course the busy model helps hide the imperfections. The print could've been cleaner if I printed slower and with thinner layers. This was 0.15mm layers @ 50mm/s.
