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

Hi Everyone

I want to share this model i made with and for my 4 year old nephew.

We designed it together during a drawing session where he tells me what he wants me to draw and so this special Rhino came into existence :)

 

Bauer Bernhard 5

It is printed in fabherdashery phosphorescent PLA.

The files are available for download on youmagine if you want to print your own.

    His feeder is probably on a custom spool holder behind the machine. He posted that somewhere else I think.

    Hello,

     

    I printed one of my project to 50% less than its size. I was able to checked that everything was as I wanted.

     

    Here are some pictures of what it looks like.

    a test I made just to see if UM printed parts fit to industrial standard parts.

    Ok, they do. The profile is a standard Item 40x40mm aluminum profile which I replicated in blue PLA.

    This gives space for new ideas.

    Just don't forget that you can't make the profiles longer than 200mm, and that they will easily break if you apply force to them. Narrows down the effective uses quite a bit...

    There are two types of this item profile. The one shown and printed by nudelmannrichter is the light one. The heavier one is also more sturdy. Maybe that one has some more use cases when printed... However, there are additional plastic parts for item profiles which might actually be printed.

    yep Jonny, u r right with lenght and strenght. I thought more about little applications for item constructed machines which use some of the item profile features. Item offers a lot stuff fitting into their system. I have constructed and bulit a lot of industrial machines with Item and Minitec and sometimes I thought " ok this tiny part should have an additional feature to make somethin in the machine easier". So maybe I will so some applications and see how they work.

    Another problem would be that it will be almost impossible to those a different orientation in the print space cause then the massive overhangs will require support structure that would be a nightmare to remove later.

    Right, Dimensioneer I used the light one here and also with infill. Doing this with the heavy profile, massive and maybe in a different material would provide much more stabilty and still staying quite light.

    Hey guys I know I've been MIA for a while, but I've been printing the entire time, almost gone through 2.5 spools of plastic already. I've been wearing my printed glasses for about 3 weeks now and they are the best glasses I've ever had. I never need to readjust them, and they stay on my head even if I'm doing a lot of sweaty physical activity. No one has noticed my glasses though, I suppose that's a testament to how well they printed out. I printed them out of black ABS plastic and have already broken a stem; no matter, I printed out a new one and was off to business.

    I printed out the robot and it turned out great on my first try:

    I also printed out my gyroscope thing, with a couple of modifications, I'll post that when the new frame is finished. Many of the other things are in progress prototypes.

    I didn't notice you were gone for the first week but after, what has it been? 3 weeks? 4 weeks? I don't know but I've been wondering for a while now. I'm glad you came back for a visit!

    That's some quality UM bot printing!

    Thanks guys, I'll be more considerate next time I drop off the face of the Earth :D

    I have some more prints I did while in limbo, I printed the gear skull here on Thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27388. I do biomechanics research and made this for my boss, it seemed very applicable.

    While printing the gear skull I also got the exciting opportunity to print these:

    XW7AO7X.jpg

    That thing on the right was jammed into the cavity the heater block sits resides in. I'm pretty sure what happened was that the gear dislodged from the bed, probably a leveling mistake on my part. I usually watch the skirt to make sure it is applied well to the printing bed, but I went to sleep while this last out of three pieces printed; so I didn't get to see the skirt being applied. it took about 1.5 hours. but I got everything cleaned up and almost perfect. I printed out a couple of cylinders to make sure everything was running smoothly.

    The printer itself has not caused any problems they were all oversights on my part. I had a 50 hour print fail half way through because the end of the filament was crossed under filament on the spool and it tightened up and prevented the spool from displacing filament. The filament was ground down and had severe kinks where it bends around the filament guides; telling me that there was quite a bit for force pulling on the filament before it started to grind down.

    great to see you back Aaron, that skull looks superb!

    I should print some update pics of my terminator arm. It`s almost done, apart from HOW to make it stand up .. lol

    Thanks Skint, there have been so many really great prints since I last checked this thread!! Every day I'm still amazed with what people are printing. Very excited to see the final terminator arm, looks like an intricate print.

    I printed a human foot skeletal structure last evening; someone at work needs one for their experiments. I essentially printed it with the Ultimaker support then glued all the articulating surfaces together with transparent epoxy then removed the support structure. The support structure was actually really easy to remove, epoxying the bony surfaces together was a different story.

    Awesome job Aaron, looks a piece of art sat on the print bed! I can imagine the patience you have to glue all those parts together.

    My termiinator arm has been a great first project, basically my first print lol. But I have glued parts, tapped and threaded parts, used a solder iron to weld parts, broken many parts and either reprinted or fixed parts, melted parts, scratched parts, Eaten parts haha... you name it this terminator print has helped me learn quite a bit about printing, so I am glad I have done it... I am also glad its almost finished :p The friend who its for I am sure will love it.

    That's exactly what I thought when it finished, I didn't want to disturb it because it looked so nice sitting there on the print bed and I wasn't sure how difficult my epoxy idea was going to be.

    Sounds like the final exam of prints, very comprehensive and difficult :mrgreen:; but sounds totally worth it. I bet you've got almost every printing challenge in that terminator arm. Your friend would be crazy not to be impressed!! BTW, I've gone to work with plastic in my beard several times; I wouldn't be surprised if I've eaten a good bit of plastic myself.

    LMAO Aaron, plastic in the beard :mrgreen: mind you, looking at your photo you could go to work with a full bird colony nesting in there haha !!

    I will take some pics of the arm later and post.

    Always cool to see how a bit of paint really transforms a print to something a lot more than the sum of its parts.

    I bought some Faberdashery silver filament and need to try it out to see how it looks. Amazingly, all those terminator parts are printed very fasy and .2 layers. Some of the parts are quite dodgy but they`ll do for a friends present, if I was to make another for myself, I would print much nicer. Had fun with it tho :)
