Did a quick paint of last print.

No post work at all, just painted it the way it came out of the printer.

Painted with brush and waterbased oils in one take from top to bottom.

Strange way to pint but as it takes so long to dry, painting one color at the time was no option if it was to actually be quick :)

Some partial nudity so don't click on the images unlike you can handle it.

I have some waterproof sandpaper laying around,

Would that be a good idea?

This guy shows what happens with bronzefill after a night in a rotating drum with aluminium screws!

ITS NICE!

What I'm thinking: get an empty jar, some screws, some rotating stuff and get going!

Cheers!

You can try with this waterproof sandpaper !

Don't forget to polish with steel wool or use a king of rock polishing machine like this guy !

Remember Remember :D

My latest prints just keep breaking. I've been trying to print movable objects in single print:

The Maker faire robot: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:331035

The Legs from Adabot: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:367226%20The%20legs%20part

 

I think the last successful print is definitely the Ultimaker Handle, which is a huge upgrade :D

I've been experimenting with Innofil3d's Innosolve today. It's a filament that can be dissolved in water. The first print didn't go all that well...

But after a few more test prints this was the best result I got. I didn't even have to soak it in water, it just came off the print by itself as I tried to rip off the loose bits. Unfortunately cura doesn't have an option to create a solid interface layer so I simply paused the print after it had printed 2-3 solid layers with innosolve and switched to PLA. If this could be made to work with dual extrusion it might be quite promising...

Nice! Yes thats what I would like to see too. At least with your feeder its easy to change filament in the middle of a print. Any news on why the pause at height isn't working on UM2?

pause at height is working for me on latest firmware, i tried it on previous firmware and it did not work, i then upgraded and did a print and it stopped at 5mm i thought my print was corrupted and aborted it, i did this twice before i realized that pause at height was suddenly working and i had left the plugin active from weeks ago :???:

If i had read the readout it would have told me, but me being me i aborted without reading the display that said resume LOL

We @ 3d hubs eindhoven had a presentation from Hilde Sevens from Autodesk, where afterwards she also mentions that they are working on/ already have ( need to verify) an integration for printable joints (!)

This may be what you are looking for!

If I have time, I'll dig thorugh the autodesk apps ( or mail Hilde, for that matter)

Cheers!

I already did some pre assembled parts and also separated ones with Shapeways in the past but when you have powder it become far easier.

Therefore, having dual extrusion and filament like Innofill coould make an equivalent for pre assembled parts and hard to clean supports just like powder does.

Ive recently finished the wirbelwind turret for the panzer 4 chassis. The chassis itself is still on my desk in peices, so i borrowed my other one for display purpose!

the finished chassis will have accomodation for boxes containing spare barrels at the engine ventilation on the sides of the engine deck.

For the interested reader, the wirbelwind was intended to support the panzer division with much needed airsupport. The wirbelwind, equiped with quadmounted 20mm flak38 guns, excelled at engaging low flying aircraft aswell as light ground vehicles. The combined rate of fire was about 1600 rounds/min, which was requiered to engage low and fast flying fighters, this explains the open topped design, the guns produced massive amounts of smoke!

The gun was manned by the gunner, training and firering the guns, aswell as two loaders with acces to about 3200 rounds of ammo.

The wirbelwind (and ostwind) was later intended to be replaced by the closedtop kugelblitz.

I haven't used any sanding at all, only steel wool, and only for a few minutes, I haven't found it hard at all.

I actually do have a vibratory tumbler I use for jewellery, but I have't tried it for Bronzefill.
