A fresh 3D printing noob

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

A big hello from another noob in the UK :D

Recently got into the world of 3D printing and got hold of a Ultimaker 2:)

My main use for the printer will be prototyping RC parts for a variety of projects I'm working on and have planned for the future.

So far I've just done a few test prints and used this forum to help me dial in the settings ...... I feel getting there now and I appreciate Its not a plug and play platform. But If it was easy it would be boring ;)

I'm sure I will have a few hicups across the way so bare with me if I post a few questions lol ...... I promise I will read the topics first before spamming the forum with questions everyone asks.

I'm looking forward to the endless possibilities this awesome tool will open up to me :)

Thanks for the welcome :)

Its all boring cubes atm while I play with different settings to see what happens. I have a 1.2m long RC body I'm going to print out in sections and glue together. Its going to take some serious printing time lol

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
