3D Print Test Project II
...definitely had some learnings and luck within this project. I was ready to start another 3d print job, when all of a sudden a power blackout occurred. Certainly the printer would have continued from the point where it stopped, but I was glad I didn't have to test this function.
Some learnings I had this time...
definitely need to think about model based separations for better post-production handling. Need thinner brushes and a magnifying glass. DEFINITELY need to build up my airbrush setup and create some sort of DIY exhaust hood (probably going to be my next project)...
Celts rule! 😅
First steps have been made... 3d printer has been set up and is working fine. So for testing I have choosen something fairly simple. Restoring our 70-year-old food processor which is still used by my wife on a daily base. You can still find machines like this in the museum or in our kitchen 😅.
Unfortunately the original lid and filler plug broke and were temporarily repaired and replaced with polyvinylchlorid based molding mass (Fimo). So I recreated these parts in Blender and printed them with though black PLA. Z layer height was quite rough at 0.2 mm. Took about 10 hours for one part using PVA as support material.
My new boss aka wife is quite pleased with the result and gave me the permission to continue with repairing our inventory 🤣. So if you got any beloved broke down things at home you want me to fix... just drop me a note.
My first blog post. Feels a bit odd creating this kind of digital diary. But if I keep doing this, it will be fun in a couple of years to scroll down and see how it all started. So here it is... thanks to Karma and work life hick ups, the Swabian Hobbit takes his step out of the door into the world of 3d printing. First steps... creating space and obtain a 3d printer.
