Printing "Christ Unlimited" (makkink of)

- Print

This is another post about printing something BIG.
By "BIG" here I mean a long print time and how it can drastically be reduced by having a good print strategy.
Or how a 12h print can be reduced down to 7h without any compromise on print quality.

Printing something BIG again

- Print

This is the next example in my "Printing something BIG" serie.
I could have printed this 36 cm tall object in one go. My printer (a Creality CR10S Pro) is big enough.
But cutting it in parts saves printing time and material.
So once again it's something I strongly recommend.

Fuck you!

Printing something BIG (Makkink of)

- Print

Printing big objects is something I wanted to do since a long time.
But 3d printing is such a slow process that it discouraged me until now (I have some free spare time).
Still it's important to plan ahead to reduce printing time to a minimum and avoid support structures as much as you can.

3D print : generated support with MeshMixer

- Software

I've been using MeshMixer since the very first release to mix some 3D models together.
Since then, MeshMixer has become an Autodesk product and is still under development.

I decided to give the last release a try and to have a closer look at the new features and especially the ability to create supports for 3D printed models...

Recherche pour une structure de support

Dans pas mal de pièces dessinées par Gaël la structure de support est incluse.
C'est une idée que j'avais déjà explorée avec cet objet.

Hier tard dans la nuit j'ai commencé à gamberger au "support idéal" (ma femme n'étant pas là, peut être ?).

Il est quand même 04h30 et y'a une "PistonbaseV4" qui s'imprime !
C'est pas raisonnable... Mais c'est à cause de cette idée de structure de support là !
Du coup je m'suis pas couché...

Si vous savez pas ce qu'est un "support" ou un "slicer", çà va vous faire chier !
Mais y'a des jolies images...

UP! printed robot hand

- Hands

Some months ago I encountered Hairygael that had printed a fantastic robot hand using his BfB 3000.

Having no luck with the Rapman due to warping, I decided to print it with the UP! printer.

It turned out very well except...

How to get rid of some excess stringing ?

- Spare parts

When you print using the support feature with a diferent temp setting for the support, the print head will constantly go to its rest position to change its temperature.
Doing so, it will deposit some stringing on the printed object.

Let's see if we can manage to find a solution for that...

Testing a BfB3000 with dual extruders

- BfB 3000

For a complete week I have a dual head BfB3000 to test at home.
So let's see what this printer can do...

My second print : let's try the support feature

- Print

I'd like to see how the Rapman is going to handle a more complex object with overhangs...
For that second print I choosed this 3D scan object because I like it :
