@Peiprjs7+I've designed the parts i'm gonna be 3D printing for the #hardware-party. I used a pre-existing model for the screen support, and modified the I/O holes, as well as tweaking the base. I'll start printing it tonight, probably, and I'll most likely film it using my old iPhone 5S. Hopefully it can do it.
@Sam015 minute calibration cube! (That’s quite fast)
Calibrating my 3D printer with larger nozzles for use in large prints for #hardware-party!
@SanjayNagesh-U03LZ42C3B80#10-days-in-public day 5/10- was planning my sprig case out and I want it colored but the challenge is I have to make each piece of the case like a puzzle and attach it and the nozzle of the 3d printer which I am using isn't precise/thin enough so I think I'm gonna just go plain. Still have to start doing the 3d cad part but yeah I have a designs DN stuff in my mind
@Sam0Designed and Printed a pen/pencil mount for my older, kinda broken 3D printer. The gantry still works so I’m hoping to put it to use somehow.
@DevIos0Hii there! Had a awesome hackathon event today, thanks for hackbank for sticker and fund!!, although we had snow and train being cancled we got 40 people to join in our event, side note the 3d print medal looked great psst @toby, here a 3d print of yesterday's model for now as I am tired to get all the hackzthon event , I will post once local news has publish it on there site!
@DevIos03d printing those model's, it looked okay on software idk how the actual 3d print looks, hopefully good else F :roo-love:
@DevIos0Done with 3d modelling award for hackathon!! , got access to university 3d printers, so tomorrow's printing timeeeee :poggers::duck-dance::dance:
@DevIos0Coffee time with God dam cold weather, did custom hoodie order my god 1000$ for just 25 hoodie request , swedish is expensive, other then that done with 3d model of prize which we will 3d print on Monday, peace out :roo-love:
@Sam03DBenchy! There are some little layer shift and salmon skin issues. Hopefully I’ll be able to fix some of those soon!
@Sam0An Ender-3 Pro just appeared on my front porch today!!! Excited. 👀
@Sam0Today I experimented with using my broken 3D printer (one of the cheap, poor quality ones) as a plotter to draw stuff. The results are so much better than what I expected.
@msw0day 8 of #10-days-in-public – took a break from the CNC project & worked with @belle to upgrade the extruder on the office 3d printer. the new printer parts were printed on the previous extruder. now that we have the new component in, the printed can run about 3x faster & up to 2x more detail
@KaraMassie-U032A2PMSE90#10-days-in-public tiny update while I wait for silicone to arrive. Took the 3d printed rabbit I'm using as a prototype and had to sand it smooth. Maybe I had my 3d print settings too low rez ?
@KaraMassie-U032A2PMSE90day 3 of #10-days-in-public . As I said in day2, my object was too big and is going to require a lot of expensive silicone, so I'm trying a smaller object as a test. @msw taught me how to make my first 3d print here at HQ. I feel so lucky to have ppl around willing to teach and to have stuff like this to mess around with!@ella0For day two of #10-days-in-public, I worked on assembling a mostly 3D printed CNC machine with Max and Caleb.
@msw0I’m learning how to use a CNC machine by building one!
For day 1 of #10-days-in-public, my goal is to finish acquiring the pieces. The metal and electronics all arrived, and the last 3d printed pieces are printing right now. I’ve never done something like this before & want to have everything laid out to start assembling tomorrow. Also watched some videos on how others assembled their CNCs www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D5m80r2leY
@msw0Just finished 3d printing the largest single piece in my CNC project! It's hefty & took about 41 hours. Next I'll need to sand it down and get the fuzz off
@m040The plastic housing on my mom's key broke, so I designed and 3d printed a new one! It's print in place - no glue, fasteners, or clips involved, so it should last a while
@jasonaa0almost done with this design! i just need to add tabs so i’ll be able to put it together whenever i make it irl. i’ll probably do a test of 3d printing the 3 parts (top cover, bottom cover, bumper thingy), but my end goal is to send the cover files off to be laser cut out of acrylic so i can still see into the hub once the case is all together 🤞
@jasonaa0finally got around to tuning my 3d printer! i have been pushing this off for a while but now I have a couple prints for projects and friends that actually need to be of good-ish quality. superslicer makes it super easy to do since I can generate all sorts of calibration jobs and send them to my octoprint instance instantly. it'll probably only take 2-3 hours of my time and most of that is me doing something else while I wait for prints to finish up.
@msw0I've been so tired of staying in my room all week I stayed up late putting together a new component for my printer: a light bar! Now it can take timelapses of its prints even overnight. Just queued up and overnight print and will post a comparison in the morning once its done
@ella0The 3D printer at HQ is set up with OctoPrint, a web interface for controlling the printer. It’s hooked up to a webcam configured to take a time lapse recording of each print. This is a 1-hour print in 7 seconds!@ella0@msw showed me how to use the 3D printer and I printed this wallet thing!
@zrl0These past few months I've been getting into 3D printing and yesterday I replaced my hotend (the part the melts the plastic) with the new Revo Six system from E3D. This new system makes it way easier to swap extruder nozzles, so you can easily extrude with plastic widths of 0.2mm for normal parts, 0.1mm for small parts, or 0.4mm for big parts. This dramatically cuts down on printing time for bigger parts that need a bigger nozzle. It also opens the door for printing much more precise parts (I want to make 3D printed business cards).
To replace the hotend, I had to order the new Revo Six in the mail, unscrew a bunch of parts of my extruder to get the current hotend out, put the new Revo Six in, rewire the hotend cables into the control box, and then recalibrate the machine.
I'm proud of myself for doing this, and definitely procrastinated once the new parts came in because I was afraid I'd break the machine. But now it works and check out my first 3D printer part using a 0.8mm nozzle!
@zrl0I'm in the process of trying to learn Autodesk Inventor so I can design and print my own 3D parts for projects. Been looking for tutorials to follow online, and found this PDF. Completed the first challenge in it tonight!
I'd like to figure out how to make the design process more elegant. I kept getting tripped up on trying to center lines using constraints, which I didn't see a button in Inventor for. My sketches are really messy for this, but I'm happy my final result at least looks like what it's supposed to!@jasonaa0hit a pretty big milestone with this project (tl;dr 3d printer management system like octoprint but for dremel printers) - the backend can read frames from IP/USB cameras and serve them as jpegs from an api endpoint. code is a little wack but it works! next is streaming video but that hopefully shouldn’t be too hard
@zrl0Completed second attempt at a multicolor 3D print using a single extruder. Think it's looking pretty good!
Does anyone want it? DM me your address. I'll mail it to the first person in the US (because of shipping cost) who wants it@zrl0First attempt at doing a multicolor 3D print. It's not looking very good yet, but it'll get there! To do this, I had to manually edit the g-code to add the M600 instruction to prompt a filament change because I only have one extruder. Trying to figure out how to get the slicer to do it for me
@zrl0First time adding magnets to a 3D firstname.lastname@example.orgSmallish ship, I 3d printed a molecule/metal organic framework I generated for my science fair project, and like how it turned out!
@jasonaa0making a raycast extension that lets you manage/start prints from a connected octoprint server! :3d-printer::raycast: ✨
@ferferite0The joys of 3D printing, if you get it wrong the first time, print another one. The phone should be finished tomorrow(without the camera since it will take a month or two for it to arrive)
@ferferite0Played around with blue transparent PETG filament and learned a few things. That ironing the last layer is sooooo nice, it feels like glass, so smooth and that colored transparent filaments might not be the best to print "clear" stuff but it has such a nice shine to it. Defiantly going to print the phone with this stuff. Also because this is a 20x20mm cube, you can't expect much opacity with colored clear filament.
