anyone here into 3D printing?what do you print?
>>769804Shitty little tanks and figures
Dildos and butt plugs. I normally sell them to Maya users since they like getting screwed.I use Maya too, though.
Mosin Clips for a friend since he'd have to pay like 12€ for a single metal one and printing is faster, cheaper and easier.Also planning on printing Designs and making leather patches from that, maybe open a little Shop or smth idk yet
>>769804Small functional partsMore artistic shit I've made in blenderRandom ideas for product designsMy next project is going to be a full sized chair, because I've gotten access to a 1000x1000x500 printer with a 3mm nozzle. So that will be very exciting.
>>769804Going to print some parts for my new ITX case. Finishing the modeling right now. Going to have 2 doors held to the frame by small magnets and have windows made of hand bent polycarbonate plastic sheets.And no, I don't print butt plugs!
>>770080This made me lol.But also... fuck you
>>769804I usually 3D print my sculptures
>>771162awesome! i always wanted those little jews
>>769804PCB shapes so that I can confirm that the final product will fit into the enclosure, 1:285 scale figurines for a wargame i'm putting together and random shit people want me to print (usualy big-ish models like handle for this, box for that, etc.).It's fun playing with different nozzle sizes and watching a plastic poo dispenser build an object.
>>770080kek. Try to have positive thoughts. All that money Autodesk is squeezing out of Maya subscribers has gone to a good cause. NOT upgraded code or tool development, good god no. The CEO of Autodesk gets to play lots of rounds of golf at country clubs that cost $100k+ to join though...so there's that.
>>771162selling jew sculpture?
>>769807sounds like a friend of mine, only he's making models to assemble
not sure if you know but in case you don't there's a thread about this over /diy/
>>770080That shit has got to be incredibly toxic, especially under 98 degrees
>>7731671) he's joking2) there are a wide range of materials that can be 3d printed3) sex toys tend to be silicon because it's non-reactive, durable-ish, and soft4) if it's plastic it's only toxic if burned, you're surrounded by plastic and it's only toxic if injested, a greater concern would be the rigidity and whether the porous or irregular surface would house bacteria
>>773206Oh that's a relief. Blender user btw.
>>773231looks good but shit paint job, need a finer brush
I'm looking to have something 3d printed for myself but I have a feeling all the 3d printing services online are a scam, anyone here in the uk able, and more importantly willing, to print something for me? Alternatively can anyone give any advice?
>>769804Things.. you know..
>>773700But also premade stuff from the web.Or little utility things like smartphone holder or stuff.
>tfw you'd love to make translucent or even transparent and really nice looking objects but just fucking can't deal with all the bullshit involved with SLA printing and its resins
>>773232Lower receivers FTW. I wonder what kind of service life they provide made from common resins.
>>773700what printer is this? Would one still use cura for resin printing?Also anyone know what the fuck these are?
>>773877I used the Anycubic Photon S for that print.And no, Cura is for FDM printing.For Resin prints Chitubox is a software I'd say is comparable commonly used like cura for FDM printing.Not quite sure what causes the problem on your screenshot.But It kinda looks like the model itself might not have had clean geometry.Don't think I've seen holes like this before.Maybe a useful site for when your prints have issues is this one:https://www.simplify3d.com/support/print-quality-troubleshooting/But this is for when the print failed in some way, not the slicing..
>>773877corrupt file?did you load directly from GCODE or slice from an stl?
>>773376Can anyone help me or point me to somewhere that can?
>>774293what exactly gives you that feeling? 3d printing is not rocket science. shapeways worked for me.
>>769804anyone know why my print has shitty cylinders and bridges on the tops? do i need to lower extruder temps or wut
>>771162I see you're a man of culture as well
>>774302I meant more a scam in how they're priced, 6 pounds for a small thing seems stupid
>>774304same guy here, how do i fix my prints. when i print small diameter cylinders they get stuck to the nozzle and get broken off and carried by the nozzlehalp
>>774304this is the one im doing now, same issue qith can linders getting broken off
>>774304Those tips look very thin. As the printer gets higher on the Z axis, the prints become more distorted due to the model jiggling when the printer moves. You might consider printing the foils of the tie fighter flat and then flying them to the pod. I'm not sure what happened with your dino model. Maybe slow down the print? Temps ok?
>>773877You have coasting turned on, that's showin you where it stops and how far to ooze out the rest of the filament. It's usually not a problem and is mostly made for stringing issues or catching issues that results in it being pulled off the plate. If the print looks weird just turn off coasting
>>774304>>774728Cooler temperature will help with the distortion, slower print will help with stringing, Z hop if it's catching moving from one side to the other. Also, use a higher infill for the cylinders, in Cura make a support blocker, put it over the tips, select the option that looks like the bottle is half full on the sidebar, select "overlap settings" making SURE you've got your support cube selected, click change setting, search infill percent, change to 100.Get the temp test from Thingiverse to see where it stops melting and go from there
>>774729Use tree supports, only touching build plate, should print fine but if it keeps catching turn on Z hop and it shouldn't pull it loose. Also make sure it's sticking good to the build plate, gluessticks, painters tape and hairspray can help out with the wiggle Stringing is bad though, bump up your retraction a mm or two
>>773236Stop upvoting, idiot
>>773232Is it functional?
>>773700Jesus Christ, anon.
Name one 3d printer to start
>>774793Thanks man. The print ended up ok. I will remember this term.
>>773376One last desperation bump
>>775032Ender 3 Pro, if you want to future proof it then get the V2 but currently there's better mods for Pro out there. It also works fine out the box, but if you want to do something large like a helmet I'd advise the Sidewinder. >>775098Sorry, I've never used online printing services. I'm sure the ones on Thingiverse work, but their prices do seem high.
>>774304You need a dual cooling fan.
>>769804Yea. I print mostly utilities/parts for around the house stuff. Phone stands. Phone cases. Gun stands. I might try a lower one of these days, since its freedom approved in America*. Currently my Ender 3 is incapable of printing anything. The bed seems to have warped in the middle. I replaced the magnetic pad with a tempered glass bed. Got one good print out of the coating on top of it, immediately started spaghettying afterwards and flipping it to the pure glass side only made things worse. I guess I need to buy a glue stick and do this old school but god dammit I do not want to. I spent literally 3 hours fucking with it and at this point I'll probably just buy a Prusa Mini so I don't have to fuck with leveling my bed ever again.
>>774304Don't forget to enable retraction. Consider z-hop.
I mostly print pre-designed models from the net. I've printed several masks for myself and my son, and printed 2 for sale.I also print upgrades for my Transformers, and have started designing small stuff myself using Tinkercad - eventually I'll learn to use Blender.
>>776751OMG I'M GONNA CONSOOOOOOOM
been trying to do a fire nation ship
>>774304Wtf i want 3d printer now
>>774304Why don't you just print it in parts that you then assemble after printing?Would increase the quality since shit doesn't wobble around that far up.
>>773206So you can actually 3D print sex toys with different material that don't cause any harm?I see a potential job right now...
How foolish would it be to print this in regular PLA? I don't want to harm my dick.
>>780946what the fuck
>>780946your brain is already harmed
>>771161>>771162How do you get them to come out so smooth?
>>780946Pla should be okay, but i would sand it down to make sure its not sharp
>>780946Print it in ABS plastic, then do an acetone vapour treatment to smooth out the rough edges.
Made my son a Green Lantern ring in Blender for Christmas. Have a local guy who runs a 3D print shop out of his house who’s going to run it for me. Printing Blender models is a stone bitch, because it’s so easy to end up with non-manifold edges and other junk that the printer rejects.
>>771162Yo can I get a link to a file for this?
>>782571>taking computer screenshots with your iphone
>>773877Check your Mesh Fixes -> Maximum Resolution andMesh Fixes ->Maximum Deviationyour model may have too many polygons
does anyone here know if an anycubic mega zero is good for a beginner that just wants to print gundam model parts?
