So with an FDM 3D printer you can only print on top of what is already there. Printing on thin air is simply going to result in a mess.

Someone ought to tell my M3D Micro that :-) #3dprinting  #m3dmicro

Straight off my M3D Micro, so with no cleaning up, the detail is pretty amazing for a figurine that stands just 5cm tall. Cool. #3dprinting

My M3D Micro works straight out-of-the-box! No setup or calibration needed after its trip from the US. Really pleased. Here's my second-ever print, with no tidying of the frilly bits, straight off the printer. I think it looks pretty decent. #3dprinting

They're getting good enough now that they're perfectly capable of running though Uncanny Valley.
 
See Spot the robot dog run; Spot runs fast
This is how it starts: you feel bad seeing the robot "dog" get kicked, and the next thing you know it's nipping at your heels, pushing you back to work.

Some issues with stringing (which I can fix) and the filament is thinning as it is printing (which needs me to slow the filament feed speed, which I don't think I can do with the current software), but Wow! That really looks like a piece of wooden doll's house furniture. And those horizontal arms had no support whatsoever.

I'll clean it up some more and glue the two halves together, then it's bound for my daughter's dolls house.

Printed on my M3D Micro. Low quality (200 micron), low infill, PolyWood filament. About 2.5 hours to print. #3dprinting   #m3dmicro

Indeed I have – looks pretty incredible. If there's no dirty great gotcha then it it'll be a game changer.

Started printing the spool holder at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:705345

I might be getting the hang of it now. I'm genuinely not convinced the quality of the printed part could be much better. It looks funky in real life with the infill showing through the translucent plastic, looks accurately crafted and feels impressively solid. Easily the equal of anything I've seen come off the Ultimaker 2 at work.

Chuffed. #m3dmicro   #3dprinting

Warning: you may need to be at least a bit of a camera buff to enjoy this.
Warning: if you are, this is painfully funny.
