Moorish lacework vases
Velocity Painting #VelocityPainting

These vases have come out great. Pushing the high speed parts of the print on a single-walled vase print really emphasises the patterns and these vases look like pieces of art. Think 3D-printed lacework.

You might want to look at the images in the large.

The pink one is translucent PLA (from M3D), the other two are Faberdashery opaques. The vase is my own design.

The (I presume) pressure effects that cause under-extrusion on the fast parts and over extrusion on the slow parts are what this is all about. Put one of these vases to your lips and you can breath easily – definitely for dried arrangements only.

But the look. Oh My :)

210C for the M3D translucent pink, 220C for the Faberdashery opaques. 12mm/s low velocity, 50mm/s high velocity, 0.5mm single perimeter, 200mm high, just over two hours print time. #3Dprinting

Last year my old eBike's hub motor gears broke down. First I tried to replace the upper part of the gears with a POM part but that failed after 300km of driving (last picture).

But now having a 3D printer I wanted to give it another shot so I bought some Taulman Alloy 910 and printed these. Getting it to stick well to my Dauerdruckplatte was a bit tricky, the first layer stuck well but it curled after just 2 layers. Since I don't own glue-stick I put down a raft of PETG and swapped filament after that.

I was very surprised at the hardness of this filament and cut my finger with the sharp teeth of one gear.
I'm not sure how well they'll hold up in Berlin traffic but my first test drive went well.

I needed a candle stick holder but didn't find one I liked so I've designed one myself. Printed in PETG on #CarbonoidD1 #0001 with 0.6 mm #Volcano hotend and 0.2 mm layers. You can download the design from #YouMagine:

So the structural parts for the AX-02 came in today and this happened. I had a small derp on the top bracket idler holes being too small, but that's now been fixed and I'm printing the replacements off now. It's going together like a charm..

Before few months I asked here for advice for a 3D printing design with Bosh Rexroth linear modules that I bought as bargain. Many of you advised me that with this modules I should try to make machine that could mill and print. So far I manage to make it mill now I need to make it print as well. The biggest challenge was a machine that could mill and print as no matter same movement both operation are a bit different. Printing is requiring fast speed/fast acceleration low inertia movements. Mill require rigid and high mass mechanics that is capable to accept the forces of milling without bending and flexing too much. So I decide at the end to choose top Gantry crane design and to try to address both requirements with some success. So here is the result:

Speed: 100mm/s
Acceleration: 200mm/s2
Max movement x/y/z: 370/370/250mm
Price so far: 3500$+

And again I am asking for your opinion on the result.3d printing is still under development and I am wondering should I try to convert Mach3 to also print or to make separate controller for this task and switch between both operations.

The great thing about standards is there are so many to choose from.

The +Printr bot​ board's power connector is almost identical to the 12V extra connector on an ATX power supply, except for being exactly backwards.

Sigh. My #Frankenbot is going to make Frankenstein's monster look like a GQ model.

Got my first printer a few days ago and have already made working flutes. I'm experimenting with compact coiled chambers similar to the Renaissance rackett instrument. The big one sounds halfway decent, but I know there are some things I can try with the design to make it sound better. Anyone else making instruments?

Another test/want print with a 0.2 nozzle and 0.08 mm layers. This is fresh before cleanup. Should look slick when done. ^^
