Re: Sharing STL/OpenSCAD source code

I just looked at Pinshape... wow, that is scripting gone wild. I'm sure I would piss off a whole bunch of people putting my stuff there. The reason why I was asking about possible ways of improving the reach of posts is that my previous attempt at doing this last year (basically, making a publicly a...

Sharing STL/OpenSCAD source code

I'm not sure which section in the forums I should put this. So, I'm trying to figure out how to share my STL/OpenSCAD files for all the cosplay props I've 3D printed over the years. There's two parts to the problem: 1. What is a good way to host a site as a repository of these files, or if there is ...

Re: Hot end leaking brownish-blackish plastic onto print

I would like to give an update. After tightening the nozzle slightly, I no longer have this issue. I guess I should be a bit more brave in tightening things. Thanks for letting us know how you fixed it, it is a good one to remember. I think it would be helpful if the instructions can list a torque ...

Re: Supports get knocked over

You might want to model a raft just underneath the supports (not necessarily underneath the actual piece themselves). I had to deal with a similar problem, in this case approximately 9 hours into a print, when the support moved just enough that it caused backpressure problems and a nozzle clog. Havi...

No, I used a new nozzle (namely, the one that came with the new hotend).

Re: Hot end leaking brownish-blackish plastic onto print

Okay, I'm tightening it and see if that helps. The brownish goop usually ends up a couple of hours into a print, so I should know pretty soon if that helps.

Re: Hot end leaking brownish-blackish plastic onto print

Nope, the ABS was white, and I purge at 230C with PLA to get it out of the nozzle.

Hot end leaking brownish-blackish plastic onto print

A couple of weeks ago, I've had to replace my hot end due to a thermistor "accident". Now, this hot end appears to leak black molten plastic onto my prints when I print with PLA. It does not happen with ABS (but only like 5% of my printing is with ABS, it may not be a significant sample). ...

Re: 3D printed Parts for my DIY embroidery mchine

Sounds like you need one of those Brother Dream Frames http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaIj14Kn1EM That's a frame for a longarm quilting sewing machine. You can get variants of these (and their associated longarm sewing machine) that have "CNC quilting" abilities (the one that is at the Te...

Re: 3D printed Parts for my DIY embroidery mchine

I'd be interested myself to see what you come up with, as someone who owns a really expensive sewing/embroidery machine (I have one of those machines that has the optional embroidery module). I'm actually at the point where I'm actually seriously considering plunking down $$$$ for one of the profess...

MatterSlice in Repetier-Host?

I was wondering, as a curiosity, whether it is possible to run the MatterSlice slicer that is part of MatterControl with Repetier-Host. (Long story short, I've got a few parts that only slice correctly with MatterSlice, and I've been using Repetier-Host ever since abandoning the use of the MatterCon...

Christmas Cakes! Hahah she was my starter ship, but I've never seen a cosplay of her! I think it's really cool that you made the equipment and weapons. Yeah, I kind of got sick seeing all the Shimakazes/Amatsukazes/Fubuki-class/Yuudachis/Akagis and Kagas that I wanted to do something different (and...

Re: Hello from the Austin area

Yup, it was Samidare, although I designed the costume so I can quickly convert it to become Suzukaze if I wanted. I did the design work for the gun based on the art and some WWII-era blueprints that I dug up, and a friend of mine did the modeling for the torpedo launcher; I took his model and did a ...

Nope. It was from one of the Shiratsuyu-class destroyers. (Hint, it's not any of the ones with the black uniforms.)

Re: Hello from the Austin area

The main reason why I bought the printer was to print out hand-held Japanese WWII-era naval cannons and torpedo launcher backpacks for this one costume. I'm not exactly a stranger to 3D printing before this, but coming from a MakerBot (where they dumb things down) was quite a shock, as I had to get ...

Re: Hello from the Austin area

Oh, I mostly do anime and Japanese game costumes. I basically bought the Rostock because I was trying to make things bigger than my MakerBot could do.

I'll post some pictures tomorrow of what I've made with the printer so far. :D

Hello, everyone!

I'm a cosplayer who basically bought a Rostock Max just for the purpose of one costume. It's a pleasure to meet you all. ;)
