Re: SW help

Do you have much experience with the free and opensource software that exists? Say, Google Scatsup? I had formal training on Inventor about a decade ago (oh crap, longer than that), but haven't used it since then. I feel like I know the basics, but I just get lost in the free programs that I try at...

Re: A heel for a shoe, fly-screen stops and a folding knife

Why (just curious) not just design the part, subtract it from a filled in box and print the resultant mould before filling that directly with the PU? Suppose you could, one would have to make sure that there is enough of a draft angle so that the texture of the print would not lock the part in. Tha...

Re: Push to Fit Alternative??

Also, buying a specialty binder probably isn't worth it. You can get one connector from Amazon (with Prime shipping if you have it) here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0065RQ3WG/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . My guess would be that specialty glue would be more expensive Tis True...

Re: A heel for a shoe, fly-screen stops and a folding knife

Thanks. Truth be told the heels failed straight away. I think something like this is better suited to a more flexible filament. PLA just wont cut it. The knife is not sharp no, but rather pointy, it's a perfect tool for my kids to blind themselves on :/ It was more an experiment in .1 layer height ...

Re: Shout out from Denver CO

Ian,

Thanks!... Sorry for disregarding your invite earlier... Lots of interference lately.

For the most part, I am only going to get short bursts of time to work on it. I will do what I can, should I run into trouble, I will be in touch.

Ok, expect it... :D

Cheers!

Chris

Part of the problem you are having with your "patches" is that the material the tube is made from us super stable. there are a number of plastics like this. HDPE, etc... Think Teflon, the same reason it works so well from burn't food in your frying pan. Some of these plastics do have binde...

Re: Not good could have been worse

If you have the funds you should still purchase the thermocouple meter. Everyone who owns a 3D printer should have one. It is the only way to verify that the temperatures being reported are accurate. What kind of filament did you use to print what you showed and at what temperature? Any recommendat...

Re: Metal clay printing?

I'm excited about your intention to print investment casting wax. I've thought for a long time that this would be an awesome advancement. Make sure to let us know how it goes! the trick with it will be; when it melts, it has a low viscosity at least compared to what extruding is typically used. and...

Re: How to get good bonding for pillars

Michael, Have you tried to NOT combine your shapes? That is in your design, keep your parts mechanically separate. I have yet to print anything, but playing around with Cura, I wanted to see how it would slice objects that overlap, and it definitely prints a higher density at the intersections. Can'...

Re: Metal clay printing?

I use metal clay and metal polymer clay all the time and these are very different materials. The metal polymer clay is like Playdo and not suitable to extrude, but metal clay can be had in powder form and mixed with water to a slip consistency or thicker. This is what the printer above is using. Mi...

Re: Metal clay printing?

That's really cool. Now what if you printed a mould out of PLA or ABS and filled it with the metal clay. When you cook it would it burn off all the plastic? That might be a pretty slick way to work around the whole extruding the clay issue. As I understand it, PLA is the way to go. you can burn it ...

Re: Metal clay printing?

I wonder what kind of shrinkage it would have. The stuff that is typically used in jewelry, does not flow that well. Adding some kind of fluid to it to make it less viscous would probably give it more shrink, or porosity, or both. PMC, already tends to be pretty porous, if you want the fine craft lo...

Re: Preferred CAD/Modeling apps for OSX users?

Well, I usually prefer to not be wrong, however this is a good one to be so. The more professional level software that comes our way, the better!

I will certainly check it out, hopefully their flat pattern modules are in.

Thanks!
