Bag Clips – Functional 3D Printing #2

Bag Clips are one of the uses for 3D printing that my wife ‘gets’. We have quite a few of them around the house. you can never have too many and they can be easily 3D printed in just a few minutes (or hours if your want the quality). They cost nothing but can help keep all of that expensive food you’ve bought fresh. 3D Printing the Bag Clips One of the designs I frequently go back to is this one, I like it because it has a working live hinge that doesn’t require any supports. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:330151 You need...

Brain from Pinky and the Brain – Fun Resin 3D Printing #1 (Tutorial)

Who didn’t love Pinky and the Brain growing up? They started as an Animaniacs side show and eventually became a phenomenon of their own.¬†Would you like to know how I created this Brain resin model with the Moai SLA 3D Printer? A full tutorial follows. The anthropomorphic mice, both effectively bad guys, consistently tried to take over the world, with Brains the brains of the operation and Pinky the slightly clumsy Egor character. So, with my Moai 3D Printer pretty well calibrated I decided I wanted to test out some different supports. I wasn’t having too much luck with...

So, I powered up the Raise3D...

Reviewing the beautiful Filamentum Vertigo Galaxy Black

Introduction I was perusing thingiverse when I stumbled across a wicked filement spool holder, it was fantastic and even had a silica gel area. One thing that struck me was despite the 0.3 mm layer height the parts looked incredible due to the glistening fleck in the filament. I followed the link to the creators own website, Soannerhands. Turns out that the dude is a retailer for Filamentum and also lives nearby. Was time to place an order. Overview This filament comes on a nice 750g spool. Transparent sides so you can see what you’re doing and nicely wound....
