3D Printing General Discussion (merged)

Well mephit mini appeared to be ok. It finished while I was asleep. I took a peek before leaving for work tonight. 

 

I decided to also switch resins. I had been using abs like resin vs regular, both Elegoo brand. I bought the abs without looking at the title closely. I only had a little bit left in the bottle but figured eh, might as well give the regular a try. Heck it worked when I switched from trans green to grey! :lol:

 

Will print out a 2nd mephit when I get home.

 

Strikethrough to say "whenever I felt like it...."

 

Mephit mini came out great!! Saves me some bucks buying either a prepainted one (spendy) or anther prepainted mephit & repainting (hassle) or getting just one Reaper mini (Blood imp pack of 3) in the mail. If I'm gonna order Reaper minis, it's gotta be more then 1 or 2!!

 

Just going to let it set for a bit before slapping some white primer on it (ice mephit)

 

2 in a row! I'm on a streak! :lol:

That wasn't cussing, those were POWER WORDS!

 

Worked, too, I finally got Blender to do what I wanted it to do when joining two parts.

 

I may have left a snap to grid on, so the two parts kept not meeting where I wanted them to go together :blush:.

You know better than I do - I didn't even know Blender has a Snap to Grid function.

 

Sure enough, it does! ::o:

My printer is pissing me off.  I got a hole in the FEP, so I changed it.  Now all of the prints are sticking hard to one corner of the FEP and are pulling off of the supports during printing.  I think i got the FEP too tight with not much pay for loosening it.  I hate changing the FEP!  I have one more left in stock, so I will have to change it out again tonight.

Swap to using laminating pouches instead?  

There was a link to a YT video a while ago about how to use them. 

 

Have you cleaned the problematic corner of the FEP film?

I'm trying out the epax non-fep film, so far it hasn't gone well. stuff seems to be ripping off the supports worse than it was with the traditional fep.  

 

Then again, I was in the habit of using ptfe spray on my regular fep and I omitted it for this because I thought it might interfere with the oxygen permeability of the nfep

Christmas may come early this year.

 

I've been planning to upgrade my Epax to the new 2k mono screen.  This upgrade also requires a new main board and light array.  I've been holding off on the large purchase until my current screen failed, and I wasn't sure when the pocketbook would allow it or whether Epax would have even newer technology available.

 

Well, my current develop a gaping dead spot yesterday, and I think the stars are aligning so I can make this purchase tomorrow.

This little gem is a freebie on drivethrurpg right now. Just look for 3D printable Pumpkin Monster from Black Scroll Games.

Print it's eye in white or clear filament/resin for a glow effect with a LED

I thought I had enough giant owl prepainted minis (the celestial owl) but some reason, I've misplaced 2 of the 4 I have so I found a simple but effective miniature for it. Printed it this afternoon & came out great! I'm in the process of printing anther one. There is a flying base included but I didn't feel like printing it for 4 hrs. I'll just use Reaper's flight base for them.

Prepainted Celestial Owl?

 

That's from WotC's DDM.  It was #2 in the Unhallowed set.

Yah & it's very spendy for what it is on aftermarkets.

 

The file I printed out was from here: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/giant-owl

 

The design was simple but it works. If your looking for a more detailed one, search for user name: Velrock on mmf.

Is it just me, or do 3-D printer owners... evangelize? 

 

Sam's parents are now getting a 3D printer, or maybe two....  Because we have been talking to Sam, and Sam has been talking to Jamie and Andrew.... (Sam is missing her own after school game -  she had been running it for two years, starting when she was nine.)

 

The Auld Grump - I sent them to Cast n Play, solid, chunky 3-D models....
