Just signed up to print a part of that – because why not.
Progress shots to come soon.
The Bowden tube connector broke. Sigh. Ordered in a new one.
So no printing for me this weekend.
From a simple model in Autodesk Fusion 360…
to a printed object.
Slowly practicing on creating my own models.
I am proud of this spiral. Because I made it in Autodesk Fusion 360, sliced it with Cura, and then printed it. So is the first thing I modeled and then printed.
Is simple but that is just the start.
Previously, I mentioned that I finally managed to get the printer working and here’s some stuff I printed today.
tiny calibration cube, big ankh, smaller ankh, box. In the order I printed them. all links to their thingiverse page. Box is going to work with me tomorrow, because I need a box to hold my paper clips on my desk.
Currently printing the climbing Thin Man. My work monitor is lonely after I brought home the Pikachu figurine that used to sit on top of it.
After a week of headaches, I finally got the 3D printer working as it should. Finally managed to print.
Only one question: why must my print speed be at 50% for the printing to work? hmmm…
Also. I was at Maker Faire yesterday for a couple of hours. Mainly to visit the 3D printers. And had a good long chat with a friend who had a booth there. Maker Faire post to come soon.
Because guess who’s prints are not working out because the print bed is not level?
IT IS A HORROR. and my fingers hurt. and my brain hurts.
I’m going to sleep. Company Family Day in the morning.
Also. FabCafe is trying to lure me to their cafe/makerspace/idk to visit their 3D printer. Maybe someday. When I am more free. And have time/energy to lurk at various cafes. HAHA
I posted before that my dear 3D printer was apparently clogged or something.
Yesterday I spoke to the technician and yes, my printer was clogged. So she explained to me how to clear the clog and today I went out and got the required tools. And then spent two hours dismantling the nozzle, clearing the clogged up plastics, and reassembling everything. And I managed to sort of print.
The thing now. It only seems to print the 1st layer and then the plastic stops extruding. Probably the bed isn’t level. Urgh. I hate levelling the bed. Takes forever.
This is going to be tomorrow’s project. I need to sleep. Work in the morning.
