Calling 3D Modelers

Recommended Posts

Salutations all. I just got a 3D printer and am looking forward to using it with the community. If any 3D Modelers have something they want printed please send me your STL file and I will print it up and send to you. Shipping and filament cost only.

 

On top of that .. does anyone feel like taking a swing at a "Double Wide Speech Synth Case" for modelling? (To accommodate the TIPI/32k and Speech Synth?) I really don't have the time the learn 3d modelling as fast as I would like to.

 

Thank you kindly in advance.

On a side note found my old 10" Acer Aspire One. Which will run the slicer program with 1g of DDR3. Might just run it right off that.

Congrats on the 3D printer purchase.  I also took the plunge and bought one a couple of months ago.  Which one did you get?

I picked up the Creality Ender Pro 3 .. good price for a starter

Still a good choice.  I did find the Creality slicer program to be lacking some.  I ended up using Ultimaker Cura for all my prints so far.

I opened the advanced menu in slicer, and thought I was reading Cyrillic. Gonna have to teach myself this 3d modelling hoodoo sometime lol

I use Cura as well. 

 

One thing I kinda want to try some day, is to print some "channels" in the back of some copper-clad perfboard for making a clean wire-wrap style circuit card.

 

(Basically, components go on one side, wires on the other.  The side that gets the wires gets 3D printed on, to create "retention channels" to hold the wires in place, neat and tidy.)

Just bought the Ender Pro 3 as well.   This has been a lot of fun.

I would like to start this with a fun pattern I found...  the 2020 Dumpster Fire...

But seriously, one of the patterns I've wanted to do for a while was this Archon set, which the link is currently down...

Does anyone have this pattern saved?

I recently did some plumbing repair, and was "very pleased" by how well PVC adhesive sticks pipe together.  For a solvent weld, it does an amazing job.

 

So, I wondered if you could PVC filament.

 

Turns out, YOU CAN.

 

 

I am seriously contemplating ordering some of the black, then doing some tests with PVC pipe glue.  It could make for interesting builds that are not easy to accomplish otherwise.

Go to the second tab--you can download each of the thing files individually from there. I just did that about five minutes ago. The zip with all of them in it seems to have issues. . .

Tinkercad is a very approachable way to get started in 3D design: https://www.tinkercad.com/

 

You add or subtract geometric shapes.  Definitely give it a try.

 

Somewhat more advanced is OpenSCAD, a parametric design tool.  It is somewhat like programming.  https://www.openscad.org/

 

Both of these are free to use.

 

At the other end of the spectrum, more powerful and difficult to learn, are the full-featured "professional" CAD programs.

That is so cool, thanks for the tip.  Hopefully will print them soon.

I rather like my expensive CATIA seat.  Mainly because I know how to use it very well, but also because it has a very nice built-in sterolithography function for making very nice .stl files.
