FINISH 3D PRINTS

3D FINISH!

FINALLY A PRODUCT TO FINISH 3D PRINTS

3d finish

Today I want to recommend an article that must not be missing in our drawers to finish 3d prints, 3d finish.

I received a sample of this product directly from RESIN PRO to try to verify its effective validity and ease of use.

It is a two-component resin specific to finish 3d prints, easy to use and in my opinion it guarantees an exceptional result.

how to make 3d printed lithophanes

create 3d printed lithophanes

Do we want to make lithophanes of our photos with 3d printing?

Surely you can get very particular and effective things with our 3d printers, among these things we can precisely create lithophanes.

litofania

Creating litophane with our 3d printers may seem not an easy thing, in reality it is easier than it may seem thanks to a service available online for free from 3dprocks .

the site offers a tool available here where you can upload 2d images to be transformed into stl files to print lithographs.

ender 3

Creality Ender 3 an entry level to start well in the world of 3d printing

A friend asked me to assemble and calibrate an Ender 3 bought for his son who wants to start 3D printing.

It was delivered to me in its original packaging, well made and cared for for the protection of the pieces contained.

The Ender 3 arrives practically already assembled and following the simple and complete instructions available online the rest can be assembled in less than an hour.

NOT MANIFOLD…HOW TO TAKE REMEDY IN A SIMPLE WAY

not manifold, we understand what it means and how to remedy it

When we design and then draw a three-dimensional model to then be able to make it printed in 3d, we must take into account many factors, for example that the slicer will have to “slice” it to obtain all the coordinates to be used to carry out the physical construction by layering our three-dimensional object.

Once the drawing is finished and our file is fed to the slicer, we can find ourselves in front of a warning message that tells us “attention, the object is not manifold”.

What does it mean? In the case of 3d printing, a non-manifold object is an “non-closed” object, that is, it has imperfections that do not allow continuity during the printing phase. For example, it may be a wall that we apparently designed perpendicular to another but which actually has a minimal, practically invisible, deviation from the contact one.

SUPPORTS …. a great help

What is the purpose of enabling supports in 3d printing? If you are reading this article you already know what an FDM 3d printer is and how it works and that is that it is able to “build” a shape by depositing plastic material layer upon layer.

Yeah but what if I have to print a house with a balcony? a shape with a cantilevered part? coming out of the print base of the object?

Slicers software are our friends…

wade and bowden extruders

wade and bowden extruders…differences

Very often those who are preparing to build a printer from scratch or modify one are taken by the doubt about which type of extruder to use and the choice arises between wade and bowden extruders.
