Testing New 3D Printing Filament - Carbon Fiber, Wood Filled, XT, and more!
A few months ago, I received some samples of colorFabb PLA/PHA filament. I liked it so much that I decided to become a reseller in the USA. Here is my initial evaluation showing off some of the great properties of the PLA/PHA. This material is awesome.
Halloween Ideas for 3D Printing
I've been 3D printing Halloween themed parts throughout the year, both for fun and as props for The Haunted Barn in Camden, DE.
Now that Halloween is almost here, I thought it would be cool to put up some of the things I've printed. I'd love to supplement this with other people's prints as well. Please leave a comment with your print. You can link it, or send it to me and I will add it to the post!
More 3D Printed Metal! Lost PLA
Between Makerfaire NY, shipping and ordering filament, I haven't had a lot of time to update the blog lately, but we've been doing some really cool work. So, I'm taking a quick break just to toss up some pics of castings. Here is a customer job we worked on a while back.
Vapor Polishing colorFabb XT!
A few nights ago, I printed a thin walled part with colorFabb _XT. It was very tall and unstable. Essentially a 4 inch disk standing on end. I used a brim, but that wasn't really enough. As the part built up higher and higher, it became less and less stable. As such, I ended up with a pretty low quality print and had a few layer delaminations.
3D Printed Yoda Charm Cast in Silicon Bronze
As promised earlier this week, I am going to start posting the results of our 3D print-to-metal process. We decided to start with a nice iconic 3D printing model, scaled down with an added loop for a keychain or necklace.. Yoda! I believe the original thingiverse yoda model is here: Yoda (bmoshe) / CC BY-SA 3.0 Numerous very creative remixes are posted.
