3D Modeled Coin

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2020 by getbent57

Awhile back I made a 3D model of a coin using Tinkercad and printed on my Elegoo Mars.  Printed off about seven of them at one time.  They didn’t turn out so good.  So decided to start over.  The first time I use the dimensions of Toonie.  This time I just made a bigger coin thinking it will be cooler to look at and hold.  Making them as kind of like a promo for the YouTube channel I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.  In the picture below.  The small coin in the front is the old model and the one in the back is the new.  I have printed off six off the new.  Just need to clean and cure them.  Will be back with another post.

Grand Theft Auto Online Summer Update

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2020 by getbent57

There is now a summer update for GTA Online.  They are calling it Los Santos Summer Special.  They are adding new co-op work though the Yacht’s.  All so new business battles and adversary modes.  There will be more vehicles along with open wheel ones.  As with the open wheel cars there will be a open wheel race creator.  This stuff all sounds fine.  But I was hoping for something cooler.  They gloss over one feature they mention at the bottom of the post.  You can know own eight properties. We will get to see how good everything is on August 11, 2020.  You can read the official blog post > here.

It was back near the end of June (2020) that the makers of Cyberpunk 2077 put of a video called Night City Wire.  It showed off some new gameplay and talked to the developers.  They are back with episode 2. Which went live on August 10, 2020.  They show off what they are calling Lifepaths.  There are three of them in once you choose to start the game.  They all so talk about the music.  Lastly they show off some of the weapons.  Am so looking forward to playing this game in November.  After watching this > here or below and even more hyped.

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry,  talk about using my Elegoo Mars 3D printer.  Jumped back into using it.  My goal was to design a coin to be used a promo item for this YouTube channel. I made the coin in Tinkercad.  Let’s see how it turns out. You can see the video > here or below.

PrusaSlicer

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 8, 2020 by getbent57

PrusaSlicerAs you may know I have Elegoo Mars 3D printer.  Now that I have an Elegoo Mercury and an ultrasonic cleaner have jumped back into printing things.  When I first got the printer my brother wanted a 3D model of a shotgun shell upsized.  Found one online so that is what I wanted to print.  The auto supports in ChiTuBox are not so great.  So decided to try my hand at doing it manually.  Once that was done ran it though the program Photon Validator.  This finds un-supported islands so you can fix them in ChiTuBox.  Did that and is it seems fined.  Started to print it.  When I check on it about 35% done, this is about the spot you can see the built plate.  Seen that the shell was not stuck to the plate.  It had failed.

On a Facebook group for awhile now have been reading that people have been using PrusaSlicer to add auto supports and then do the slicing in ChiTuBox.  This Slicer is made to be used of the Prusa printers but you can set it up to be used with their resin printer.  That is what you use to add the supports.  Watched some video on how to and it is easy enough to setup.  Gave it a go.  As I am typing this the file is stuck to the build plate and looking good.  Thinking I will keep using these three programs to make 3D printing so much easier.  Will be back with an update once the shell is done.

PlayStation State of Play – August 2020

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , on August 7, 2020 by getbent57

Sony had another State of Play on August 6, 2020.  They have been putting about one of these a month now.  While this mostly talked about PlayStation 4 stuff.  Which is fine by me.  The internet on the other hand, had their pitch forks out as all ways.  They showed off a good mix of different games.  The big standout for me was they showed more of Crash 4.  As for the other games they were fine just not interested in what they showed.  If you missed it you can > here or below.

A Toy Store Near You

A_Toy_Store_Near_YouIf you are a fan of The Toys That Made Us or The Movies Made Us over on Netflix.  Have some good news.  The company, Nacelle,  have a new series out called A Toy Store Near You.  The idea behind this show is taking to independent toy stores about how the pandemic is affecting their business.  The best part is (as I am typing this August 1, 2020) there are five episodes all on YouTube.  Which you can check out > here.  They don’t have a playlist made so you need to go though their video list to seen them in order.  I did watch the first episode. It was pretty good.  Has a small bit of the charm from their past shows.

Batman_Blind-Pack_2-Inch_Mini-FigureWhile walking around Walmart seen as new Batman themed blind bag like item.  Well it comes in a round plastic container, they call a mystery canister.  Do like these kind of things so bought two.  They are put out by Spin Master.  Each one is a 2” mini figure.  In which there are 20 to collect.  Some of those are just variants.  They cost about $5.00 each so took a change.  The first one is called Swamp Batman.  The second is a sliver looking Batman.  From the check list it is called Rare Batman.   They do look pretty good.  Much better than a DC blind bags I picked up years ago.
