Getting Back Into 3D Printing

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on March 23, 2022 by getbent57

Has been a long while since I have done any 3D printing with my Elegoo Neptune 2.  This is mostly because where I have the printer it’s cooler than the rest of the house.  Didn’t want to chance having the prints fail because it the PLA wasn’t warm enough.  How that we are into Spring.  The temperatures will be getting better.  Do have a long list of projects I want to make and or try out.

Collapsing Lightsaber Again

Talking about that Collapsing Lightsaber 3D model I tried to print down scaled.  That didn’t workout.  So decided to print it at the right scale.  Discovered that the maker has other models and version.  There is a version of the same Lightsaber were it is broken into three parts.  This is the one I gave a try.  He all so includes a test print for the collapsing blade part.  Did that first and that worked out fine.  So print the full blade next.  This took about eleven hours.  You can check this model > here.

Collapsing Lightsaber

Collapsing_LightsaberWhile not a big Star Wars fan have all ways thought Lightsabers are cool.  While looking for something to 3D print came across a collapsing Lightsaber > here.  This model as some very cool features.  Firstly it is a print in place model.  Which means you don’t need to add supports.  The second is the light part of the saber is hidden in the handle until you flick it out.   Was going to print this at the full scale at first but that would take more time than I had.  So scaled it down by 50% to see how it would turn out.

[Update} It didn’t turn out so good.  It looks great buy the saber part fussed together.  Going to print it at the normal size now.

Has been awhile but back with a new video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.  This time talking about a new 3D printer.  Back in the summer of 2021 bought myself an Elegoo Neptune 2. Here are some of the early prints, I have tied.  Am very happy with how this 3D printer works. Watch out for more project videos.  All so trying something else out new, Text to Speech.  Let me know how you think.  As for the video you can see it > here or below.
