Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 9, 2022 by getbent57

Back in November (2021) 3D printed some low poly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, these files > here.   Scaled them up 300% and the turned out awesome.  Want to paint them put the weather had turned a bit too cold to prime.  Well the other day (January 6, 2022) the temperature it about 8c so decided to give them a priming any way.  Left them on the shed over night because of the smell.  The next day brag them inside to see if they would dry.  It seemed to have worked.  Now I can start to paint them.  Will be back with more updates along the way.

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.

Low Poly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2021 by getbent57

Low_Poly_Ninja_TurtlesHad lots of fun printing and painting the Low Poly Hulk model.  Decided to see what other cool low poly models are out there.  When is seen someone made Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I just had to do that next.  Printed Leo off first at the size the STL file was.  It was pretty small. So, scaled it up 300%, that will make it much better to paint and display.  After printed the other three turtles.  They all took bit over five hours to print.  Wanted to prime them but it is November now.  Meaning the weather is not so great.  If not, am not sure how will paint will stick to the PLA.  Might have to test that out.  As for the models you can download them yourself > here.

Low Poly Hulk Done

Made a few posts all ready talking about the Low Poly Hulk model form youmagine.com > here.   3D printed it in black PLA.  The prime it in grey.  After that painted it.  It took three coats of green.  Two for the purple and just one for the black.  After I finished painting it.  Had to do a few touch ups with my hand wobbled.  As you can see the picture below.  I think it turned out great.  My next step is to seal it in a clear coat.  The only problem is, its November so the weather can be hit or miss.

A few posts back talked about 3D printing a Low Poly Hulk model that I got from youmagine.com > here.   It took over 19 hours to print and it turned out amazing.  Decided that I will paint.  With only three colours it should be an easy job.  Picked up some green and purple paint.  All ready have some black.  So far as I am typing this (November 12, 2021, have two coats of green on.  Thinking one more should do it.  Then I will move on to the purple pants.  Will post a picture or two when it is done.

Took me about a month but got around to trying the PLA filament I ordered from Filaments.ca.  Found a cool low poly Hulk model over at youmagine.com > here.  It seemed easy to print and simple to paint.  Which I will do at some point.  Scaled the model down at first just to see who well it would turn out.   In which it did.  So, printed it again, just much bigger.  It took about 19 hours and 25 mins.  It looks amazing.  As for the PLA filament it is this one here.  (Sadly, sold out as of typing this November 7, 2021).

You many know that I have a Elegoo Neptune 2.  It works great and will worth the price.  Have blogged a few times were to get files to print.  They will be linked below.  However came across anther site.  It is called youmagine.com.   There is some interesting thing on there.  Some of the file a simple, while there are some more compilated as well.  Took a quick look though the site and seen some I would like to try.  Will be back with an update.  As the other sites they are, Thingiverse, My Mini Factory , Cults 3D and Prusa Printers.

Filaments Has Arrived

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2021 by getbent57

Had a happy surprise this past Saturday (October 9, 2021) the PLA Filament I ordered from Filaments.ca arrived.  When I first ordered it, which was a Monday, of that week.  It was estimated to show up at my door on Friday.  When that came and went got thinking it will be some time next week.  This was all Thanksgiving weekend as well.  Thinking that might push it back more.  Well when I came home from work on Saturday it was sitting on the step.  I came nicely packaged.  They even put in two re-sealable bags with salt packs. When I am on vacation plan to test this stuff out.
