Wednesday_ThingHave printed off another cool file found over at Printables.com.  It is Thing > here from the Netflix show Wednesday.  Still haven’t  watched this show yet.  But know who Thing is from the old TV show.  Which we used to watch re-runs on Sundays as kids.  Didn’t print it full scale.  Cut it buy 50%.  Just to see how well it would turn out.   In which it did.  If I get more time will print it again at full scale.

Have had the two spools of EconoFil standard PLA in black > here from Filaments.ca sitting in a box since July (2022).  Now that I have used up all the other filament, it is time to try this one out.  Not to sure if I will need to change any of the setting in the slicer.  So going to print something small first.  If that does ok.  Have a bunch of projects planned.

3D Printing In 2022

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2022 by getbent57

This past year I have managed to print off a lot of great things with my Elegoo Neptune 2 FDM 3D printer.  All so managed to paint/finish most of theses.  When fall set in kind of stopped working on these projects.  Missing do them, so the plan is to jump back in to it this January.  Not sure how well the printer will run since it’s in a colder part of the house.  Think I will just try out some small things at first.  The only down side is I will not be able to prime any new model.  That is because the temperature needs to be about 10c outside.

Chibi_Spider-ManThink I have found my next 3D printing project for at Printables.com again.  It this this > here a Chibi Spider-Man.  While not the biggest Spider-Man/Marvel fan this does look really cool.  All so it should be some what easy to paint.   It does seem to be designed to be printed with resin.  But I will be using my FDM printer.  The only down side is when it comes time prime it.  It’s winter here now so will have to keep my eye on the weather.

Slurm_CanHave made a few posts talking about this 3D model I am working on, Fry from Futurama > here over at Printables.com.  The person that made this model all so included a option to have him hold a Slurm can.  That is the name of the pop in the show.  Well I decided to upscale that to make more life size.  Printed it in three parts.  Top, middle and bottom.  Just need to do some light sanding to get the bottom to fit.  The I am going to prime and paint it.  Will be back with an update when it is done.

BenderForgot to blog about this when I first started working it back in September (2022).  It is Bender from Futurama, you can see it > here over at Printables.com.  The person that designed this did an awesome job.  Everything was easy to print and glue together.  While I did print all the parts.  Some didn’t fit together for me.  But it was no big deal.  As you can see from the picture below. Once it was painted it turned out really good.

Grim_Reaper_MMU_RemixFound another awesome looking 3D model over at Printables.com that I am going to print.  While I am not big into Halloween.  But when I was going though that section on the website seen this > here, a Grim Reaper.  The person who design it made it so you it can be print with more than one colour.  That is what MMU stands for.  I wouldn’t be doing that.  I’ll just print it and then paint.  Will be back with updates.
