I finally got to play with flexible filament! A client needed a push button for a prototype. I was really impressed with SainSmart's Flexible TPU. The first print came out great, using the recommended settings.
My RC Tech project has been very fun experimenting with new techniques! This is my first project using Top-down design in SolidWorks and it's awesome! It will definitely be my go to design style from now on. Top-down is sketching all of your parts in your main assembly and referencing each part sketches to it, … Continue reading Top down design & reduce 3D printed supports
I love re-purposing things and this can became home to my 3D printing tools. But I quickly realized it wasn't efficient... So I took some measurements & jumped on Fusion360 to design a tool holder to keep the bigger tools organized!
Here's a functional 3D printed prototype I designed for Chris Tatum @ctatum870 from a napkin sketch. When you're shaving the back of your head and can't see what you're doing, the Mirazor mirror attachment solves that problem! Chris is currently working on the production stage and I'm excited to see Mirazor hit the market!
My soldering skills are a little rusty, but I picked it back up like riding a bike!
This spool holder has seen some miles in the last year and I noticed it had cracked and miraculously still holding on! So I went back to the drawing board! I had originally found this on thingiverse.com but I redesigned for narrower spools. (I can't help myself, I have to tweak everything somehow!) In this … Continue reading Spool Holder Redesign
If you thought 3D Printing was just for making toys and nick nacks, check this out! Joel Telling, YouTube's 3D Printing Nerd printed a new tether for his gas cap with flexible filament. No special trips to the dealership or parts store, just grab a model and print, never leaving the house! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1dCwD1ZFXE ...
