I'll 3D Print Your Designs
Send me an STL file!
By Rob Cockerham |
Alright! We are in business!
I offered to print 3D designs earlier this month, received a few files and now they are ready!
The first file I was sent was this aerodynamic mouse shaped block from Mitchell in Seattle, WA. I got the STL file and resized it to be about the size of a computer mouse.
It took about 90 minutes to print. I used the "clear" plastic filament (because I have a ton of it).
TADA! That's it. It is about the size of a slimline computer mouse.
The second design came from Teresa M. I don't know where she lives, but she sent half of a donut shape that she made in TinkerCAD.
Although this design has a slight chance of drooping plastic as it prints that center unsupported bit, I thought the arch shape would be self-supporting, so I just printed it as-is.
It worked! Another 90 minute print, using about 31¢ worth of plastic filament.
Look at that beauty! A nice clear archway, maybe just the beginning of a comfortable set of handlebars for her 10-speed.
Erin sent an old man's head that she modeled in Zbrush! She's in art school, so don't be intimidated by her skills. I don't expect awesome 3D files like this from everyone.
I printed this guy in silver filament. He looks great, and I couldn't resist sending her the completed head. Again, this was about 40¢ worth of plastic.
Want your own 3D printer? Try the $439 Crealty CR-10. It has a super large print bed, so you can print really big stuff with one of these, and they are very dependable.
