So many of you have already heard of this. but just to repeat myself: I got a 3D-PRINTER! SO awesome!

After spending so long building it, I can finally start printing out stuff. :3
In the beginning I'll mostly make test pieces to find out where the quality stops.

Anyhooves. let's get down to business. I'm sure people would like to see some actual prints now. :>


First print!


Nothing more than a simple triangle to test if the printer worked. It did. :3


Second print!


Trifoce in da house!
This print got kinda messed up after it started printing the third layer. Everything got a bit twisted to the side...



Only a few more test-prints and I'll start printing out some ponies. :>
Speaking of which: I got KP-ShadowSquirrel's permission to print his models. Very Happy


So post and tell me what you think, and which pony should be my first. :3

Technically, wouldn't that be holes EXcluded? Smile

Anyway, have the printer print a miniature version of itself, which in turn prints a miniature version of itself, ad infinitum. That way you'll asymptotically have 2 printers.

Again: I can't find any good 3D models of her. She'll just have to wait a bit. :<

Rainbow pose #1 would look badass if you added a banhammer to her mouth.

Also, do you intend to paint stuff, or just leave it semiclear?

Added to the maybe list. ^_^


I intend to paint them. No color makes Rainbow a sad pony. :<

PonyKart is open-source, and they include all the character mesh files in their sourceforge repo:

I see two issues with this..

1. What program do they use? I can't use '.mesh' files. And definitely not '.thing' files. =/

2. There's no need to get new models now. I already got permission to print AND sell the models KP-ShadowSquirrel made. :3
Those models can also be easy to modify. :>

THIRD PRINT!


Just decided to test if the printer was calibrated correctly and all the bolt were tight enough. I think it is. :>
If only the camera weren't so crappy when it comes to focus...


Also a small update on ponies:

- A 91mm (3.5 inches) Luna will take about 10 hours to print. (Wings folded)
- A 73.75mm (2,9 inches) Derpy will take almost 11 hours to print.
- A 63mm (2.5 inches) Twilight will take 5 hours and 45 minutes to print

All of them are on a platform to stand better.




- this is how it will be printed. With supports and platform



More updates AFTER my final exams. ^_^

FIRST PONY PRINT!!!




It's SUPPOSED to be Twilight Sparkle.. But I encountered a problem I never really thought about fixing. :<
The filament got stuck after I over-tightened the extruder...
It would be waaaay better if it decided to get stuck at the beginning of the print instead of at the very end.. -_-
Because the filament got stuck, it skipped almost 6 layers and made it impossible to fix.

Oh well.. Better luck next time. :3

Decapitating Twilight Sparkle fills you with joy?

Yeah! Now Dashie can't call her an egghead. She'll just be an egg instead.

HERE BE DRAGONS!!



This is the first model I've printed all the way without any problems at all.

I found this dragon on the Thingiverse a while ago and really wanted to try printing it.
Unfortunately my camera lacks manual focus, so I can't get the best pictures....

Anyway. You can find better picture of how it looks here: Link!

Hell yeah! I bet it being mostly flat made it a bit easier to print haha.

Isn't that basically just printing the base and then threading the electronics?
What I was thinking about was printing an entire circuit board, complete with circuits and all. And motors.


ALSO!
I've printed a successful model of Twilight. I'm just gonna finish it up with smoothing and paint, and I'll put it up for sale if anyone's interested. ^_^
Believe me: You'l hear it when it's ready. >:3

Fluttershy print is complete!



Decided to do a crappy time-lapse'ish thing. From about halfway to the end. :3
Now you can also see what the support-prints look like. ^w^


Still needs some work with smoothing and painting though.

And she's too side-heavy to stand on her own. I'll need to make a platform. =/
