Things I printed this week

This is just a quick, (hopefully) weekly post showing what I’ve been printing and we might go a little more in-depth with the more complex prints.

I’m starting to pay my cartesian printers some attention again and one thing that has been bugging me is the stability of the Y carriage (or lack thereof).

Hopefully between these and the new LM8UU bearings I purchased, I’ll have a steadier, smoother experience with my Y carriage.

This just looked cool but it turned out to be a nice print. I’d love to do a higher resolution one in the future.

I’ve been wearing these for about a week now. They’re good, reliable and easy to print. Still not sure if it’s quicker than regular shoe laces but that may have something to do with how tight I have my shoes.

This piece was made for a company that’s about to sell 3D printers/filaments. They wanted something for their trade counter to promote the filament. I used supports everywhere because I did not want this to fail (and I haven’t fitted my blower fan yet).

I was really happy with the result and so was the client.

I’ve touched on this one a little in the previous post but suffice to say it was the most interesting thing I’ve printed to date design wise. Fully articulated and print in place with only a few supports. Very cool.
