Re: Replica Statue

Nice work! I saw the pic before I finished reading the first post and I guessed the one on the left to be the original due to the retro pale jade green color. Of course, I finished reading your post and zoomed in on the pic. Interesting to read about the colorblindness and see the result and realiz...

Wow! They look identical, (minus the repairs, of course).
I am curious, how does the one on the left look to you compared to the table top? The one on the right is of similar color to the table top.
Haha, yeah they all seem kind of the same to me, though the different patterns help.

Replica Statue

Using photogrammetry and 3D printing I was able to make a replica of a statue that my wife is find of. About 15 years ago the statue was damaged when it fell off a book shelf, she has been looking for one like it since then. I used Meshroom to generate the 3D mesh, Blender for mesh clean up, and Sim...

Re: Mehve 2 3D printed model

Thank you very much for the kind words! This was modeled in CATIA and sliced in Simplify 3D.I used this ( http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/File:Mehve_Concept.png ) drawing as a reference though only for the proportions and basic outline. All the parts were printed with 0.25mm nozzle at 0.15mm layer heig...

Mehve 2 3D printed model

Hi, This is a modified version of the Mehve from the movie 'Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind'. It is 1/18th scale fits a Lego Belleville figure, has retracting landing skids, and movable flaps. It was inspired by my daughter, who after seeing the movie really wanted a toy version of the Mehve. I C...

Re: Z axis movment mid layer

On the contrary---it is more likely the stepper motor than the stepper driver. The key is that this thing is a first generation M2 with a 24V upgrade. The Z steppers on early models have a high resistance, run very hot, and upgrading to 24V seems to deliver a quick death. That's exactly what happen...

Re: Z axis movment mid layer

Thank you very much for the response. If it is the driver then I suspect the driver itself is nearing the end of its life. I have run my M2 for 2 years with very heavy usage and have never encountered this behavior until now. I'll slap a heat sink on the z driver and hope that it improves. Thank you...

Z axis movment mid layer

Hello, I am posting this because I want to verify that the behavior i am seeing is due to the z axis stepper motor and not the RAMBo. This just started last night during a 10 hour print. The z stepper would drop a bit (a fraction of a layer height) in the middle of layer as if there was a command to...

Re: 3D printed model space plane

Thanks!
I am using CATIA V5 for my design work, and Simplify 3D for slicing.
