Re: Hitman

I printed a Charizard. I don't think it was exactly that one. I don't remember having issues with the tail or supports, but the wing on mine was so thin it would disappear at any reasonable scale when sliced. I beefed up the wing membranes with Meshmixer (model attached). It sounds like you may be ...

Re: Hitman

Thingiverse seems to attract models that are artsy and impossible / absurdly difficult to produce with consumer-grade printers. I'd amputate the wings & tail & maybe the head, print the pieces aligned in the obvious orientations, then glue everything back together. Might be faster & less frustratin...

Re: Hitman

Bummer! What happens if you extend the brim out far enough that it overlaps itself? Would that give you a solid platform that you could get the support to stick to? (Rafts make such a mess on the bottoms of your prints, i hate to even suggest them.) But you got it to work with the manual rafts, (wh...

Re: Hitman

I'd prefer to at least get a chance to try it before shelling out for it :). I'm just going to make a habit of posting this response everywhere, because this is kind of silly it gets posted so much. IT HAS A TWO WEEK MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!!!! Also aware. Amount of software* I have bought in the past...

Re: Hitman

Cheers Jules :). Slic3r has limited options for Brim - I can just specify a width, and it's applied to each part which connects with the bed. Removes easily enough, but I haven't found it reliably preventing toppling of thinner/taller supports. Possibly Simplify3D has other options, but I'd prefer t...

Hitman

This was my attempt at printing Hitman . hitman-little-large.jpg More detail here . Both printed using Maxx tooth white PLA - I purchased two spools of this - one each of the Economy and Pro variants. The small one was printed on the Economy variant, sliced at 0.15mm with supports enabled using slic...

Re: Parametric Female/Female Pin Connector

Yeah, it's a curious one - I exported a simple 1x1 cube connector as ASCII, repaired that and exported as ASCII from netfabb. There are quite some differences in the results - difficult to know whether some of the differences are just in the sort order, but the repaired model has many more vertexes ...

Re: Parametric Female/Female Pin Connector

Interesting, but the values given didn't fix it - still showing errors when loading in the netfabb version I have here. Tried a couple of variants with no success. Would be nice to find a solution to that one for sure. FWIW, you should be able to edit the code in place and re-run by pressing ctrl + ...

Parametric Female/Female Pin Connector

So I'm trying to wire up some motors on to a 3D print, using an Arduino to control them. I found that the driver boards for the motor (ULN2003) have male pins, and the only female connectors I had would have made the connecting wires way too long, so I figured I could just print some female/female c...
