Doing 3d Printing? Show us your work...

Wow, its been a while since I posted here, time flies. I'm a ten year veteran of the game industry, working as a generalist 2d/3d artist. For the last 10 years though, I have been working on modular, 3d printable human powered exo-frames. Inspired by the already impressive human frame, my exoskeleton design follows as closely as possible human mechanics and locomotion. But when you get right down to it, I have designed fancy pogo sticks you can wear.

My first working prototype has just rolled off the assembly line, (my 1000 dollar printer.) Medium term objectives include full leg versions and athlete performance testing by this spring if I can get funding, and full body suit by 2017.

Did you know that some of your 3D prints may have partially or completely failed just because of humidity contained in the filament you used? This sort of humidity is invisible to the naked eye, so you probably blamed your print settings, your 3D printer or even doubted your abilities, but all of that may actually not have been the cause of your problem: it was the humid filament.

Some people tried to address this problem by creating more or less elaborate 3D filament storage solutions, like filament driers or special filament containers. The problem is that most are either bulky, energy consuming and/or slow, they come at a certain price or constructing them takes a lot of your time. Well, we may have just the solution for you: a quick, very simple and cheap way to store your filament without hassle. The filament is not extruding - tips & tricks. Printing Material Suppliers. Printing Material Suppliers. 3D-printed Lightsaber Design Philosophy and Printing Tips.

The examples I saw were mostly over simplified, impossible to print without supports, or difficult to assemble. I knew I wanted something more faithful to the original prop with better surface quality. So I set out to build my favorite design from the series. 4 vs 14 piece design I ended up making two versions of the Lightsaber, a 4 piece version which stresses ease of printing and assembly, and a 14 piece version that makes no compromise on surface quality.
