I'm actually working on my first videogame that I'd like to share with you. XModule is a sci-fi racing game that allows you to create your own concept car and 3D print each car component. Futuristic environments and powerful prototypes are the heart of this game that beats with a Drum&Bass rhythm. First, you'll choose which module you want to use for your career. You have to choose pretty carefully your module because you won't be able to change it afterwards. XModule is a sci-fi racing game that allows you to create your own concept car and 3D print each car component.

During the game you have to improve your module changing parts and settings. Our Best Tips about Wall Thickness for 3D Printing. When it comes to 3D printing disappointments, the fragility of the 3D print ranks high and fragile 3D prints amounts for lots of failures.

Our Best Tips about Wall Thickness for 3D Printing

Though there are four essential things to check that could prevent a bad outcome when sending your 3D model to a 3D printer or a 3D printing service. The minimum scale of your model The modeling of your 3D file doesn’t necessarily require that you work with a given unit or scale. It’s particularly true with software like Blender in which you’re able to give proportion but no unit. This job will be done after the modeling phase when you send your model to a 3D printer. A powerful example of that can be found in architectural models. A 3D printed model for architectural purposes Once again the outcome can at best that the details won’t be printed and at worse they could break or even make the 3D printer crash.

Three things contribute to bed adhesion: The bed surface (PET tape, glass, or other types) The material you are printing in (PLA, ABS, Nylon) And the heat of the bed (usually between 60 degrees and 90 degrees Celsius) The best adhesion I've found for ABS consists of a 80-90° bed, PET tape, with a thin film of Elmer's Glue stick on top. The best adhesion I've found for PLA is a 0-50° bed, PET tape or uncovered glass, and Elmer's Glue. Suggestions and methods from comments include: Member gravityisweak suggested his method: Use hair gel from the dollar store on hot glass for rock hard adherence with PLA. Member MikeTheSpike says: I print ABS at 220 degrees Celsius on a 110 degree bed.

3D-Printed Classical Paintings Will Let The Blind “See” Famous Art For The First Time. The Unseen Art project, which is being run by Helsinki-based designer Marc Dillon, is using 3D printing to give blind people the opportunity to experience classical art that many sighted people might take for granted.

3D-Printed Classical Paintings Will Let The Blind “See” Famous Art For The First Time

“Imagine not knowing what Mona Lisa’s smile looks like, or Van Gogh’s sunflowers. Imagine you heard people talking about them and knew they existed, but could never experience them for yourself. For the millions of people who are blind, that’s a reality,” the project explains in a video. They use 3D imaging and sand-based 3D printing to recreate these works of art on a scale and quality that can be put on display in museums. Though their approach is unique, the Unseen Art project is not the first to have come up with this concept. 3D printing has been used to turn photos into “Touchable Memories” and even to help a blind mother “see” the ultrasound of her unborn child.
