Made a box for the control board for my extra screen re-purposed from an old laptop. Despite having a detailed technical drawing of the main board, some adjustments will have to made, such as a larger hole for the power port and a place for the external buttons.
It’s possible to add fabric materials in between the layers of 3D prints!
Finally Printed on the Departments Powder Printer, a Projet 360. Learned a few things, such as minimal thickness, as you can see in the roof cave in.
Finished the large rabbit decor by adding layered acrylic sheets to complete the logo. I had to break the acrylic in a few places because of some uneven shrinking on both materials part, but it’s barely viable. I can’t wait to see it on the wall!
Process steps for Resin/String Screen Project
- Stenciled pattern onto plastic covered board.
- Screwed nails into board and added some oil to plastic to prevent resin from sticking.
- Ran cotton string through resin and wrapped around the screws.
- Waited for resin to cure.
- Removed screws
One of the problems with modeling vaults, especially with 3D printing, is the many small pieces either don’t print right or get mistaken for other pieces. A new idea is to use fabric infused with the printing process to keep all the pieces intact and grouped together. This may help the modeling a much smother experience and allow for demonstration by quick disassembly and reassembly.
Fabric infused arch
Made a little vault using RhinoVault to show off the 3d Printers. First try failed to print because the shell was too thin.
Made a small clip tool holder for my makerbot hex screws so I don’t lose them in with the rest of the tools!
Did some looking into different ways to make molds for resin casting. We used a wood board with 1in pockets drilled into the surface with various materials lining the pockets. We chose, from left to right; scotch tape, aluminum foils in two methods, saran wrap, scotch tape with a bolt, silicone mold condisinor, silicone, plastic cup with a dye test.
