  1. Any XYZ nobel 1.0A owners in here?

    I remember you said you wanted a SLA. I didn't realise the Noble was a SLA but am checking it out now. I still plan to stick with the FDM type for now and experiment with material types and nozzle sizes etc. If I had a decent size garage or brick shed etc then I would be tempted with resin based printers. Your successful prints do look great
  2. Any XYZ nobel 1.0A owners in here?

    have you moved on from the CR-10 already or are you creating an army of printers? I haven't any experience of the XYZ Nobel I assume its a full on kit to build? I am thinking of getting an Ender 3 as a 2nd printer
  3. Preparing Geometry For 3D Printing

    I missed the cineversity vids as well. I may still check them out as mentioned before you only need wall thickness if it is a hollow object. Any manifold (water tight) object should slice and print fine. Other things to bear in mind though are over hangs, thin parts and orientation so you get the best print possible
  4. Export SCALE setting? CURA

    I would normally set the project scale in my C4D file before starting anything to 0.1mm in the projects attribute tab. This usually means I will get the right sizes into Cura
  5. I got the same problem last weekend trying to open from my local onedrive folder. if i went to the onedrive site and downloaded the same file to my desk top it opened fine. Very strange and sudden
  6. How to prepare hair for printing?

    I think either not using hair and sculpting geometry or try converting hair to geometry straight out and use a heat gun to mould it to the shape you want after. here is some inspiration on a creative way to add hair to a print....
  7. SLA Printer choices

    Although undoubtedly cool. The use of chemicals and general mess of the SLA printers put me well off. The resolution benefits are pretty cool. I saw this the other day which may be of interest
  8. Printer Ordered

    Finally got a decent pangolin printed. Joints moved with little effort
  9. 3D Printed Wallet

    Very true. Lots of fun though
  10. 3D Printed Wallet

    Thanks, I am currentky using the 2nd version to test it out but it does seem strong and durable. There is a new one ready to print which shaves 5mm from the total thickness but at the cost of 2 pockets from 1 side. The design is boring though so now I have the mechanics and proof of concept working I actually need a compelling design to make it worth it. What it isn't though is a viable product for mass production as they take way too long to print. Materials wise though they are really quite cheap not counting electricity usage.
  11. 3D Printed Wallet

    Version 2 (on the left) which is much slimmer is looking good. I am going to also make a super slim version but with less pockets for cards. Black TPU has been ordered ready for some final prints. I am struggling to sculpt on the front of the wallet cleanly though. Maybe sculpting struggles with such thom geometry
  12. In Search of Models....

    congrats Jim. have you looked on thingiverse and my mini factory?
  13. 3D Printed Wallet

    This is the first finished prototype. It's much like me.....a little too chunky but functional I think I know the best wall thickness and clearances now so i need to get version 2 ready for printing.
  14. 3D Printed Wallet

    its laying down well despite it looking a big messy. there will certainly be some clean up. If the prototype comes out well i will need to buy some black TPU Still a while to go yet...
  15. 3D Printed Wallet

    Hello Everyone, This week I have started developing a 3d Printed wallet as I wanted to make some as gifts. I thought it would be nice to chart my progress here. So far I have modelled the wallet and tried to keep to what I hope will print successfully. I have done some material tests using flexible TPU filament and think this can work. Even when its thin it appears to be really strong. Eventually it would be nice to make it a more interesting design and I do plan to hopefully sculpt images, text or even relief photos on the front for decoration. My first test print was short lived as it was quickly clear the outer wall wasn't right and wouldn't work. Attempt 2 has just started so hoping for the best. Modelled in C4D of course.
