My First Steps in 3d Printing – Part 4

May 6, 2017 — 14 Comments

Just one more in this mini series of posts about my first steps in 3d printing – and quite a simple one too.

This one was a straight forward download and print.

The file that I chose was a ceiling tile design. I chose it as I thought that it would work well as a decoration on the top of a plain MDF box that I had laying around.

Here is the print, with a coat of primer.

Really like this design. May have to print more than one.

Now, from here, the only thing that I did was to add some gilding polish very lightly so that only the contours caught the colour so not a huge amount for me to write about that.

About the only hint that I have is that I used Pinflair Glue Gel to stick the 3d print to the box. Ta-daaa!

Anyway, here’s a lovely little photo gallery.

Oh, I did coat the box base in the same primer/coloured gilding polish just to finish the design off.

Really like this one. Simple and without much effort but looking well classy – just like me?

Hehe, anyway, I’d best let you crack on with your morning/day/evening and get some stuff done myself.

Thank you for reading and I hope that you found this post interesting.

Will see you again soon with more of what I’ve been up to.

    Just bought the 3D printer and I just love the things you’ve done with it. Question: If I print out 6 squares can I join the separate pieces with the 3D pen and join a lid with small hinges and put the above design on the lid? I haven’t got the machine yet and my head is already spinning!!!

    Hi John, have been following your 3D printing with great interest. The decorative panel is fantastic. Not sure I can justify buying one just yet but you are doing a great job twisting my arm lol!

    Very effective! I am fascinated with watching the 3D printer but didn’t really see a use for one. My mind is slowly being altered – help! Liz X
