The other week I made a start on some gargoyle-esque designs with the 3D printer however on a recent search through the interweb-net-thing I came across a cool multi-part Tatar ornament that I just had to print and work onto a canvas.
For a while, the 3D printer has been unloved, but I have recently set it up again in order to start making for things for the new home.
In this post, I will share with you a quick decorative technique that I tried out.Read More »
Hallo you. Just a brief one for this week’s 3D Thursday to let you know that I now have an account over on My Mini Factory where I will be uploading some of my 3D designs for you to make use of.
On this website, you can grab the files free and feel safe in the knowledge that they have been 3D print tested, twice!Read More »
In this blog post, and accompanying video, I will be showing you how to design your own floral button ready for 3D Printing in Microsoft 3D Builder.
Have you been following this year’s adventures in 3D design and printing? If so, you will likely be delighted to hear that it is once again Thursday so I am ready to dive into another project.
3D Printing returns to the blog in 2018 with a range of ideas for creating some cool projects and tutorials.
This post will feature a video tutorial on how to make an assortment of shaped beads with a hole through the centre for threading.
Best of all it is the first in a three-part series that will help you get to grips with designing things in Microsoft 3D Builder!
Sadly I didn’t have time to finish the box mentioned in last week’s post, however, I have been able to put together a short video to show you how to create a cube box, onto which you could weld a decorative 3D design, using Microsoft 3D Builder.Read More »
Phew! What a week! Defo glad to be home and cracking on with more work.
In the meantime I didn’t get to show you the finished napkin ring that I made with the CoLiDo 3d pen the other day so, guess what I’m showing you in this post…?
Right! I’ve had a 3D printing pen for as long as I’ve had a 3D printer but sadly haven’t really had much time to play so I cleared a small window in my diary and sat myself down with what I hope would be as exciting as the 3D printer.
What did I discover? Read on to find out …
Watcha me old muckas. Bit of a quickie bonus post for the 3D Thursday series today as I keep harping on about these free 3D design software programs and never really getting you the chance to show them.
For that there reason I have cobbled together a quick video to show you the super simple Microsoft 3D builder program in the hope that it dispells the myth that design for 3D printing has to involve complex and really hard to master software.
This week I was having a wander and on passing my local charity shop, noticed an analogue alarm clock in the window so stopped for a closer look. As I looked closer a light shone down from the heavens and a chorus of inspirational voices burst forth …
If you don’t think I’ve finally lost it then please do read on to find out what happened next …
Crumbs, another week gone by? Now if only I could print me some extra days!
In the meantime I will have to settle for printing some fabulous inclusions for projects that I am working on.
Got a cool one to share with you today.
Hello again. My foray into 3D design and printing continues and I thought that it was about time for my naughty sense of humour to make a little impact on the projects that I have been creating.
Just one more in this mini series of posts about my first steps in 3d printing – and quite a simple one too.
Been having another play with the CoLiDo 3d Printer and have come up with a couple of variations from a bust design that I found online.
Fancy a look?
Don’t worry, it’s the classical statue kind of bust – not the other kind.
