A Day in the Life of a 3d Print

Postby Dave » Tue Jan 31, 2017 11:25 pm

I thought someone might like to see some of the stuff that goes in to making our Pulp Alley 3d models.....

1. First I design the 3d model on the computer. This takes about 6-10 hours on average....

2. Next I lay out the print plate. In this example, I am printing four models plus a few other doodads....

3. And now the printer does its magic! ....

4. Although the print time can vary significantly, this job took just two hours and seventeen minutes....
Image


5. Then it is off to the power washer for a good bath....
Image


6. Finally, here are the finished models....

That's all there is to it! :D


HAVE FUN

interesting and much better results than my 3D-printer. Probably a bit more expensive the one you use :)

Dave,

What software are you using for the 3D Design? I am waiting on my own 3D Printer to get here to play around. As you may have seen on my facebook, I got the Epilog Laser cutter and engraver and using SketchUp to design, and AutoCAD to layout the drawings for the Laser cutter and engraver for the buildings. But a 3D modeler for 3D Printing would be good to know.

Thanks

Ron, I used Solidworks for these.

I have used AutoCAD to design 3d models as well, but I eventually switched to Solidworks. It took awhile to get it figured out, but it works great.
