    Dancing Beaver

    I have had my first 3d printer for about week and I think its been going non-stop 24/7 the entire time. I am having a blast with it. I come with a 3d background of making and selling cnc patterns so not new to 3d but completely new to 3d printing. Thankfully, about 90% of my knowledge from cnc is transferable to printing. The whole manifold thing is new to me but I am learning. One of the several figure I have made this last week. I've also been playing around making leather stamps with the printer. Like I said, a total blast.

    This figure is from a short animation I made for my wife's Twitch channel.

    Thank you. If I would have known how much 3d printers are I would have gotten one years ago.

    Though it really helps I have 3d modeling experience.

    which printer did you get ?

    And ecellent modelling skills !

    Wish I could do the artistic stuff.


    How are you doing the leather stamps ?

    I've tried various options over the years, none have been that succesful.

    Hi,

    I got an Anycubic Mega-X.

    Thanks!

    I made in 3d the negative of the model (picture enclosed) and then printed at 100% fill. I am still not sure how durable these will be long term but so far really impressed on what PLA can do. Used a clamp between two pieces of wood as the press. I haven't purchased a real press yet for my leather working.

    For your efforts I would say just keep trying. They do work but for me it's still trial and error. I had to print the skull twice because the first one was too shallow.

    Regards,
    OG

    Thanks for the comment. Most of the models I've been using were made for other purposes and I am now 3d printing them with a little bit of work on the models. I normally 3d model for short animations or cnc router patterns. The dancing beaver came from a short animation I made (see picture below).

    I normally use Blender3d and Zbrush for making my models.

    I'm trying to figure out what I want to print next.
