Re: To cold to go outside

Hi @Super66,

 

Many thanks for sharing your project. That sounds a great way to occupy yourself on a dreary day. How long did they take you to design? I'd love to get myself an entry-level printer, but I feel it might be a good idea to get something slightly better. It's amazing to see how affordable 3d printers have become in the last 10 years.

Re: To cold to go outside

I use Fusion 360 and I am learning that program, which slows me down. If you know Fusion or another CAD Program you are 1/2 way there.

It only took a few hours to design and 15 mins to print and twig the design a bit then reprint.I also filled in the red with nail polish, then 2 clear coats over them.

Mine is just an entry level printer, that was a good place for me to start. The only thing I would like is a bigger and heated plate, so I could make bigger things and use different Filament that requires a heated plate. But PLA Filament is still good for most things...
