Spin & vape - ultimate geek relaxing combo by Staal June 01 2017

The man who introduce to us like one of the best printer in Denmark. And like we see from his work, he really is. He tried basically all of our materials and print it great. Peter Staal Hansen is working in his free time on many projects from drones to some nice gifts for friends. The man who smiles all the time, especially with emoticons.

 

Hello Staal, how are you?
Hello I'm fine. How are you?

Awesome! Which printers do you use for your work?
Ultimaker 2+, Ultimaker Original +, Afinibot A31 and Prusa i3 MK2.

We send you some materials for testing and like a joke one special PLA color for you. Was it a great choice?: )
I don't really know if it was a "good" color but everything looks good in PINK I guess?

That’s the sentence for Vertigo Grey. But Everybody's Magenta is pretty intense pink. What do you print out of it? It is a little challenge to send a man real pink PLA : )
I have made some fidget spinners and some tray holders for my vape juices and batteries.


Model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2356637  

Which printer did you used?
The Prusa i3 MK2
Hotend : 212 °C
Bed: 55 °C
Layer 0.3
Simplify3D for slicer.

You also did those models.... Why not just download something? Do you like to make your own models?
It's more fun to make you own models, and when you own 3D printers then why not? You will always learn something new when modelling. It should in my personal opinion be something every 3D printer owner should do.

What did you learn on this project?
To keep it simple and don't over do it when there is no need to do that.

What do you use for modeling?
I use Fusion 360. It’s a very powerful CAD program when you get to know it, and it's somewhat free to use. You can get a one year free license. I highly recommend it for anyone.

The stand for juices looks pretty easy to do, just some basic shapes boolean. But how to make the spinner shape, are there any recommendation you will give us?
For the spinners, get the basic shape down first (bearings) and then have fun with the other shape on it, and try to make one that don't look like all the other spinners. Make some patterns and see what happens. If you want to go discount on them use nuts on the arms instead of bearings. But keep in mind the heavier the arms are the faster and longer it will spin. Use a good bearing for the center.

Where is the central bearing from? Everybody are asking for where to get those...
They are from Aliexpress just search for Ceramic Bearings.

Did you use any special tricks to get nice prints from PLA? Its maybe the easiest material for printing, but do you have any tips for it?
I prefer to print in PLA. There really is no need to print in other type of filament for things that only have no other function than to stand still. PLA gives the best print result in my opinion, and is really easy to print with. If you have a good brand that is, and Fillamentum is a good PLA brand. I haven't had any issues with it yet.

Thank you, that's nice to hear. So any tips for beginners?
That's a tough question, since no printer is the same . A good first layer and speed is key to a good print. Keep first layer slow. If you want the good looking print don't print too fast with a Prusa styled printer even if it can.

How many vape juices do you have?
Way too many, or not enough I don't know, haven't counted them . ATM I like the Bubble Trouble from Big Mouth the most. I'm still "new" at vaping and need to test more flavours.

Are you the person who loves to make tricks with the smoke?
Not yet, but I do like big clouds.

And what the hell is this?:D
I know you have big hands so I printed a oversized spinner for 2 hands for you . Model made by Adriansm and almost scaled to max (270mm).

How much material did you used?
Over 300 gram.


Model of the big spinner: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2326127
Info: The big one is printed on Afinibot A31 (cr-10) the white one on Ultimaker 2+

So..... spin & vape. Ultimate geek relaxing combo.

 

Thank you, have a nice printing day and say hello to your boys (french bulldogs) : )
Your welcome and have a nice one.
