Fan art LEGO Parrot in human scale by agepbiz August 28 2018

Hello agepbiz! We’ve just watched your newest project – the fan art LEGO Parrot in human scale. It’s amazing! How did you get to this idea?
I grew up in the eighties playing a lot with Lego bricks. Lego has always been my favourite toy, and I kept that fascination into adulthood. I guess this is why Lego has influenced many of my personal projects. Lately, I have wanted to learn basic soldering, doing a project that combines both my passion for 3D modelling and electronics became my goal.

To technical things: You did all the work on it, so please tell us more about it.
I usually do all the 3D modelling in Autodesk 3ds Max. I have several printers, but since the parrot is so tall and I did not want to print the body in parts, I printed it on my Tevo Tornado due to the Tornados’ large print-size capability, although I have published a split version of the parrot for those with smaller 3D printers. My biggest challenge with this project was fitting the electronics the most elegant way. It was a lot of trial and error, but I ended up with a solution where I attached the speaker and the battery-holder inside the back cover.

Any tips for people who will download this project from Thingiverse, MyMinifactory, Cults3D, or Pinshape?
If people don’t want to tinker with electronics, I have also made and uploaded a solid version of the parrot so that they can print just the Parrot. I suggest printing the parts in the orientation I uploaded them.

Why did you choose Fillamentum?
The first spool I bought of Fillamentum gave me such a nice finish on the print that it was an easy choice to select Fillamentum for my next projects.

Do you have plans for the next project?
I have designed a series of print-in-place Surprise Eggs toys that I want to expand upon. I also have another big lego project in my backlog. I have become fond of combining 3D printing and electronics so I might do more of that in the future.

Vertigo Starlight - A New Jewel from Fillamentum August 21 2018

Fillamentum is pleased to announce a brand new color shade from the very successful „Vertigo“ line. It’s got a deep-blue color and hint of sparkly passion - these are a few of the main ingredients we used when baking our new delicious shade. And the result!? Absolutely fantastic!

Whether you watched or not, there’s been the longest total lunar eclipse of the century last July. That’s how our new shade the Vertigo Starlight looks like; it’s a perfect dark deep-blue sky full of little stars like on the night.

Haven’t you heard of our best line, the Vertigo, yet? PLAs in TOP Fillamentum quality allows easy printing even with tricky details and excellent lamination of the printed object. The PLA filament is made of natural ingredients and is biodegradable. The entire Vertigo series is non-abrasive

Spores - 3D generated models by Fernando Jerez August 08 2018

Hi all, I’m Fernando Jerez, a computer science teacher, amateur designer and 3D-printing hobbyist. This set of pieces is the 4th design of “Plastic Reef” series where I tried to recreate weird undersea creatures using procedural and generative algorithms implemented in Openscad.

The style and look of the “Spores” are inspired by Ernst Haeckel drawings. I’m fascinated with this kind of drawings and the organic structures that seem like they have been made by some sort of algorithm.

As with much of my procedural stuff, I used Openscad as a tool to implement this one. I needed some sort of algorithm that could generate a big variety of different patterns but keeping a similar structure.

After a few failed approaches, I went into ‘loops’ so I improvised a mix of formulas to get a sinusoidal path that twists itself to make an organic shape then populate the path with balls and spikes. Tweaking path and distribution of balls/spikes, there’s a lot of weird organic creature to be discovered. My intention was to make a dozen, but finally, I couldn’t resist and render up to 30 STLs.

Community project

The nicest part of this project has been promoted by Laila from Fillamentum. She has made a huge effort to involve makers from the 3D-printing community to test, print, and send the pieces to Fillamentum.

Lot of people got involved, and for me as a hobbyist designer, my best revenue is seeing other people enjoying and printing my stuff. When I see those figures printed at such high quality, it feels great.

Big thank you goes to all makers who made these awesome models: 3DMN, SADDEXdesign, Filament Frenzy, https://futlab.cc, Filip Žákovec, Lab.cafe, Leonardo Delgado, Open Innovations, Openfil, RavMeimad, Stereolab & Trilab.

 

Gallery

So this has been a nice and fun project, I’m still impressed by all the makers involved and the support that Fillamentum made for us.

I just hope you find these designs nice, print them, and give to your best friends or family.

This is not a functional design, but it’s cool!!!! : )

 

Check the project: Spores

 

Cheers!!

3D Printed Watches and Jewellery by 3LOBIT July 10 2018

3LOBIT is a Czech company which aims to show its customers how to use 3D printing in their daily lives. They focus on creating original jewellery, design products, prototypes, and production of broken machinery parts. Using the state-of-the-art Ultimaker with FDM method, 3LOBIT also welcomes customised orders.

Hey! We’ve been following you on Instagram, and we’re excited that you’ve decided to use our product to make a new collection of watches! What other products, except for watches, do you sell?
Greetings to Fillamentum! We’re glad you’ve noticed our products with which we use the materials from your company Fillamentum. The decision to use your products came after a recommendation from the seller of Ultimaker printers (3Dwiser.com). They told us they’re hassle-free and have practically the same level of quality as the genuine materials for the printer. We got to making fashion accessories rather by chance when we made the first brooch with a motif of deer. It sold like hot cakes, so we’ve decided to extend the range of animal brooches to other animals. Over time, we’ve added earrings, necklaces, and recently, the watches. Apart from that, we of course focus on making models and promotional items.

How did you come up with the idea to make watches?
We wanted to extend our range with something appealing to new customers. Watches seemed like a perfect fit because we couldn’t find any other producer on the market. The boom of watches made of wood also inspired us, and we wanted to come up with something new. Initial designs were rather classical with the option to use 3D printing with elastic materials such as TPU. This way wasn’t ideal. Over time we switched to more pure design and an elegant combo with polypropylene band.

Are you working on some new designs?
In the next few months, we’d like to get down to development and production of home lighting products where we’d also like to use 3D printing. Either as support for production or for printing individual parts. One of our most exciting projects, where we used strings from Fillamentum, was the design lamp FLOLA.

Have you met with any challenges selling products using 3D printing?
Practically every job is a challenge because we’re trying to make the products look the best.

Do you have any funny stories from designing for 3D printing?
We don’t have many funny experiences with 3D printing as such, but we often take the printer with us and show it to people in our sales stand. Some visitors respond in a funny way when they see the printer in action.

What do you mean by saying that visitors responded funnily to seeing 3D printing? What comments do they make?
People aren’t familiar with how an FDM 3D printer works: some even asked us to give them some chilled beverages or to tap them an ice-cream. When we explained to them that what they actually see in front of them is a printer and not a fridge, they immediately changed their minds and wanted to print money.

What do you appreciate most about Fillamentum?
We like the wide range of colours suitable when combining two and more colours. Also, as we’ve said at the beginning, printing with the Fillamentum materials works perfectly with our Ultimaker printer. There are many producers with cheaper products, but we prefer going for better quality and trouble-free printing.

What’s your favourite combination of colours?
Our fave combination is probably PLA Vertigo Gray with White or PLA Silver with Magenta. They are stylish, and all materials with silver glitter perfectly mask FDM printing imperfections.

What advice would you give to a person starting a business using 3D printing technology?
It’s important to first consider for what they’ll use the printer. 3D printing with the FDM method isn’t omnipotent – it’s got some limits. Printing complex mechanical parts and with materials like Nylon, PC, or TPU is quite demanding, and you need to design them in the way that makes their production possible. Printing from the PLA material isn't complicated, but it also isn’t entirely suitable for printing heat-resistant stuff or parts.

The Fillamentum company succeeded in the START Prague Market May 25 2018

Yesterday the Žižkov television tower became the place where the 14-day period of subscription period peaked. Investors had the opportunity to place their demand for the purchase of shares in our company, FILLAMENTUM a.s., specialising in the production of special polymer products used in automobile, engineering, and food industries, as well as in the area of hobby and design.

Historically first Start Day lasted only six hours – it was enough for final presentations for all three companies applying for investors’ interest, finalising noting, price setting, and releasing final results. Our company, FILLAMENTUM a.s., has succeeded in closing the book of orders as the first! In short time, we reached the maximum of subscriptions of all planned 28 800 shares! The price of one stock was set to 825 CZK and the issues, managed by Roklen Corporate Finance, even ignited such interest among investors that the demand for our shares exceeded the offered amount by 1,021 times.

“When we saw the Fillamentum company last Autumn, we were sure that it would work out,” says the boss of the Prague’s market Petr Koblic.

“The success of Fillamentum proves confidence of Czech investors in the domestic technology company that is expanding to foreign markets this way. We are witnessing an iconic milestone for the Czech capital market and also for the company itself. The impact of the issuance is not only economic, but it also regards marketing,” summarised the Managing Director of Roklen Corporate Finance, Jakub Burda.

We are planning to use the funds raised as a part of the public offering to invest in expanding domestic production capacities and building production and business facilities in the USA which makes up and essential part of the 3D printing global market. Our presentation to investors is available to watch at the page Patria.cz.

Epic 3D Printed Costume Head with LEDs by Mariday May 18 2018

We are always curious to see how people use our materials all around the world. Join us in the Mariday workshop - costume maker for furries. We spotted his new 3D printed head with LEDs, and we're impressed.

Hello there! Here is the most epic project we have seen lately! Have you made it all yourself from its ideation, modelling, printing, to installing the LEDs?
I've seen plenty of people making costumes and placing LEDs as an afterthought. I wanted to show the makers that you can use LEDs to make your costumes glow naturally and look almost bioluminescent.

So I decided to trial this idea with a fluffy arm. It contained around 300 LEDs driven by the Raspberry Pi microprocessor.

I got such a positive response at Confuzzled, the largest UK furry convention, that I decided to make a second arm and head.

I've been 3D modelling and printing for five years now, so printing the head was a perfect solution. Especially now when you can get clear PLA which print exceptionally well.

The clear PLA allowed me to fit the LEDs inside the head. It means that placing the fur on the outside diffuses the light and makes the fur perfectly smooth.

The head currently holds about 400 individually addressable LEDs, and the final costume should hold about 1,000 with a maximum current draw of approximately 30 amps.

The head is probably a new thing with furry costume makers. What response have you received from the community?

The 3D printed head bases are quite rare in the furry community for one main reason: To create a base like this, you need an artistic eye and need to be able to model and design for 3D printing.

Lots of artists can sculpt digitally, but not many can convert this into something printable.

I am currently trying to open up 3D printing to furries by starting a free online model repository. The repository will contain printable 3D models of claws, beaks, heads, horns, and more from modellers around the world. It will also provide a platform for selling prints and connecting artists with people who can model for 3D printing.

Furries love anything new and innovative. With this project, I want to demonstrate just how well 3D printing can work in fandom.

 

Btw is it really wearable with all those wires inside? Have you tried it?

When it comes to the head I've built and the arms, it needs a little context. These costumes are often referred to as “Fursuits” or just “suits”. They can look adorable on the outside but are incredibly hot, sweaty, and uncomfortable on the inside. The best way I can describe what it’s like is to imagine wearing a sofa.

Lining one of these with LEDs is like wearing a sofa and heated blanket at the same time. So to mitigate this, my suit has high air flow cooling fans, smart power management, and even built-in water cooling.

So is it comfortable?
Absolutely not.
Can you survive in it without long-term injury?
Just about.
Is it enjoyable?
Absolutely!

OMG, you really consider how easy technic can change this whole. Amazing! How does the cooling system work? Does the whole body suit include some flexible pipes?

In some suits, there are freezer packs; these work well around the torso. However, this doesn't work very well when you need to chill a small specific area like your arms or head.

The cooling system is rather simple; it relies on a removable reservoir, diaphragm pump, and several meters of highly flexible silicone tubing.

After filling the reservoir with ice and water, easily provided by most bars for free, the pump circulates the water around the suit, cooling every inch evenly.

 

Will there also be fur on it just as on your arm?

The head and arms will get covering from 3 - inch acrylic fur. The main difference is that the head will be trimmed down to show off the higher LED resolution.

 

Btw. How did you make the LED lights? Is there some Raspberry Pi helping with it?

When it comes to LEDs, lots of people power them with Arduino or similar microcontroller. However, I use the Raspberry Pi as they have much more processing power and networking capability. It allows me to make a much more IOT (Internet Of Things) costume.

Because of the Pi’s networking capability, I can connect my costumes to the web which allows them to be controlled remotely from a web interface, automatically update software, download new effects, and control them with wireless controllers such as the Wii Remote.

The Pi’s processing power also allows for more complexity in the system, for instance, 3D physics simulations, image processing on the fly, and it can even track eye movement.

The structure of the code is designed to be very modular. For instance, when the system starts up, each module gets tested on its own to ensure that the software and hardware cooperate.

This is enabled by the Raspberry Pi’s ability to use multiprocessing. This is where lots of code runs simultaneously and independently.

It essentially means that if you’re performing and suddenly the gyroscope breaks, causing its associated module to hang, all the other modules will continue to operate regardless.

So you are a professional furries costume maker or its just a hobby?

By trade, I'm a Computer Scientist and software engineer. However, my passion lies in making, performing, and teaching.

I've been in the furry fandom for around seven years now. I joined because I was amazed at the craftsmanship going into their costumes. Since then, I have been a part of so much more than just the costumes that everyone sees.

I still firmly believe there's no such thing as a “grown-up”, so even if its a little silly, find a fandom, take your printer with you, and I guarantee you won't regret it.

If you can, please, could you tell us what this furry thing is in general?

The furry fandom is a group of people who are a fan of fictional “anthropomorphism” or animals showing human characteristics. Characters like those in the Disney film Zootopia, Wes Anderson’s The Isle Of Dogs; and even Mickey Mouse are perfect examples.

Most Furries have a unique personal character or “Fursona”. Some furs use this as a goal, someone more outgoing or bold. Others use it as escapism, allowing them to express a side to them they can't live in their everyday life.

In summary, it allows people to express themselves. It may be through songs, stories, games and costumes, also known as fursuits.

The amazing thing is that you can completely reinvent yourself and be whoever you want. I've gone to a furry convention and just over breakfast, made friends with a binman, lawyer, material scientist and musician. Everyone gets equal treatment, and that's why the people I've met over the last seven years mean so much to me.

Fillamentum, one of the leading 3D printer filament manufacturers, is entering the Czech Stock Exchange May 09 2018

On the 28t​ h​ of April, The Czech National bank has approved Fillamentum’s, entrance into the Czech Stock Exchange.

Value through innovation.... is the credo of this start-up company that received attention from NWT Holdings that acquired Fillamentum in 2011. FIllamentum, a recognized global brand, provides its materials to many Companies as well as the U.S. Army. The Company focuses on manufacturing polymer products such as technical tubes, hoses, and strings that are used in automotive, engineering, the food industry, as well as hobby and design. The fastest growing segment is the manufacture of 3D printing materials.

Fillamentum is the world’s leading filament manufacturer with first quality materials and a vast color palette. According to the Chairman of the Board, Martina Vitkova: “The superior quality of the Filamentum product can be seen immediately. In contrast, other filament Brands commonly produced in China are curved, have varying thickness, and are cheaply packaged. Some look like a wound-up extension cord.”

Fillamentum has experienced steady, progressive growth since startup.

FIllamentum is planning on using funds obtained through the public stock offering on modern production lines in the Czech Republic, as well as expansion of production to the U.S. According to Fillamentum GM Josef Dolecek : ”We are in a very progressive business, especially 3D printing. Thanks to our experience with processing polymers, we were able to get into the business at the right time, pioneering and even establishing trends in the industry. Fillamentum is looking to continue their forecasted expansion, and this Public Offering is key to our growth strategy.”

As a result of our extensive research and development, and collaboration with Czech and Slovakian Universities, we continue to maintain a technological edge over competitors. Our current forward-looking business model is key as we strive to continue leading the industry in 3D printing filaments.

Fillamentum, with its exceptional innovation and quality, is among the World’s top 5 filament manufacturers.

We are proud to announce our new shade in the favourite Crystal Clear series – Smaragd Green.

As its name says, the color comes from Smaragd – Emerald stone, and our designers developed it after many attempts to find just the perfect tone.

And here it comes: A magnificent transparent green color in the Fillamentum quality!

Honestly, it’s the best transparent PLA I have ever used in my opinion, and it can take some beating. The main thing is that likes heat and colour is best at 215 to 220 C”, Filament Frenzy.

The Crystal Clear series is highly recommended for its high quality of printing even in tricky details, and an excellent lamination of the printed object.

PLA Crystal Clear is made from a material with improved heat resistance in comparison with standard PLA filaments.

Thanks to its optical properties, objects printed from this filament have high clarity and gloss. In a thin layer, the product excels in its transparency.

PLA Crystal Clear filament is made of natural ingredients and is easily biodegradable by composting. It complies with food contact regulations.

Fillamentum guarantees the high precision of filament dimensions within the tolerance of +/- 0,05 mm strictly controlled throughout the production.

Easter with CocoKarl March 28 2018

Tereza Janečková is a young, energetic designer from the Czech Republic who is collaborating with us on her project CocoKarl. It first started as a series of 3D printed objects; then she came up with a fashion show of accessories, later an expo with COK 3D printer, and finally, she brings new and novel ideas for her project - COCOKARL every day.


Hello Tereza, who is CocoKarl?
I am a hen farmer. CocoKarl is a cock that I’ve trained to snort his own name CocoKaaaarl :)

Why did you choose this particular chicken as your inspiration?
My show breed has fallen prey to a marten. It slayed seven of the beautiful Paduanek hens and ate them. I’m a designer, and that's why I printed my Paduanek hens on 3D printer CocoPrint. But of course, I still miss the real ones …

We googled, and this kind of hens have been bred for aesthetic purposes for many centuries. Their name comes from the Italian city of Padua. Why did you choose this breed?
Paduan is a luxurious design hen, in style, it resembles Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. It’s been popular mostly in France where it was admired in posh royal gardens of Louvre. And there is also another part of my extensive project CocoKarl, which I presented at the renowned exhibition DesignBlock. In front of the historical building of Expo 58, I installed Porche luxurious coop for a city park.

More about it on Artmix - Czech television

Is this the only breed you farm, or you have some others, too?
My precious warrior rooster is my big inspiration for the jewellery collection Karfiol (cauliflower in Czech language). Thanks to him they get credits on Prague Fashion Week 2017.

 

How did a young woman from Prague (the capital of the Czech Republic) become a farmer in 2018?
I’m an Eco Urban Designer. We have been farming chickens from my childhood because eggs are the food of the future. There are people who come for my home-farmed eggs from the other side of Prague : ).

You have already mentioned the CocoPrint (from Trilab). So… have you solved the important question: What was first? The hen or the egg?: )
Ahahha :). The first was COSMOS. Then COCOPRINT and then Luxury EGGo Spiny Design :).

What are you planning next with CocoKarl?
We are all one universe. And my mission here is to deal with ecology. Thank you for sharing.

Interview: Van Dragon’s fleet. From idea to 3D print February 27 2018

We just noticed you on Instagram thanks to your boats. Is that some bigger project?
I'll split that into two sections. The bathtub boats, i. e. small boats that can swim. And my 1:1000 collection. The 1:1000 series is definitely a bigger project and runs as long as I have fun with it. Also in this series my focus is on the ships.


You are not just author of great mini prints, but also a designer of all those models. What inspires you?
With the small boats it's just the fun of the simple form. I let myself be inspired by templates of different kinds. Comics, real models or a mix of both. There's only one requirement for me, it should be swimming.

In the 1:1000 series, logically real model and my son.
He was actually the reason why I started it. At first there were no real boats for the bathtub, so I just started with it. After that he discovered my Titanic books and since then he loves the ship. Since he always wanted to know how big one ship was compared to the other, I had the idea to make him understand it in real life. So my 1:1000 series was born.

Everybody would like to know also some info about what are you using for modeling, slicing and printing. So ...what are the best “helpers” for you?
I use Blender to construct the models. Because it is free software, it is accessible to everyone. As a slicer I use Slic3r from Prusa otherwise I could not use the multicolor function.

Simplfiy3D is also a great program, but costs a few Euros. I can also recommend the 3DBuilder for post-processing. It is pre-installed from Windows10. Simple but effective. Especially the repairing of objects makes it fast and quite reliable.

My main printer is a Prusa MK2s MMU. You don't have to say anything about that, almost everyone knows about it.

Could you please tell us more about the proces of preparing model? We mean the 1:1000 ones. You get some photo, place it as a background in modeling software and try to recreate it? Or you make some research how it looks like, make some scratch etc.?
Creating the scale models naturally requires much longer preparation. This starts as usual with the research. It can take a while to get all the documents together. With the Titanic it was still quite simple but already the RMS Mauretania has devoured more time here.
The basic requirement for each model is of course a suitable floor plan. If you don't have this, it is actually impossible to construct something neatly. As already suspected, this is then used in the construction program as a blueprint. Thus, 3D construction can be carried out directly on the drawing. Everything else is then created step by step from the pictures and drawings. This process is not really spectacular, just hard work.



Where did you get blueprints?
If you are lucky, you can find them on the internet (picture search), otherwise you would have to buy them. Unfortunately, good blueprints are not always easy to get.


Your Instagram profile is relatively new. Could we see your older works somewhere else?
Actually, all I have drawn in the short time is to see on Thingiverse and of course on Instagram.
What is next on your 3D printing to-do list?
In the 1:1000 series I am drawing the first four funnel liner. The "Emperor William the Great". After that I already have a list of the models my son would like to have. My limit is unfortunately only the size of the printer.
On the bathtub boats, I don't really plan, that comes from the belly.

Thank you for the great questions
Thank you for your time!

Galactic British Empire - kids futuristic set from Ian B January 23 2018

If you are following our Twitter, you surely noticed him. Ian B is one of our favourite maker, who is relatively new in 3D printing, but the passion with which he is doing his project is amazing. Take a look on his biggest one - GBE - Galactic British Empire - a growing 3D printed playset for children. And older children : ).

It’s now some months we started collaborating. You told us about your project and from small one, now you are having pretty big playing set for kids. Please, tell us more about it.

The idea of making a playset is almost as old as I am (which is very old), as I used to make my own 2D playmats when I was a child, I hated being restricted by what was available or what my parents could afford to buy me so I used white card, pencil crayons/felt tip pens and my imagination.

I first got involved in 3D printing in 2015, having bought a printer for work. Using the printer there and learning more about the technology and 3D modelling convinced me that I should get one for home in early 2017. I went for the Creality CR10 and as soon as I had it and started printing less practical prints my thoughts immediately went back to the playset of my youth. Whilst my initial idea was a similar town playset as I had made in 2D all those years ago, very quickly the build volume of the CR10 made me think ROCKETS :-).

I should point out that I do have a 2 yr old son and a 1yr old daughter and so this playset is for them to play with when they’re older …….. Honest!

I probably spent 2 to 3 months working on the designs before releasing them, initially on Thingiverse, and then after the initial release I tasked myself with releasing a new model every week for the first few months. To date there are 15 designs in the collection on Thingiverse although a few of them have multiple models so I think a total of 39 models and some of them are multi-part.

 

What type of objects are there?

Currently in the playset are rockets, aircraft, vehicles, robots, landing pads and road sections, plus a couple of miscellaneous set dressing kind of items. In work for the future I have more of the same, along with buildings and people, although the playset is sized to allow for play with Lego Minifigures, who doesn’t like Lego after all.

Makers can find your set on Thingiverse. Is the set done or you will be adding more objects?

I have started releasing models on MyMiniFactory, Cults3D and Pinshape too, but I do like the structure of Thingiverse. I still have some unreleased models, both in work, and finished but not printed, but I’m taking a little break from the playset at the moment. However I will definitely be expanding the playset further in the future and already have a big list of model ideas.

You get from us the widest amount of materials in our history and prepared all these amazing models! If you need to pick up, which is you most favourite TOP 5 materials of them?

It really did help in an unexpected way when you very generously donated so much material. In addition to the obviously great fact that I didn’t need to buy all the plastic I was using, I did find that it helped boost my imagination, I actually wanted to find a way to use all off the PLA Extrafill colours. So the wide range of colours you have literally inspired me, although it was funny that most of the first batch I requested were different greys (Science Fiction will do that!). It’s hard to choose a top 5 but I’ll have a go (this can and will regularly change)

#1 Vertigo Grey - This is the easiest choice, it prints so well and looks great, and I find it is really versatile, I’ve used it for all sorts of things but it was initially the colour of the Shades

#2 Rapunzel Silver - Another great finish and looks amazing, no surprise that the original hero starfighters, the Whittle class, were printing in this colour

#3 Pearl Green - Looks so cool and my LandRover inspired trucks look so right in that colour

#4 Pearl Ruby Red - Another colour that I just want to print in, so far not much in the playset uses it but that may change in the future

#5 Gold Happens - I don’t normally like gold in real life but this is crazy nice, I really love my Brunel Class Rocket printed in this

Honourable mention to Metallic Grey, which the Trevithick class is printed in, and Vertigo Galaxy which I like more and more each time I use it, both colours I’ve grown to love.

That’s so great to hear. Thank you Ian 💛. This is why we love this job! Btw the colour combination of Rapunzel Silver and Iceland blue details on one of the rocket is really awesome.

Yes the Whittle StarFighter has the Iceland Blue cockpit, it really looks nice against Rapunzel Body I thought.

 

And, is there any special model in the set, which you like?

That is way too hard a question, I love the Brunel rocket as it was the development of my original style, the trucks definitely evoke the spirit of LandRover as I’d wanted, RoboTommy is my little dude, the Avenger heralded the shades and the Deathbringer as the ultimate progression of my aircraft designs.

You made not just models, but also some story about (you can find it here). You didn’t forget also to add there commander Tom Jackson : ).

Having a back story was something I liked when I saw the dragons made by Louise Driggers’, whether people printing the models wanted to read it or not I liked the idea and it also helped drive the style consistency and model ideas. Plus I am, amongst other things, a frustrated novel writer, I’d always wanted to write a SF story for my elder boys, who are now in their twenties, but life got in the way, so this is an outlet for me and I’ll definitely be writing more in the future.

Tom was always going to have to make an appearance in the story, he’s my 3D Printing brother from another mother :-) and any chance to gently take the mickey out of him couldn’t be passed up! It’s also my way of acknowledging all the encouragement and help that Tom gave me whilst I was dreaming up this playset, he has done a LOT of test printing along the way. He was also, and I’ve never told him this, the original inspiration when I named the robots, they were going to be called RoboToms but then the old wartime nickname for British soldiers seemed like a great fit.

You prepared also decorations for last Christmas. The snowman and also, you are designer of our first official Christmas tree which we love. What will be next? What are you working on now?

The Fillamentum Christmas Tree was a really interesting exercise for me, working to someone else’s guidelines like this was equal parts fun and frustrating :-D. Mr Snow was created in about 25 minutes on my lunch break but is one of my favourite models to date, I loved making the multipart model and printing in multiple materials.

I decided to take a short break from designing to re-energise myself, so I’ve mainly been concentrating on printing models from other designers and trying to improve my YouTube content. I do have a lot of ideas though so I will be back modelling very soon. And I also have a number of ideas for collaborations, mainly with Tom.

We know the struggle. Making real someones else visions is really a hard quest, but you survived : ). We are watching your Youtube updates and looking to hear about you more!

We saw your Alien rifle from District 9 film. Man, that’s amazing! Is it for somebody special?

Thx for kind words, actually I made 2 of those, one for a collector and director first-time filmmaker, City Impact Church pastor of a movie called Broken, also the second one went to set director of TV show called The Expanse, and because of messages like this “Yes I received the Blaster and it's spectacular. We love it and thank you for the “paint job” (printed in Your colors-not painted) Thank you again for the work and attention to detail.” I love to make stuff.



The gun is really stunning with all details. How many hours did you spend making it?

In total I don’t really know, cause there are some attempts till you have the quality of print as you want, but overall 100+ hours, also weathering and decals weren’t done by me so am not including that in making hours.


How does look like the process of making? You model it, print….

I was contacted, to make a rifle sturdy enough from District 9 and as reference images I used weta workshop model, it took me around 10 hours to model it and 5 days to print it. I have 2 Original Prusa MK2’s so it went faster, also I like to see layers, cause that’s the beauty of 3D printing, but some people don’t, so if I have time I’ll prime it and sand it, that’s the job that takes most of the time, if you use low-quality filaments, but I don’t use them and I like to print with high details and lowest layer heights depending on a model.



We know you are working on a lot of props for cosplayers and fans. What was the biggest challenge as a project for you?

As I am still learning, every project has up’s and down’s, every project has their own difficulties, as my wife used to say: “Every time you are moaning about something and you still manage to work it out”. For every maker that’s starting a project, just one thing to say, don’t stop believing that you can’t finish it. One of the first and biggest projects of mine was Chopper motorcycle nixie clock, it was the most difficult project to model and to make it printable, still don’t know how I did it… :).



Is this all a hobby or your “main work”?

This is a hobby, I always liked to make stuff. When I saw a 3D printer for the first time couple of years ago, I wanted to try it. The irony was that I didn’t have any experience with modeling software, but I found many sites with free 3d models, so I bought it and printed only one cookie cutter in 6 months cause I didn’t know what to print :). I wanted to sell it, until a fan of Star Wars contacted me to make him laser beam for  diorama. He didn’t have a model and I didn’t know how to make it. So I started to investigate modeling software and learning them. That was my start in the 3D printing world. I am fascinated with creating something with only one line or spline as a start and creating the whole model that is in my hands in a couple of hours. Can’t remember where I saw it, but one sentence is in my head: “3D Printer isn’t gonna make you a designer” and that’s 100% true. I should know, my first 3D printer was collecting dust for 6 months.

Someday I would love this to be my day job but I think that I need to learn more and more.

Why did you choose us for material suppliers?: )

I tried many filaments before, from many manufacturers, cheap and expensive, I don’t really remember but I think that I got a sample of your PLA Rapunzel Silver, I fell in love with it. It’s inexpensive, great colors of PLA that I use most, and details are what I was looking for, also easy to print with.

3D printed Cement wagon for garden model railway by M. Neubauer November 08 2017

If you did not attend TCT in Birmingham you missed to see an unique printed model made by Michal Neubauer. He had prepared a special fully printed cement transport wagon with painted details. Let’s speak to him about more details of this project.



Hello Michal. We’ve been on TCT expo in Birmingham where you prepared something special for us...
Hello to everybody! I have a special surprise for you. It’s a freight wagon for a garden model railway to transport a cement. I draw a 3D model, it is not made from a scratch. I used the model on a smaller scale as a pattern. I’m glad I finished it before TCT start.



Which scale did you use?
The wagon will be on a garden scale. The default scale is 1:22,5. However, from time to time it is better to change the scale a little bit accordingly to the ratio of size between locomotive and wagon respectively.

This is not the first time you have printed something. How did you find this hobby?
I started with a garden model railway 5 years ago. I prepared for my dad a big gift for his 50’s. It was the garden railroad in our garden with one locomotive and one wagon. After dad’s 50’s birthday, I had an idea to create and print the wagon on the 3D printer. It is a service car. It can be partly used for mail transport too.

So do you expect that the project will grow in the future?
Yes. My idea is to become a manufacturer of unique small wagon series, which none of the garden railway manufacturers offer. In the coming winter time, I would like to design more new accessories, wagons and even a locomotive, and hopefully, a 4-wagon unit. So stay tuned.

Which kind of printer and material did you use for the project?
I use the custom-made 3D printer, it’s a big brother of DeltiX from Trilab. I called it DeltiX XXL, current DeltiX XXL is a unique model, no one has the same printer. It was developed with the aim to print wagons and locomotives for a garden railway. I chose PLA Extrafill Traffic White as material. PLA has the best printer parameters for printing larger components as wagons.


If used outside, would not be better to choose ASA? We know it’s a bit complicated to print than with PLA, but it’s the material made for outdoor use.
Yeah, I know that ASA is known as a material for outdoor use. I am going to use the ASA for accessories, which are intended for permanent placement outdoors. I tested that direct sunlight beams cause softening and deformation of the model after about 4 hours of sunlight. So when you use a wagon for about 1-2 hours on the railways, there is no need to be afraid of any damage of the wagon. The surface finish of cementing and painting helps the model to resist the sunlight beams.

Are there some special colors for printed parts like these?
As a finishing procedure, I use polyester putty and airbrush color to make the surface smooth and colored. Every color which is used for the real wagon is from RAL color system. I use the same RAL colors as used in the original one.

It can be pretty complicated to find the exact same colors which were used in a real life. Do you also combine shades you need sometimes?
Every real wagon has its own colors which were selected according to their technical standards. These standards were described in the technical documentation for each wagon. Nowadays, it is technically impossible to find more than 60-years old documentation for wagons. It is easier to find the real wagon, take the RAL sampler with and find the corresponding color with the real color on the wagon. Often the hardest thing is to find the wagon itself.


Thank you for the interview and we are looking forward to your next projects!

Magigoo, trustworthy adhesion for perfect results November 06 2017

Do you know Magigoo? No? So let’s read this interview with nice guys from the company, which is producing this 3D printing adhesive. How they made products from their own needs and about the last upgrade for better usage.

 

Hello Magigoo! How are you?
Hi, we are excited to tell our story.

Your first product were born like two years ago. Everybody remember that time of creativity needed to fix prints to bed. Stick glue, super glue, hair spray etc. For those who don’t know you, why is Magigoo so effective print adhesive?
Initially as part of our offering we were providing 3D printing services.
This meant that we were printing constantly and at a point we were so frustrated with prints constantly failing and warping. The next step was to try what was available on the market. In all cases we weren’t satisfied. Some stuck to much, other not enough, some annoying to apply, others toxic and so on. Having tested everything else we knew exactly what we wanted and what we did.

Keith, one of the founders, is PhD in material sciences and decided to make a smart glue - something that would be easy to apply and that would release the print fairly easily at the same time allowing easy cleaning. This was initially just made for internal use, nothing fancy just a liquid in an old nutella jar in our printing lab, but it worked!!

It was only later that we decided to share it with others and transformed it from a ‘nutella jar’ to a market ready product. Now we had also finally given it its appropriate name ‘Magigoo’. So in all, we’d say Magigoo is done with a lot of care, by professionals specifically with 3D printing use in mind. Here extensive testing was done that batches are always giving the same sure adhesion and release. Some reformulations were done since its launch based on customer feedback and also to make sure it fits with the latest legislations and also keep safe to use.

From our users we have learned that Magigoo is not only used as a glue, but also due to its easy release as a release agent on PEI sheets or other beds which over-adhere. For example PEI sheets when printing using TPUs or PET.

 


There is some special legislation rules for “printing glue”?
Being a glue it falls within chemical legislations. This is predominantly the REACH regulation in Europe. If a product was to use biocides there would also be other restrictions in place.

You do have an upgraded new “head”, how did you come with this idea and why did you choose this form of it?
Actually the whole bottle has changed. With our last container with rubber applicator we gathered a lot of user feedback. In most of the cases what we heard is that user love Magigoo and it works as promoted, but the user experience of applying it was not that simple as we wished for.

So we tried out tens of applicators, spoke to multiple packaging companies worldwide and found what we think an ideal solution. The foam on a tip was chosen by us after going through months of research, testing on different surface at different surface temperatures and considering a whole list of other variables based on the previous lessons learnt.

The new applicator allows to distribute Magigoo in consistently even layer, something that would make Magigoo work even better. The flexible bottle gives you that extra control to squeeze more Magigoo if necessary.

We left a small part of our label transparent so that users could see how much of the glue is remaining, and to remind them to ‘shake it like they mean it’ before use.

I know it looks like a simple bottle, but in essence it is a two year evolution fueled by all the experiences and feedback. Here we have to be thankful to all our patient users and fans.  

 


Is Magigoo suitable for every material? And for every bed?
Magigoo as far as we are concerned should work on all the heated surfaces. We have tried it extensively on the glass and aluminium plates. We have reported results that it had worked well with ceramic beds as well. It will work less on the perforated beds - although this has been through customer feedback as we haven’t tried it much internally.

Many will ask, whether it works with cold bed. We have users who report it’s working, but without the change in temperature, there will be no easy release mechanism.

For materials, Magigoo covers majority of the materials. PLA, ABS, HIPS, PETG. In most of the cases we have really wonderful results. Then again, as anything in 3D printing, it may work less reliably with a mix of material (where PLA or ABS are mixed with other materials for extra effect, such as ABS/PC), or with material which is of bad quality or full of moisture.

Does the bed need to be cleaned after every print?
Well - what we keep saying is for really sure adhesion, one should clean the plate and re-apply Magigoo, but in reality many users don’t like doing that. We have heard users who are printing so many prints on one application that it would make our product the most cost effective than any other product out there. Good for the users for sure.

Will it stay sticky after printing? What to use to clean it?
The surface of the print should not be sticky to the touch. The bed can be easily cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth after use. Just water is enough to remove Magigoo.

Does it smell? Is it toxic to inhale?
Magigoo is a water based product and has been designed specifically to be non toxic and to not make use of hazardous chemicals. The odour should be faint if at all noticeable. This makes our product safe to use and also pleasant. In an effort to make the product even safer, apart from not having any solvents we also do not use any preservatives! This means that in rare occasion there might be some product spoilage. The Magigoo will still work fine but in such a case an odour will develop. If you notice this problem just get in touch and we will be happy to help!

What would you love to say to people who are reading this? : )
From our end we just want people to be printing like crazy and pushing the boundaries as much as possible!!! We have a new amazing tool within our grasp let’s make sure we make the most of it. If anyone ever needs our input on their project we are always ready to help.

Best 3D prints of last week #5 August 21 2017

Hello,

This was a strong week. Was really complicated to choose the best. And that is awesome! Interesting was the increasing amount of Honeycomb vase prints. For honour of this we made from it short video (down below).

Big thumb up goes this week to Tom Jackson. He is an artist, not a printer. Keep up the good work!

Also, don't miss prints from Tom Vit and 3D Maker Noob.

The best selling material of week is as usual PLA Extrafill Vertigo Grey.

 

Enjoy and have a nice printing day!

Three years of green energy in Fillamentum! August 09 2017

Every day many posts, blogs, articles and studies about getting green appear on the internet and social media. It’s really important not just for us, but for the whole planet to care about this wonderful place we live. Global pollution of air, water, and soil is a real struggle. 

We are happy that so many companies join in their part to change something. Separating waste is just the beginning. Here in the Czech Republic, the beautiful country in the heart of Europe, it is pretty common to do that since nursery. It is the minimum what we can do. But of course, separating and recycling are just a start. 

When we moved into our present place in Hulin, a small village near the modern student city Zlin, we were thinking a lot about what we could do better. We were thinking not only how effectively lay out our office, warehouse, and manufacture, but also how we could get greener. 

In Europe, it’s a common knowledge that you can install solar panels on your house by yourself. You can get your own green energy from almost every building. 

We decided to install solar panels in our area three years ago and it was a great decision! We build in 317 panels on our roofs. We and our mother company have been producing our own electricity already for three years!

Since the beginning of this year, only our area in Hulin, have produced 43 839 kWh from solar panels. As a result, we saved 152,06 t of CO2 which otherwise would be burned by normal electricity making, what was equal to almost 3 wagons of coal (1 wagon brings 52 tons of coal). 

And this is not the end, but only the beginning. We support and are grateful to all companies which are getting greener with us!

Together we can make more!

 

Think today about your future and make this planet a better and cleaner place to live in.

Arturo Anoni 3D printed his own glasses July 26 2017

It’s really nice to print all those characters and toys, but we appreciate when 3D printing helps in a real struggle too. For instance, when you break a part of your electronics and you want to make your own gadgets or you need a holder for something that you can’t buy online. 3D printing is here to create all real necessities and we love it!  That’s the story behind this interview about new spectacle frames.



Hello, Arturo. How do you greet in Mexico?
Hola!

You printed your own eyeglasses frames. How did you come up with this idea?
It is incredible to be able to change frames and color whenever you want.

Are you planning to make more of them? Maybe something more extravagant?
I would love to do more and better ones. Of course, it would be great to do more extravagant shapes too. <3.

Which software do you use for modeling?
I use Fusion 360. You must measure the width and height of the lenses, then you cover it with blue tape and take photos. Finally, the photo is vectored in Illustrator or Fusion 360. The most important thing is that people can have access to a low-cost frame for their lenses or in case of an accident. 

By taking a photo, you mean from a front, side and top view?
Just from the front and that’s it.

How did you print it?
I did it on Original Prusa i3 mk2. Parameters are for PLA Vertigo Grey of Fillamentum. I use Simplify 3D 100% infill 215 degrees and 60 in bed. No more support needed. Folding the lenses with a hot air gun is enough if it is required :).

Did you use something special for finishing?
It does not need any finishing since the filament is beautiful. The pieces are assembled and they do not require any screws.

Are you really wearing it?: )
I have them right now.
