Mechdonalds Printed by Grafit February 27 2019

He is from Hungary and we met on Twitter while he was using our materials for really nice and clean printing. “I am already helping Fernando with his top secret project, beta testing at 40% size”. We knew we are on the same page to make some good collaboration!

*Fernando Jerez is our long-time friend, he’s talented designer who started the wavey madness with his generative design.

Hello Grafit,
When I was asking you about some ideas for a new bigger project, you wanted to print exactly this amazing design by Juri Pranjic. How did you find the model?
I have seen this earlier on Twitter when Juri designed it and started printing his own. I became a follower of @3dworkbench instantly.

Two materials in seven different colours, tell us more about the printing process ... Which printer you used, how long did it take to print? Did you use any tricks or special set up for printing?
Well, the CPE Red Hood filament was a completely new material for me. And because it needed high temperature, I used my Prusa i3 MK3 for that job. No failures there. It came out nicely in the first round. On the pictures you can see, it is the tomato slice.
Since I scaled up this awesome model to 140% I had to use some tricks. For example, on the original model, every part of the burger is solid. However in a perfect world, you will never see the inside of the tomato slice, and the meat etc. so I decided to cut out most parts. The tomato slice is a ring eventually. I will post some making-of photos on my twitter later.
Ender 3 printed the burger buns (Light Ivory PLA), and the limbs (Vertigo Grey PLA). Everything else was printed on the Prusa i3 MK3.
Fries & Cheese (Melon Yellow PLA), Lettuce (Grass Green PLA), Meat (Purple Red PLA), Shields (Traffic White PLA)

Did you have any issues with stringing on CPE? Because when it’s moist, it can be  hairy printing.
Moisture did not get any chance since that was a perfectly packaged brand new spool; and after printing, I put it right back to the reusable ziplock bag. :)

It’s not an easy design but definitely worth it. What did you need for assembling it?
For the burger, I have used hot glue gun. And I designed and printed a custom fitting ring for some of the parts. The legs and arms are just slide in. For the thrusters, I used a small strip of kapton tape to make some friction so they would not fall out.

With upscaling to this giant size there can be an issue with stability which isn’t there in the original size. We almost didn’t manage to make it stand. Do you think it’s something what can decrease the head part weight to reduce the pressure on the legs? Of course he is super-awesome while sitting too, but.. : )
Yeah, the upscaling generated some issues with the tolerances. His joints became a lil’ loose. I think the main issue are the knees. I would glue them to a fix position, or drill and use a screw and a nut through the knee joint. I was able to get him standing with fries box on his back. :) I have a proof.

What are your feelings from Fillamentum materials?
I really love just everything about Fillamentum. The box, reusable ziplock packaging for moisture defense, beautiful glass clear spool, and of course, filament itself. It comes in beautiful vivid colours and quality material. I’ve never had any problems related to the material. Oh, and the surprise stickers! :)
Thank you 💛

The world is divided into two parts…. Ketchup or mayo to your french fries?: )
Lol! Ketchup.

Any ambitions for next projects?
I really like multipart models where you can combine a lot of filaments together.
That is where nice colours and glittery materials can show their beauty and form awesome combinations together. So definitely I would print something big, multipart thing with perfect material combinations.
I recently started to paint some models but then you can just use any filament. :)

The Submarine Door Box by Odrivous February 15 2019

A young father, skilled designer, and what's more, even an experienced printer – that's our ex-employee who now works at Prusa Research as the Head of Testing – Jindrich Benes aka Odrivous. Let’s read about one of his newest projects which he made in his free time – The Submarine Door Box.

Hello : )
When I've seen the first photos of this project, they amazed me. I know you're highly skilled at modelling, I'd already seen that form your ongoing project of the modelling and printing of characters from Terry Pratchett's Discworld. Now, this is a thing! How did you get to this idea?
Hello.
It all started last January when I knew what I would like to give to my father and brother for Christmas. I made for myself a 3D-printed metal belt buckle and decided to make matching belts for them as well. Now, since we have the technology, why not make a fancy box for the gift?
They are guys and into mechanics, so let's make it technical – that's what I was thinking. And lo, the idea of a box with gears, bars, transmissions, and rivets came to be.

Now that’s a unique “wrapping paper”! How did your father and brother react?
They didn't expect anything like it at all. At first, they both thought it must be an intricate puzzle but then found out the opening of the box is rather straightforward. But that gave me some new ideas ...
Oh, and they did like the belt as well.

You've made something that looks fantastic, what comes first for you, a form or function?
Mostly, a form is the reason I create (while keeping the technical side of things – printability – in mind). Here, I sort of made an exception, I knew I wanted a working mechanism as intricate as I can create while referencing the submarine door aesthetics.
So you could say the form and form of motion were the leading aspects here as well.

This is not a simple model at all. When I was asking you about this interview, you immediately answered saying you don’t have all those prototypes anymore. How many of them did you have?
This project took about 10 months from the first prototype to the final product. 
There were about 6 major prototype versions of which the first three were just experiments with gear kinematics. I am no engineer, so the whole mechanism is a result of trial and error. This gave me some idea of how the gears actually work and provided a base for the mechanism's final composition. Lastly came the fine-tuning of the prototypes in the components' dimensions and tolerances.  

What modelling software did you use and what was the biggest challenge you needed to solve?
I used Autodesk Fusion 360 – great software for home use with 3D printing – to design the whole model.
I would consider myself a fluent user of Fusion 360, so the design process was quite smooth. The time-consuming part, though, was the kinematics of the mechanism itself. Luckily, with 3D-printing, I can make some design changes in that one hour I have for modelling in the evening and check the results in the morning.

For printing, you used the Prusa printer, of course. Did you use some special settings to get such great results?
If you want to rivet a door using no glue, you might want to experiment with rivet sizes and increase or decrease them a little. Each printer might need a specific size multiplier to make it fit just right. Alternatively, you can just glue in the outer rivets.
The Slicer PE which I mostly use does have this handy “elephant foot compensation” setting – it battles a sharp squeeze to bed on objects by offsetting the first layer inside. I used it with great success on the gears and thus ensured they move smoothly.
Some of the parts require supports; namely: wheel, rivets, hinges, and single-piece version of the main box. The rivets can benefit from larger “XY separation” in the Slicer PE support settings – say 80%.

Material: PLA Extrafill "Gold Happens", "Vertigo Grey", "Rapunzel Silver" & "Pearl Ruby Red"

Can you share some post-processing and assembling tips with makers? Where did you get the plexiglass on the top from?
The hinges are connected with a piece of 1.75 filament which should go in with a small resistance under slight force.
Correct bars are indicated by a corresponding number of notches on both bars and the base plate.
The plexiglass cover on the door is optional. There is a .DXF amongst the print files which you can use to cut the lid from plexiglass at your local maker-space or provider of laser-cutting. In my case, I used the Prusa Lab – an open maker-space at Prusa Research HQ.
But since the box is intended primarily for the FDM 3D-printing, the main version of the cover is printable with holes to reveal the cogs.

Is there anything you want to say to the makers reading this? : )
Thank you for reading this interview.
Enjoy the free time you have when you have it.

3D printed love from leftovers February 11 2019

We all know this. Last 5m filament on the spool. The material is so awesome, so it will be a waist to just throw it away. But what to do with so little???

Let's print some love and spread it all around!

Design: Laila (Blender)

Stl adjusted for 1, 2, 5 and 10m leftovers by A. Nosek in Prusa Slic3r for settings 0.4 mm nozzle, 0.1 layer height and 2 perimeters (walls). Of course you can scale it how you need in your slicing software.
