New Toy

Postby Buckhorn » Tue Mar 21, 2017 10:13 pm

The end of last week I received my new 3D printer. I've printed a few items from models I downloaded, and some that I modeled. I need to practice with the modeling program, so that I can make things that are useful to me.
I'm going to try to post a picture of and item I made from a downloaded model.

I think your first project should be a Ural crankshaft.

You'll not be able to make them fast enough. :boogie:

... and the strength of material will be vastly improved!

edit - what software are you modeling with? IIMA.

The only modeling program I have used so far is Tinkercad, which is an online program that uses your browser. I just downloaded 123dapp from Autodesk, but haven't used it yet. It is going to be unavailable for download sometime in April.
Most of the things I have printed, I downloaded the models from Thingiverse.
I am amazed at some of the things that you can print, that have joints that move, and are printed in one piece.

I'm new to this, and I'm not really sure about printing metal parts, but I guess it can be done. There is filament that is infused with metal, but I don't know how strong a part can be. There are a lot of different filaments, including ones with wood, and carbon fiber.
It's not a fast process that's for sure.

Chinese are 3D printing titanium fighter jet parts. Allegedly stronger than those produced by conventional processes.

"The team used its new technology to 3D print TC4 titanium alloy parts for stealth jets whose tensile strength, yield strength, ductility and toughness are superior to traditional forging parts."

Just ordered a new ROBO 3D R1 Printer two weeks ago!
In comparison with other models, this one totally worth every penny.

Actually I have ordered other 3D Printers in the past, but every single time they were Dead On Arrival. THIS is the first one to have shown up and basically be working right out of the box. I love this machine. I've already printed a few things and I'm on a 11 hour print right now. Can't wait to get to work on the next one after that.

Tomcatfixer can confirm or correct me, but I believe we are producing parts on our military jets that are 3D printed

Checkout GE's website for some info on ultra serious 3D printing. Amazing!

Hey, I just open the box and bolt the part on the jet. :lol:
Seriously, though, some of the modern aeronautical components have such a complex shape to take advantage of every little bit of space available inside the airframe that they MUST be printed.

I know that NASA sent one up the the ISS as it's faster and cheaper to print needed parts there than boost them up. It will print metal parts, I think they are using a laser to melt the metal powder. Shades of Star Trek and the replicator. Tea, Earl Gray, Hot.


I think it's Space X that is printing the booster engines.

The was a SiFi book I read years ago and in one chapter the hero was getting some ammo for his gun and it was being "Spraypainted" by the fabber. Sounds like a 3D printer to me
