    Default The 3D Printing Thread

    36 hours of print, as tight as I can pack them, and they've paid for themselves, IMG_20190207_112120.jpg
    If this was done and running, it's meant to handle this flow of work. It's printed on a conveyor belt and meant for speed/accuracy, without me needing to touch it...

    My cr10s and JGAurora while they handle the big jobs, not as handy for this kind of production work.

    Yeah have to think about follow-up products...

    Can I ask what these widgets are that you’re making? If they’re that cool maybe you’ll have some buyers here on Beyond!

    Wow this is so cool. Good for you (whatever it is that you're doing)!
    I second the "buy more printers and equipment" option. I'd also warn that shipping will be delayed and estimate two days longer than you think it will so you don't over promise and under deliver. Don't raise the price though. I don't think you should do that until sustained higher sales.

    More craft / bulletjournal / sewing / office focused. Mounts and peg systems are separated, so I can do the thick and thin imperial, Ikea skadis, metric then I added screw, magnetic and 3m tape mounts by request.

    These move easy, 10$ for 20 and they require force to remove them.
    IMG_20190131_182253-01.jpg
    2.5kg shipping weight on a single peg, actually stronger than some of my princess Auto ones.

    IMG_20190110_120628-01.jpg
    This is where it started really, I wanted the apprentices Nerf stuff off the floor. The mounts on thingiverse sucked hardcore. So I built some functional mounting systems.

    I actually noticed the battery dispensers you had in one of the pics on another post, I'd be interested in those. With kids in the house we have battery storage issues! I've even contemplated getting a printer. So let me know if you're willing to print a few of those dispensers, and then maybe I'll even get one of your old printers off you too!

    Doozer these ones?

    They're off the shelf thingiverse designs that get tons of attention but nobody buying. I was going to rework then into my system later - but yeah could print some, the AA version sucks just FYI (needs that elastic or batteries go flying)

    Misterman yeah great problem when the pieces start coming together, just scary when it's all at once. I ordered enough material yesterday to print all weekend, but Etsy and PayPal both haven't deposited yet (the bulk of orders) so hopes of actually shipping and buying stuff today kinda goes out the window lol.

    Yep, those are the ones. It was just a quick view but I thought it was a pretty clever idea, and I'm all about pegboard organization, I've got it all over the garage and in a few other places in the house.

    It's nice the AAA version works well. I'm planning to revise soon.

    IMG_20190208_090334.jpg

    It's become pretty common as has the frustration with the effin home depot hooks falling out every time you walk by

    That green (Tiffany blue-ish?) Pegboard is what I spent last weekend working on, people kept asking if I could supply them the pegboard in ready to hang. That one's still available if anyone wants to spend 50$ to appease a wifey

    The pink piece on top - is a printed corner, so anyone with a screwdriver could build almost the same. Trip to home Depot, get board cut by panel saw guy. Go to baseboard aisle, 4" baseboard, square profile, cut one for each side, about 1/2" less preferably, no need for straight and perfect just a bit shorter than the adjacent pegboard edge.

    Pegboard clamps down with a 3mm machine screw, MDF baseboard is screwed in, voila framed ready to hang pegboard

    Working with a MLM manager to possibly start supplying specific systems so their trade show setups are consistent and clean

    For those batteries, I think the middle vertical part that is currently empty space should be covered more. If I keep them in the shop, there is a chance they get dusty and whatnot. This will also fix the rigidity issue.

    I gave myself a goal to create a scale model of my Ruckus build. 3D modelling has a pretty steep learning curve, so I enlisted the help of my newly retired father-in-law.
    Its getting there.

    I bought one off a nait washout. I'm seriously getting 4-5x more production in a day now as a relative newcomer. Think having your non dominant hand on the model in your fingers, pull towards you - gets bigger push away smaller left & right moves it laterally on screen, lean fingers it rotates on X/Y twist for z, up and down move it up and down in relation to the screen.

    OMG it's made the navigation easy which seems to be 98% of the time the challenge

    This is my current print farm so far. 5x Prusa MK3, 1x Prusa mk2.5, and a formbot raptor. I have an ultimaker 2+ that I hate and recently bought a Railcore II 300ZL which I'm really excited about as well. Its gradually growing. (Ignore the broken printer and the half built one, this was just the test fit of the shelf in the space

    I mostly design and build stuff related to LED lights for music festivals. Most recent toy was this infinity cube below. Finished the last prototype and gonna have them for sale by end of March most likely which should be. Its been a fun adventure, I sold some led goggles to Shaquille O'Neal last month and he got spotted wearing them at a festival over new years, that was pretty funny.

    Yeah dunno smile and nod.

    So didn't have enough surface area for the ender2's... Turns out if you take off the spool mount the and move power to outside the hotzone where it belongs anyway - 4 will stack nicely in one of those Ikea shelves/glass display cabinets

    One of the enders is being a pain, so it's working on parts to make the Ikea system habitable for printers

    Test printing this today, why didn't I do it before Valentine's?

    Still hammered with work, which is kinda nice.

    Hi guys, any idea how expensive it would be to print a small mud motor or progressive cavity pump model? Something like in this video if it loads:
    https://dms.licdn.com/playback/C4E05...KERnVi2mDA6tcw
    Be nice if the rotor and stator were different colors.

    Could use that for my training courses.

    @AndyL are you able to create a better version of this from ikea peg board system? https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/50321616/

    We use these at home for holding things like parchment paper and foil and shit and I swear the amount of times per day these fucking things fall out of the peg board! I feel like the quality control at ikea is really shit, why make an accessory that doesnt fit the holes properly, ie too loose.

    Yeah I have a spool/roll storage hook system already, I added the skadis peg system to my own system a while back as it was the first request.

    Shoot me some dimensions and I'm sure I could one up it in a variety of colors
