Details of a nice print


As previous shown, Gunnar Gerhardt has already made a lot of characters that slowly make it to the digital world. Here is a testprint of ‘Matchstickman’. I also printed it in white but as you may know: the natural white APS is almot photo-proof due to its translucency… so enjoy some more details in black:MSM_torso_detail01

By the way:

Layer: 0.15mm

Printing@ 10mm/s

Travel@ 200m/s

Acc@ 5000mm/s²

Temp@ 245°C

Matchstickman is around 110mm tall and comes from the 55mm original that got scanned with David-Laserscanner.


Honey, i remeshed the cube-head!



I like to remesh things in Blender using ‘Blocks’. You may recognize the original. The print above is  printed @0.2mm Layers|14mm/s. Sliced with Kisslicer, Raft enabled. The Raft was actually very easy to remove even with SchorschXYs bowdened extruder.


Bloemenwerf by Henry van de Velde printable 1:4


Recently, the guys from markepunktsechs asked me to print their models of two chairs. One is that classic Bloemenwerf by Henry van de Velde shown above. 1:10 (red) and 1:4 (white). If you search for pictures you will find some differences to the printed version. There are several reasons for that, one is ‘printability’: to get smooth silky surfaces i had to reconstruct the hole chair after a mesh i got to print. Let’s just say if you want to print something that originaly is made of several pieces, just print these pieces. It took me a week to figure out how to print this thing. After trying to print one half chair and getting wobbly warpy crap i started to print smaller parts and finally single parts like the original.

the story of Gunnar, David and Schorsch…

Kubentypen03This isn’t Gunnar but made by Gunnar. Gunnar is a friend who makes actionfigures and just made that little guy. He is made of wood and around 50mm high.

Kubentypen02This isn’t David but it’s scanned using the David-Laserscannersoftware with an Optoma PK301 and a Microsoft Lifecam-Studio. It took about 1.5hrs to get the hole figure but i think you can make it in 30min. Here he sits in Blender, From 750k faces (50MB out of David) to 10% (75k faces).

Kubentypen04This isn’t Schorsch but SchorschXY printed it.





That little guy hasn’t got a name jet, i think. How about “Lampshade”:


the last picture shows the two Prints of Lampshade a little better than the earlier one:


The white spots are where the support stucked on the model, you can easy get rid of that using acetone and your finger… A few missing perimeters are caused by low-quality-ABS (waterbubbles) and single-walled-perimeter (left one) The right one is a reduced one with only ~7500 triangles.
