how I feel when I make Fusion 360 push through its bullshit #3DPrinting
I designed something for my friends. #3DPrinting
IT'S CALLED FASHION, LOOK IT UP
I wanted to create a unique ring that had an organic feel to it, and I think I succeeded. Had to learn more about Fusion 360 to do it; learning more is rarely a bad thing. 👍🏼 #3dprinting
Well, holy shit. I think I made the thing I want to make.
Time to slice it and see how it turns out. #3dprinting
DANG. The pilot print came out well, and the distances were all a little too small.
Second time's the charm? That's the phrase, right? #3dprinting
Yay! They're coming out well so far. The real test will be when the legs begin curving. I'm going without supports; we'll see how they come out. #3dprinting
I designed and am now printing some glasses for a Furby. #3dprinting
Not a perfect #3dprinting, but pretty good.
V likes the little holders I made for her hydroponic cups.
I had to convince Cura that YES, two of them could fit on the same build plate. I'm printing a pair now. #3dprinting
I must be at least passing fair at designing objects for #3dprinting; this latest effort took 15 minutes from telling V that I was about to start to firing up my printer with the sliced design.
OK! Designed those coins and sent my friend the STL files. Designed a new box, sliced it, and sent it to print. First layer looks good so far. #3dprinting
Also got my pillows & case out of the washer, into the dryer! I'm doing well.
I designed and printed a box! Notes:
* At 100mm x 100mm, this likely took up more of the print bed than anything I printed before.
* It was also my longest print time to date at six hours, seven minutes.
* The part of the design process that took the longest was waiting for Fusion 360 to load.
OctoPrint is still pretty cool. It has its quirks, but I both started and then checked in on a print I'm running downstairs from my bedroom. Worth the eccentricities. #3dprinting
I cleaned and lubricated some parts of my 3d printer. Hoping to get a nice dice tower out of the thing. #3dprinting
Had a dream about using the digital calipers I'm getting for my birthday to help me design a custom piece of jewelry.
I'm definitely going to make something like I dreamt of, but for today, I'll have to use seamstress's tape. #3dprinting
Maybe these aren't terrible. #3dprinting
Looks like I finally figured out my #3dprinting issue. We'll see if the next print goes as well; fingers crossed!
(These are little mementos I designed to give the guests at my 40th birthday party.)
