Cool things I've made lately while learning blender.


Recommended Posts

Although I like my original design better, I went with a similar design I saw on turbosquid. It has more straight lines and so easier to cut into. I also made the roller bearing for it. I'm now done with pistons, I think I'd like to make a skull next. I've read it is very hard though....

... at the risk of being hit on the head with it ... a set of needle bearings would look great in there 🙃

 

Thanks for the roller bearing idea. It was actually one of the easier parts to make. The wrist-pin and rod were easier, but the piston was a challenge. Mostly because I had to cut holes into it.

Actually, once you figured out how to use a 3D program, most of the time it's just a matter of time until you get it done.

 

Have you used Blender? From the videos I've seen, it looks like they mostly sculptured the skull. I have little to no experiencing with the sculpture layout. I guess I'll have to figure it out.

I do have a long history with 3d software. For me, it always end up being time-related rather than anything to do with how to make it.

Well sculpting that skull is a very slow process, but I'm going to try anyway. In the meantime, I downloaded a skull blend file under the Creative Commons licence to play around with and see how it's put together. I only changed the texture and animated the jaw to make it laugh.

I have the Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite X5 with its Deep Exploration 6 CAD program by Right Hemisphere. It allows me to create 3D models and can save/export to files that can be rendered in Blender. I created dozens of 3D files in a software from Micrografx called Simply 3D. Micrografx was bought by igrafx, that became Right Hemisphere. I have not found a rendering app that can open Simply 3D's .sd3 file format. I can run Simply 3D on a Windows 7 or older computer , but I cannot export the file into another 3D format.

This video was rendered in Micrograx Simple 3D:

See if it will export to .stl format. Blender can import .stl as an object. You'll still need to make the shading and animation in blender itself.

Nice work. I don't have a 3-D printer, how much did that cost you?

Landed it for less then $400NZ. Its an Ender 3 Pro by Creality. Sourced it from Aliexpress.

I did a lot of research before getting it. This model is regarded as the top of the hobby line. I'm thrilled with it and highly recommend one, especially if it is your first printer.

The whole printer is less than 50cm high. The black bed the deer above is standing on is your print volume. Its 220mm x 200mm square with a maximum print height of 250mm. 

 

The print quality, density and added supports all affect the print time by a large factor. My "Dead Dog" sits on a base approx 25mm across and are 32mm long. They take about 30 mins to print in medium quality. At very high quality you could double that print-time.

Wow @dipstick that's amazing.  I am feeling, ever so slightly, the urge to give this Blender thing a try - but it looks complicated 🙀
