why i print with polymer:
cheap (i cannot afford any other technique)
no dust (healthy for me)
I take care of the Environment by not spilling any material and collect the remaining parts all separately for later use and recycling (it can be baked in the stove into metal forms)
i plan to print the hand like this:
I need some support structures
i will add them now
pillar for the joint:
hope it works!
My intuition tells me this could work. But for the first print i expect a lot of failures. After that i will improve usually after 3 prints its ok.
the base support structures i will make in other software
print paths look ok
i make a test run….
no not yet the raft is to small
I guess it will take about 1 hour to print this part. The finger tips will melt down. This issue i solve later. I am most interested on how the joint works
it is materializing this step is very addictive to me as i used to create my art in virtual worlds and now i can grab it by hand what i create. I get this feeling when i print the number one they very first one it is usually buggy but i keep it in my treasure box its is a magic one 🙂
its getting to hot
i make another try and print slower
side support is not needed its stable enough
this wall i must enforce and make it more square for print
the rubber cord fits well and is stable on force no changes there
the slow print looks promising:
this side is to thin:
excellent result i will not change anymore for now:
