3D printed Old Style Camera theater prop

Being involved in a theater play that takes place in 1920, we needed an old style camera.
After searching a real one without success, I decided to make our own by combining 3D printing, woodworking and painting.

Here is the result....

Stan Lee 3D print + post-processing

Many people think that FDM 3D printing is not well adapted at producing nice and detailed 3D sculptures because of the visible layers.

Let me show you here that with some post-processing (sanding and painting) you can achieve very fine detailed sculptures.

Weedo Tina2 Anti Z Wobbling mod

I noticed that the Weedo Tina2 3D printer has a tendency for slight Z wobbling.

So I designed a part that completely removes it which leads to much better prints.

Weedo Tina2 filament runout detection

Having now a complete Marlin firmware opens a lot of new features.
Among them there is a filament runout detection section which I think is a feature every 3D printer should have.

So it's time to add one to my beloved Weedo Tina2.

How accurate is your Tina2 ?

Like any other 3D printers, it's important to spend some time at calibrating your Tina2 if you want to be sure to print accurate dimensional parts.
In this tutorial I'm gonna show you how to do this. Of course this calibrating procedure can also be used for any other 3D printer... and not just our beloved Tina2!

So if your printer doesn't give you accurate dimensional prints, go ahead and read further.

Let there be light !

In my previous post I introduced you to the Weedo Tina2 3D printer on which I allready performed a few improvements.
Among them I told you that I will probably add some light inside it. Because I'd like to be able to better see my models being printed in dark situations or at night time.

So let me show you how this can be done in this very easy to follow tutorial...

Rocket3F : The Missing Tutorials

Rocket3F is a great subdivision modeling software but it lacks tutorials.
I went thru all the R3F and Nvil tutorials and found out that several functionalities are hardly covered... when they are.
So I decided to write a few tutorials that I call "The Missing Tutorials".
They will be useful for me as a reminder (as I had hard time to figure out how some of these tools are working), but should also be useful to others including Nvil users.

3Dbuilder Pros & Cons

I love SketchUp and use it for most of my 3D projects.
But there are tasks that I prefer to do in some other softwares.
Microsoft's 3Dbuilder is one that I use very often.

Screaming Hand 3D sculpture V2

Almost 7 years ago I published my first version of the "Sceaming hand" Santa Cruz's emblematic design.
And honestly when I look back at it I think it doesn't deserve the more than 250 likes I received on Thingiverse (at the time of writing).
It's now time to make a better one...

Printing "Christ Unlimited" (makkink of)

This is another post about printing something BIG.
By "BIG" here I mean a long print time and how it can drastically be reduced by having a good print strategy.
Or how a 12h print can be reduced down to 7h without any compromise on print quality.
