Want something 3d printed?

Just putting this out there, I have a couple of 3d printers currently sitting idle, if you want anything 3d printed drop me a PM, examples of work in my signature.

ever wanted a life sized R2? or wearable Halo armour? or how about an Iron Man outfit? Or even a Robocop?

I'm taking commissions now!

if you can find a file for it worth noting 3d printing isn't cheap, or quick

Just out of interest, purely for the sake of argument, with no obligation, how much for a full-size Stormtrooper outfit?

very roughly, just printed, so you'd need to sand and paint, printed at 100% - so not scaled to your body, around 600chf.

Re: Want something 3d printed?

You inspired me.

How to make the design files suitable for printing? Also, how strong is the material? Is it possible to make an arm holding ~2kg?

Re: Want something 3d printed?

depends what file format your designs are in win10 has 3d builder for free which is pretty good at simple designs / converting and there are plenty of other free programs out there.

Strength wise - sure, you can print an arm that will take 2kg easy enough, with 3d printing its all down to the settings you use, nice thick walls with plenty of shells and decent infill will be strong, but it will also take a long time to print and take a lot of filament, and of course be heavy. You can also reinforce prints with resin or fiberglass

Re: Want something 3d printed?

Which machines do you use?

Anything to recommend to a hobbyist, wanting to explore a bit before throwing thousands into the "business"?`

Re: Want something 3d printed?

creality cr10's, but unless you know what you're doing, or know someone who does, and your also quite technically / mechanically minded then they probably aren't for you.

They do an beginners printer

which is small but also cheap
