Modelling and 3D Printing Torbjorn’s Turret (Part 2)

torbjorn14

Continuing from where we left off from Part 1, here’s second post to showcase our process through getting Overwatch’s Torbjorn’s turret from a 3d model to a final printed and finished piece. Along the way, a lot of test fitting and imagining how the final piece will look like. Print time wise, most pieces ran from around 2-4 hours up …

Modelling and 3D Printing Torbjorn’s Turret (Part 1)

torbjornturret2

We’ve been great fans of the amazing Overwatch game from Blizzard and even have been at the launch event in Singapore and gotten a Reaper’s Mask printed and autographed (but that’s another story). Thinking larger, we decided to do another iconic and some what polarizing piece from the game – Torbjorn’s Turret. This will be a quick recap of our …

tip08

Getting your 3d model which you have painstakingly designed out into the physical world by 3d printing is always exciting. Finally gonna get to see the futuristic cool design come into life! But sometimes, things may take a much longer path than expected due to hiccups in translating a 3d model into a 3d printed piece! Things tend to crop …

3D Printing a Replacement LED Light Clip

3D Modelling and Printing a Replacement LED Clip

One of the recent requests we got came in from someone who needed a replacement LED light clip done up as one of the old clips had broke. It was a rather small and delicate piece. So it seemed like a nice challenge to put some quick 3d modelling towards to get a usable 3d printed replacement for it. It’s …

Assembling the ATOM 3D Printer Heated Bed (Part 2)

ATOMHeatedBedBuild-21

This is a continuation of the coverage of our journey in assembling the ATOM 3D Printer Heated Bed (part one can be found here). With the removal of the power brick, the power cable connects directly to the PSU now and hence there is a new faceplate for all the power cable, the USB port and a new power switch. …

Assembling the ATOM 3D Printer Heated Bed (Part 1)

ATOM Heated Bed Assembly

And so, here’s the log of our exploits in assembling and getting the ATOM 3D Printer Heated Bed going! Took around a day front to back to put things together (thought not all in one shot). Similar to the fixing up of the ATOM 3D Printer itself, it is worthwhile to take the heated bed assembly slower and leisurely, spending …

Working on 3d Printing Projects and Collaborations

3 Stages of 3D Printing

We often get asked about our process and approach in taking on various 3d printing projects and collaborations. As a start, here’s a sampling of the various projects we have worked on before – http://funbiestudios.com/projects/ Basically, there are 3 stages which a project can undertake – 3D Modelling, 3D Printing and Post Processing. 3 Stages of Getting Your 3D Projects …
