Running Resin 3D Printing Calibration Tests in NanoDLP

One of the really cool features in NanoDLP which is sometimes overlooked is its ability to generate a calibration test plate which can help you zero in on your resin and 3d printer’s optimal cure times. This is important as having too short cure times will not allow your resin …

Singapore 3D Meetup XVI + Fusion 360 Meetup (3 Feb 2018)

Come join us for the 16th run of the Singapore 3D Printing Meetup, held in conjunction with the Singapore Autodesk Fusion360 Meetup. For this first meetup of 2018, we feature prolific 3d modeller and designer Jason Loo. Hear him share his experiences using Fusion360 for the 3d modelling of his …

Testing Tolerances for 3D Printing

  When working on more advanced 3d design for printing, it is likely one will end up creating assemblies of parts. For such projects, it’s advantageous to do a small tolerance test to determine the offset required to give the right tolerance/tightness for the project parts which are meant to …

Getting STL File Preview in Window Explorer

Finding the right STL file in a directory chock-full of them is a common bugbear for most of us dealing with 3d modelling and 3d printing. Luckily, it seems like there are enough of us annoyed by that that some good folks over at the Robo3D Forums had found a …

Setting Gcode Print Pauses for Filament Changes in Simplify3D

Sometimes to add a little jazz to your 3d prints, you may want to change filaments halfway through. Sometimes it is possible to watch your 3d printer manually to do a pause and replace. However, if you are running a lot of similar pieces which require consistency in swapping filaments …

3D Printing Timelapse of a Woochie on ATOM 3D Printer

  A 3d printing timelapse showing how the Woochie designer toy by Trivialities is materialized. This 3D printed model was then worked upon with clay to create the final master object for resin casting more copies. Actual print time was around 2 hours 40 minutes, and the 3D printer used …
