Egyptian Pyramid with LED 3D Printed

Egyptian Pyramid with LED 3D Printed

Today we will 3D print this Egypt Pyramid and see how it will work. This Pyramid is based on Egypt and has a small part on top that is open to attach a small LED and let the light out. This print took approximately 9 hours to complete and on top a blue LED was attached and programmed with Arduino to flash every 100 milliseconds. Making Process   Technical Details Print time: Approximately 9 hours Resolution: 1.5 Material: RED PLA Temperature: 205 - 200 (Started with 200c then raised to 205c during print) Bed Temperature: 70c Source: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1419212 Overview   The details on this pyramid were quite impressive at just 0.15 resolution, the bricks on the side looks very sharp and the edge is also very sharp if it was printed on 0.10 resolution it would probably look so sharp and clean that some people would mistaken for injection molding. The only thing that went wrong with this print was the top...

Samurai Themed Pen Holder 3D Printed

Samurai Themed Pen Holder 3D Printed

Today we will 3D print this Pen Holder and see how it will work. This Pen Holder is themed on a Samurai sword stand that is used to place the sword in a way for display or decoration. This print took approximately 3 hours to complete. Making Process As you can see there some strings on the sides due to poor cooling during print. It will be improved on next prints. But after all it works as intended! It holds the pen perfectly and doesn't fall or lose balance when putting or taking pens off. It feels very solid and durable! Technical Details Print time: Approximately 3 hours Resolution: 1.5 Material: RED PLA Temperature: 210 - 200 (Started with 210c then lowered to 200c during print) Bed Temperature: 70c Source: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:602400 Overview I think it came out good enough after all, it had some strings as you could see from the pictures above but it can be improved if I had a better cooling during print,...
