It is time for the March 3D print of the month. Unlike for the previous months which were focused on a single object, the March 2014 3D print of the month features two separate objects. One of them was quite challenging to print and pushed the Ultimaker pretty hard. Hope you enjoy this read and get some inspiration for your next 3D prints.
I am happy to launch the first post of what will be a monthly recurring series: the 3D print of the month. As part of my goals for 2014 I set myself the objective to do one 3D print per month where I report the complete process and results here on the blog. When I say the complete process, I mean the good, the bad and the ugly. So I will cover everything that went well and also those things that didn’t go so well.
As described in yesterday’s blog post, cookiecaster.com is a neat and free service to create your own cookie cutters within minutes. However, the creative options with Cookie Caster are a bit limited since the design are always based on extrusions of an outline. Inspired by some 3D printed cookie cutters I had seen on the internet, I wanted to design cookie cutters with reliefs.
Christmas is just around the corner and we here at 3dprintingforbeginners.com are getting into the festive mood. As this is the first Christmas where we have a 3D printer in the house, I wanted to figure out how to put it to use with the festive season in mind.
Have you ever wondered what you can use a 3D printer for? Maybe you are considering buying a 3D printer but you aren’t sure if you’ll find enough practical uses for it? If so, I highly recommend watching the below video by Peter from Sweden. Peter owns an Ultimaker printer for over a year now and he has really put it to use in 3D printing practical items around his house.
