3D Printing capable!

My 3D printer has officially arrived, and that means that I can officially print out whatever 3D item you want!

If you are interested, feel free to leave a shout here, or PM me.

Before I begin with details, there is something important you MUSt know:
A 3D MESH/MODEL IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TO WORK!!!
Also, I CANNOT print this stuff out in color. This is molten plastic, not ink. If you want it painted, specify in your order!

Details are as follows:

->Models will be priced at $3 per cubic inch (as measured by the printing software).

->Provide a 3D model or mesh for what you want printed. If you do not have one, I can make one for you.

->Orders asking to be painted will be charged an additional $5 to cover supply costs

->All orders come with either a platform (a base to stand on) and/or a stand (to hold it or mount it).

->Items larger than 8"x8"x8" WILL be split into separate parts, due to printing bed size constraints.

->I will PM you when I begin printing your order, and I will provide a link to the stream feed (if you would like one), so you can watch your order be printed. ^_^

->All orders will be shipped out through USPS via priority flat rate, and will have a tracking number for your convenience. Each order will be shipped in a box, and will be padded for protection.

SHIPPING PRICES
->Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box, priced at $16.85 ($14.85 to APO/FPO/DPO)
Box sizes are 23-11/16" x 11-3/4" x 3" or 12" x 12" x 5-1/2"

->Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box , priced at $12.35
Box sizes are 13-5/8" x 11-7/8" x 3-3/8" or 11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2"

->Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box, priced at $5.80
Box size is 8-5/8" x 5-3/8" x 1-5/8"

->Packages will be delivered 2-3 days after I ship them, in most cases.

That said, I hope you all have a great day, and I look forward to seeing your orders!

Cool.How does it work?Is it pretty detailed to the 3d model?

Aside from the scale of the model, it's about 90-95% of the model's detail. The larger the scale, the better the detail can be!

maximum resolution is .1mm thickness per layer. It takes three times as long to print, but the model is pretty smooth, and can achieve beautiful detail. Maximum thickness is .3mm, and still makes a very well-detailed model with a surface that isnt much different from the .1mm setting.

I would advise that if you have something very thin in diameter (6mm or less), you either scale it up, or note me that your print has very small objects so that I can provide a stability support. Other than that, though, there isn't anything to worry over.

If you are asking how the printing works, it's basically a thermal plastic extrusion process. Simply put, print an outline in a regular printer, then print it on that same page, same side, same orientation, for hundreds of times. the ink stacks up, and makes a raised surface. The same thing applies here: I print out layers of whatever I am asked to, with thicknesses ranging from 1/10mm to 3/10mm, until the whole model is printed out.

If you are asking for my opinion on the printing process, I have to say that i would give it a solid 7 stars (of 10) for difficulty, because none of this comes with a manual. Even the website only has a few pages on how to print, but it doesnt give specifics, such as temperatures for your extruder, print bed temps, feed speeds, etc. Kinda cheap, if you ask me, lol. However, after finally getting the settings right, I find that this is really fun to do, and even more fun to have going while I work.

If you wish to see the printing in action, I stream at http://www.livestream.com/thebirthofart
the current model I am printing is this one, minus the clothing. For some reason, the clothes keep getting cut off/causing issues with the model, so (with consent from Shippo) they have been discarded.

What happens if you print something you don't like,can you re-melt it and use the plastic again?

yes, I can do that once i make a recycling extruder. I've got, like, 6 feet of filament in print scrap at the moment, all of it from setup, failed printing (due to bad setup) and nozzle cleaning, and I WILL be using it again, lol. Besides, it cuts down on material costs, and creates far less waste.

interesting... my roomie has one, but he prints in color.. since well plastic can come in colors >_> ive yet to see him finish creating anything cause he just keeps tweaking the dang thing. Im guessing you use white plastic though, for easy painting

Yep. Thay, and colored plastics are 41.95, versus the 24.95 i pay for black/white. You can also get neon and glow in the dark coolors, but they are the same price as colored plastics. However, if someone wants a specific color, i can always order that color for an added 3 dollars. ^_^

*falls over* thats outrageous for colored x.x

I know, right? But, colored comes from octave, and mine comes from 3DD, which only offers black and white. BUT, i do offer to paint them with an airbrush, so it all pans out. ^_^

Side note: i already did all of my tweaking, lol, but it depends on the tyoe of printer he/she has.
