Despite the warping, I think it still looks amazing!  Great to see the details on the side are kept so well..

It seems like it's worth it to print it shelled instead of solid, saving a lot of filament.

Awesome project, Raxx! :)

It's up to you how far you would like to take it with patching and painting ;) It'll be awesome either way!

Oh really nice Raxx! I like how the detail turned out on that front part! I'm glad it's working properly and that your work has paid off so far..

I hope the front wheel attachment will be rigid enough to carry the weight? I guess the load is not that heavy..

Really awesome looking so far + I can't wait to see what's next!

Nice work Raxx! Seems like you are having a lot of fun with it :) Im glad you can use the model!
It's amazing how many layers it prints. It must go through a lot of material! I'm sorry to hear that there are so many hiccups in the system though. I guess that's part of the 'fun' of building your own printer I guess ;)

I'm curious to see how the front wheel will be attached to the chassis..
(the webcam links are not really working - maybe I am looking at the wrong times.

Raxx, hm.. I was under the impression that a model like the car would not be printable at all? because of the angles and the fact that its not manifold..
I made the other model too quickly I'll admit and you won't have to print that.. I just don't have time at the moment to make something good.
If you want to mess around with the car model to see how it would print I can send it to you if you want!

Unfortunately I did not have too much time to make something too detailed. Fortunately it only has to be a model not fully textured etcetera.. so I made this piece. I hope it meets the specifications for printing?

Thanks again Raxx for the amazing offer ! :) And I hope you will have the printer up and running again soon!

Hey Raxx, sorry to hear about the broken piece!
Not so sorry too because now we have some more time ;)

You said you reduced the poly amount before printing for the dog, is a high poly count a problem? What would you say is about an acceptable limit for the models to be printed?
I think the dog came out pretty cool!

Hey Raxx, congrats on finishing your printer! That's quite the achievement! Would you mind sharing some photo's / video's of the completed printer (in action)? I admire your DIY skills a lot - it sounds like it was a very fun project to make, especially satisfying when the end result is a real working 3d printer! The idea that you won't have to stop with just a virtual representation of your 3d model, but that you can make everything from concept to 3d to real object in your own house is awesome!

If you don't mind I would like to subscribe to one of the prints. It seems like it will require a specialized model though so I think I would like to make something from scratch rather than adjusting a previous model.
Could you elaborate a bit on the 45 degree rule? is this because of the 0.2mm resolution? + what angles in the model will have to be more than 45 degrees?

Again congratulations on finishing it! great job :)

Nice renders, dwsel!

I had thought of doing this, but then I thought of how much longer the render times would be with a lot of glossy surfaces and .. well I never gave it a good try really .

Neat trick though if you have the patience for it!

Thanks guys

mysty modeler: yep I love the designs from that time, though I'm not sure I would fill my house with it, it's awesome to look at!

dwsel: Hm the first image is more red than pink on my screen - must be a calibration issue on my part sorry, it is supposed to lean more towards red.
The sparkling material was a lot of fun to make actually. I worked on it a bit more so here is the current version+setup:

Finished Works and Works in Progress / Retro seats

Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted a personal project on here..
Every once in a while I would feel like making something small in Anim8or, so I started a series of retro seats (designs from google) mostly modeled and all rendered in Anim8or. Hope you like it!



Some minor touch-ups made in Photoshop (mostly color corrections)

Hey I really like the animation! The only thing that looks a bit out of place is that the shoulders are a bit stiff, maybe next time you will have to add a bone for the shoulder to move as well.
Great stuff though. Your animation skills are certainly improving!

Hey Ensoniq.. I like the tables a lot better now, but I have to agree that the seats do not match too well. They look a bit like they are taken from a 70's diner instead of a space station 200 years from now.
I know you're going a bit for a used- and nothing-too-fancy look, but I think you should try to incorporate some elements that are futuristic. Maybe I've watched some movies that are a bit over-futuristic, but I think the designs would be a bit more stylized and futuristic looking. (maybe a bit in the direction of http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/16600000/Moon-sam-rockwell-16677357-500-208.jpg from Moon? )
I guess what I'm trying to say is that your materials look a bit rough and heavy, whereas if it all had to be shipped billions of miles from earth, I think they would design things a bit smarter using lighter materials  instead of heavy cushioned couches, rough metals for walls, heavy oven/stoves? etc. And maybe a bit more lighter, slicker and compacter things that have been invented in the 200 years from now?

I like the addition of some personal belongings on the wall, but the pictures look a bit forced.. I'm sure you were going to change that still though.

I haven't had time to check it out completely, but this program looks very promising:

http://www.lightworksbeta.com/

It's open-source and seems to have professional grade tools and effects. Does anyone have experience with it? I'll have to check it out more thoroughly later..

Oh well maybe I didn't look long enough, I'm sorry if that is the case.. In my experience it was closer to Windows movie maker than to Adobe Premiere, but maybe that was just a first impression.

I've tried out Powerdirector, it is easy an intuitive to use, has quite some export features, but lacks a bit in the creative department. As far as I can see there is a limited amount of features to adjust the clips (no real layering+special effects), but it does have multiple tracks to put clips in.

I think it is easy to use for putting together clilps + sound and exporting it, but for green-screen or other special effects I don't thnk it's capable of handling it.
