3DPrinting: Space Ork

Having spent several years with my Makerbot replicator 2 3Dprinter I decided to look into technologies with higher print resolution and after nearly going for a B9 creator (projector based 3Dprinting) I settled on the new Form 2 from Form Labs.

Pumpkinstein: 3DPrint Halloween project

SO Halloween is fast approaching and this year I wanted to make something special. I decided to create a Frankensteinesque character with Pumpkin related issues. If Dr. Frankenstein had run out of body parts and had to use Pumpkins for parts of the head this  would be the result.       This is a comparison of the final 3DPrint output and one of the early...

A mid October 3DPrinting project. I’m finally getting some good results from the Makerbot Replicator 2.
