3D Print | My Shapeways Shop: Bowl in Porcelain

 

Finally it is here, my long awaited package !!!!!!!!!!! I had my first 4 designs

from my Shapeways shop printed and sent to me for the first time. Here you

see a small bowl in low-poly design. It was printed in foodsafe, oven and

dishwasher safe porcelain and glazed in Gloss Celadon Green.

 

I had to redesign the bowl several times to make it printable with the

technique. It has a nice heavy and robust weight so it won't fall over.

 

Shapeways You can order the bowl at my Shapeways Shop.

 

 

Cheers, RobotMama.

3D Print | My Shapeways Shop: Vase in Porcelain

 

Finally it is here, my long awaited package !!!!!!!!!!! I had my first 4 designs

from my Shapeways shop printed and sent to me for the first time. Here you

see a small vase that I designed with a turned and transformed gear form. It

was printed in foodsafe, oven and dishwasher safe porcelain and glazed in

Gloss Celadon Green.

 

I had to redesign the vase several times to make it printable with the

technique. It has a nice heavy and robust weight so it won't fall over.

 

Shapeways You can order the vase at my Shapeways Shop.

3D Print |  IKEA Hack: Lamp Shade for Ranarp & Varv Lamps

 

This lid is a diffuser for my IKEA lamps Ranarp & Varv. This way their light is soft and I do not

look directly into the light bulb.

 

The cover perfectly fits the office lamp Ranarp and clicks into place. For the desk lamp Varv

you simply lay the cover loosly onto the lamp shade.

 

Thingiverse

 Download the design at Thingiverse and show me your printed lamp cover.

 What materials did you use?

3D Print | Toilet Paper Holder Version 2

 

This is the improvements of the new toilet paper holder:
-easy change of toilet paper
-easy printing in halfs (no supports needed)
-the end caps are customizable (flat base is included)

 

If you want to design your own end caps, use the "Cap Design.stl" as base.

How I designed it

I have used Cinema 4D again, simple objects like tubes. Tools I have used: Boolean Operation, Extrusion, Polygon Tools, Displacer plus Nasa Image of the earth and the Gear Spline Tool.

Here is the Link to the Image.

3D Print | Toothbrush Holder for Braun electric Toothbrush

 

As my electric toothbrushes just kept dropping to the floor and would take up a lot of

space on my shelf, I decided to build this design. After a prototype and adjustments for

faster and less material consuming prints the little smiley was born. Again I used

Cinema4D.

 

Thingiverse

 Download the design at Thingiverse.

 

 

The download gives you 3 different items, the holder for the toothbrush in its charging

station (i.e. with a slid for the cable), the holder for only the toothbrush (i.e. with a shaft

to hold the brush in place) and a copy of the charging station (if you want to fix your

brush to the wall without the smiley).

3D Print | LED Night Light: Cupcake Decor

 

This is another decor in form of a cupcake, this time its for an underwater LED I ordered

at Amazon. I use it for relaxation and night light (as it comes with a remote), but it could

also be used in a kids room.

 

Thingiverse

 Download the design at Thingiverse.

3D Printer: Ultimaker2+

Notes

Print without Bottom, but leave Top on. I used the standard settings in Cura for a 0.4mm nozzle and normal quality and only changed infill and removed the bottom. Make sure that you reduce the speed when the tip of the cupcake is printed so it has enough time to cool down and lay out the small circles slowly enough.

 

Post-Printing

I printed the cupcake with translucent PLA and then spray painted it with rose color and white for the tip, only slightly so the light could still shine through.

 

 

How I Designed This

I used Cinema4D to model this, see the image for the setup:

The bottom part is a Loft Nurbs with two different sized star splines, with the upper end cap set as a fillet cap. In the end cap settings activate "Create single object".

The top part (Icing) is the same star spline and a helix spline added to a sweep object. Make sure that the star is the first object under the sweep and adjust the helix as you like. Again make sure to activate "Create single object".

Now put bottom and top part into a bool object, which is set to type "A union B", activate "High Quality" and again "Create single object".

Now for the last step, activating "Create Single Object" for all the items is needed to get one single polygon object when you click "Current State to Object".

"Current State to Object" will now create a poly object you can then export to stl without destroying the original setup, so you can tweak it later to change the design.

 

Cheers, RobotMama.
