  • Spent the last couple of days printing a piggy bank in the form of a Moai. Got to say that this is one of the best designs that I have downloaded from Thingiverse, which printed easily with fresh PLA with almost no spidering. Grab the STLs at: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3952978

    Moai Piggy Bank - Remix by Coat
    First of all: all the credits for this beautiful model goes to ET-Huang (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:144668) and Julien_DaCosta (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2493386, who remixed it for no overhang). In a attempt to increase my skills in Meshmixer and 3d-Builder* I remixed the statue of ET-Huang / Julian DaCosta to a piggy bank. I created the used fill-opening with screw-cap some time ago .(https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3383689). The model is 200 mm high. The wall thickness is 3 mm, except for the bottom where it is 18 mm to make it flat with the fill opening. The vertical opening at the top is 35x3.5 mm. You have to see the make of CiscoKEB, who printed a beautiful one in white Marble filament. Happy saving :) The Spongebob version (Squidwards house) can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5104074 *Although I was able to create this thing in both programs, the result of the Hollow-function in Meshmixer was a lot better (see picture). On the other hand i had to repair that stl in 3d-builder before it successfully sliced (slic3r). 3d Builder turns out to be a very good STL-repair-tool.

  • A First Good Idea
    As we need an interesting first posting here, allow me to make a useful suggestion (or two)... One little “issue” with 3D printing is waste. Whether it’s the skirt or supports or screwed-up prints, you will constantly generate waste plastic no matter how carefully you operate. Granted, you can save the waste and perhaps recycle it, but that is a topic for a later time. What I...
