You don’t always need to 3D print with supports to craft incredible 3D prints. Still, many fantastic projects require these additional structures. Thus, Gambody wants you to look at the main types of 3D printing supports you can use, especially if you are a beginner and wish your figurine or statue to look professional.
Anyone working with 3D models, printing figurines and collectibles, or useful things for a home could take full advantage of a free STL editor. Such software helps you to edit and repair STL files and improve (customize, scale up/down) your favorite projects.
Gambody has compiled this 3D printing guide to help all beginners learn the fundamental theories, essential tools, concepts of how to 3D print. Uncover the history of 3D printing, popular hardware, software and the supplies needed for successful results.
It is so much fun to 3D print with multiple colours, especially when your 3D printer comes with two nozzles. Still, you can learn how to 3D print 2 colours with 1 extruder. You can even practice to 3D print multiple colours with a single extruder and create fantastic models for your collection.
It can be a real challenge to 3D print with flexible filament on FDM 3D printers. This material is perfect for making DeLorean time machine tires and seat belts, dragon wings, clothes, capes and many other parts of 3D printing models. Gambody – Premium 3D printing marketplace wants to share tips for printing flexible filament. Follow our guide to make your new masterpieces look beautiful, boast all the intricate details and impress everyone with a masterful work.
The stunning Varian Wrynn 3D print made by hobbyist Gareth Lee is a must to see. This WoW figurine boasts so many details, has such beautiful bulky armour and Shalamayne sword that working on this project is a real privilege for many fans of 3D printing technology and modern video games. Gareth agreed to share his painting tips and reveal some secrets that let you turn a 3D printed figurine into a real masterpiece.
Once in a while, every hobbyist might think of increasing 3D printer speed and making figurines and models in a matter of hours, not days. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could 3D print 10 times faster than now? Today Gambody wants to share tips on how to upgrade your 3D printer speed without losing the quality of the prints.
Resin is impressive material for 3D printing which helps to craft smooth surfaces, highly detailed models and high-quality figurines. It provides numerous possibilities for post-processing and model finishing. However, its main drawback is the high price, which causes users to search for the best ways to save as much resin as possible. DLP/SLA Eco version of 3D printing files is one of the methods to try in 2020.
Modern technologies continually develop. Experts are always in search of new methods to simplify everyday tasks, and such positive changes are widely used everywhere, including the 3D printing industry. You can 3D print without supports, eliminate additional structures, save filament and your time. And your result will look fantastic and professional even if a 3D print is crafted at home, on an affordable FDM, SLA and other types of 3D printers.
Whether you are new to 3D printing or an experienced hobbyist, you probably wish to protect your filament from tangling and drying. PLA and ABS are the two most popular filament types among enthusiasts. Thus, it is best to figure out how to store 3D printer filament (PLA and ABS) at home correctly. This way, you can preserve its properties and simplify the 3D printing process.
3D printing crafters are very talented, hardworking, and patient people who are in love with their hobby. They spend many hours producing impressive 3D prints, and peering into their projects and lifestyle can inspire you. Joe Broggio is one of the crafters who enjoy 3D printing. We are happy to share our interview with this talented American enthusiast and show you some fantastic photographs of his 3D printed Godzilla figure and other works.
“Pattern” is the parameter I would recommend you to pay your attention to, which is used to print out support structures and a raft. I advise you to use “rectilinear” -straight lines. It is enough for support structures and easy to remove from a printed model.
In this part I would like to describe one of the most important Slicer’s parameter.
I would like to make your life easier, that is why I decided to share my experience!
The story is dedicate to all home 3D printers’ owners, who use ABS and PLA materials. Those who have novolescence printers – your model will be cool without any advice, that’s for sure 😉
I want to share my first experience in 3D printing, if to be precise it was 3D printable file of Video game scale model, designed by Gambody Team.
Software used was also provided by those guys – Repetier-Host Gambody, and I’m happy to share my thoughts here. I made my fare share of mistakes, but it was all made for the sake of tests, and now I’m ready to save your time 🙂
