Many incredible 3D printing models can be crafted without supports. However, many fantastic projects require these additional structures. It is interesting 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.
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 to produce impressive things. Peering into their projects and lifestyle can inspire you. Their masterpieces can give you new ideas on how to spend your free time. 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 Godzilla 3D print 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 🙂
