So since my last post I’ve been playing with that resin printer.
I’ve been learning the settings and trying different test prints, with a couple of different resins.
It’s also started me having to look back into 3D modelling software, as it appears the ideas I’m coming up with aren’t the easiest to create. This printer is fantastic on detail, so it’s opening up old ideas that the normal 3D printer couldn’t get enough accuracy with.
One of these is this filigree pen body. I took a filigree pattern, (eventually) managed to wrap it into a tube shape and then put it around a standard tube. A run over the filigree with a metallic marker, and hey presto!
