Just How Strong is PLA? Lab Experiment!

altcover

So I had the wonderful opportunity to use my school’s physics lab for whatever experiment I wanted, as long as the teacher approved and as long as it was for the purpose of a school paper. So, I decided to test how much stress could be tolerated by 3D Printed bars, printed with different settings (layer height, wall thickness and…

Top 6 Unique CAD Programs (2016)

Cover

In this list, I have compiled a list of the top 3 3D Design/CAD programs that have shined in one way or another. The list is in no particular order, as each program is a gem of its own. I call them “best” by comparing them to other programs at the same price point, and with the same target audience…

3 Types of People I Hate in the 3D Printing Community

Lol

{:en}Okay, first to explain what I mean with the term “3D Printing Fad”, because it has created a lot of confusion within many of the articles I have written, and it is what I base my analysis on. I acknowledge that 3D Printing in itself is an additive manufacturing technique used for rapid prototyping. The media, however, tend to present…

8 Unbelievable Things You Can 3D Print

High Hacking Heels

I have not 3D-printed a Girlfriend yet, but these are just as cool. I have been researching the 3D Printing world and advancements, and there are many objects that have been created that I never, ever, expected could be 3D Printed. Most of them, in fact, I have already printed myself, and they are actually working. I compiled a list…

SD-Card Vs. Repetier Host

Best way to send G-code to your 3D Printer. Note: This analysis is based on my experiences with Repetier Host and the Wanhao Duplicator i3 V2. Other programs and printers may work differently. But, there are no large differences across budget printers in this analysis. TL;DR of course an Ultimaker will act differently that the printer I use. Two months…

3D Printing And Makers Can Fix Everything

One month ago, a friend of mine managed to break my high-end headphones, which were supposedly unbreakable. Trying to fix them myself, using duck tape and other conventional methods, was either ineffective or plain out ugly. Now, I have been 3D Designing for 3 years and 3D Printing for 6 months, and in the span of a week, the idea…
