You can do a comparison with the great print done by WalterMo, here.

Hello Hal!

Only some questions: Is the surface anyhow treated after the print? (Polished?) And comes the surfacepoints from the resolution of the printer or from the scan? And what do you think yourself about your print?

Greetings,

alex

Hello AlexNoir,
Yes, the surface was treated after printing: with sandpaper, solvents and with some tools. If you mean the "sparkes" the small dosts and imperfection on surface... these cames from printer. My conclusion about the result is: not too bad for a cheap 3D printer. Now That I've make some little modification in order to reduce the shakes during printing, I can obtain better results in some criticla areas of prints.
But What I can save in money with this machine, I must spend in time to refinements and post processing. Recently I've bought a wax-pen, a tool with heated head, usefull to work the plastic surfaces. I will use it to refine more my next prints. Also, thenks to Walter, I will be able to print in ABS, too. I'm impatient to test the "acetone" technique and test it at different conditions and time of exposition.

This kind of machines can't be used to print "ready-to-use" objects at professional quality.

Regards,
Mattia

Hi,

MakerBot Replicator 2 - 3D Prints

Hello,

thanks to WalterMo, now I'm able to print in ABS, too. The great "hotBed" created by Walter allow the ABS to be sticked on the platfrom during printing.

Thanks Walter!

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Mattia - beautiful work! This is result from Makerbot2 hardware or ??? This week I look at B9 machine for jewelry work. Your quality looks better than ones I see on MB2 machines.

Thank you for posting!

Hail to the master of scanning.

Can I ask you some questions?

1) Do you print the result of David Shapefusion as it is or repair/tweak it with a 3d modelling software everytime?
2) Do you use a 3d modelling software for any reason (not necessarily for printing) ? In other words, do you find the result of Shapefusion enough?
3) If the answer is positive, which programs do you recommend? for example do you like Geomagic?
4) Would 3d printed mechanical parts be strong enough to be used as replacements? Would they actually work?

Addition to the 1st question, I'm asking because I don't know the workflow. I have no 3d printing experience..

After shapefusion, is the obj file directly opened with makerbot software and directly printed with the print command?

I must reduce the mesh density, because the machine need light files. And I must cut the pices in orhder to print in the right scale.

Lunat1c wrote:2) Do you use a 3d modelling software for any reason (not necessarily for printing) ? In other words, do you find the result of Shapefusion enough?

The Shapefusion result is perfect. Just too dense of poligons. I use different 3D editiong softwares to decimate, cut, divide and modify the files if needed.
Lunat1c wrote:3) If the answer is positive, which programs do you recommend? for example do you like Geomagic?

Well, I don't use Geomagic. I use 3D Studio Max, ZBrush, mainly.

Lunat1c wrote:4) Would 3d printed mechanical parts be strong enough to be used as replacements? Would they actually work?

No. my machine can print in PLA and ABS, that are not good to work as mechanical part under stress or high temperatures. From the pirnts you cna get casting and create in epexy resins or metal.

Regards,
Mattia

p.s.: about your last question... ShapeFusion can export OBJ, so u can import directly into printing software, of sure.
