I just get an interesting stuff for coffee / cafe / bar , a special design lighting base , just put on a LED light and bottle and turn it on , as long as put on the table at night , it will be attractive .
At present I only have semitransparent color PLA , it looks white color only , if have customer ordered , I will buy other color material .
3D print can do almost any shape , I will keep on studying it .
As my customer want better looking of 3d print rabbit , I feel pressure on surface treatment . Just force myself to do it !
Firstly I printed four white rabbit .
Then started to try to polish surface to make.it smooth , i tried tools， paints , spray , muds and chemical method .
At last , l tested a lot, it seems only muds might be good .
Here is mud cover then polish looking .
another one use spray gold color.
How about paint and spray ?
Please notice i was sending 3d print samples to my customer .
Surface treatment is a hard and complicated works . I need to put more time on it to research .
A local customer send me a blue ceramic rabbit as attached picture , he request to copy as 1/2 size , 3d print to him for reference , I am thinking he should use it to make as toys .
I am the first time to handle such stuffs , you can see the reflection on rabbit body is big , most of 3D scanner can not scan reflect items like metal , glass , liquid etc., I try to find ideas from scanner maker , it is lucky that they just find out a solution to scan . See below pics , I am scanning the blue rabbit !
Rabbit is set on the round plate , which is able to rotate 360 degree by hand or electrical power ( motor inside ) , use a special design portable hand-held 3d scanner to scan , I suppose they use Kinect technology and enhance it . ( For some reason I can not display that 3D scanner here , but it is not expensive ! )
After scanning , there is still some stuffs on 3D model , I have to use Geomagic to remove it !
Now , it cover with wooden texture , looks like better .
Then I spend whole day to adjust 3D printer parameter and print it . Here is the final pictures .
The white 3D rabbit is 0.2mm layer height , speed about 70mm/s , 210 centigrade extrude heating .
