Huge delta 3d printer challenge Eiffel Tower model for test

huge 3d printer test eiffel tower -1

No matter whom has a 3D-printer , people finally like to challenge the hardest model to see if their 3D printer is good , so do I .

The 3D printing mainly parameters are : 0.2mm layer height , 60 ~ 70mm/s which is already several times more than those X-Y-Z 3d printer in local market . ( I don’t like to use 30mm/s like them , it is certainly not my research direction .

I spend some days on it . At first , I buy some turbo fans , print retainer and tight it on effector ( some fans threw away ) , and I adjust the parameters to reduce extruded drawing issues , then test other small models to evaluate if my huge delta 3d printer is good enough , finally I decide to change to use the best PLA material I can find locally , although it is expensive , I hope it helps .

Some one separated the model for 4 pieces because model is quite big , but when I slice the biggest one , my poor computer almost can not stand  ( what a big model !!!), I test the smallest part ( top part first ) , the effect is amazing , but the extrude speed parameter is low , 3cm base is broken , later I have to use “Breakpoint continue” technique to joint .

the 2nd part ( count from top ) is easy , I don’t meet any troubles,  but the 3rd part slicing software has trouble , one unexpected layer appear , whatever I try , it is there , it seems the model has small issue . Then I keep on printing .

The 4th part is the biggest , and waste 10+ hours , when printing on Railing , I notice this part is extreme slim , a small mistake might cause wholly failure , I change the printing speed and extrude volume immediately to avoid troubles , so the tower railing is there , not like those poor machine , railing is disappear at all . 🙂 When grows up , the structure become horrible , each place is almost point to point print , In order to be faster , I am crazy to raise the speed to about 70mm/s . ( As I thought , poor printing structure is hide inside , unless you split my model , you won’t see it …

Finally , I glue four parts together and here is some pictures . I feel satisfied on my huge delta 3d printer , if speed is slow , it is accurate enough to print anything as long as it is big , and it is stable to bear hours hard printing . But I also notice my expensive PLA material seems Stickiness is not enough , so I have purchased other expensive material to wait for test later .

Huge 3d printer is not easy to handle , I put lot of times to taste how it is , hope that people will like it and give me some supports on orders !

Super big delta style 3D printer is made !

Hello , everybody !  I silence for a long time and seems disappear , in fact , I am designing a big machine : Huge delta 3D printer ,

my hugh big 3d printer -1


When I talked my thoughts to friends , every one think I am crazy , it is impossible to work with such limit funds support , I insist on it this time because I saw other one is successful .  After months and months , day and night install & test , until today , it works !!! ( I feel I am luck , I almost give up …  
:-p )

huge 3d printer bed -2

According my test, max diameter 800mm is OK  (I think it can reach 1 meter square , but I make small mistake on design ) , and max height 1500mm is possible , ( I think it can be 1700mm , but I make another mistake too ) , the material can be PLA at present , I really hope to make ABS and other later .

It doesn’t matter ! the most important thing is , it works at the beginning  !!!

About the building progress , it is really not easy :

1. I have to find a big place to prepare , at last I throw away a table in my office .
2. I have to find the long aluminum support , very long and hard to take back , I paid a lot in extra express fee , but at last , I have to take it by myself , I put in on my arm and walk thousands of meter !
3. I have to waste lots of time on designing structure and waste some money at the beginning too .
4. I have to climb ladders by myself and tight each screw .
5. I link wires by myself , some is too long , some is short , have to joint together .
6. I burned electric board twice ! what a pain !
7. My huge 3d printer bed design is totally wrong , I waste a lot of money there and I have to give up whole design .
8. Crazy adjustment is behind ,  I spend of leveling for at least one month !

I think I can write a big book for eating such stuff one by one .  Now , it start work as I expect ,  I will publish more info later ,  Thanks the god ! and have a good day , everybody !

I have assembled Kossel 800 3D printer

Although is not good looking , at last I spend half month to assemble it as attached picture . photo_1410054984156 -1   At the beginning , no help from manual , because the designer is lazy or busy to create the manual for us , he just give us the guide to reference Kossel Mini !!!  So all the customer form a group to discuss and solve problem by themselves . So when install the frame , in fact I assemble wrong, have to disassemble 2 – 3 times again during install electrical part . At last , about 1 – 2 weeks I finished installation of frame and electrical parts , helped by our Kossel 800 seller group . But when setup software and calibrate the machine , we meet trouble again . Our talent team found a special way to calibrate by manual instead of unused G29 auto calibration . We can print now . Here is the calibrate test picture . 1409982550819 -2   Do you notice the tiny wire drawing , yes , it is not the perfect , but after create models , it is easy to remove by knife . If try to remove it during printing , we have to adjust slice software parameters at computer side . Anyway , I have not much time waste on it , I just hope to start printing lots of models , skip it now . microMsg.1409819279310 -3In order to backup the plastic accessory ( designer’s plastic’s quality is not good and some start to crack .) , I print some spare parts . Then I hope to print bigger toys for my daughter , I start to meet big headache . ( A common issue for FDM printer )  , Model edge cock ! 1410486306305 -4   Above pictures means I lost some model because of edge cocking . When printed Inverted triangle models , plastic material is easy to deform , the edge is probably raise then kick off the printer head . My score is : Lost three big model in one day .  It says that ABS is more headache on edge cock than PLA too ! Our strong Victims team create a method to lighten this issue , add a D9 pc fan near the printer head as below picture . Just hope when material comes out , D9 fan can cool it down faster to reduce edge cock ! IMG_20140913_113109 -5   Printed a special model to install the fan . Now I am printing big model again , hope that it works ! Finally I have to say , custom Kossel 800 is not easy to play , but it is interesting , it attract me to waste time and money on it now !

Have you seem paint on carbon fiber ? luxury carbon fiber car parts

It is a long time the carbon fiber car parts has not big revolution , factories just wrap carbon fiber clothes as different shape for car parts or other industry area .  Until today , I see paint on carbon fiber car parts !

Here is the pictures , who knows why he paint like this way , and how much he claim ?  more than USD5000 ! crazy , let’s it put into the museum by himself , I won’t buy it ,  I am just wondering how to make .

But I just know , he paint it by hand , then maybe use heat transfer print … that is all info for this luxury carbon fiber car parts at present .

I booked Kossel 800 3D printer

As I research market more , I notice more and more people jump into trading feild in China , good products are always sold out but poor design products are hard to find customer however paid for advertisement . I start to feel that I should step into product development field , or sooner or later , I can not provide a good products .

Firstly I studied 3D design software : Rhino 3D , which is mainly design for shaping . ( I have no interest to study Pro/E or Solidworks , because those mainly face to molds . I would rather place my design to technician rahter than I involve into the deep sea of molding .

Secondly , I booked the cheapest and still said good quality 3D printer : Kossel 800 , some weeks ago , it is just about USD250 shipped , FDM working method , but able to revise the length / height , or even upgrade as laser cutting machine , CNC machine , PCB printer easily . Another reason is I notice this machine is created by a Chinese talent whom is carefully for his products , his previous products are all good remarks , so he should be a good boy to create Kossel 800. Here is a big picture to show Kossel 800 3D printer .

kossel 800 parts list -1

Until today , I have waited Kossel 800 3D printer for some weeks , some one got the machine yesterday because he booked earlier , he print a gift for his daughter , the 3D output seems good enough .

kossel 800 first output -2

The Kossel 3D 800 printer’s design and quality should be up to the market’s FDM commercial 3D printer , the difference is just in what material it use . It says that if poor material is also OK , just the model because ugly , have to polish by yourself .

OK , just some days left the machine will come to me , I will upload more news about it .

Rare offer, hid reverse light kit for car rear

As more and more install hid headlight to see front clear , how is other car position , for example , car rear light in red mask , most of the car are same low brightness and dim ,

some extreme guy in local market aim at this market , quickly create a new product : Hid reverse light kit , custom design the rear light , increase brightness , here are two pics to show what is that :

hid reverse light Ballast -1 hid reverse light bulb -2

The light use smaller and shorter bulb to try to fit the small rear lamp , and use special ballast & cables to link both lights ,

It is obviously that hid light will generate more heat which might burn the red lamp cover , and there is possible that some rear lamp is too small to fit this bulb . If happened , you might have to change bigger rear lamp at your side .

Sheet for checking Diamond’s weight and diameter

Are you interest in Jewelry business ? Me too !

as I know more and more about this business , today I know each diamond on Jewelry has their standard specification , that means , if go to buy raw diamond from market , the supplier just ask you what diameter each you want or what’s the weight each you want .

So if you want to make a 10g ring , you have to consider how many pcs of what diameter on the ring .

Here is a sheet for this field , just for compare diamond weight and diameter in local market .

How to use Sublime as external code editor in FileLocator Pro

   Today I found a good code tool , FileLocator Pro , just to search target words within any type of files , like html , php , txt etc., 

I like it much because it looks very clear . But I notice bottom right is able to view only , can not edit file at the same time , that means have to use external editor .  At present I am using sublime as code editor , after reference Editplus and other choice’s , I know “$(FILEPATH)” is to open the file accordingly , but the working line is not the same between Filelocator & sublime ,

The filelocator provide choice to link Editplus so as others,  there is no sublime linking method . ( that means when turn on external editor , it just stay in row 1 , can not locate to same place as FileLocator’s , it is obviously not friendly play .)

filelocator -1

I spend whole afternoon to find a result in internet , until at night , I found a link ,

where wrote this :

Application=C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 2\sublime_text.exe

filelocator config -2

i test half hour to get correct answer : 


Now when I click open external editor in right corner some where , for example row 99 ,  the sublime will turn on and locate to same line , row 99

I am very pleased to solve this and get useful tools for future development tonight.

Got extra 10G free google drive space via Quickoffice

After 1 – 2 weeks waiting , today I got extra 10G google drive space , google is a promised company

I knew that if installed quick office on mobile before Sep.28, 2013 , there is an extra bonus 10G for two years , then I tried to install on Sep.25, but at that time , my mobile does not have google play or google frame , even I rooted it , reinstalled those missing software , I can not login with quickbox . 

At last , I decided to replace whole android system for the first time . After a nervous waiting , my mobile started to work again , I installed google play & frame again , it is WORK !

Before Sep.28 , I logged in for  Quickbox for several time then wait until today . Oct. 04 , 2013 , I see the space raise as below picture 10G GG drive promotion

Although the promotion expires in Oct.03,2015 , I will like to use google drive more than dropbox .
