How precise is my huge delta 3D printer to make “Micro” Model

I suddenly want to share this model as “Micro” 3d print from my big delta after the article of “micro metal 3d print ”

My big delta 3d-printer is not only big for car parts or big projects , these days , a client talk to me , he think it should only print big models , in fact , as long as the parameter is correct , my printer can do “tiny” item .

Here is the picture of gold fish model , which is printed at 0.01mm per layer , 50 mm/s . ( I suppose if structure is stronger , speed slower , the appearance will be better )

Micro 3Dprint metal , stainless, alloy sample

I get in touch with top metal 3d print company , they focus on small & tiny and high value products , the machine is very expensive , usually for medical institutions, government, university , Multinational corporations , Aviation enterprises etc., and they also accept mass order to make products according customer’s request . Please check below pics to know how small is the 3D Metal print parts . They say other 3D print machine like Germany EOS can not make it . I hope some one teach me more about this field .

As I am good at Rhino3D and Grasshopper 3D design , I can help customer to design parts . So I can accept orders as part time job  .

Thanks the world brings so many interesting stuffs .

Amazing huge 3D printer create iron man at 1500mm height (one time shot)

Hey , this is my big project to print 1:1 iron man in one time shot , I did’t find any person as crazy as me .  🙂

The layer thickness is still 0.2mm height , so it waste long long time . Any way , besides some mistake of handling , the model seems great .

I don’t think those separate parts to print , then assemble is good enough , in my minds , some models is hard to assemble , see ? how about the support under hand ? ( I don’t cut those away because it looks integrated )

I have other project need such a huge 3d print to create in one time shot too . Will update later .

3D print golden lion with furs in one time

hello Everybody , i will try to make a small company in 2017 , at the beginning , let me post what I did here ,

Here is the 3D print golden lion with furs , I get model from Thingiverse , and test in my custom design printer , it works well .

Now I know how to create models (with furs )  by Rhino & Grasshopper ,  if any one need , just pay some coins then I will try to make .

Enjoy to talk with me !

Recently i am trying tiny product’s 3d print

I think the huge 3d print development should stop to wait more funds to throw into…

These days i get some inquiry to print small things. For example : little statue , Jewerly, watch back cover . They require small 3d print and beautiful surface like SLA +/-0.1mm .

Occasionly I test 0.06mm layer height by my huge 3 meter 3d printer , just print some rings, it is surprised that it works ! Here is pictures.

Such thing encourage me to revise my small kossel 3d printer to print Jewerly . Now I have finished design new printer extruder , it seems improve quality.

These days I will try to revise the frame , i have purchased linear bearing , this revision should be hard works, hopr that everything will be fine later .

I hope final resolution can reach +/-0.02mm or even same as SLA +/-0.01mm . Revising the small machine these days .

3D Print big model of respected Bruce Lee statue

Long time to “dive into sea” for a long time because of many study plan and working .

Today  I announce that my Big delta 3D printer is able to print 800mm diameter & 1.5 meter height of many things . Such as : Bruce Lee statue which is successful to print one month ago . ( Sorry I am too busy to update instantly . So my Huge 3D printer is OK to work and accept design from oversea .

Here is the pictures of progress of stumble :

See some trouble on head of shoe ? My fault on slice parameter  !

IMG20150708173953 -3

Fixed by some putty to adhere temporary . Go on printing .

Start to leg , but I meet trouble soon ! After I used out 1 roll PLA material , I start with new one , but notice there is color difference .

IMG20150718093311 -6

IMG20150718105656 -7

Poor PLA vendor didn’t take any responsibility for that , so i had to go on and forget this vendor forever !

Almost waist , the model start to shake … I use a chair to stable it !

IMG20150805174613 -10

Chair is not enough , now to support start to shake , I try to use glue , help a little only .

IMG20150730125005 -11

Trouble comes one by one and fix it by hand slowly .

IMG20150730125033 -12

microMsg.1439004031547 -13

That is because of poor material ! At last I found it . Later I decide to use another vendor’s material , so color change again .

IMG20150814115157 -14

It is stable now , everything works good !

OK , 3D print big model is not an easy job , I got lessons this time .

600mm length model was printed by my huge 3d printer

I get a demand from boss’s friend , he hope to print an object for a car . Wait 1 – 2 weeks until his engineer send me the 3D design artwork , but their UG poor designer create a bad model , can not use in Solidworks as well as 3D slice software .

Later he output files as *.stl , then I start to print . The first challenge is to level / adjust my huge 3D printer’s bed , I waste about one week to adjust step by step , and I found my 3mm aluminum ground seems not smooth . ( But it is still OK to try . )

firstlayer -1It is lucky that I succeed in one time , no need to adjust any more . After waste some hours printing , I notice the support’s density is too much , waste time and money , so I stop the Huge 3D Printer , and re-create the slice gcode . I joint it carefully and it looks no difference in model appearance . Here is final looking of the printed model .

Is it fine enough ? Each layer is 0.2mm .

Going to 3D print a bar light (beer pouring)

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 .

Four rabbit 3D print and surface treatment

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 .

image -1

Then started to try to polish surface to make.it smooth , i tried tools, paints , spray , muds and chemical method .

image -4

At last , l tested a lot, it seems only muds might be good .

Here is mud cover then polish looking .

image -5

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 .
