Cotty's 3D printing adventures

I’ve updated my SketchUp recently! It’s my christmas gift, but I can’t wait to try it :wink:
I’m now a pround owner of a 3D printer (Artillery Sidewinder X1).
In this topic, I will share some of my prints, experiences, thoughts, … feel free to improve my printing skills!

I’ve used different online print services in the past and we have several (much more professional) printers at work, so I’m not a beginner at 3D printing in general, but of course with my own printer.

One of my first self-printed models is this wall mount for a mobile rounter that I’m using in my caravan…

Is that a wood-grain filament?

Only simple brown, but I have a sample wood fill already at hand :wink:
(Maybe I need to switch to a hardened nozzle before usgin it?!)

Not a perfect print, but a perfect object :wink:

After a few tries:

I’ve printed some perfect working replacements:

@Cotty, what is the little hole above the P for?
Whatever, the blue frame is well designed and seems to “fit” perfectly!
How long did it take to print?

I love it! and I particularly love the fact you could make one in wood in a fraction of the time, but that’s not the point. :+1: :+1:

If you don’t cover it with a nail, it allows you to peek into 2021.

Those egg cups are excellent, I’ve never seen that design before. The ones around here are more like mini goblets that you have to place on a saucer. The eggcup slides around and the soldiers get knocked off the plate.
