The Sounds of 3D Printing Failure

Let’s face it – 3D Printing on a hobby level is FAR from flawless…   Working next to 3D Printers on a Daily basis, you begin to pick up on certain sounds occurring when something goes wrong – here’s a few of them, so you know what to listen out for next time you’re kicking off a 12 hr print!  

Let’s Print! Chivalry: Medieval Warfare – 2014

In this tutorial I’ll show you all you need to extract weapons, characters and more from Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, or any other game based on the Unreal Engine, and create them physically using 3D Printing.   Shout out if you want me to do a Rigging and Posing tutorial next for all those T pose models. 😉  

Lets Print! Skyrim – 2014

In this tutorial I’ll show you all you need to extract weapons, characters and more from The Elder Scrolls V – Skyrim, or any other game based on the Bethesda Studios game engine, and create them physically using 3D Printing.  

3D Printing from Fallout! The Auto Axe – Part 1 of 2 – 2015

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to rip any game asset and 3D Print it from Fallout 3 or NV. It’s easy to learn and a great way to get a physical copy of your favourite fallout weapon!   The parts were then 3D Printed on the Wanhao Duplicator i3 in Clear and Grey PLA filament. Total print time was about 3 days on and off, around 32 hrs total  

How to use the Face Transform Tool in Meshmixer – Quickly alter .stl files!

In this quick video I’ll show you how I use the face transform tool in meshmixer to modify existing mesh data. It’s not perfect, but might get you out of trouble one day!   Ways I use this tool: – Alter the width of a feature – Make text higher for more definition – Make indents deeper for more definition – Add thickness to a base or layer for more strength  

Playing around in Meshmixer 3.0 – Very Impressed!

The latest Meshmixer is out – with new features such as multi material printing tools, .svg export options, and more! Let’s have a play with some of the new features available in Meshmixer 3.0   If anything this video proves that just like everyone else I learn through a long process of trial and error! 🙂  

Repair holes in COLOURED 3D mesh files with Meshmixer! Tutorial – 2015

There are a lot of ways to fix bad mesh files for printing, but what if the mesh file has colour data?   In this tutorial I’ll show you how to use the Erase and Fill feature in Meshmixer to repair holes and gaps, while blending in surrounding colours for great looking, full colour 3D prints.   Be sure to subscribe for the Advanced Series of 3D Scan editing where we’ll combine this technique with several more difficult steps to fix a very bad actual 3D Scan and preserve it’s colour at the same time.  

Add Thickness to Delicate 3D Prints! – 2015

In part 3 of Let’s Print! Chivalry: Medieval warfare, we’re going to be thickening up the zweihander using meshmixer Extrude, Makesolid and Fix for minimum thickness features.   Even though you may have a perfectly good, printable stl file for printing – it may still fail! This can be due to features being too small, thin or delicate for the printer to reproduce. Luckily you can use meshmixer to thicken up these delicate parts to create much better looking, stronger 3D Models.
