Welcome to episode 1 of Maker’s Muse, a series on 3D Printing, design and making. In this episode I look at, in my opinion, the top current 10 tools everyone with a low end FDM 3D printer should own – and how to use them! Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on upcoming episodes!
Hey all! I decided to put together a video showing how I turned a tiny storeroom into a fully functional workshop, using budget techniques over the years to build up my tools and set-up. Yes, it was a tiny hole in the wall. But not for long! If you’re interested in getting involved with making projects then I highly recommend having a watch and adapting my setup to your own space and needs!
The media has made 3D Printing look like a fantastical, instant process… But how long does 3D Printing actually take? As this video came out in late 2014, some information may now be incorrect or out-dated as newer machines and technologies have been made since then. A new video regarding this question is in the books for the future!
Getting your files 3D printed is easy, but did you know there’s simple ways you can shave heaps of cash off the cost? 🙂 Watch and find out more! As this is quite an old video, I am planning to revisit the content in this video and make an updated one in the near future, so stay tuned!
Did you know the Hot Air Gun is one of the most useful tools you can use for your 3D Printing Projects? In this video I’ll go through 5 ways you can use one to improve your prints. 1 – Supercharge your 3D Printer Preheating for better prints in Winter. 2 – Remove crazing and unsightly marks from 3D prints. 3 – Tweak and shape your 3D Prints after printing. 4 – Easily remove PLA cobwebs. 5 – Return colour to filaments which go white after Acetone Smoothing.
Working out which is the best way to create your parts on your FDM 3D Printer can be pretty confusing! In this episode I go through the main factors influencing print orientation with practical examples.
