My 3D stuff

The traffic cone is “cool” because it uses two different types of plastic.  The idea is that one will be ABS (supports), one PLA (object), and the supports can be melted away in acetone.  I, being a bonehead, just got ABS plastic so far.  Just ordered a PLA spool….

It also look a little “smudgy” because I was playing with making it smooth with acetone.  I found the correct way to do it in a acetone vapor bath.  That will come later…

Here is the bottom of the traffic cone.  Really smooth against the plate….


Since you guys are into Lego, I decided to make a block.  The black one is the printed one – a 60 degree corner.



My youngest is really into owls now – so I printed some “cuddling owls”.  Pretty smooth exterior without acetone.

Also did the standard “wrench”

Also did a nut/bolt.  It really works – as you can see…
