Well, i took it as a challenge and modelled that rook!
i will print it once my printer is setup and managed few decent prints... but first, the reprappro needs to be delivered!!!sad smiley
It needs a little bit of improvement on the proportions but at least one can tell it is slightly different from the 3DS version!
what would be a reasonable size stl file for this one? i generated 1 with custom settings and it is 4.5mb.
anyways...here is an image:

Some Of The Mods I Made To my Huxley Pro

*New Bed/Sled of my own design.
*Adapted Belt Tensioning Sytem (by Welding-Rod me thinks) On X and Y Axis
*Custom Anti-Z Backlash Setup with extra m5 Nuts
*Alternate Carriage with extra 6mm linear bearings
*Dual opposing fans riding the x-axis
*Custom built hot-end

There are other mods I want to make, but she just works too damn good for me to justify taking her apart winking smiley

Just so I can say I contributed a pic or two, nothing special really but I printed this and it's mate recently:





Aploogize for the bad focus, here's one showing the teeth better:




@Rum, I want a copy too :-)

Nice gears smiling smiley

Where can I get the STL?

OK, maybe not a resolution champion, but in Texas, we do it big.
350mmx75mmx25mm print.

this is Mitus, praying the black PLA spool holds on for the completion of a 5 hour print.

.3 layer, 25% infill, .6 skin thickness
kisslicer, with support

size matters, ask any woman.smileys with beer

A champ is a champ winking smiley

The name of the printer is Mitus? Are the designs for that printer available?
Re: Show Your Best Recent Prints smiling bouncing smiley (Pics Inside)
February 08, 2013 09:57PM
of course. solidworks, IGES, STEP, STL, by email,
( I need to post them on thingEverse eventually)

PM me I guess.

It started out as a huge Ultimaker style machine. NEMA 23's 1000x600x500.
That went well but I only had one bearing per axis in the head, then abandoned that for linear bearings. Also, the head and bars weighed about 15lbs, (20mm bars!) so I shifted it to gantry.

You should post it up on GitHub or Thingiverse!

I have been looking to build a monster sized machine. I have quality figured out... Now I want huge prints!
Re: Show Your Best Recent Prints smiling bouncing smiley (Pics Inside)

some pics from when it was an Ultimaker style (not sure what the name of crossed bars is actually called).

I should have used IGUS 20mm aluminum precision bars and bushings. cheaper and lighter than VXB stuff (no offense)

Let's go in the other direction! Like Davew_tx said, size matters!

Big picture on this link... dial-up beware!

The bust was printed on a Makerbot Replicator 2. The thing it's laying on is 1/2 of a toilet printed out of recycled milk jugs.

Approximately 3-4 mm layer height, printed in HDPE. We were experimenting with how adding detergent bottles affects the color. You only need about 5-10% of colored flakes in the natural to make quite a difference!

"Hmmm....I assume you are talking bank account......" grinning smiley

Very impressive machine you've got there.

=================================

Nice prints everyone, like the "illuminated Yoda".

Maybe someone could design a stand of some sort with built in batteries and LED facing up to place such prints on, would look great at night!

3-4mm layer height? let's see a picture of that machine, for sure (if you can).

Mitus has about $3k of spending to replicate it. it's mostly up on ThingEverse now.
I've probably wasted about $1k in random dead-end alleys and design changes.
Not bad versus a 10x6x6 Replicostly 2X from Rape-r-bot.winking smiley

I'm hoping to print some $1k parts soon, to recoup the costs quickly.
(try to quote a large part at REDeye, and you'll realize their eyes are red cuz they're high as a kite)

Our printer is actually a re-purposed DynaTorch plasma cutter. We just added a z-axis and an extruder. Mechanically, the Z-axis is able to do sub-millimeter movements, but when you're printing things like a 3x7 foot canoe, or a life-size toilet, it just doesn't make sense to print at that resolution.

Since when did "sense" enter the equation? winking smiley

Newbs. Here is mine:


It was printed from this specially customized elegant printer:


Here is actually a print after calibration:


Its decent I think for a duct tape printer that used toilet paper for linear bearings.

Edit: note the exposed lm8uu on the left Y rod, it was sticking so much that I just took it out of it's socket and replaced it with toilet paper. Yeah I know, I'm a creative reprap "developer" like that.

If you're using it to make parts for a better build, I have much respect for you. That's reprapping in all of it's glory!

Indeed I am! Here is what the old printer gave birth to:


I'm also building a CNC router right now but haven't had much free time lately.

@ Idolcrasher

Ok I'll post a couple of shots now.

In the spirit of "simple is beautiful", here are a couple pictures of a 40mm box printed on my work-in-progress h-bot.

[imgur.com]

I'm not quite to the level of the previous boxes posted, but I'm certainly happy with the progress I've made in the last couple of days.
