The kitchen sink of Prototyping, Mac Cases and general tech mayhem.

I started a dead end thread elsewhere, so I thought I'd give it a go here:

reboot of: Resurfacing printed parts, maybe tweaking colors in the process?

Links therein:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2lm6FuaAWI  (can't get the video to show up?)

Links harvested from that link:
  MSDS:  CEMENT-003 OATEY ABS EXTRA SPECIAL BLACK, 30916: Formula listed for all practical purposes

New stuff:

Fabulous parts casting tricks of the trade:
When My Brain Leaks, the Drops Drip Here.

I've got to hunt down a few more I've run across recently. Meanwhile I've got an open invite to visit Winter Custom Yachts to learn more about fiberglas layup and to collect as much glass fiber as I can carry. Can't wait to see their Ship Saw!:D

Lets get some links coming, traditional manual patternmaking suffices for large parts, printing is not the be all and end all of this stuff, there are age old techniques to rediscover for playing around with protomacs already designed by the pros and new entries.



Lets get some links going for cross pollination shall we? smile

If anyone I know ever actually and absolutely needed an 3D printer, it would be you, jt.

Nah! I can make just about anything I want to with my own hands and the tools I have here in the apartment, so little time, so much left to make, it's a wonderful life. cool

I tell people at work that: if I say I can make just about anything, out of just about anything and hang it just about anywhere, it's no brag. I've got the portfolio to prove it. Big Bad Rotten Apple, been there, done that, got the scars on my psyche to prove it. wink


Like I said, props, and model making, fine art and fine craft far predate stereo lithography, the first of the rapid prototyping processes.
