Hello again RoboHappy,

How is the 3d printing going? How is your SynDaver AXI printer doing?

Any prints yet?

I have been printing many things as I need them. Have yo seen the hand I printed?

Here it is:

or the deer hook above?

I have been using PETG filament - works great for me.

Waiting to see what you come up with :-)

Gmornin there EzAng :-)
Love how the hand is printing out. How much different was it to set up using the PETG over PLA? Im still havent tried it yet.  Ive been printing work related parts on the SynDaver , no robot parts yet. Last time I printed a robot part was on the Monoprice. Had just printed an endcap to an Actobotics part. 
I got a lick out of the deer hook too  :-)

Good morn, RoboHappy,

Thanks for your comments on my beginning printed parts.

I thought 3d printing was a bigger deal then I see here. Only I few people talk about it in this forum - The net is the place for many 3d printing groups I see for all sorts of printing and free  stl sites.

What CAD software do you use?

I might check out Fusion 360

Where do you work that needs parts?

I have never used PLA yet, only had 2 rolls of PETG, so that is what I use. By the net, YouTube and our own tweaking, I figured some good setting for my machine - I see my machine used different settings for PLA - If you want,  I can check later the settings...

thanks again,

EzAng

Its been mostly PLA for me, I tried ABS once on that XYZ printer which failed for me. 

For my job, our drafter uses Solidwork, and we are currently making either small test jigs to hold circuit boards for rework or assembly, or prototypes of small boxes for upcoming product releases.

At home, most of the time I download from Thingiverse and try to tweek if needed with Tinkercad.  Im an old 2D Autocad user, so im still trying to wrap my brain around the the 3d part,lol esp while trying to learn Fusion360 when I have the time. 

Last week I was printing out some of those "Touchless" door hooks I got from the net for my fellow coworkers.

Just completes my first gcode file on Fusion 360 -  a case

Sliced it on Cura

printing now, I see what happens  :-)

Nomad, I printed the IoTiny holders, I needed to drill in each corner a hole for a screw to match the IoTiny's holes.

The original IoTiny holder file had the holes in the wrong place
