Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone is having a good day with family and friends and for those of you who have to work black friday, I feel your pain. I once too worked retail during a Christmas Holiday season, worst experience. Anyway, I did a little bit of 3D printing today. I fould a model I liked on Grabcad.com and decided to print it out. The actual piece was printed on my Lulzbot Taz 5, using PLA plastic. For extra detail I used sharpie and paint pens to add color/detail. Such easy methods of adding details/color goes a long way. Whether it be spray paint, sharpies, markers, paint pens or another easy medium to work with, using simple tools is the easiest way to bring your prints to life. For more advanced techniques primers and acrylics can be utilized for extreme detail and perfection. We will be posting more information on this soon!
