Calibration Cubes


 So John was printing pieces for his chair last night and while they did print there was a bit of line/space jumping going on, my first thought was that there was a problem with the extruder, more specifically a clog in the nozzle end where the heated filament comes out, but just to check I thought I should print a calibration cube. There are all kind of things you can print to help calibrate the printer but I wanted to see if there was a problem with the x,y, or z axis, so this cube would tell me. Obvs its not supposed to crumple apart like that lol 

Big problems with the z axis so after John greased the z axis rod, cleaned out old filament, tightened all the rest of the screws and cleaned out old melted filament from the nozzle, I printed another cube.

 
 This is what is it supposed to look like, so now to print more random prob pointless stuff lol

Mermay Day 1


 Once again its Mermay so I am going to try to participate every day. Using this prompt list as a guide :

The above mermaid could be painted more but I dont have the time to right now if I am going to try and get more mermaids done. Maybe in the future I will come back to finish it and fix the things I dont like.

3D Dragon Print


 A simple dragon I made a few years that I printed today, took about 4 hours to print and fits into my palm so its not huge but its a good size. 😀 The above shows the supports I had to get Cura to put into the print so the neck wouldnt collapse.

The finished print, worked pretty well but still needs a bit of small tweaking, prob to print speed and heat but thats what tests like this help with.
