Nice Fast Prototyping Expense pictures

Some cool rapid prototyping cost photos:

Universal stand-alone filament spool holder (Fully 3D-printable) – Print test parts 1st

3D-print only what you want although testing!

As you currently realise this image is not the complete filament spool stand (www.thingiverse.com/point:508896). It shows a vital component and very best-practice associated to 3D-printing.

As with any product development one never knows precisely from begin how issues will match together.

Based on what 3D printer and settings you use, this spool stand will take a few hours to print. It is therefore unnecessary to 3D-print lengthy item iterations just to uncover out that you need to have to alter a portion of the whole style.

The 3D-prints shown in this image represent the parts of the model with fittings which we wanted to give a test-run ahead of we defined the final dimensions.

Therefore we cut away the smallest feasible volume surrounding the fittings and 3D-printed them in a fraction of the time which otherwise would have taken hours and hours to find out.

Right after measuring the benefits we could adjust the CAD-model correspondently and get perfect fittings when 3D-printing the final model.

This procedure is ideal for testing overhangs, fittings, critical dimensions, material consumption price, and so on.

So in other words…. do not waste time and filament! :)

From http://makerfaire.com/pub/e/1117:

The CandyFab Project is an open source work to create low-price three-dimensional strong freeform fabrication technologies for culinary, educational, and artistic purposes. We will show progress towards designing a new CandyFab hardware reference platform, constructed mostly from off-the-shelf parts.
