Well, I have to say being a HAM has come in handy beyond Rag Chewing and listening for bad weather. I was merrily printing along on my 3D printer when it started to throw errors. A little bit of futzing around and I found that the bed wasn't heating up. So here I am ready to contact the company and […]

Nikki's P90 build is officially finished!!! I even whipped up the little plaque on the Elegoo Neptune 2D in black and silver dual extruded. THAT machine is a lot of fun! Now of course since she claimed that one for herself, I get to make a Triple Rail version for myself. But I plan on doing a few […]
Getting closer to the end with the P90. I have 2 coats of black, unfortunately we grabbed gloss at the store so I'm going to have to hit it with a matte sealer too. There still will be a bit of a shine but not too terribly bad. Of course Nikki claimed it for herself. I made her an SG-1 Logo plaque […]

Just needs a couple of touchups where I have fingerprints from gluing myself to the model while attaching the cab and chassis. I had quite a bit of fun printing, painting and assembling her. https://gallery.designcreations.us/thumbnails.php?album=28

We're nearing the finish line! Just have to finish printing the sights then decide if we are going to print a magazine or get an airsoft one with the translucent body and dummy rounds. Of course, why do a P90 if you aren't going to do a Five-seveN to compliment it.

Started on the P90. All together both body parts took about 48 hours to print. I have the upper receiver printing now. Going for the Triple Rail version. I think after this I'll do a Walther PPK, WW2 Luger and MP40. Get the Classic German collection going. ;-)

I have to say the second run at multi-colors came out MUCH better!! It is an articulated butterfly keychain for Nikki's Mom.
So the first dual extrusion print is done! Yup it's a bit of a mess. I had my retraction settings set WAY too low. Like .8 or something when it should be around 7 or 10! But all in all, not a bad first print. Yeah I picked up an Elegoo Neptune 2D. It was crazy cheap for a dual extrusion printer and […]
