Thor Hammer/Captain America Shield

Postby robpauza » Tue May 30, 2017 12:52 am

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd share a couple recent builds that I utilized my Raise3D printer on. Both of these are 100% 3d modeled, printed and painted by me. The nameplates are laser etched. I'm really liking my N2 printer! Anyway, here's a bunch of photos and there's also a few video links of the builds.

(I used Hatchbox PLA on the Thor Hammer and eSun PLA for the Shield)

Questions/comments are definitely welcome. Thanks for looking.

-Rob

And, here's a build video of this one too:

Those are EXCELLENT! The prints turned out great! Can you give a few details on layer settings and I would love to hear what you did in post for the detailing.
That hammer is outstanding!!!!

Nice work sir!

EDIT: Never mind, just subscribed to your YouTube channel. Very nice work on the videos also!!!

Question: How do you feel about the plastic putty vs plain old elmers wood filler? I have had good luck with wood filler adhering to pla and it is very sandable....

lami3d:
Thanks so much. I appreciate it.

bellatrixzen:
Thanks for the compliments. As far as layer settings, I'm not doing much unusual. I pretty much use default settings, but lay down the first layer really slow and use 225c for extrude temp and 50c bed temp, then after a few solid layers take bed to 40c, then after about 1/4" or so, take it to 35c. I've found that if the bed is hot, it sticks really well, but it's more likely to warp later as upper layers cool and contract. (I think, at least). As far as the putty goes, I've never even thought about using wood putty. I may have to try that. I really like the squeeze bottle on the vallejo I used, but I think I prefer Milliput. It shrinks little to none based on coverage, but is two part and therefore a bit more cumbersome to use. Also, I've definitely noticed that different brands of PLA and even different colors sand differently, so that may also be a factor in what works best as well.

Brandon:
Thank you sir.

Hi Rob,
Your work is amazing on this! I see you also use lightwave3d and i noticed your build plate is different than the one that comes with the Raise unit?

Thanks a lot. Yes, I've been using Lightwave for a long time and am too lazy to learn anything new. I still like it though. Actually, my build plate is the one that came with the N2. I use a glue stick so it just has lots of glue caked up on it. If you're talking about the green mat, that's just a cutting mat on my desk.

Anyway, thanks for the comments.

Thanks for the response. I have been using lightwave from 5.6 and still to this day i cannot seem to move away from it as well. I discovered the 3rd Powers plugins for lightwave that changed my whole idea about modeler. I wish Newtek would pay attention more to modeler but i still prefer the interface to many other programs. I am new to 3d printing and will follow your work. I subscribed to your Youtube channel and will be watching for more content.

Oh nice. I started Lightwave at v.7. I will definitely check out 3rd Powers plugins. Thanks.

Modeling for printing is a bit different, but you don’t have to worry about topology. -Just make sure all polys are closed without stray points/lines.

I’m working on a Fortnite Battle bus now. I’ll drop the video in prob about a week or two. I’ll post it here too.

Cool on the bus, i look forward to seeing that.

One question if you do not mind answering. What brand of filament do you prefer using with your raise?

I’ve used Hatchbox a lot with good success, but have started using eSun PLA+ almost exclusively. I like the Raise brand too but it costs a bit more.

Thanks once again for the response. I will try the eSun product. I have tried 3D Solutions PLA but the results are not good. It seems to work well with my CR-10 but the Raise does not like it.

Sorry for high jacking your thread but i appreciate the response.

Rob, up a few posts on your Raise settings you said you set your extrude temp to 125c. In Fahrenheit that equates out to 257 degrees? I started using the eSun product, which by the way is top notch, but i wanted to verify if that is really what your extrude temp is?

Thanks

Oops... so sorry. I use 225c.

I just edited that previous post to be correct. Thanks for questioning that. I hope it didn't clog up your extruder. :(

Thanks for clarifying that! No i was using 215c. Do you find that the eSun works better at that temp?
