3D Print Projects

This thread is meant ot share your 3D printing projects, knowledge, experiences,...:P

Here's my work :D I had to deal with a broken gear of a food processor :D My mom asked me for help, because it's an old one and searching for spare parts is useless.

Luckily I could use my experience with SolidWorks, I got from my Asus MarsII Waterblock project. This saved me a lot of time and Google is as always your friend :joyous: to find CAD gear tutorials. :D It's made by an Ultimaker 2.

Here's the result:

I ended up designing this for an Assassins creed obsessed friend on solidworks. The image above is a render of what should be the ideal product, but is had to redesign the cut-aways on the sides due to the walls being too thin for the 3D-printer.

I sent it to get printed at shapeways.com out of New York out of stainless steel, it should come any day now.


I designed this one for my GF, it came in already, gold coated stainless steel. The base of the triangle is 1.5 inches long and the thing cost me just under $20. This one arrived already but i don't have any pictures on hand. Everything came out fine, but the surface was a bit too grainy for my taste :/

I'm thinking about opening an online store on shapeways, see if there's any money to be made there with my designs.

      Hi guys,
      I own a MBPr Mid 2012 with the following specs:
      i7 3820QM @ 2.7ghz
      16gb ram
      756gb ssd
      nVidia 650m
      Windows 10 technical preview
      My egpu setup is:
      PE4L 2.1B
      Sapphire HD7970 6GB Overclocked Vapor-X edition (2x 8pin power)
      500watt psu - 18/01 swapped to 1200watt silverstone psu to fix stability problems
      Sonnet Echo express pro
      Powered 1x to 16x molex riser - 17/01 removed due to instability - 18/01 added again because stability issues were due to $20aud psu
      My setup if finally working!
      Installed bootcamp
      Ran bootcamp driver installation.
      Ran setup 1.2 (Thanks Nando!)
      Compacted PCI.
      Ran test chainloader config
      Booted with egpu recognised as HD7900 series in device manager.
      Benchmark results
      Unigine Heaven 4.0 extreme preset:
      Score of 947 windowed mode. Max fps 75 min fps 17
      Cinebench r15:
      OpenGL score of 77
      Alien Isolation:
      Not a real benchmark but fps didnt drop below 60 during the 1 hr of gameplay on max settings
      Farcry 4:
      On ultra settings the game is playable not dipping below 35fps with vsync on. Very high settings see an increase to a min of 45 fps.
      Pretty surreal what can be done with a talented programmer (Nando) and a bit of persistence.
