3D printed bulldog love
Hi there readers if you in the way of this heatwave then it is better to stay in the shade maybe read some collectibulldogs.com articles like our latest on 3D printing and why collectibulldogs now owns its own version now and having lots of fun with it too.
So if your like me “a novice” to the 3D printing world firstly your missing out on a whole new hobby and there’s now printers out there that come intact and ready to print, you can buy printers that now run on android and iOS.
Imagine that if you can afford one or find a discounted version then the Sculpto plus is one of the better choices for beginners, believe me when I say build it yourself kits are cheaper but your forever playing with its mathematical parts just to keep the plate feet even.
Buying the Sculpto plus means you have a ready made 3D printer and once you’ve downloaded the app signed up your ready to print it’s that easy, thingyverse have thousands of pre paid models to choose from and as far as I’ve seen you can submit your own creations as there’s many there not printed out yet.
3D printed bulldog love Continued
Yes there are small catches to buying this piece but nothing you cannot research and find cheaper, the filament is meant to be the manufacturers only and can cost up-to 30 English pounds, I’ve seen others at half the price
A suggestion would be check the filament size and A find a cheaper alternative or B contact a plastics factory and see if they can produce the right material in the right size, also watch whom you buy from we used amazon and believe the seller took out the plus part.
On YouTube the reviewer does pull out an extra box and the plus comes with two filaments, the box contains extra plates ones glass and the other is of a rubber substance making detachment of the finished model easier.
So if your thinking yes this is for me then to buy one is about 300 English pounds nearly double a DIY kit but when you see what the machine is capable of the downsides do not seem so bad, Sculpto do also recommend that if your making something with more than one part maybe use different colours.
Let’s chat 3D printed bulldog love
The first thing most 3D printing enthusiasts start printing is the filament holder as this doesn’t come with the package that you’ve been sold, the holder takes two hours and the legs take eleven hours, one downside I forgot to mention was the time it takes to create one piece.
My first piece was not for the collection but a dice 🎲I do not know why it just popped up and I wanted to see this pieces of hardware in action, thirty minutes later just like science-fiction a dice was sitting there on the plate fully formed.
As I plan to use the printer for collectibulldogs I’ve created a couple of pieces and videoed them so you can see, I’m not here trying to promote this product or get anyone to buy one it’s just easy to explain about something that once plugged in and set up can just start recreating with very little effort.
It’s brilliant that iOS and android can carry the apps needed to run this 3D printer most are pc driven and you’ll need a scanner if you do not have the blueprints or code to printing out objects, we have not seen this for android but know apple sell a sensor.
How 3D printing works
In the midst of photographing the collection For the brand-new website and then packing it away as we go, buying new pieces to showcase especially amazing bulldog memorabilia antiques and my wife’s pregnancy it maybe a little while before I get the sensor.
The sensor is about four hundred English pounds and attaches to the iPad it then scans whatever you wish it to creating a 3D image and then turns that into the coding needed for the printer, I love technology it really can help in many ways.
Giveaways prizes homemade key-rings and other such ideas is how I’ll start maybe someone will see an object I’ve created and ask for the same, but the hard ware does have more practical uses and why I bought it.
With the printer you can recreate objects but also parts of objects, an example would be the T. rex at the London museum of natural history, your looking at a complete skeleton but your fooled in the best way possible.
Enjoy the YouTube videos
To understand how the T rex would of truly looked is much better than a pile of bones strewn together to show an incomplete depiction of this dinosaur, the 3D printer came along and now is used to create many objects one being the bones not found with the rest of a skeleton
One thing most museums do have that collectibulldogs does not and that’s skilled curators spray mist painters all those clever people that spray the printers results to more represent what it’s supposed to be intended for.
Many others pieces need the help of the 3D printing skills, sabretooth cats were found but many had their trademark oversized teeth missing so a printed version is often used to replicate a real tooth.
This application could be implemented here I would divulge any pieces or parts that are not Real or authentic, if the piece needs professional attention I of course won’t try myself and send off to be looked at.
A toy with professional applications
The module itself is portable showing the durability of the x and y axis on the turn plate, the turn plate itself is a spot of genius this means forming the perfect circles is easier than the four pole top runner feeder.
Money was not an issue when choosing and most at around 500 English pounds looked sleek but most are cube shaped with the top runner, these need more calibration and constantly attended to, if the bottom plate moves by just a millimetre the whole build could be ruined.
I’ll be having fun creating the latest bulldog patterns until I’ve learned how to get more patterns or just be patient and wait for the iOS apple version of a 3D scanner but for an iPad,it’s amazing what apple think off to help those that cannot or don’t use a pc I just wished it was all cheaper.
A reptile educational website run by a friend sees the practical uses and has shown an interest in borrowing the Sculpto to recreate some creepy crawlers, some of their clients are to scared to touch a real spider but a plastic reproduction could mean the beginnings of children losing their fears.
Want a 3D bulldog love for all
Brilliantly and aptly titled is thingyverse this application or website shows you all the free downloadable files that you do not have to buy, free models that you do not have to pay for can be printed by sending directly to the Sculptos inner workings, admittedly there is not a massive bulldog section at the moment.
Im hoping to change that when I purchase a apple sensor that way there will be lots to choose from and the collectibulldogs collection can take the credit as others download our own models how cool would that be, that’s 3D printed bulldog love for you
If it so happens you do want any piece replicated please wait as 3D printed bulldog love can only be shown by coping from thingyverse until I get that sensor once I have that I can offer any of the pieces for anyone interested to own themselves, if you can get to thingyverse have a look and let me know.
Lets share the 3d bulldog love I’m not fussed printing out and sending out a 3D image you just pay to get a lump of plastic skilfully turned into a bulldog to where you are and I’d ask to leave a comment and or email us at the usual email address firstname.lastname@example.org I’m sure you don’t want your private details like an address to be seen by everyone.
3D printed bulldog love Lastly for now !
Collectibulldogs does not worry to much on the piece chosen if anything We believe We have saved money by buying this piece of kit it takes all the effort of setting up and if the build is short you can leave the room knowing the plate will stay stable yet never leave the 3D printer for long due to hot elements.
We can add this to the virtual reality oculus quest we also went and bought, checking out the website and switching between blogs and the game bait (fishing game) I get lost and before I know it my quest needs a recharge before I can go again
wed like to leave by saying thank you to visitors whom we do not do this without we want to thank digital Wulf for their patience on the rebuild we are slow in getting new visual content so that they can go ahead and create magic to finish the website I needed to buy to push us forward.
Please remember we do not advertise so if you #collectibulldogs or add our url to your social media formats like our writer Wynne has done on Twitter would be magnificent and help us heaps, as we do not buy and sell we need you to share us out and get collectibulldogs.com the worlds only bulldog memorabilia collection out there, let’s help keep this breed in the public eye not just on popular auction sites.
check back soon 3D printed bulldog pieces will get shown once in a while
