It’s inadequate to 3D-print a component– there’s a myriad of points you can do from there! [FuzzyLogic] reveals us his technique of adding inlay labels, icons and text to a 3D print, by extruding them right into the print and also loading the resulting tooth cavity with nail gloss! This produces vibrant and also helpful prints, rather than plain single-color components we normally wind up with.
The evil one’s in the information, and also [FuzzyLogic] has actually obtained the information to a method. Toenail gloss needs to be watered down with acetone to make sure that it streams well, and also a specific mix of syringe and also needle will certainly be your pal right here. Obviously, do not fail to remember to variable surface area stress in– despite having well-diluted nail gloss, you can not make the grooves as well slim. A little bit much more acetone on a q-tip assists in situation of any type of delighted little mishaps, and also a layer of clear acrylic spray paint secures the lettering securely in position. The five-minute video clip informs you everything about these points and also a fairly couple of much more, like the essentials of squeezing out message and also symbols in a normal CAD plan, and also has a little incentive video footage to those seeing up until completion.
Including markings to our prints is a beautiful completing touch! If you’re seeking even more of that, right here’s a custom-made tool-changing printer with a pen accessory making lovely personalized units for the Pocket Driver
