Tripple Play

Running three identical prints on three different printers all at the same time. That’s gotta be what’s called, “Doin’ 3D printing!”  Ha!

Little Mama Cetus (original size Cetus I), Cetus2 (2 color much larger), and Anycubic Vyper (conventional FDM).

The print file is an original KautzCraft I call “ripple”. It is a 100mm round bowl with angular ridges on sides that have a small “ripple” wave on the larger ridges. Just a nice little design effect.

Urge to Purge

I am watching the operation of my Cetus2 two-color printer. I discovered a way to implement what I call “shadow-purge” printing. When changing colors with a single nozzle printer, there is a period of time and distance required for one color to cease flow and the new color to fully become full flow. This period is call a purge.

The nozzle design of Cetus2 makes this time and distance very short. But it still exists for perhaps under a second.

Quantum Junque?

A little history

Haven’t been playing with Quantum physics for any length of time. But I have thought about it for probably decades. I don’t know if that counts for anything. Probably not. 

So I just invented using quantum physics as a new source of inspiration for things happening when doing 3D printing. There are many quirks and possibly a few quarks when developing science skills involved in 3D printing.

Out Whaling

Out Whaling

Cetus is a word for a whale. Their logo is the tail of whale (I’ll tell ya’). The Cetus was a sea monster in Greek mythology which both Perseus and Heracles needed to slay. I have three small Cetus (Ceti?) but my newest whale is the Cetus2. Did I mention I received it for free in a contest?

Tiertime (the manufacturer) had a New Years Wish contest and asked for contribution they would judge. Turns out they liked mine the best, and sent me a free (pre-production) Cetus2.
