Such as the "Afternoon Projects" thread, this one is the same for any random prints you do that may or may not pertain to a certain project. Your own designs, or even existing models from Thingiverse or elsewhere are welcome. Post those Prints!
nomad_spacers_2.stl (24.49 KB)I printed out a Stanley Cup from Thingiverse that I should have done a few months ago during the Chicago Blackhawks run during the Summer, but here it is now for the start of the new season. Printed in Silver ABS, which is more Bottom NES Grey and a bit too dark to for this but I'm fine with it.
For reference for those that may not follow Hockey
Hatoful Boyfriend St. Pigeonation School Emblem Keychain
This is a multicolor print that I achieved on my single extruder printer by pausing at different layer heights during the print to change filament colors. The keychain itself was designed around this, having varying heights on the design areas of different colors. This print, having only two colors, was easy to achieve.
Using a Single Extruder for multicolor prints, this leaves "stripes" on the side from printing out the whole layer(s) in the single color. I always try to offset this look by mirroring those colors on the print so it looks more uniform and purposeful, rather than just a random array of color stripes up the side, so a yellow base was used for this print to coincide with the yellow top. I usually keep design "blocks" at 1mm and change there for a cleaner effect.
For the purple accents on the base of the emblem, the design was subtracted from a taller height to recess into the lower layer of purple giving the desired effect. You can see here the printer finished off the accented design area but kept using infill around it.
A bit more explanation on the how design in layers and keep the design mirrored. This keychain was 8mm tall, so layer 0-1 was yellow where I paused and whiched to purple. Layers 1-7 were purple, where it was paused to add yellow for the final layer on the Pigeon and the crest outline. From this side view you can see the yellow "sandwiches" in the purple, which IMO looks better than if it the print was entirely purple and capped off with the yellow top. I have a 3 color print that I'll probably post here next soon so it may make more sense then.
And a reference to the keychain, for those who aren't interested in purposely weird visual novel dating sims that start off making fun of the genre but trick you into caring about it's actually deep and insane story when real **** starts to go down (which is most of society I'm sure)
