I’ve had some opportunities to tool around with an Ultimaker 2. Considering that I’ve been dreaming about seeing how my sculpts might look built from stuff instead of bits, this is pretty exciting for me.
So, without further ado and (I think) in chronological order:
1. Printing Bad
Love that expression 😀
Normal quality on the left, low on the right
2. The Great Old One
When the supports fail, the Old Ones show themselves…
3. Ain’t got no ABS
ABS print here. Nozzle popped a support off. Print aborted *sigh*
4. Who Needs Hands?
More PLA on this one. Wonky supports gave this poor guy some issues with his wrists.
5. PLA Punk
Custom support structure under the chin left this one with a permanent beard, unfortunately.
6. Legen-Dairy! (Very tenuous PLA reference)
I think this was at normal layer height which is disappointing as it looks very rough indeed. May well be just too small for the model. Bigger NPH coming soon!
