Intro to 3D Printing - A Series

ift.tt/2kQNpiO, Intro to 3D Printing - A Series , My blog and youtube channel has always been about things i'm interested in, things i build, and things i fix around the house. And a few months ago i got a new 3D printer. So i thought it would be a great thing to write about and record video's about.

I highly recommend that if you are someone that loves building and designing, you definitely need to try using a 3D printer.

 

In past years that meant spending thousands of dollars. But as more and more people and companies have gotten into 3D printing, the prices have come down. I will be getting more into things like features and costs, but the printer i have can be purchased for $200.

 

I plan on making video's and writing about everything i've learned and built over the past months: - How to pick out a beginner 3D Printer - My opinion of this Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer - Things i've learned in 3D printing - Settings - Filament Spool Holder - 3D Filament Explained - Enclosure - Dry Box Storage - Glass, Marble, Granite Print Bed and Cutting - Fix a Clog in Filament Here's a simple enclosure i made to keep the printer quiet, hold in heat, and light the work surface.

 

Here'e a big pile of all my 3D printing stuff.

 

Typical Thingiverse page where you can download all sorts of 3D parts.

 

Close-up of a 3D print. I was trying to figure out how to remove those little blobs. What to adjust in the settings?

 

Here's the 3D printer i have, the Monoprice Select Mini.

 

A design i did on AutoCAD for a filament spool holder.

 

This is a close-up of the hotend that comes with the MP Select M

 

I will be showing you what to look for when buying a 3D printer, how much 3D printers cost, how i built a printer enclosure, how i tested different print beds like glass, marble and granite, how i tested all different filaments and all the settings, tips and tricks to help people just staring out with printing. I will try to make things short and to the point, focusing on what you need to know and what's important. I will also be doing Filament Reviews of several different filaments from different companies.

 

Right now it's purely a hobby for me. But it is fun knowing that if i spent more time designing parts in 3 dimensions, that i would be able to print anything i could draw. I will definitely have to improve my 3D CAD skills, using programs like SketchUp. Considering that 3D printing is relatively new, I assume that most people are also beginners. So i would be focusing everything i do toward someone just starting out with 3D printing. So i hope that this is something that everyone is interest in as well and will enjoy the video's, pictures, and write-ups.
