3D Printed Action Figures Amidst Of Covid-19

The pandemic has massively disrupted existing supply chains. The world economy is built for a just-in-time supply. 

Companies only hold just enough material on hand to meet immediate demand. This normally works and leads to more efficiency and higher profit margins.

Now, though, this has broken down. Many factories closed for months. Ports are congested. There are major shortages of trucker drivers and other ground logistic resources. 

Companies in all parts of the economy are struggling to fulfill their orders on time. Prices of major goods have been soaring.

3D printing in general has become an option for businesses when it comes to massive production. 

 

Fight boredom with 3D printing Dota 2 figures and more!

3D creations are now regularly appearing in the fields of education and healthcare, and the food and car industries.

But did you know that 3D2GO’s printers are also great for producing small figurines? 

They can be exciting for any child, gamer, and collector who loves comic book superheroes and action figures. A plastic glider or printable chopper may be an exciting addition to your action figure as well.

3D printed robots can also do more than looking good on a toy shelf. For a start, you can often move their limbs. 

One individual has created a quadruped robot containing eight servo motors. It uses Arduino technology to help it move around.

If your love Star Wars, why not consider a 3D-printed AT-AT walker? It will be as quirky as it is enduring. 

You may remember the Back To The Future films, featuring the Delorean car that travels back and forth through time. It’s possible to create this timeless item too.

 

Printing dota 2 action figures with ELEGOO Saturn

The ELEGOO Saturn uses an 8.9 inch 4K LCD screen for both higher resolution and faster layer curing times. Additionally, it has a significantly larger build area than the Mars Pro, with a build volume of 7.55 x 4.72 x 7.87 in.

  1. Once you remove the protective plastic coverings on the LCD and FEP film, it is time to get to the most important preliminary step: leveling the printer. 
  2. As opposed to leveling an FDM printer, this is a fairly easy process. You will love the fact that ELEGOO includes a leveling paper made of thin cards with the Saturn. Not only is it the perfect thickness, but it also included the leveling instructions right on the card. 
  3. The second step was to enter the information for the type of resin you are using. Different resins have different optimal curing times for both the base layer for good adhesion to the build plate and subsequent layers. 
  4. Then import the rook model into Chitubox, and have it sliced using the settings both for the Saturn and the clear blue resin. 
  5. For the printing, filled up the resin tank about a third full as recommended by the instructions, plugged in the USB drive, and selected the rook model from the print menu. At that point, the printer got to work.
  6. Take note that while the Saturn is generally a fast printer, the clear blue resin takes a lot longer to cure than non-transparent resins. So I wasn’t really getting an accurate speed comparison between this printer and the Mars Pro.
  7. After finally freeing the rook from the build plate, it is time for standard cleanup. First,  wash with water and then, after it has dried, a few minutes under a UV lamp to cure the resin.
  8. After cleaning off any remaining liquid resin, you can now put the build plate into the freezer for about 15 minutes. To remove it, just run it under warm water. This will cause the resin to contract slightly, allowing me to pop it off the plate with ease.
