Very cool Wachara!  Which model did you get?  If you don't mind, can you post close up shots of the final plastic pieces so we can see the resolution capabilities of the printer?  I figure I'll wait a good 2 years until I get one since that area should be much improved in that time.

 

Really I just want one for things that would require more than a 3 axis CNC, like the hinge mounting holes you have on the sides of the cups.  Don't forget to draw a slit for the cable to fit through. :)  I think it'll also come in very handy for making a piece that connects the hinge to the headband.  Good luck!

I have a Prusa i3.  The working area is only 180 mm x 180 mm.  My intention is to use it to make parts like the arc and headband.  I'm still learning to draw and having a hard time puting holes in their precise locations. 

 

Unfortunately, I don't have a good camera with me now.  Following pictures are the best that I could take.  I still need to learn a lot about this 3d printing.  I think it has a good potential.

What a fun machine a 3D printer is!  I think it has a very good potential.  :L3000:

Great looking work Wachara.

looks to me like you're getting the hang of this pretty quickly 😊

Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Thanks.  I've been having a lot of fun learning to use the printer.  I think I have learned quite a few things so far.  :wink_face:

 

 

 

 

The ABS plastic is quite good.  It's melting point is high, and so I try to use it to make a male jack for the headphones.  Looks like it might just work.  :wink_face:

Great work

Brilliant! Very creative and dedicated work. I wonder, do you think a person without much technical knowledge could manage to build a pair?
