Fooling around with my 3D Printer | Prusa I3 MK2

Last day of christmas holiday. I was thinking about going over material borders.  Due to the still quite slow printing speed and expensive 3D-printing-material it defintily makes sense to reduce 3D-printing on connecting parts of for example a bigger structure. this is why i’m currently working on the connection to textile components. On the other 2 pictures you can see an attempt to print extreme thin and lightweight with an additional aluminiumlayer.


yesterday i found some time to develope this small clamp. currently it doesn’t hold anything except it self but at least it works and fits properly. the metalparts are just a normal M5 screw and bolt with an additional 3d-printed key. if you tighten the hexagonal key its impossible to remove the screw from the edding. no use for it, but very impressed that it works…

you can see:

-The 3D-Modell in Rhino-3d (Software)

-The „.iges“ File in Slic3er

-The sliced (an ready to 3D-print) file (with support structure

-The new clamp and

-the use of the clamp



Handwerk und Form – Competition 2015 – done

this weekend we’ve had the „Handwerk&Form“ exhibition in Andelsbuch.

-I wrote about my bathtub already earlier.-

So, today i could take a look at all the other projects. Of course i would have prefered the first price… but i’m still happy, being able to participate a contest, starting in the same line with Peter Zumthor (he made a chair). The Handcraft-skills were really impressive (of all the projects!)

-and special thanks to my models – Vera, Andrea and Tobias. looking good

Yesterday i could visit the production site of jodok. He’s going to build the bathtub for this year’s „handwerk und form“ exhibition. In about two weeks the whole piece has to be finished and will be judged by a jury. I’m really looking forward to see the final project.
