3D printed Pachimari
- Class: Technology.
- Software: Blender and Paint 3D.
- Material: Pink PLA.
- Machine: Raise 3D.
- Aim: Learn how to draw in 3D simple things and print it.
- Process: I decided to draw and 3D print Pachimari. At the start I wanted to repeat something like this: https://www.myminifactory.com/object/3d-print-overwatch-pachimari-multi-color-figurine-69633, however, my drawing skills not as good at the moment, so I decided to do a simpler version.
In order to create 3D shape, I used Blender because the software is free and different tutorials available online. Nevertheless, due to the problems with my laptop, I finished Pachimari in Paint 3D. Personally, I prefer Blender now, however, my laptop was not able to support it.
The next step was printing. Due to the problems with 3D printers at the lab, I went to another place to finish the project. In the LabSpace Raise 3D were used. In took 5 hours to print figure and around 25g of plastic were used in order to create the 5cm figure.
I am happy with how figure come out. Also, I learned how to (kind of) draw in different software’s. Before trying blender, I also explored Rhino 6, AutoCAD and Sketch-up.
