With some help from a very helpful fellow, the base piece of the PSCD32 is now being 3D printed!
This machine is called a Creality, a word which I will never spell or say correctly in my entire life.
The fellow who owns the device has a special settings file that he's applied to my model, and he's started off a print of the base for me.
If you're wondering why it's green... it's not. It's yellow.
If you're wondering why it's yellow... it's because that was what was in the man's machine when he activated it. I'd have gone for a CD32-matching colour like black or dark grey, but being choosy would've been just plain rude.
It's starting by printing a thick wall for the floor.
Crikey it's slow.
This hexagon pattern is the infill of the base of the base.
Hmm... that's not good. It's starting to try to print the base of the posts on either side of the device, but the circular footprints of them are being deposited as these crooked shapes. I don't know whether to stop it or let it continue. If I stop it, I'll have to fix it somehow and come back another day. If I leave it going, maybe it'll sort itself out somehow. If the device was miscalibrated somehow, the patterned interior layers wouldn't be perfectly stacked, so I'll assume the nozzle knows where it's going and it'll form the correct stack shapes eventually.
The upper slab of the base piece is done.
is happening to those columns.
I love how neat the shapes are appearing. Those interior walls are awesome. The angled bases of the columns have come out perfectly!
