We have been busy over the last few weeks on four separate architectural modelling projects. The first of these is back from the printer. Continue reading 3d Printing Architectural Models
Inspired by an excellent seminar by our friends over at Form3d Services, we ran a small project to look into how 3d printing might help with spatial problem solving. During the seminar, there was an interesting discussion on how 3d printing could help plan loadouts on supply vessels. A 3d model of the deck of the ship with models of each piece of cargo used to plan the load-out and solve problems related to awkwardly shaped and outsize cargo. However, I am sure there is more to planning the load on a ship than just the shape. Weight is obviously important and there must be software out there that helps with planning how the cargo should be loaded. However, there was a consensus in the audience that a physical desktop model might indeed be useful in some scenarios.
That got us thinking about a problem much closer to home (literally). Continue reading 3d Printing for Spatial Problem Solving
We have been working feverishly at Celtic3d to get some new functionality ready for the site. Here is a sneak peek at what we are currently working on. Continue reading 3d Printing – Customize it yourself
Got Windows 10 and a network connection?
3D printing just got a whole lot easier. Windows 10 comes with 3D Builder pre-installed, therefore everyone with Windows 10 can open, view and edit 3D model files right on your desktop. This brings 3D printing within reach of everyone and we encourage you to give it a try. Continue reading You already have everything you need to 3d print.
Blender 3d printing text
Blender is a very powerful and flexible tool for creating and editing model files for 3d printing. While 3d modelling from scratch takes time to learn, we show you an easy way to get started with Blender 3d printing text.
Adding text to an existing 3d model is of the easiest ways to make something unique and personal. If you need a 3d model file to follow along with, you can download our photo frame model for free and modify it as much as you like.
When it comes to multi-coloured 3d prints, it is difficult to match the versatility of inkjet technology combined with powder. We have done some experimental prints using online services and recently, signed up with Make Aberdeen to get access to their ProJet 460 printer. Make have a range of printers that available for use by anyone, in Belmont Street, in the city centre of Aberdeen.
