LESSON TEME: 3D Scanning and Printing
In this week, I tried to print out several 3D objects and scan my body. At first, I printed out a design rules model After printed it out, I check the pricision of our 3D printer. Our 3D printer I used in this time is KEYENCE AGILISTA. AGILISTA is a kind of 3D printer using UV resin as it's material. I also printed out 3D printing textiles which are difficut to make subtractive processes using a kind of a milling machine. These textiles data are here: Chain Mail and Bracelet. Lastly, I tried to scane some objects by using a handy 3D scanner. Our co-workers scanned my body.
Test the Design Rules
The design rules model were printed out by KEYENCE AGILISTA. This 3D printer can output a very pricise object. It took about 4 hours to print out the model. After print out the model, I sank the model into water pool to remove off support materials for all night. Next morning, I picked up the model from the water pool and dried it for a while. The output result seems to be enough good because all slit are constructed and also reproduce the sharp tip in the model data.
3D Printing Textiles
I have prited out only solid models by using several 3d printer. In our local lecture, I knew a genre of 3D Pinting Textiles and wonder that our 3D printer can print out such kind of soft models. So, in this time, I tried to print out two textiles data; one is Chain Mail and the other is Bracelet. I downloaded a Chain Mail File and a Bracelet File from Thingiverse.com By using KEYENCE AGILISTA, it took about 3 hours to print them out. Then, I peel a raft off the models. These models were sank into a water pool to remove out support materials. About 3 hours later, I picked out these models from the water pool and remove out small fragments of support materials by using a sharp spatula. Lastly, I dried these models for a while and weared these models.
Scan My Body
I tried to scan several object by using Sense 3D Scanner. This scanner is a kind of handy scanner. So we can easily use it without calibration process. My co-workers scand my body to keep the device in his hand and walk around me. We found that this work should be very careful becase there are a traking lost when we quickly move the scanner. We took my body for several times because of some mistake-scan. It's difficult to fill several holes on these polygon serface on the scanning work. After that, I checked the scan data by using Meshmixer. I haven't printed out the models yet but surely print out it soon.
Printout My Original Design
I printouted my original designed parts for my final project by using AGILISTA. Figure  shows the CAD design of my final project. The side parts to join each wood parts are printouted. Also, I printouted the innter parts to fix the electronic parts. The Figure  shows the final appearance of all printouted parts.
I'm very interested in 3D Printing Textiles. This is my first time to print out such kind of soft models. I have a kind of stereotype that a 3D priter prints out a solid object. But, in this time, my stereotype was overturned when I see the textiles works.
