After finishing the scan, i edited my hair and the beard and snotty nose the scanner gave me. To do this i used the erase and trim tool. Once finished i used solidify and exported the scan to an .obj file.
To prepare the 3D model for the 3D printer i used the PrusaSlicer software.
First i set up the slicer by adding the printers from the Fablab.
Michelle showed some different setting like how to add support of to alter the model.
I went along with the following settings:
Print settings: 0.3 mm DRAFT
Filament: Prusament PETG
Michelle showed us the following steps to start the 3D printer:
Turn on printer
Preheat for filament - if there’s already a filament loaded, unload filament first
Put in SD card (backward)
Cut filament in 45 degree angle
Put filament in tube
Wait till filament comes trough nozzle (until a clean color comes out)
Prepare print-bed (remove old filament, clean with spray)
Print from SD, select file
Close door for pet - Open for pla
I Used the following filament:
When i tried to print my 3D model i ran into an error after loading the filament. I did cut the filament in a 45 degree angle and inserted it in the tube but after loading the filament no old or new filament came out of the nozzle.
Apparently i didn’t use enough force to load the filament. After inserting it again the filament loaded as normal.
My 3D printed me is no beauty but is still really recognizably me :)
