Wipac tell tales

Post  Bigjim on Tue Apr 11, 2017 8:23 pm

I have dug out my old tell tale and 3D drawn it. I will have a go at 3D printing some this week. The 2 images one with & without WIPAC, I doubt at this scale the WIPAC will show.

Very impressed Big Jim

That must be a fantastic bit of kit if one knows how to use it.

3D printging

Imagine a glue gun on steroids. The software slices the CAD file and the printer prints dozens & dozens of layers/slices. the machine bed moves down by say 0.15mm each time.

3d printing

Post  kerabo on Wed Apr 12, 2017 3:39 pm

Yes I have seen them working.

is it strong?

Lots of uses for one of those.
Can you scan an item or is it a program?

3D printing

Strength depends on the design. Generally CAD is the better route, then circles are circles and curves are arcs. Though taking a scanned file, you can reverse engineer it back to solid geometry.
I made a replacement door hook, that had broken. It has been up for 4 months and still holds the bath robes.

this is something new http://vadersystems.com/ metal printing from molten wire, not scintering, then fusing the particles with a laser.

3d printing

Post  colk2004 on Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:06 pm

I'd not thought of doing that. I'd been trying to think of a way to make a mould for injection moulding. Amazed to see 3d printers are now under 200 for the basic XYZ one. Not quite ready to stump up that amount for the WIPAC tell tales though Laughing

Cheers Colin
