The first 3-D printer arrived yesterday. It’s sitting on our dining room table. That is not a good thing! He promises it isn’t going to stay there and one way or another, he’s correct!
He made a little boat.
He hasn’t “cleaned” it up yet to get the fuzzies off.
He started making a butterfly. I was outside working and came in about 8:30 p.m. and it said it still had 6 hours and 48 minutes left before the butterfly was done. That was going to be a late night of printing!
But it somehow got its act together and finished within about an hour. Maybe when I looked, it was still calculating but there’s a huge difference in one hour and almost seven hours. Kinda sounds like what happens to me when I say “I’ll just knit one more row and then I’ll get up and do laundry!” and 5 hours later, I’m still sitting and knitting.
I tried getting a picture of the butterfly being printed. You can kinda see the outline of a butterfly.
And, there it is! I think I had the wrong side facing up but I didn’t realize the other side has a design.
Tonight I think he may try to make me some little round stitch markers for my knitting. It seems like it’s going to be a fun thing. Last night he said “I’ll bet you’re wishing you would have bought yourself a 3-D printer instead of the Cricut!” I wasn’t thinking that but I do think that 3-D printer is a fun toy.
