We have also created a guide tom go with the video. The two new high end scanners are owned by the Engineering department. You can get special permissions to use the scanners from the Engineering Department if you require a high end scan. Video Workshop & Guide > Previous Next

3D Printing Infills & Rafts

Infills can really change your mechanical properties of your 3d model. It can change the strength, resistance, the finished look, print time and the cost. You will also need to consider infill densities when you are using plastic insert nuts. A 3D model will require dense areas for the insert nuts to bite into. I found a few great articles recently, one on Infills and the other on Rafts. Rafts can help your model adhere to the build plate and give it a solid foundation. From the first article from M3Dzone.com, these are the recommended infill settings: Recommended 3D Print […]

Our Advanced Vinyl Cutting Class – Multi-Colour Decals & T-Shirt Heat Transfer

Our advanced Vinyl Cutting Workshop explored using multiple colours for vinyl cut decals as well as for heat transfers for clothing. The process is all about registering the multiple colours. We created registration marks for both the decals and the heat transfers. With the decals, the multi-colours are applied to the transfer paper first, and then the final decal with both colours (or more) is applied to the final object. For the heat transfer, we applied masking tape to each registration mark, and then heat transfer the first colour to the fabric. Then the next layer was lined up to […]
