small bracket big implications

Post by sgedesigns » Sat Jun 21, 2014 5:04 am

I've been using an UpMini for over a year, for fun and for prototyping, and getting to know 3D printing. This is the first time though that I've made a part for use in one of my commercial projects - and it was perfect. I design control room furniture for TV stations, and this was a console retrofit, where we replaced an entire section of worksurface with a new one, with new cutouts. This little bracket (3-1/2 x 1-1/8 x 5/8 thick) was a strong, easy solution; it took about 1/2 hour to print in ABS, 200 microns, most-solid infill. It's no great shakes as a 3D print, but it portends bigger things. So I made a movie. http://youtu.be/it2mKLNoCLQ

Great use of resources (you and the printer)
