Topic: Group/category suggestion
Hi everyone, new user just registered. Chose this place to hang out as there seems to be a nice solid member base.
Would really like to begin talks in an area dedicated to Finishing processes. Would be nice to have a more general area perhaps under 3D printers where there are categories like Filament etc. Would be nice to have one called "Finishing Processes & Techniques"
Really interested in various ways of finishing, would promote new ideas and ways to finish models.
Could be the following sub category under that header.
>Finishing Processes & Techniques
>Chemical (ie Acetone)
>Mechanical (ie sanding)
**Some examples that may fall under the Ideas category- Sand Blasting,Bead Blasting,Spray,Vapour,Brush/Polishing. Could even be painting prints/colourisation.
**What about even strengthening prints? For example does acetone smoothing edges increase the structural print strength by blending the surface.
**Creating Connections/Joining sections together looking in to creating larger models from multiple sections and the most optimised joining methods. ABS Welding? I've seen a piece of filament in a Dremel chuck look pretty successful, or even using a 3D extruder pen. So many areas in these category/fields but keeps it focused to these areas so like my self arriving at a forum can find this field.
This topic/section could give a great section focused on to these sub areas for driving creativity.
