Captain America Mega Bust - Day #15
Hey gang!! Captain America, Carnage, Batman & an Anycubic Photon! So much to talk about! .
The Captain America mega bust that I'm making for @justinauletta is still progressing. I'm still printing, sanding, priming and repeating. Two more pieces of the torso to go before I break open the epoxy glue 😁
The artist that designed the awesome Batman 3D model I posted the other day (go l👀k!) has a new competition! The rules for this one are really simple. Print and paint the Batman model designed by @fragmintz311 and I have until the end of the year to get it done which is so much better than only having a few weeks.
I printed the head of the Carnage model the other day (scroll 👉 left). It was 3D printed at 0.06mm resolution and took just over 6 hours! The result wasn't bad but I lost the bottom teeth when I removed the supports. So this leads into the last thing to talk about... .
I just bought my 2nd printer, the Anycubic Photon! As much as I want a 2nd fdm printer, I think I'll get more out of the resin printer with all the models I make. The quality of the smaller parts like the Carnage head are so much better when printed in resin. As you'll all see very soon.
I think that's everything going on from the land down under. What's happening with you guys? Please share your 3D prints. I love seeing what you guys are printing.

The young company @spectroplast now plans to bring to market customised medical products such as hearing aids, breast prosthesis for breast cancer patients and eventually even artificial heart valves.
Their ultimate goal is to save lives: the founders of the @ethzurich spin-off Spectroplast, Manuel Schaffner and Petar Stefanov, have developed a novel 3D printing process capable of making biocompatible silicone parts. “In the long term we hope to use the technology to offer medical implants,” says Schaffner, the young company’s CEO. “And not in standard sizes, as is the case with conventional off-the-shelf products, but customised to fit the individual patient perfectly.”
Until now, Additive Manufacturing has traditionally produced objects made of hard materials such as metal, ceramic, or plastic. On the other hand, soft elastic silicone is still being used exclusively with injection moulding, where different elements of the composite material are fused together at extremely high temperatures of around 300 degrees. Schaffner’s doctoral research came up with a novel method that makes it possible to create soft silicone parts with a 3D printer. He is naturally reluctant to go into more detail, for fear of encouraging copycat products.
