Astounding New Technique for Smoothing PrintsI've just come across a seriously amazing new technique for getting prints that look as good, and sometimes better, than injection-molded plastic.
It only works with ABS, so those of you who print with PLA - this won't help you any. Sorry.
Here's a couple of prints my buddy made and did this to -
Seriously! He printed those on a RepRap! You'd never ever guess it - no visible layers AT ALL.
Here's a video demonstrating the technique - the video is kind of crappy, sorry - hah. I've personally tried it and it's AMAZING how well this works.
Here's a blog post that explains the steps better than the video -
I also did my own using the technique which can be seen here:
You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?But you're not entirely familiar with Flash? WELL FEAR NOT! Deviantart supplies A VAST AMOUNT OF TUTORIALS from people who know and have some fair amount of understanding of what to do.You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I'll help you get started by supplying some information and also recommending a couple very nice and informative tutorials about Flash. Plus don't be discouraged if you suck at drawing in Flash, I provided a fair amount of information for an alternative solution at the end!
What you need:
- Flash* (any kind of Flash where you can write Action Script 2.0... NOT Action Script 3.0, these tutorials cover AS 2.0)
*If you're wondering what kind of Flash I use, I'll tell you. I use a super old school Flash that does the job juuust fine. It's called Macromedia Flash MX, also known as "Flash 6.0 r25" Yuuuup, really old. I've had it since junior year in high school (approx. 5 years). I have Flash Professional CS5, and it looks pretty much the same as Flash 6, so don't worry.
