Specimen container (3d print) by darth-biomech Specimen container (3d print) by darth-biomech
My first fully finished 3d thing! Some sci-fi container for storage of various dangerous things or liquids. Coin is 2.5 cm across, entire container is 11 cm in height. Technically, meant to be 1:3 scale, but no clear indication of true scale leaves lot of room to interpretations. Printed on a Ultimaker2 printer.

Great looks!

How was the clear part in the middle made? I asume the LED was placed once you got the piece?

Well, glass is just a plastic jar of toothpicks without the toothpicks X)

Nice use! I was dead sure it would be something ordinary stuff like that. I suspect you planned to use the toothpickjar as the container itself?

I actually just noticed it when I had idea "I want to make some sort of sci-fi container thingy" and started to look around fro what could be used as a glass part.

looks like the print went great. though i do see some rough spots on your fillets that lead up to the glass on the container, to me it looks like that side was face down when printing. ( correct me if i'm wrong on that) so to help have less rough patches on your next prints, fiddle with your printer settings and print some small complex objects, that way you don't waist much filament. and just tinker with it till your prints come out cleaner, and using scaffolding is great.

Otherwise, job well done sir! specially for a first fully finished 3D printed project. Also smart move on the ABS, this should live longer than you providing its treated well. its one of the reasons i love 3D Printing :D you get to leave something behind for future generations to enjoy!

Thanks) Yes, those sides were printed one side down, It occured to me only after the print was done that I could just cut it in half and print both parts without overhangs... >_<

ABS plastic. Some people print from SLA, but it degrades in a year or two.

ABS plastic okay I am bit... well no if there is a loop I am so far from it, that it may as well not exist for me.

Well, the main difference between them is that most of stuff around you is made from ABS plastic, and PLA is made out of corn something, and it is stronger. But it is brittle and degrades over the time.
