3D Printing

Recommended Posts

I know that this is kind of a niche hobby and there might only be a couple of us on the whole forum that dabble here, but I just got my first home printer after working with them for months at work. I figured it would be cool to have a topic on here to share projects, single prints, or just cool videos on the power and flexibility of this technology. I am running an Ender 3 V2 from Creality, and currently it is just stock but plan to do upgrades in the future.

Here is a fun video that shows how deep you can go into the hobby. A (almost) fully 3D printed mechanical clock! The main spring only gives about 15 minutes of use, but is amazing what was designed and engineered here.

Some of my first prints. I designed the ball mark repair tools in fusion 360 by hand. They are kind of flimsy but should work. I can always adjust the design accordingly.

Can you make a guy/gal to mow my lawn so I can go out and play golf? And mix a good gin & tonic when I come home?

  • iacas changed the title to 3D Printing

I designed a hinge for my new cart cover and had my brother print / make them.
I did the design / drawing in 2D and he converted it. 

It was a simple item which has worked well over the years.
I then sent photos to the manufacture showing them the new hinge.
My design allow the door to pivot out, while the original fixed position hinge snapped when a gust of wind opened the door too forcefully. I also designed a couple of custom ball markers and had them printed.
Fun stuff to be creative and build useful objects.

I actually told my wife last night that I was thinking of getting a 3d printer to play around with. I have done no research on them to date though. I would be totally new to it.

It's pretty fun, but there is loads to learn. If you are any kind of mechanically inclined, I'd say go for it, and the Creality Ender 3 would be my choice. It comes partially assembled, but you have to install everything on the X and Z axes. With a bit of fine tuning and a healthy does of reading on the web, you'd be just fine. The Ender 3 is sometimes as cheap as 160 dollars, which is a blistering deal, but normally sits around 200, so you can tell your wife that it is way cheaper than a new driver 😉

    • Most of my rounds are at 4,200 ft, at sea level that 3W is probably 15ish yards shorter.  I’m not as long as it sounds, unfortunately.  I would utilize the 3W on more than just 14 tee shots (2nd shot on par 5s, choke down for some 190-230 shots, hit some low punch shots). I’m certainly not saying you’re thinking about anything wrong (as far as your game and selection), I was hung up on the “terrible option” comment.  I really like my driver and hybrid as well, if this were a 6 club challenge I’d swap out the 3W for the driver and hybrid all day.  But alas, we only get 5 clubs.
    • The handicap season is over. You should have told him you can warm your balls with whatever you want 😜
    • On my home course I’d take driver, 3-hybrid, 7-iron, SW, and putter. Driver is debatable, because I only hit it 3-4 times per round, so I could probably bring a 3W and drop 3-hybrid and rearrange the irons/wedges (3W, 5-iron, 8-iron, SW, putter). But driver gives me the best chance to score well on the par-5 holes (longest is 505 yards), and I wouldn’t want to give that up, since these holes are where I make birdie most often. 
    • Say a prayer for our state: From M-Live: Michigan reported 15,385 new COVID-19 cases, about 7,693 a day, and 351 deaths on Tuesday, Dec. 7 and Wednesday, Dec. 8. Over the last seven days, Michigan reported an average of 7,203 new, reported cases and 108 new deaths. These are up from 5,980 new cases per day and 71 deaths a week ago. State data, last updated Friday, Dec. 3, shows 65.8% of residents 12 and older have received at least a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The state is now seeing the greatest number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since the start of the pandemic. Previous highs were set in the spring of 2020.
    • Day 130: Cold and drizzly outside so continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel to keep club from going too much inside, and also working on transition move. Transition feels good in slow rehearsal, and okay striking balls at slow speed, but hasn’t translated to 100% speed well yet.
