    • ​Here's what I've been up to recently.

      So Rick and Morty April fooled us with a new episode. So excited! Anyway, there was a 'flashback' to Rick's past, where we saw an early version of his universe-hopping portal gun. I took a bit of time out of my day to sit down and make it!

      As usual, I've put the designs up on MyMiniFactory for free download, but not everyone has a 3D printer, so fully made versions are available on Etsy.

      But wait! There's more! I also put together a video detailing my full design process from sketches, to CAD, and iteration.

      Recently I set out on an adventure with the dogs to place 3D printed Pokestops all over my suburb. This is just a short little video of how it went.
      If you've got the time give me a subcribe, I plan on uploading more videos about my 3D printing work!

      On a more positive note, here's my most recent design the Pokestop at the Coffee Shop

      It's a Pokestop from Pokemon go, and the intent is that people can fabricate them and put them on their local pokestops. Its just a bit of fun, and another level bringing virtual reality into reality.

      I also understand that not everyone has a 3D printer, so it's also available on Etsy.

    • Sucker punch

      Jcach

      Well that was short lived. Yesterday my boss sat me down and told me that I'm not right for the position. :( I'd been working there a week.

      I guess I was too swept up in getting this job that I didn't take it seriously enough, but I also butted heads with my boss over 3D printing things (I fucking know this shit). I guess he also had a super high standard for what he expected, and in terms of sink or swim, I didn't swim fast enough.


      This has been a real punch in the stomach, and kind of gotten me down, but I'm using it as determination to prove my worth. I'm currently in the process of setting up my own design and 3D printing business, and I can use them as a contact if need be.


      As everyone has been telling me, when one door closes, another opens.

      Today I just got my dream job. I've focused my last six or so years towards a career in 3D Printing. I just really like doing it. I had no idea what the job would be, but I wanted to be the best of the best. So a few days ago the dream job popped up on Facebook, and today I got it.

      Absolute high of high, and rounded the night off with dinner and a movie with my girlfriend.


      I've just gotten home, it's 12:18 am.

      One week ago my grandma passed away. In the morning we will be having her funeral.


      This has been one hell of a week.

      She'd have been so proud of me.

    • Pokeball Aimer: Gameboy Edition

      Some of you might remember I made the Pokeball Aimer a month or so back. That turned out being really popular.

      I listened to feedback, and have developed the new and improved Pokeball Aimer: Gameboy Edition, designed to print faster, look better, and just overall be better. I'm pretty chuffed with it.


      Just like last time I've put it up for free download to those with 3D printers https://www.myminifactory.com/users/Jcach , and for those without I have an Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/462264408/pokeball...

    • Pokerus GO!

      1 year ago

      Jcach

      Who's been playing Pokemon Go? Just about everyone, right? I've been jogging every morning, going on trips to places, and catching up with friends to play Pokemon. As I've been going up levels I've been noticing it get harder, but hey that's normal game mechanics. Never the less, it was infuriating when I would throw ball after ball after ball, and miss. I wasn't this bad a few days ago. On the flip side, it's sadistically funny to see my brothers have the same problem, and means I'm not the only one.


      Anyway, Honors has been so hectic that I haven't been able to make any objects to 3D print. But I've been on break between semesters, so I took the opportunity to make a device that could improve my Pokeball aiming. I made a test model, discovered it actually helped, and two iterations later I had this final design.

      a81c66f9a40e058f580dabea7870bc968fb7a40d

      I uploaded it to three 3D printing design shairing websites: Thingiverse, Pinshape, and MyMiniFactory; and shared the links to some Facebook groups. The initial responses to it were pretty negative, which was shocking because I've never experienced the internet hatred directed at me (I screenshot my favourite ones though). But not all the comments were bad, the posts received a lot of likes, and my amazing girlfriend @heidisapirate was very supportive.


      Next morning I had a message form MyMiniFactory, saying they'd forwarded the design to someone at Gizmodo. The next thing I know, there are derivative news articles popping up everywhere, and my design is being seen all over the web. OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I THINK I'VE GONE VIRAL...


      So that's pretty crazy...


      Now my devices are full of notifications, and my brand new Etsy shop is doing crazy well. I'm also designing Pokeball Aimers to fit other phones, and boy are there a lot of requests.

      Over all I am shocked, excited, want to hide in bed, and tell everyone what's happened.

      Also, I couldn't possibly run the shop without the help of my lovely girlfriend. Shout out to her <3

      I got glasses a week ago, so I can see distance now. I also got a new 3D printer, it's damn fine. I should make journals about those some time... but that would be more procrastination.

      Check out these sites for some helpful tips for calibrating your printer some more.

      Checking the proper extruder steps.

      Working on the proper flow rate.

      These two links have helped me the most in getting my prints down to a really quick a high quality .1mm print.

      Also, make sure you keep the bearings and rods lubricated, including the Z axis threaded rod. I skipped that for a long time and kept getting strange artifacts until I covered it as well.

      • Jcach

        3 years ago

        I will definitely use these.
        I hadn't thought about lubricating the parts. Thanks for the heads up.

      I'm thinking about my own 3D printer. Probably going to build it myself. Unless you can recommend a decent prebuilt one that can be easily be sent to Australia.

      What are things I should look out for?
      Any tips?

      • Jcach

        3 years ago

        I don't think I can add any more than what Moeparker has said.
        Most sites will ship to Australia. There also people in Australia and Asia who can ship to you, which makes shipping considerably cheaper, plus some Australian companies will offer in person support (at last, they did for my school). I've lost the links to these, buy I'm sure Google will recommend them.

        One thing I didn't and couldn't consider was the digital interface, which turned out to be not user friendly. All I can say for this case is check their sites, how much support can you get from strangers online.

      Hey brother. Just read your comment... I transferred to a University with an excellent video game school. As it stands, I've prototyped three levels but currently lack the staff I started with earlier on. This translates into slooow development time without the extra hands. The goal is to pitch the game to a panel next semester where they will decide whether to make it a class project for a school year or so.

      I hit a lull in production when almost everyone on my team moved on beyond the college where we started from. But it's still very much alive. The trick is that I've had to stop dedicating time to other ventures like RT and FB and pretty much anything else cool for now.

      I'm still alive, just kinda got myself on lockdown

        I participated last year in the bare bones comp. Thats just competing as individuals with our own car and poster, but there was no competition further than that for us.
        But my school's team got into the finals for Canberra. Pretty impressive given we spent less than a third than the winning teams.

      GUI is a graphical user interface, so rather than coding everything in DOS, you have something pretty to look at. BlueJay and Netbeans are programs, you were right. BlueJay is just less functional and shitty.

      Java isnt so hard. There are different GUI's for it and BlueJay gave me some trouble. It's in the Java 1 course and it is so limited that it seemed so useless and therefore difficult for me. NetBeans is the one im currently using, and it is so much better and user friendly. But the Java language it self, is pretty simple and probably the best one to do first. Out of the ones ive done anyway :P
