Me and my friend started at 3pm on a friday, and made the fishing touches near 1 am the next day. Afterwards, we went over to our local RC plane friendly park and took it for a spin. The landing gear was a separate addition later on to protect the go pro case lens.
I would like to thanks LulzBot for their outstanding open source nature and involvement in the 3D printing community. Recently, they held a contest to win 5 spools of filament of your choice, and they selected me as a winner. I can not wait to get printing. Here is a link to the contest on reddit
Here was my response to the contest:
"Hey, I would really love to participate in this contest and win some 3mm blue ABS. I am the president and creator of the 3D printing club at my highschool and work with my fellow students all the time with projects that need 3d printed parts. I also reycle all of my failed prints and print recycled ABS everyday. I do this with a Filastruder and an industrial polymer granulator. You can follow my progress at my blog (ggalisky.weebly dot com). I cant directly link to my blog since reddit blocks weebly links. I am also currently working on a delta printer build and also have an Ultimaker 2 which I use to make money from 3D hubs. It would be really great to obtain some more filament to help me keep printing and working on my many projects! In addtion to my personal projects I keep a 4.14 GPA and am working on my Eagle scout project for Boy Scouts of America. My project is to build a 3D printer for my local middle school, and I am very excited. Thank you for taking the time to review my submission!"
Recently in my AP art history course, we had a project that revolved around creating a work of art or scale architecture that reflected Christian art. Since I saw an opportunity to use my 3D printer for a school project, I immediately asked my instructor if I could 3D print the old St. Peters burg basilica, and soon after I designed a model of the building from pictures on Google. I did this with Autodesk Inventor 2014.(I know I need to update to 2016, but I have not gotten around to it) All Autodesk software is free to students, so if you are a student and interested in their software, go check it out. One of the requirements of the project was to have a cut away view so the viewer could see what it looked like on the inside. In order to accommodate that requirement, I cut the model up into 4 parts, and this also helped with fitting the model on the build plate, since at the time I was still using my Solidoodle 2. Afterwards, I showed a power-point going over the steps of modeling the building. The quality on these parts was not nearly as professional Ultimaker could have pulled them off, but I did not have the Ultimaker at that time. My instructor really liked the final product and deiced to display it in one of our display cabinets.
