Good evening everyone,
I posted this originally in the user gallery - however it was suggested that I re-post here as the project involves smoothing HIPS.
My name is Dave and I am based in Bristol, South West UK.
I took delivery of a TAZ 5 about a week ago and have been having big fun getting used to it. It is my first every printer
and therefore experience with 3D printing.
I thought the equipment was amazingly well packaged and shipped and have done an out of the box video and first test print.
My first non test print was a Chinese Cellular Vase by the amazing designer Dizingof. I printed the vase 12cm high which took
about 12 hours using the Cura fine config using HIPS. I then built a forced air vapour polisher to improve the finish before
finally spraying with a pewter effect paint.
It’s my first output but I was quite pleased and very impressed with the printer & software !

I have also posted some images showing my DIY vapour polisher.
Hope you like, comments most welcome for a Newbie
