Multiple things going on…

First off, “Artifact” is nearly completed. The main structure is done and the base/stand is built but still needs painting and final finish.

The Printer…

Second, I’m now a proud owner of a 3D printer. I got Creality’s Ender 3 Pro. The test print and 1st practice print (downloaded from Thingiverse) came out well, but my third print which was designed in Fusion 360, failed because of support settings when I prepped the gcode.

I’m going to need more practice with prints, but the idea is to make a 2′ x 4′ MPCNC which will ease the time used to make my frames. Also, I’m going to do small sculptures in Fusion 360 and offer to do 3D prints for the neighborhood (for a fee!)

Third… My next piece is also being worked on. Moving away from canvas for a bit to do something else (still mixed media, though…). A tease: Cardboard, Tissue, Copper gilding, & Paint.

The test print after calibration… yes, it’s a dog.
2nd Print – Octopus from Thingiverse

So, basically, I’m keeping busy…
