3D Printing - "It's all about design and quality output. Not how fast the printer can run."

Project Gallery

The Project Gallery is a sample collection of printed objects made during the first few months of 3D printer ownership. This is far from the complete range and number of what has been produced. Many articles have been repeatedly made many times. Over 100 printed key fobs of many styles have been made and given away.

Many of the items are made from files obtained from the Internet. They will be easily recognized by other folks doing 3D printing. Others are custom designs, imagined, drawn, and printed for special applications. They will be pointed out as RD Design

They are shown in no particular order. White was the first filament color in use, so take that as a hint...

The Gallery will expand with more pictures. Especially for the generic open source files that will always be a part of what is printed here in RD's 3D Print Design Studio. No reason to re-invent what already meets a need.
