5 Mistakes to Avoid When Designing a 3D Model for 3D Printing

Image
We know that modeling for 3D printing can be confusing: in 3D modeling, as in 3D printing, there is no one size fits all approach. We all use different software, print in different materials, and not only use different printers but also different printing technologies. So it’s perfectly normal to feel lost and it can sometimes seem difficult to design a perfect 3D model for 3D printing. That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate list of mistakes to avoid when turning a 3D model into a 3D print. 1. Ignoring Material Guidelines Each and every printing material is different. Materials can be brittle or strong, flexible or solid, smooth or rough, heavy or light, and so on. This also means that an object should ideally be designed for a specific material. For example, if you know that you want to print your 3D model in Ceramics, there will be specific material-related design recommendations that you need to take into account such as supporting overhanging parts, strengthening elements th…

What If All The Conspiracy Theories Are True?

Image
What if Macbeth was not really written by William Shakespeare, and a group of people has been suppressing this truth for hundreds of years?  What if the moon landing were a hoax created by network executives to boost television ratings?  What if an alien spacecraft really did crash in Roswell, New Mexico in the 1940s and the government has hidden the evidence all these years?  For that matter, what if all the conspiracy theories are true? The word conspiracy could be defined as “a secret agreement between or among multiple parties that exists to conduct unlawful behavior.”  Do some conspiracies exist?  Of course.  Conspiracies have existed at many levels of society over the years.  Both Old and New Testaments speak of conspiracies, and several popes have written about conspiracies in official documents.  For instance, in 1937’s Divini Redemptoris, Pope Pius XI wrote about a “conspiracy of silence” regarding communism.  In 1995’s Evangelium Vitae, Pope Saint John Paul II wrote about…

It's an opportunity to take your expertise and share it with others, as well as an opportunity to increase traffic to both parties’ blogs Guest blogging is also a great way to establish yourself as an authority figure within your market and build relationships with other bloggers and experts within your field.

It’s Finally Time To Call Bullshit On Emo’s Problem With Women

Image
Like many people whose adolescence spanned the 2000s, I was a teenage emo. My first concert was My Chemical Romance, my field of vision was regularly obscured by a swoopy fringe, and my notebooks were filled with lyrics by the likes of Bright Eyes, Dashboard Confessional and Fall Out Boy. As an emotional young person experiencing depression, those bands were a lifeline. http://blackthornonline.com They spoke with candour about topics that seemed to mimic my experiences, and displayed vulnerability around feelings that I wasn’t used to seeing reflected in pop culture. They got me through a lot. The Future Of Australian Music Doesn't Have To Be Straight And Male In adulthood, however, it’s difficult for me to listen to many of those bands. For all its sensitivity, a lot of the emo music that was popular throughout the mid-2000s embraced a pretty nauseating depiction of women. There is something particularly sobering about realising that many of the songs you loved as a young pe…
