Summer is almost here and so are our patriotic holidays...and with them come celebrating with food and family.
So MYNT3D wants to kick off the season with a couple foodie projects to whet your 3D pen appetite. And what better way than with some yummy desserts.
In this 3D printing pen tutorial we are going to introduce a new technique to achieve a more realistic look using our PETG translucent filaments.
• Filament colors from the Super 32 pack of ABS: red, white and blue
• Sticky tack
5. Trace and fill in the bottom piece of the popsicle template with white filament.
6. Draw the popsicle stick with PLA wood filament and attach to the bottom popsicle piece.
7. Attach the bottom piece to the popsicle front and back. Then fill in the sides with the appropriate stripe color.
Cheers for the Red White and Blue!
• Blue Filament from the Super 32 pack of ABS
• Clear Tape
1. For the cherry pie, layer wood filament over the curves of the pie crust temple.
2. Apply clear tape over the lattice template and carefully draw the top crust, going over and under with the weave.
3. To get a more realistic look for the cherry pie filling, layer blue ABS filament under translucent red PETG filament.
4. For added dimension, coil the PETG red filament for cherries in the filling.
5. Attach the filling sides to the top crust, being sure to cover any blue filament.
6. Draw the back piece of pie crust and attach.
7. Last, draw a thin line of wood filament on the sides for the bottom crust.
Wait!!! Pie is not complete without a dollop of whipped cream.
8. Trace the 2 circles on the template and fill in with white filament.
9. Position the smaller circle angled onto the larger circle using sticky tack, and connect.
10. Draw the pen up to create a pointed tip above the smaller circle.
11. Fill in with strokes that spiral around the creamy peek.
Now that’s a project your friends and family will drool over!
Did you know many restaurants use fake desserts for display purposes - and that those fake desserts cost hundreds of dollars!
If you you were ever considering making money on commissioned 3D pen art, fake food is a great idea! There are Mynters who already sell their 3D pen creations.
How cool is that?!
