3D Printed Fried Eggs via @BlitzCityDIY #3DPrinting #Fusion360

Liz has been cooking up some new ideas, and in her latest dish, she cracks open Fusion 360 to whip up some yokes and egg whites. This delicious idea makes for a well-adhered print that gives folks the opportunity to try hot swapping filaments to get multi-flavor, ugh, multi-colored parts. Ya’ll can get the recipe(STLs) for your 3D printers from Thingiverse. Be sure to watch the video on a full stomach or ya might find yourself feeling hungry.🍳

Creating a Terminator Skull Using the Lost PLA Casting Process #SciFiSunday

On AndysMachines, Andy creates an amazing Terminator skull starting off by fabricating most of the parts using lost PLA casting. This is when you 3D print models of parts, create a mold around them, and then heat up the mold to melt away the PLA plastic inside so that it’s ready for a metal pour (in this cast aluminum).

As Andy points out, it’s not a tremendously precise process and there was a lot of post-processing, but it definitely saves time over having to hammer sheet stock and machine all of the skull pieces.
