Dude, you should re-post this with the ‘here is the inside’ picture featured as the main picture. Thing is fucking sweet! on 18 Feb 2024 03:10 collapse

Haha thanks. I debated on which picture to use, I settled on this one mainly because I was so impressed with the UV print quality, though LEDs are great for those sweet, sweet internet points. on 18 Feb 2024 03:25 next collapse

What does UV printed refer to?

I’m not in the 3d printing yet, that looks awesome. on 18 Feb 2024 03:31 collapse

UV printing is a way to print designs on plastic and other materials (special ink is applied to the surface and cured with UV light). This shell was definitely injection modeled, not 3D printed. I’m pretty sure the shell itself is this one. on 18 Feb 2024 05:41 next collapse

Okay, thanks. Looks awesome on 18 Feb 2024 06:21 next collapse

Here’s a pretty good video on it (recommend setting it to 1.25x speed) on 18 Feb 2024 06:22 collapse

Here is an alternative Piped link(s):

So it’s more like “UV cured” rather than “UV printed”. on 18 Feb 2024 18:18 collapse

No, UV printed is still the correct term. For 3D printing, “resin printed” is the more common term. on 18 Feb 2024 11:51 collapse

Just might have to find where to get one of these.
