About Project

Imagine bringing vibrant biology lessons to life with stunning, multi-colored 3D printed models! At FacFox, we're excited to showcase the possibilities of FDM 3D printing with Bambu Lab's incredible four-color capabilities.

We recently created a set of realistic mandrill head sculptures, perfect for teaching aids in biology classrooms. Take a look at these magnificent primates:

• Male Mandrills: These impressive sculptures boast the characteristic bright yellow and blue coloring of male mandrills. Their vivid blue cheeks stand out, contrasting with the red ridges running down their elongated muzzles. Detailed white whiskers frame their dark lips, and a touch of yellow adds a realistic beard.

• Manny Mandrills: We've also included two “Manny” mandrills, featuring a striking black and white fur pattern.

These detailed models are sure to capture students' attention and spark their curiosity about the animal kingdom.

Beyond Biology: FacFox's multi-color 3D printing service isn't limited to biology lessons! We also printed a detailed map, showcasing the power of this technology to create engaging learning aids for geography and other subjects.

Bambu Lab's innovative 3D printing technology takes FDM printing to a whole new level. The ability to utilize four colors simultaneously allows for incredibly realistic and visually stimulating models, perfect for educational settings.

At FacFox, we're passionate about using cutting-edge technology to enhance learning experiences. Our multi-color 3D printing service allows you to create unique and engaging teaching aids that will leave a lasting impression on your students.

Solution

  • Step 1: The 3D models of the mandrill heads were downloaded from the Internet. The intricate details, such as the brightly colored features, elongated muzzles with red ridges, and white whiskers, were carefully incorporated into the design.
  • Step 2: The models were then processed by slicing software, which converted the designs into a series of thin layers and generated the necessary G-code for printing.
  • Step 3: The G-code was sent to the Bambu Lab 3D printer, which utilized its four-color printing capability. The printer’s extruder was heated, and thermoplastic filament was fed through it.
  • Step 4: The printer laid down the filament layer by layer, starting from the base of the mandrill heads. The colors were switched accordingly to match the design specifications, creating the vibrant blue cheeks, red muzzles, and yellow beards.
  • Step 5: Where necessary, support structures were printed alongside the models to maintain the integrity of overhanging features and complex shapes.
  • Step 6: As each layer was deposited, it was allowed to cool and solidify before the next layer was applied on top, ensuring proper adhesion and shape accuracy.
  • Step 7: Upon completion of the printing process, the mandrill head sculptures were carefully removed from the print bed.
  • Step 8: Any support material was removed, and the models were cleaned up to refine the details and surfaces. This may have included sanding, trimming, or painting for finishing touches.
  • Step 9: The finished mandrill head sculptures were inspected for quality, ensuring that the colors were correctly applied, and the details matched the original design.
  • Step 10: The completed models were then utilized for educational purposes in a biology class, providing a tactile learning tool for students.
