Let’s explore 3D printed close-ups

The images here are taking with a Canon 6D and an cheap adapter to reverse the lens. Add some smooth light to that and you can take your own 3D printed close-ups!

The whole purpose here is to show of the cool and sometime weird details that appear on a macro level of our beloved 3D-prints. These 3D printed close-ups are all taking on regular, easy to access 3D Printers.

I find it fascinating looking how some materials behave up close when 3D Printed. Look at the CopperFill for example, that’s a pretty neat structure that even shows the metallic particles in the 3D printed lines.

It’s also interesting to see how SLA 3D Printing in the Formlabs Form1+ still show lines, although they are tiny. Read more about how I used the Formlabs Form1+ here.

CarbonFiber PET-G is also very packed with fiber that makes it look very strange compared to other materials. Interesting!
