I had an idea for something I wanted to explore - and pinshape here is listed on my local library as the “place to come get info”…sooo…I had a few questions to help guide me on where to start for my first print Any help appreciated…
So I wanted to do something simple…an ice cube tray (maybe a bit different but…basically an ice cube tray).
The library has access to 2 ultimakers, 3 and 2…something.
So my questions are -
A) what would you recommend as a program to persue and or make it in? Seems to be sketchup, or fusion 360 but I wanted a good…and or easy one ^.^
b) Probably not with those ones themselves, but is there a 3d printer, or system to print silicone?
c) What materials should I look into, or how would I go about making a working (and safe/sanitary) ice cube tray?
d) …just because i’m curious…can you put an edge (Without sanding) on a 3d printed model, or make it sharp. I’ve always been kinda curious o.0
e) if c) doesn’t work out, and no printed materials are freezer friendly, would printing a negative (Reverse) of the mold, and doing it in silicone work? (Despite more costs).
Any other info, or stuff to look into you can think of would be greatly appreciated.
