Morgan 3D print gallery

Many of you may have wondered where the 3D print gallery for Morgan prints were. South Africans are inherently camera shy, and we should change this, for the better.

You spoke, and we listened.  We have hundreds of photos of the stuff we printed over the years… yet we failed to share most of it.  You know how it is.  You print something incredible, quickly snap it on a mobile phone, and let it go.  Here is an example:

I am working through all the photos, and will post some of the best ones in our new 3d print gallery in due course.  Our 3D machines are built to last.  Come and see what we are doing!

If you have suggestions of prints we should do for demo purposes, make contact, and we try to make it happen and add it to our 3d print gallery   We are always busy working on improvements to our processes, and this we will always share with our fans and customers.

We have registered ourselves on 3D hubs, and we kept our printing fees low in order to give you a chance to sample a Morgan today:

Customers, if you have great print you would like to share with us, make contact, and we will make sure you get a mention in the 3d print gallery for your skills!

Remember that we are running a Free 3D print promotion. Submit an idea or stl, and if you win, collect it at House4Hack!  While you are there, come and see all the crazy people that makes this legendary makerspace what it is.  I am available every Tuesday night at the club meet in Centurion.

How to get involved in 3D Printing

It is easy to get involved in the exciting world of 3D printing. The internet is full of free resources, training videos and interesting things to get you going. All you need to do is take that that first step and have an idea. Come to think of it,  you can even skip the idea part and print someone else’s ideas until you have the confidence to make your own ideas come to life.

 

COMPETITION – Get your 3D model printed for Free

Morgan 3D Printers want you to dip your toe into our world and experience the excitement of 3D printing. It is because of this that we are running a monthly competition, open to everyone, where one lucky person will have the opportunity to have their idea printed for free, every month.

This is how it works:

  • Save your idea (or someone else’s) in either a .stl or .obj file format
  • Send it to michael@morgan3dp.com with a JPEG of your model
  • On the last Monday of the month we will pick the winner and we will print the winner’s design on the last Tuesday of the month.
