Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures by emnullfuenf May 23, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

Joy Division's iconic cover by Peter Saville representing PSR B1919+21 waveforms.

Update:
The model made it to London Science Museum! "3D: printing the future"

Update:
The model from the Processing sketch wasn't manifold and i currently saw no way to improve it. Thus i rewrote the sketch in order to produce DXF files and extruded them with OpenSCAD.

Details and Processing Sketch:

just add texture and 3dprint on full color 3d printer z510 )

Ditto for me about plunger fix. Huge difference. They're shipping with the fixed version these days I hear. I also think they're sending the replacements out for free (along with screws) if you ask nice enough.

how did you colored it?

Update:
The print should works now. Will test it next week.

I printed the thing with MakerWare with white PLA on Makerbot Replicator. MakerBot's Slicer results were defect. Skeinforge worked quite well. There are still errors in the print which i think are maybe Replicator's plunger's fault.

Wow! Your prints are looking great! Our Replicator got plunger and feeding problems again. I still didn't manage to print the updated model.

You should definitely print the extruder mod, it made a big difference in long (+12 hour prints), my feeding problems stopped completely. In the meantime, using a dab of canola oil can also be helpful: https://groups.google.com/d/ms...

Been waiting on someone to do this. This is definitely going on my wall next to the album.

Trying to upload the STL file to Shapeways, getting an error saying the object is to big. What are the dimensions/units?

emnullfuenf on May 29, 2013 said:

Just had the same problem. I uploaded a version that's 100mm long for Shapeways.
I wonder why they still don't support scaling.

The graphic was also used in "Alien" on the Nostromo's Bridge. One of the first vector graphics with obscuration.

I've been trying to print this model, but I am having trouble slicing the OBJ file. When I look at it in programs like Netfabb it appears to have a ton of errors and is not manifold. Netfabb can't repair it correctly. This also might be why you had so many errors in your slice/print.

Do you have the Processing sketch that you used to generate the OBJ file? Maybe that could be tweaked to produce a cleaner OBJ.

emnullfuenf on May 26, 2013 said:

So. There's a new model after a complete rewrite. This should work now. I'll try it next week.

emnullfuenf on May 25, 2013 said:

I am about to fix the errors. But i would appreciate if you would like to have a loot at the processing sketch, too:

Found via Tumblr. This is great! Joy Division aside, this a 'one to print!'
