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.

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.

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

<p>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/msg/makerbot/Wn-MKC1Ybm0/m3JIu7yfeQIJ&lt;/p&gt;

<p>Interesting background on the scientific origins of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures cover, previous publications and their copyright status http://adamcap.com/2011/05/19/history-of-joy-division-unknown-pleasures-album-art/&lt;/p&gt;

<p>Amazing! I want this NOW!</p>

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

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

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

<p>Thanks for scaling the model, saved me some work.</p>

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

<p>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.</p>

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

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

<p>I am about to fix the errors. But i would appreciate if you would like to have a loot at the processing sketch, too:<br>http://i.document.m05.de/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Unknown_Pleasures_Extrusion.zip&lt;/p&gt;

<p>Sorry I didn't see your reply until now. I will try to look at the code when I can. I know Java well, but I haven't used Processing before.</p>

<p>I already found another solution. Now i am exporting normalized SVG curves in Processing to DXF and extrude them in OpenSCAD.</p>

<p>The problem with the Processing solution is the different number of vertices of the sides and the outer wall. I am using Geomerative's polygonizer for the flat sides and the SVG's points for the outer wall.</p>

<p>Richard already sent me some hints. But as long as there's a working model now it's ok.</p>

<p>The model slices nicely now in Slic3r. I just need to get back home to my printer to print it. Thanks!</p>

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

<p>Awesome.</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>
