Hey,

your disigns are really beautiful !

if by chance you have a fir tree, I'll take it ! :)

thank's

Hello Ruffy !
The image you import into picsvg.com must already be made of vertical lines on a white background, picsvg.com does not have this option to add these lines ...
Sorry, but I don’t know the technique used to get these vertical lines from a face, I found the image on pinterest.com.

Friendship,
oasisk

thanks OASISK - Eckhard is speaking talking about "convert picture to "Face 2" and/or Face 3"

in https://picsvg.com/fr/ I tried all Filters with Détails "Bon/ Fort" - but never reached a result like your "Face 2".
"Face 2" is made of vertical black an white lines - I always have the contour of a face

Did you use Filter "Invert #2" ?
The Input picture - was it Black & White (2 Colors) or GreyScale?
any other hints from your side?

thanks so much for your support
kind regards - Eckhard

How to convert images for 3D printing

The first step is to convert the black & white image (jpg, png, gif, etc.) into a vector image.

This is done by converting the image to Scalable Vector Graphics (Svg). The advantage of the SVG format is that you can then change the size of the image without any loss of quality because the image is no longer composed of pixels but of vectors.

The site that I use for this conversion and which produces excellent results is:
https://picsvg.com/fr/
(the default filter will replace a black area with a white area just surrounded by a black line. The last filter in the list is more accurate: a black zone will remain a black zone).

Finally, load this SVG file into your 3D software (or a dedicated site, I use tinkercad) to shape it as you like.

Hello OASISK - may I ask which SW you used to convert picture to "Face 2" and/or Face 3"? Background: I like to print Loudspeare Grils from Face-Photos - thanks in advance - Eckhard

Super hydro ! Je vis dans la commune de Plourin-les-Morlaix, 29600

Et je peux savoir ou en Bretagne? moi je suis de Lanester; c'est mieux de discuter en français...

Hello hydro
I am French, born and living in Brittany

Hello, yes I looked in CURA and everything is ok, I am still looking: Can I ask you a question? where are you from?

Hello hydro : you can look at the printer's parameters in your slicer

Hello, I do not question you, I am sure that your program is ok and even CURA accepts it .... I just wanted a direction from you to take to be able to print your great programs correctly ... I do not not know the status of the printer when it is not working. I know it doesn't do a "0" before it starts printing your files ...
Thank you very much for your help and and I will be looking again ...

When the printing fails, what are your printer settings?

I’m sorry for you, hydro, but my STL file is correct, it has been downloaded 127 times without any notice as yours. I just downloaded it myself to control it, it appears well in my slicer (cura) ... so it’s your printer that has a problem.

yes I printed other objects from other designers than you and it worked well. Yours, when I start them the head rises but very very slowly and it does not start; I have several times failed to "redo a zero" of the head but nothing helps .... after 10 minutes and 3 to 4% of the work; so I suspend the printing .... Where can it come from please? I did some research on the net but nothing ...
Thank you

Have you ever successfully printed other creations?

hello, I have printed your "super triskel" which is very beautiful ... the only problem is that nothing prints, it does not work. I have an ET5 X ANET, and I am a beginner. What should I do ?
Thank you so much.

Bonjour, j'ai reproduit votre lézard 🦎, il est parfait 👌 je l'ai fait en orange PLA esun.
Aucun souci. J'adore. Merci de votre gracieux partage 😉.

Thank you for your quick response and the addition of the unique module!
Indeed, ideamaker is very efficient to automatically separate the different elements composing the object! From now on, I will use it for this ...
Congratulations again for your creation, your Shuriken module is beautiful and in addition super solid: I did not have any break during my many manipulations!

as requested i added one module for you to download, let me tell you it is possible to use some slicers (ideamaker works great for that) for auto ungrouping then deleting pieces you do not need and saving (exporting that model) so you can use that file again

you also asked me if you have to turn upside down the shuriken modules to be decoupled, well it is the best and easiest way to do it like that but you dont have to... you can pull it slowly from the side flexing the arms...

Hello oasisk - thanks so much for your quick and detailled response. Converting to SVG is the trick :-)
