What's on your workbench today?

This is a great project! I’ve been mulling over the possibility of a low-profile-spherical (LPS) set.

What do you print these on? Or are these molds?

Is it just me, or is each column a different size?

Thank you, maybe I should create a separate post for in-depth discussion?

I printed these with my Elegoo Mars. I’ve also done a test printing a mold and filling it up with Play-Doh, worked fine, too :smiley:

Good eye! They are not all different, but some are. I’ve jotted down some notes in the image.

Near-cylindricals look most comfortable to me.

My preference is for the green. More touch area. I am not an accurate typist.

Thank you all for your feedback, it is much appreciated.

I’ll spend some time and prepare documentation regarding visualization and terminology. I imagine it to represent the row profile, side profiles, and touch area. And as already mentioned print a second batch with a sculpted row profile. With that done I’ll start a dedicated thread for discussion, suggestions, and feedback.

After you removed the rust, did you sand and prime? or did you go straight to painting? It looks good!

Excited to see your documentation and furthur information in the upcoming thread! :slight_smile:

I sanded the areas with rust and only coated with a primer which happened to have the desired colour

Yeah I gotta agree, I’d say I would take pretty much any cylindrical option over any spherical option anymore

Yes, I wholeheartedly agree. Cylindrical sets are very comfy and mostly outdo the spherical offerings in that regard. However, I find what they make up in comfort they lack in the variation of styles/aesthetics. I’ve seen enough rounded rectangles with a straight extrusion profile to last me a lifetime. I strongly believe there is room for variation and experimentation. That is why I’m looking into this – there is so much to learn and explore.

Please feel free to share your experiences.

Thank you and have a great weekend.

Pulled apart a Tacit. V2 for some macros.

Well that there has my attention. Perhaps a competitor to the venerable Boba U4?

Tacits have been around for a while. I think if I remember right the pre-date Alpacas, which have the same dampening set up.

Only issue is that I think they are exclusive to an EU vendor. One of the reasons I never jumped on trying them :persevere:

I did note that the only source seemed to be European based. I didn’t realize they’d been around a while.
