Cute Kitty Paint Brush Rest - 3D Printed Custom Color Choices
Brush rest is designed by me personally, with additional 3D models from user ChaosCoreTech on Thingiverse for the kitty model, used under a Creative Commons License for commercial use.
All order for 3D printed items will be made to order. I do not have them pre-printed to save on storage space. I will print your order in the order in which it is received. I expect to be able to print your order within 24 hours of receiving it unless I receive many orders at once or large orders which take more than a day to print.
Each of my 3D printed items were designed by me in CAD software and rendered into 3D models to be printed. I print all of my 3D prints on my Ender 3 Pro 3D printer at home. I have several colors available in PLA filament so if you'd like a different color printed for your order, please let me know! My costs are based on time it takes to print an object / model and amount of PLA filament used for each job.
See below for more information about PLA plastics.
What is PLA, and what is it used for?
Polylactic Acid (PLA) is different than most thermoplastic polymers in that it is derived from renewable resources like corn starch or sugar cane. Most plastics, by contrast, are derived from the distillation and polymerization of nonrenewable petroleum reserves. Plastics that are derived from biomass (e.g. PLA) are known as “bioplastics.”
Polylactic Acid is biodegradable and has characteristics similar to polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), or polystyrene (PS). It can be produced from already existing manufacturing equipment (those designed and originally used for petrochemical industry plastics). This makes it relatively cost efficient to produce. Accordingly, PLA has the second largest production volume of any bioplastic (the most common typically cited as thermoplastic starch).
There are a vast array of applications for Polylactic Acid. Some of the most common uses include plastic films, bottles, and biodegradable medical devices (e.g. screws, pins, rods, and plates that are expected to biodegrade within 6-12 months). For more on medical device prototypes (both biodegradable and permanent) read here. PLA constricts under heat and is thereby suitable for use as a shrink wrap material. Additionally, the ease with which Polylactic Acid melts allows for some interesting applications in 3D printing (namely “lost PLA casting” - read more below). On the other hand, its low glass transition temperature makes many types of PLA (for example, plastic cups) unsuitable to hold hot liquid.
