Description

Filament Purge/Poop Shadow Box

UPDATE 1 : New faceplates added (Butterfly, Mushroom, Dolphins, Palm Tree, Peacock, Mouse Ears, Weiner Dog)

UPDATE 2 :

  • New faceplates added (Dragon Ball Z, Motorcycle, Cat, Ghost, Magic Lamp, Ice Cream, Mandalorian)
  • Fusion 360 Design file, Print Profiles and RAW Files have all been modified to include a lip at the bottom of the box to help hold the faceplate and window. The Window_Thickness was not references in the sketch, it is now fixed and changing this parameter will modify the design.

 

 

We all know multi-color printing with the Bambu printers produces a lot of waste, mostly in the form of filament poop. My design doesn't help reduce the waste produced but it does help with giving it a purpose. This shadow box with customizable size and face plates is a great way to display the colorful waste in a fun manner. It can be a great way to add a pop of color to your living room, your office or even your kid's room.

 

For this design, you will need to purchase some small acrylic sheets such as these ones from Amazon CA or Amazon US. Do not worry if you can't find these exact ones, as I have also included the Fusion 360 design file that is parametrized for you to customize the shadow box for yourself.

 

As of right now, the face plates available in the print profile and RAW files are the following :

*Note that I will be taking requests for face plates of the provided dimensions, but you can also customize one in your slicer or in Fusion 360

  • Vertical Blank
  • Vertical Bambu Logo
  • Vertical Brick man
  • Vertical Sunflower
  • Horizontal Blank
  • Horizontal Excavator
  • Horizontal Golden Ratio
  • Horizontal Star Wars
  • Horizontal Brick Logo

Assembly instructions :

  1. Slide the acrylic sheet and the face plate into the grove at the front of the box. I suggest having the face plate be the outermost item, that way you will be able to easily change it without making a mess
  2. Add in the filament poop using the optional feeder funnel
  3. Slide the cover on and you're done, it is an intentional tight fit so nothing comes out.
    1. An optional looser cover is provided in both of the boxes print profiles
    2. For a 100% secure cover, use a bit of glue

 

How to make a custom face plate in the slicer :

  1. Right-Click on the blank face plate of your choice
  2. Click on ‘’add negative part'' then select the ‘’load'' option
  3. Select your intended file, scale it up or down and place it where you want it to be
  4. When you slice the file, it should then cut out the loaded file from the blank face plate

 

How to modify the Fusion 360 design file

Here are the parameters that you can change in the Fusion 360 file :

  • Tolerance is used around the sliding cover and between the face plate/acrylic sheet and the walls of the shadow box. It is currently set as 0,2 mm and it worked perfectly for me.
  • Window_Thickness is for the thickness of the acrylic sheet. This will not affect the thickness of the face plate (1 mm)
  • Window_Horizontal is for the horizontal measurement of the acrylic sheet and face plate. Add the exact value without tolerance in mind.
  • Window_Vertical is for the vertical measurement of the acrylic sheet and face plate. Add the exact value without tolerance in mind.
  • Box_Depth is to adjust the depth of the shadow box as in making it more slim or thicker. This is the total outside measurement, I don't recommend you go under 30mm.

To change these parameters, you will need to :

  1. in the ‘’Solid'' menu, expand the ‘’modify'' tab and select ‘’Change Parameters''
  2. You will then have this new window open up, simply change the parameter of your choice in the ‘’Expression'' column

Love it, came out perfect. I used an extra large trading card holder (for the really big Pokemon cards) and cut it out for the plastic to hold the poop in. I had a massive amount of poop from my last design I made that looked really cool and I felt was perfect for this. I did find that I needed to trim the ends of the poop off in order for my poop to really sink into the box without getting stuck.

It looks great! Do you mean that the opening was a tad too small to let the poop in? That may be because the X1/P1 poop is different from the A1 ones. I designed it with A1 poop in mind and during testing I did not have that problem. Editing the file in Fusion 360 and adding to the ''Box_Depth'' would be a great solution for your next time using the shadow box.

Replying to @CDoucet :
I think the p1 poop was just too stringy. I didn’t have any problem getting it into the box but it looked too loose for my liking, trimming the ends off allowed it to form a tighter, nicer overall looking presentation. deeper box might help slightly but I think it was more a stringy poop vs formed poop issue if you know what I mean. 😅

I totally get it, and I kind of hate that we are talking about poop like this 😅

Printed ok, had some adhesion problems and under-extrusion, but that's probably 99% on my end. I've used the parametric Fusion 360 file (thanks!) to create a custom size (initially for a 200 x 250 mm picture frame so I could use the glass) and tried a lenticular style method to create the Stephen King's IT styled insert. 😁 The bars hold the filament poop, create the image by adjusting their width and I didn't even needed the glass.
