Default SLA grown Star Trek ear receiver

From a CAD file I drew. SLA grown.

The mold. Shooting the resin in from the bottom works the bubbles upwards rather than a splashy pour from the top. I suggest you try it.


I like this color. Reminds me of the interior of the old Aurora Spindrift.


Psychadelic!


...and squishy! A rubberlike resin.


Finished and alongside a ST3 version. A conventional earbud cover fits on the end.

Cool - thanks for posting; especially like the photo of the mold and technique.
It looks as if there is a very slight pebble finish to the original SLA part.

If you are seeing that in the finished piece then you are seeing it in the silver paint. I'm still trying to find a silver that will lay flat and not turn gray when you clear coat it. Krylon did that and they reformulated.
