PC Nerding


Another useless post, another useless skill in my book. It’s a cool thing to toy around, but has no real world value in my life or job. Last year I tried my luck with DeepFaceLab, but it took hours to train and make a couple minutes video. Now this is made with SimSwap which which is leagues behind quality wise but it’s super fast and really simple to use for a machine learning noob like me.

3D Printing Nerding

3D Print Lithophane Keychains

Useless intro nobody cares about, only made to troll professional kitchen bloggers who write random useless life stuff for SEO purposes, while also improving my site SEO standing:

If you have read my last two posts, you know how much I love 3D printing custom stuff and how much I love trolling people who expect freebies. My newest creation involves a little lithophane keychain, with a photo of Mussolini and Hitler. For unaware people I’m Italian and fascism and nazism are sore points here, to the point it’s considered offensive for some people and going around displaying this kind of stuff is a sure way to get into fights. I’m an huge asshole and I love being it with entitled professionally offended people: you wanted some freebie, you get one you can’t possibly use.

Obliviously you don’t have to be an asshole 100% of the time, friends will love simple cool stuff like this and with Valentine’s Day coming up next Sunday it’s also great present for the loved ones.

Step One Lithophane creation

On this day I will show you the simple settings needed to make such a keychain, with a screenshot like the last time. This time we are using this generator from the same author.

On this page remember to select Framed Keychain Hole Top Left and make it small, my example is 40×35mm, big enough to actually show a picture but small enough to not be cumbersome.

Step Two: 3D Printing

Like for the lithophane Christmas decoration , make sure you print solid. You want:
Good Layer Height: I used 0.2mm in this example for faster printing, I recommend 0.12mm for better quality.
Bottom Layers and infill: set to 999999 and 100%, respectively.
Build plate adhesion: (not shown in the pic) use a brim, you don’t need an huge one if you print along the Y axis. I used 6mm.

Final Step: add a keychain ring

Simple as it is, the print comes with a hole where you can put a keychain ring. Most local and online hardware store will have different sizes in stock, you can find a 50 rings pack for less than 3€/£3/$3.

Trolling people with my 3D printer

Little warning: this post is NSFW and offer no useful information.

You know what? I hate always serious people, the ones that never ever have fun. When people ask why do I own a 3D print I usually reply with “to print dicks“, most people think I’m making a bad joke, some raise eyebrows, one Karen straight up insulted me for my immaturity. Most of these people usually follow up with the request “you should print me something!” and get extra offended when I have the arrogance to ask for money, like 2-5€, for material and electricity.

In one particular occasion before last Christmas I started trolling a friend and told him I’m a Custom Sex Toy Designer, I told him I could print a small dick with his name on it. I was so amused with this result and printed a bunch of them for many friends and colleagues.

Everybody loves those!

I rolled with this kind trolling until it got too big to quit and some people asked “so, what kind of custom do you create?” and I really didn’t have an answer. I had to deliver a product, something that looked professional.
Amazon gave me an idea when I saw a good offer for blue glow in the dark PLA, but a glow in the dark penis is nothing more than a regular one.

The real idea came when I heard a colleague talking about how much he loves Napoli’s football team, he wanted a tattoo with the team logo, I had a much better idea: A butt plug with that logo on the flared end.

A couple minutes on Inkscape to draw a realistic profile, some more minutes on OpenSCAD to extrude my design and imprint the logo’s N (found for free on thingiverse), 3 hours of printing and some shitty ad made with my phone and I got my fake product.
