In Topic: 3D Printed Nauticam Bayonet Cap

Abs is always tricky, to get the temperature just right, and this is a wide part, but I've been able to get some pretty impressive detail with some care and good luck. I'd probably try this with pla at 50% infill and a shell 3-4 layers thick, and just print a few incase one ever happened to break :)

I don't understand the need to glue it together, you could just print with support material. Do you have the combined file handy for me to print a trial? What material did you use, pla or abs?

No problem, I do 3d printing as a side job at hub Astronaut Studios.

You could probably also just ask for additional outside layers but for something small, 100%infill is not difficult and yes will make a much better long term print for setting going underwater. Startup fee is way beyond the filament fees at that size so order 10 and have spares for a lifetime.

There are glow in the dark 3d printing materials. Check out 3dhubs.com for a hub who is near you with glowing filament. I know I have glowing PLA which is the same type of plastic as water bottles.

Same goes for photographing in the US. For example, photographing seaturtles, such such leatherbacks, greens and hawksbills, require permits, and they are very hard to get. I see people photograph them all the time, as were Ilive is prime nesting for those 3 species. However, it is not legal to photograph them without permit and I have seen one "very big name" production shut down due to them showing up to photograph permits thinking it will not be a problem, they will just get a permit on the fly based on who they are and what they do.

Nesting or in the ocean? Never heard of requirement for photos of turtles in the ocean, but Nesting is of course, different.
