Not bad for fff printing!!

Fri Mar 15, 2019 10:57 am

I've just printed what must be the most complex part I've ever even contemplated printing:
This is one piece....half of the girderwork that forms one side of one of the spans of Brunel's Royal Albert Bridge. Printed in PLA on my (now ageing) Makerbot Rep2 with a 0.2mm nozzle.

It took a while to tease the part off the comprehensive support structure I had to place under has no flat surface on it at all....but it came off without breaking any of the members...some as thin as 0.6mm x 0.8mm. And printed with S3Dv4.1.1....
