3d Printing a wavy structure


Recommended Posts

Posted · 3d Printing a wavy structure

Hi,

I would like to 3D print a wavy structure. It follows a semi-circular footprint, and consists of a wavy slab, beams and arches. I would like to get some advice which is the best orientation, and what custom supports could I produce for this print (as it was test printed in plan orientation and failed.

I am interested in printing the slab separately to the structure, although I am attaching an image of the arches/beams in case these would somehow aid in 3D printing it. The overall length of the slab is roughly 200mm and the thickness possibly 2mm.

Looking forward to hearing your advice,

thank you

    I am on a UM3EX and I would just go with PLA with PVA supports. But it depends on the material strength you need as well as having two extruders.
