spirograph drawing print


Recommended Posts

Posted · spirograph drawing print

I would like to 3D print a spirograph drawing, made online by inspirograph. The program I want to take the drawing of from the background is GIMP, because I don't have photoshop. The program looks quite similar. 

Doe someone know how to fix this?

Or do I have to use another program?

When I enter the drawing in Cura just as it is, Cura also prints the background, so I want to take of the background, that only the drawing is printed.

Thanks in advance for your answer

    I have never tried printing "images", so this is guessing.

     

    Cura should be able to print JPG-images. So if you save your design from GIMP as a JPG-file, it should work. I don't know if black is higher and white lower, or vice-versa.

     

    If the background also gets printed, maybe you could lower the model a little bit into the build plate, or cut off the bottom layers, so this background disappears?
