What is your favorite test print object?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

my question is already in the subject ;)

Why I'm asking? For my first prints I always used the UM robot what is actually not the best idea I learnt.

What I am looking for is a test object that prints fast, includes an area where retraction is used and last but not least is of use after printing (like the robot).

Any ideas?

For me it was always http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8757 one, the hollow pyramid.

(ohnoooooo he made a link to thingiverse).

I always had it sunk in the bottom a couple of mm so the bottom would not take that long.

But it gives you a damn good idea on what settings to use for your filament if you want to print with an overhang and without any stringing.

Atleast... from my experience :)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
