How to print this?

Recommended Posts

Well, the title says it all.

The option of splitting the part into two exists but is undesirable.

Can't think of a position to have the optimum print quality while keeping the part stable during the print.

I recently printed something slightly similar and succeeded by putting the part on its tail. I added some one line thick perpendicular support sheets to the lower few centimeters and used a brim. The support was easy to break off. My object was about 15cm in height.

I think splitting off the "nose" to get two flat bases for the print would be the best really. If not I would print it with the nose down and add concentric circles for support that I would break away afterwards. Both approaches would need some sanding afterwards if surface quality is of high priority. But I think a single seam would be easier to get rid of rather than lots of contact points around the nose. You'd also get some pretty bad overhangs from the looks of it.

    • "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.
