Printing in a mesh structure

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a question regarding printing in a mesh structure. LIke in the middle picture below:Figura-4.jpg

I've looked at the voronoi structures created by grasshopper, but they are all like a 2d voronoi extruded. Whereas, these ones are more like randomized mesh. Can you help me figure out how to make these? Or, is it possible to assign the Ultimaker to print it in such way?

These are likely created using the Weaverbird for Grasshopper. Or at least they would be easy to create using that plugin. Been using it for some similar work lately that I've been meaning to post here.

Anyway, have fun generating support material for such prints! Meshmixer is the only way.

    • "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.
