318: 3d printing progress


This is the first structurally coherent thing I’ve printed so far. It is half of a circular kidney bean shape. I’d like to put two together and embed the arduino to serially communicate wirelessly.

The printed shape was too fragile and the printer got irritated and just squiggled some parts. I’m going to continue working on this shape—probably print something with less negative space on the surface. Then I plan on coating the surface in PLASTI DIP. It gives a material quality like the picture below.
