The fact that these two separately printed pieces align so well is a really exciting thing to realize, and to experience first-hand. It really does show how much potential there is for 3D printed material. This isn’t anything new, but was definitely new to me – and really eye-opening to experience directly.
Turns out what I needed to do was use vase mode, which doesn’t fill the object completely. Attempt #2 printed in markedly less time, and I was able to go slightly bigger in size (I think the actual model is maybe twice as big as what I did here).
Liz remarked: “You’re going to have a desk full of tchotchkes,” and I really can’t argue with that.
Guess what I got for Christmas? I’ll give you 3D guesses.
