Another simplified Taj Mahal by wilson Sep 1, 2011

Featured Thing!

Description

Seeing tc_fea's Taj Mahal inspired me to upload this version that I printed a few days ago. I found a model on google warehouse and simplified it to make it printable. I didn't hollow it out but definitely should have. This thing is big, too big for a makerbot. It took up most of my prusa platform and took something like 12 hrs to print even with very low infill.

The model was done in Sketchup, which often spits out some pretty messy stl's, then sliced with skeinforge 43. It took about an hour to slice, and skeinforge complained a little, but it printed just fine.

Is any one able to slice this, parts of it disappear in slicing, like 40% of it is gone. Even netfab cloud service can't repair it,

how do you print something this size without warping and curling?

Very nice. Slice it up and then we'd have a Taj Mahal playset. :)

Replicatorg lets you easily resize the model, so don't worry about that. It's a beautiful print!
