Parametric core to build a(n)ice stool.
You can choose:

  • legs diameter
  • support height / thickness
  • tilt angle
    OpenScad file 1 and 2 have a different support system (1 is as pictured and 2 has a circular support).


To make it:

  • download the openscad files from my Thingiverse account
  • set your own parameters and generate the stl
  • 3D print the core
  • add the wooden legs, put in a bucket with some water
  • put it outside
  • wait (about 32 hours)
  • tada!

You can also replace ice with concrete (which I'm trying at the moment).

Tart200, any update on the concrete solution?

That's some brilliant idea!)
And some magnificent bobble-in-ice pattern you captured!)

I pour resin in buckets all the time. It was my first thought when I saw this. Works like a charm! Wld love to try this, just need my 3D printer!

Cool! ="thingiverse-6a0e953d54ed88057596d1f1f9ff0889:disqus" href="http://disqus.com/thingiverse-6a0e953d54ed88057596d1f1f9ff0889/Boothie22 Any recommendations on which resin to use? You based in Montreal by any chance?

It would be cool to replace ice with epoxy resin...

Yeah cool! Let me know if you give that a try. Not sure how epoxy would turn out in a plastic bucket though...
