Description

"Replica di Venere" The Replication of Venus

with audio: http://youtu.be/aKmJ713CIPc


Cosmonaut figure as Venus on a Replicator, after Botticelli. Had to be done.

Archetype meets Renaissance meets 1920's futurism meets bleeding-edge pop culture. She's getting closer and closer to stepping out into the real world.

"Λειτουργεί σε τόσα πολλά επίπεδα" - Homer


This prints pretty well on a Replicator with these settings:

  • Use the "with elbow strut" .stl variant
  • ABS
  • 75% build space ("fill build space" then scale 75%)
  • Hollow (0% infill)
  • No support material
  • Layer Height = .2
  • Number of shells = 1 (2 total)
  • Nozzle temp = 225
  • Platform temp = 115

The front horizontal bar of the Replicator sags a bit, but it could be sanded. The Replicator's feet curl up, but I didn't use a raft, which might help. The figure's right elbow is the only problematic overhang. Use the strut variant, then clip it off the finished print; there's no need for any other external supports. (Both versions, with and without the elbow strut, are in the .zip file)

Awesome work!
Actually, I was only thinking about "external supports" - I don't know why "full supports" wouldn't work - I haven't used that feature myself yet.
Great success! Thank you :)

Thanks for trying, link in the email didn't work for me either. Wonder if it's because I'm on a mac? I can't imagine it would but who knows. I'm going to try it again with full support. Didn't realize external supports worked that way but that made perfect sense. Sorry if any of that came out rude, I'm nothing but I appreciative I swear! Big fan! :D
Just a heads up, the file without the elbow strut didn't work with Exterior Support on my Replicator. I assume it'd be fine with full support, but I can't confirm that yet.

The 'with elbow strut' file still just brings me to a wall of text, all browsers. :(
I just put both stl files into a .zip archive, and uploaded that here too. Take a look and see if that one opens.
Great success! Thank you :)

I just downloaded the with-strut file myself, and opened it in ReplicatorG without any problems. Not sure what's happening on your end. If I can attach files in thingiverse messages, I'll send it to you.

No rudeness detected.
OK, thanks.

I wouldn't expect the no-strut version to work well, as-is,l on a replicator, even with external supports: that elbow is already above a surface, so the automatic supports wouldn't be placed under it. I included that file in case anyone was using another system.

I will double check the with-strut version and post it again if I see the same problem with the file you're seeing.

"HEY! Who turned out the lights?"
I agree, it had to be done. Really far out!

The elbow strut link takes me to a page full of text, no download. happens in chrome, anyway. I'll try the original with exterior support and a raft.

The shades on the male in the painting is such a great touch, too.
