Make stronger parts with your replicator
by jasonwelsh, published
This is not a model but a way to make you models stronger if you only own a replicator. There are other ways to do this but I wanted it to be simple for people that dont know much about slicing.

I tried this, looking at a calibration cube. I couldn't see any difference in the fill before and after. I had restarted RepG, and opened fill.csv again to make sure the change was there.
Am I looking for the right thing? I assume that the idea is that the vertical infill is supposed to go up at an angle instead of straight up.

build a 20 x 20 X 5 and print it on the replicator.
Take a pair of cutters and cut it in half.... Then
Find the skeinforge profile for replicator.
Here it is on a mac (see pictures) . Your looking for fill.csv under skeinforge 5.0
Your mission is simple..... Change 90 degrees to 45 Degrees in fill.
Infill Begin Rotation (degrees): 45
After which I would like you to build a 20 x 20 X 5 cube and try and cut it.
Ok so lesson is simple. Angles = strength.
Print your favorite model and tell me what you think ;)
I had to divide the pictures up a little to make the readable... Follow step 1 and step 2 pictures if you cant find the file. On a PC its pretty freeken easy to find..
It will still sound like a rickity old bus being hit by a train but now at least the parts will be stronger ;)
