1:24 Wicker Furniture Set by PrettySmallThings Oct 11, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

A chair, chaise, loveseat and matching table for decking out any 1:24 environment.

If I were to tackle this set again, I'd reduce the depth of the seats, reduce the curvature in the front legs, and take a second look at the angle of the arms. The finish in the arms is a little loose in this print due to overhangs that are a too severe. I had some print defects in these prints, but overall am pretty happy with how they came out.

**Update 8/26/13 - Added two more variations of the chair - one with a shorter seat, and one with a short seat, and less width. Source file included.

Everything you do is fantastic... love it..keep up the great work
The smallest diameters in this design are .85 or .9mm, and I'd bet the chair legs are 2.5mm-3mm.  I think I originally I used my replicators defaults of 45mm/s speed and 55mm/s for travel.  I've also printed it accelerated with sailfish since then - set to 80mm/s, but I doubt I'm reaching those speeds.

Real problem with the design is the towering tiny diameters - if your retraction settings aren't spot on, the design won't reproduce well.  
Hi there PrettySmallThings, I was wondering what kind of speed settings you are using to print this, also when I printed this the legs of the chairs came out really thin, how wide are they on your prints?

Im asking cause im wondering if there is a problem with my slicing software.

Good work and thank you.

Files are ready to print - chair, sofa & chaise have discs under the legs which should help with adhesion. Table should print upside down. Rafts unnecessary.

Source files in the zip are (messy, messy) DWGs.

That's incredible! 
Amazing work. I have only use Slic3r. Not sure if I could
get the bridging to run along the axis of the wicker supports. Do you mind
sharing what extruder diameter and material you used?
I have a Replicator 1 - 1.8mm ABS & .4mm nozzle.
This deserves to be printed in wood a la http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30552

 I agree.
Killin it.  These are awesome.
Wonderful design and execution.  I really like that you design these things to not require support!

If you don't mind me asking, which design software do you use?
I am way too impatient for support :)  

I use autocad - simply because I've been using it for a decade for other purposes and own a copy.  I'd eventually like to master a mesh based program, but for the time being, when I need to do a design quickly AutoCAD is the go to.
Um, OK. Wow.

I like how the pattern left by the printing process looks like a weave on the cushion. The medium and the process have become part of the art.

Lovely prints. Great work.
Just fantastic, your designs will be the standard for a very long time.
Another beautiful model, nice work!
