The Gridded Globe is an advanced print for any 3D printer. If you were planning on printing the gridded globe without full support material, then you'll know those floating islands wouldn't stand a chance. This derivative removes the floating islands to reduce the amount of unsupported and unbridged extruded filament that could cause problems in other areas of the print. There are still extreme overhangs that will leave filament hanging. Good luck, and happy printing from Glitch 3D Models in Vancouver BC.


Scale to the maximum size of your printer and enjoy this advanced bridging exercise. I apologize to Japan, Ireland, Indonesia and all the Caribean countries.

I kinda wish the walls of the globe were thicker; it would print a ton better.

I printed without support material, and it looked fine.

did you use support material ?

Support material is not required! With a well tuned machine, a little drooping will occur under the unsupported parts
