Description

I liked the "LED Christmas Tree" very much, but wanted to print it with just one or two shells. It has the same shape as http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1406 ,but it is solid on the inside

Like this very much - thanks!
Sorry, I just have the STL.
I took the STL file from thing 1406 and modified it a bit. (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1406)
Just open the STL in your favourite 3D-CAD software and modify further.
What's the draw? Add, please file for editing.

<p>Did you print this with a fan? What is you setup?<br></p>

<p>Yes, I use a fan.<br>Printrbot+ with this fanmount: <br>http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26775&lt;br&gt;Printed with repetierHost, sliced with Slic3r: 0.2mm, 185C/55C, zero infill, 2 outer shells, zero top and bottom layer.</p>

<p>I still do not get this shell technique I keep hearing about.  What is it and do you have a link I can read up on it?  You mentioned solid so what is the infill or is that what shell is? </p>

<p>It is how to print an object hollow.</p>

<p>If you set Slic3r to zero infill, 2 perimeters, zero top and bottomlayers (horzontal), it only prints 2 outher shells and nothing within.</p>

<p> Ahhh, so the top and the bottom are actually connected but the rest are not?  Sort of like printing it twice with one inside the other?</p>

<p>If it were a solid zylinder: <br>Zero infill would print it hollow.<br>Zero infill and no top and bottom layer would print it as a pipe.</p>
