An abstract piece of art. It is what it is; an alien brain.
Created in a 3D modelling program (Modo).
This will test the ability of your printer to do arches. This needs no supports or rafts and indeed supports would be a bad idea. On my Replicator 2 printer there are rough spots on the bottom of a few of the arches but no problems printing. The quality of the print is not quite what I would have expected - perhaps it is my filament choice or the model itself, not sure - see the photo of the print.
I have included the file in thing format for Makerware users.
The photos are of the largest size possible with Rep 2.
I used 10 percent infill and 3-4 shells with success.
I have now included version 2 with the hopes of getting a cleaner print but to be honest I think version 1 might look better in the end - your choice - you can have a more pointier (V2) or rounder look (V1).
