Darth Vader ring, built to show the world your allegiance to the Federation!


There are two ways you could print this ring, the first being the simple use of support. For a cleaner top surface, though, I would recommend using the "Pause at height" plugin of your favorite slicer at .75 mm or whatever your layer height is that begins printing the flat top of Darth's helmet. After the printhead has moved away from the object, place a couple of stacks of tape layers (.75 mm thick) along the top fin of his helmet. This will give the helmet a much easier to remove support.

Ring base is from the Saw Ring by Bre, ring top is from his Darth Vader helmet.

i have made 3 attempts to print this model, all of which failed. tried with and without rafts, and with and without supports. a shame though, the vader head part looks really cool :)

If you were to use the stubby ring-a-thing you could print it right side up and just snap it on.

I may have to redo the model! Thanks for the heads up!. The one piece is kinda nice in so much as this is very solid, but seperating it out would definitely make it a much easier print. As it is, this is a bit of a fun challenge to the printer.

i look forward to your your multi-piece model :)
