Dual strusion light house
by theroar, published
A light house in two colors. Something is jinky though as the lighthouse and building stagger by a mm half way through the print. Any tips?
Just finished a OpenSCAD version of it. It is one color at the moment... Will tweak that in a bit. Just brute force on the open cad... Lots of places I am sure I could have used smarter or more elegant code. But, I am lacking code skillage. =) Still pretty cool to have it look like I want. The multiple cylinders on the top of the light house are copied code from example 5. I just kept tweaking it till they appeared where I wanted.
I have built this 4 times. In 1 color it printed fine. Dual struded it staggers. I cannot figure out why. The rebuild of the project today seemed bullet proof. I made each section of it a group. Lined them up and set the colors right just so it was easy to visualize. I then selected all the red parts and exported as an STL... Did the same for the white parts. No joy though... I added a pic of a mono color one just to prove that it did work. =)
