Waste Crawler by dutchmogul Jan 5, 2013


Creature for a scifi setting I'm currently developing, printed in 15mm scale (as shown with the excellent Khurasan models).

Working on ways to get the detail to come in and reduce the extrusion lines. Considering a .5 layer height...

Model was designed in Sculptris and TinkerCAD.

Absolutely! And I'll see what the difference is once painted as well.

Awesome! I can't wait to see what you do with this! Could you post some before/after pictures of how it turns out?

Dude, you have been EXTREMELY helpful. As one who's not technically minded, this is exactly the kind of help I need. I'm going to go and do this now...

I think your best bet for reducing extrusion lines is to increase your shells and solid layers and then sand very slightly. Although doubling the layer resolution from 0.1 down to 0.05 does look better, the extrusion lines are always more prominent with curved surfaces.

Right, that makes sense. I hadn't considered more shells, figuring that wouldn't matter because he was 100% infill, but it could, huh? Also, I'm considering putting him in the oven at a temp just below glassing.
