I'm often asked how big a piece I can print. As centimetre values have little meaning to laypeople, I tried to print the biggest possible volume as economically as possible. The result is also remarkably sturdy. 19 x 19 x 11 cm


All walls are 2 mm. Be sure to check perimeter width (set to 0.53 in Slic3r).

The file name was 19^2. Thingiverse removes ^ as well as % from file names. I'll have to remember that.

Rounded angles just for style, I guess?

Hehe, I think I'll make a customizable version of this!

(especially to score exact two-nozzle thick walls)

This is a very obvious candidate for a customisable thing. I'd originally intended to make a cube(filled), then print it with a very low infill in a honeycomb pattern and no top and bottom infill. Would have looked much cooler. Unfortunately that didn't work, as you can see. The printed filament was starting to take "shortcuts" at every corner.
