Self Supporting chain mail (or fabric?) for 3D printing
by Nath, published
Chain mail (or a scratchy fabric) designed for the limitations of 3D Printing. Has been designed to have no overhangs and 45 degree max span angles. Can probably squish it down height wise for smaller prints.. But how it is is conservative.
Will look at enhancing the design a bit to perhaps make it more aesthetically pleasing or gentler on the skin on the pointy side.
Is quite flat on the down side so should stick nicely to the bed.
Print without raft/supports.
Really depends on how you're going to print it/scale it as to what settings. Is pretty strong with just 2 shells/medium res on a replicator 2.
When stacking things be careful about spacing - you don't want anything touching.
Has been run through netfab.
