The Eiffel Tower - Fixed by jameswood Feb 23, 2013

Description

The original Eiffel Tower from which this is derived caused me slicing problems, so I ran it through Netfabb. This is the fixed version in case it's useful to anyone else.

Hi. I printed the base Ok, and then made the middle part 300% and printed most of it Ok, but not the handrails. I think that is because i had it set to fine, and it was just not enough plastic for it to work. Will try part 3 next and see how we go. Great practice thingy though for my Replicator 2X. Very cool design, Thanks

I think this is turning out to be a model unsuitable for 3D printing! It's just too detailed and intricate. A nice challenge, however. Good luck!

Hmm.. can't get it printed on a UM2. with supports it came to within 2 cm from the top and made spaghetti. Without supports struts after the second platform and started again making spaghetti...

Does it need support??

jameswood on Oct 11, 2013 said:

I've printed it without support, and it was okaaaaaay....

wow, great detail!

smithrj18 on Mar 15, 2013 said:

do you think its possible to edit it to at least 20mm in height? thanks

jameswood on Mar 16, 2013 said:

The model is very detailed at 120mm high, so I doubt it. The small details would be microscopic at 20mm high. You can try scaling down when you slice it if you like. Good luck!
