Summary

Modeled in Maya while sitting at a coffee shop near Stanford (man did I feel like I fit some sort of stereotype). After working on "Geo Necklace 01", I wanted to try something slightly more complicated. This "bracelet" is two combined tori: The base is 8-sided, the top is 6-sided. No overhang issues, but I did have to pick out some interior loose filament. Spray-painted it two-tone blue/red.

Instructions

Successfully printed in 'natural' PLA with "medium" settings in Makerware:
Extruded at 210, HBP off, no supports.
2 shells, 10% infill (presuming there is any infill at all).
Took 50 minutes to print, used 13g of PLA.

Printed without Supports?

No supports: As long as your printer can do the bridging, the hexagonal shapes don't require them.

The back edge of this kept curling up. I printed with raft and it worked better.

what kind of spray did you use? Is it holding good on ABS? btw. thanks for nice model :)

I use different types Rust-Oleum spray, have always had good adhesion with them. FYI, I print mainly in PLA, but back when I used to print in ABS, the same paint seemed to stick just fine.

greetings fellow Maya modeler!
