Bunny Jail Alpha: HIPS test by kellyegan Mar 8, 2013

Description

A model of a Stanford bunny floating inside an egg shaped cage. The model is designed to test [MattS's new printing method](http://www.3dppvd.org/wp/2013/02/soluble-support-material/) using dissolvable support material, HIPS.

Nice - you print with support?

Truly a day to rejoice!

Not only is there dissolvable filament available, the advanced
dual extrusion settings of the 2.3 version of MakerWare allow you to print raft
and supports from a single extruder.

When my filament and Limonene arrive, Bunny Jail
will be my first test print

The two models don't have overlap. I used RepG dualextrusion feature to prep the gcode for printing.

Instructions

The method uses a dual extruder to print the main model in ABS while printing support material in the new material HIPS, which can be dissolved in Limonene, an orange based solvent.

The resulting egg cage is pretty delicate as you can see it broke in several places. Size up the model by about 50% will make it sturdier and closer in size to a normal egg.

is your HIPS model a perfect negative of the cage/bunny or can you overlap them freely?
