A model of a Stanford bunny floating inside an egg shaped cage. The model is designed to test MattS's new printing method using dissolvable support material, HIPS.


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.

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

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

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

Dissolvable support materal.. Interesting idea!
