2-color standing cat by nervoussystem Mar 16, 2013

Description

This is a two color cat model for dual extrusion 3d-printing. It was generated through a simulation of reaction diffusion on a mesh. It's derived from the MakerBot "standing cat" model.

We wanted to play around with using dual extrusion on our Replicator 1 printer to create textured 3D models. We're making an app that takes any 3D model and simulates reaction-diffusion on its surface to yield a 2-color 3D printable model composed of two STL's. What do you want us to test in the app next?

Could you or someone make a 2 color dog?
Is there any way I could print it in one color? I do not have the second printing head, unluckily

<p>hello! this s Eve. I am the Chinese editor of Managing IP. We are likely to do a piece on 3D printer. Do you mind i use this picture but for free? I would definitely give a byline for you to this website. Do you think it is okay?</p>

<p>Having problems with the two models printing side by side. Using Makerware with a Replicator Dual head. Any ideas?</p>

<p>we had a similar problem but upgrading our firmware fixed it</p>

<p>Thanks http://disqus.com/geometry/. I just upgraded to 7.2 (Makerbot Replicator) and the problem still exists. I've given up for now but will probably come back to this at some stage.</p>

<p>Neat!! have you guys tried using a soluble filament for one of the stl files then getting rid of it? Please try and do this!! I would love to see pictures of the finished product!</p>

<p>Looks like it can be printed without support, right? What layer height did you use in the print you posted photos of?</p>

<p>yes, no need for support. the one in the photo was printed at .27mm layer height</p>

<p>Looks great! How about doing this with one of those hermit crab shell models?</p>

<p>we were thinking about doing a shell but at this very moment we're doing the octopus</p>

<p>Oh baby! I'm totally interested in that app/ testing it if you need another shop with a Rep1 dualtruder…!</p>

<p>Need to do a dog next.</p>

<p>Very very cool guys. No leaks, this is a beautiful dual print.</p>

<p>glad you like it :)</p>
