Decorative two piece Asian inspired lantern with geometric design. Designed to print without support. Now with dualstrusion files too.
Print out both pieces.
I uploaded 2 different STLs for the base that I think can be used for dualstrusion, you can print the geometric design in a different color. I don't even have the capability myself but because of the way I created it in Sketchup it was easy to seperate everything. Let me know if theres a step I missed in uploading these.
-The bottom looks great at .25mm layers, 2 perimeters and 12% infill (see pic). Because of its shallow slope, the top would work better with under .25mm layers, 3 perimeters and low infill.
-The columns of the geometric design can get sheared off by the nozzle, especially at smaller scales, and especially if your slicer does the perimeters first and then comes back to infill them solid. I had to revise the design several times to make them stronger.
-The top is supposed to snap onto the base, but you may have to scrape some plastic away once printed to get the proper clearances.
-Check out the attached sketchup file. The geometric design is its own component and can be edited independently. Changing just one panel will update all 6 automatically.
