We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Aleph is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet. This aleph looks like it's being carved in stone.
Designed in ZBrush.
Update 1: This thing is now available to order from Shapeways at http://shpws.me/nJtz in a wide variety of materials.
Update 2: At the request of my wife, who is a rabbi, I printed a super sized version that is almost 6" tall. You can do this by scaling the STL file before you print it.
I used ReplicatorG to prepare the file, a MakerBot Replicator2 with the Replicator 2 slicing defaults and the following settings with white ProtoParadigm PLA to do the printing:
Infill = 10%
Layer Height = 0.200
Shells = 1
Feedrate = 40
Travel Feed = 55
Temperature = 220
I used a raft with full support. This 44 mm high version took 1:14 hours to print and used 11 grams of material.
