Pulmonary arteries - 2 Piece Snap-Fit
by jwolee, published
Originally finole had asked if this item was printable on a Replicator 2. I was pretty certain it was, even though I only have a TOM.
I took the object, sliced it in half with NetFabb Studio, then created pin connectors for the two pieces.
My supports are very well tuned and I can peel them off with my fingers, or help with a pair of tweezers for the more delicate parts.
The larger the print, the more sturdy the detailed parts are, and the easier the supports come off. I suspect an even better print from a larger format printer than my TOM.
Printed with full exterior supports.
10% infill, 2 extra shells.
Carefully remove the support structure with a pair of tweezers followed by a slight sanding with a needle file.
