Warning: Missleading title. Lasers are not included in this model, but you can add them by yourself. Laser safety warning: Laser radiation is dangerous! Please protect remaining eye! .-)

Use a LEDs instead... it looks even better this way.

I printed this twice. Both times it stopped exactly in the same print, printer said the print was finished. About 1/2" tall. Medium quality

Great thing to make night lamp with it. Just print with transparent pla, add some soft flashing less and thats it!


What should the layer hight be. Is 0.05 possible?

worked fine for me.

HEy do you use supports when you are printing these?

It looks like you don't need support to print the cat out.

The only bad thing is, that exactly 28 into slicing, my computer crashes. Every time! Using Slic3r. My computer isn't weak either. FX-6350 and GTX 560.

What version of Slic3r do you use? I just sliced it with Slic3r without any problems. Do you have enough RAM? 4gb should be OK.

Slic3r 0.9.9 and i do have 4GB RAM.

Just sliced the cat (LaserCat-_Voronoi_coarse.stl) with Slic3r 0.9.9 and 0.9.8 without any problem on a VM (xp with 3gb ram and single CPU).
The latest Version of Slic3r is 0.9.10b, have you tried it with this version, too?

beautiful. What program did you use for the voronoi?

you can actually do most of the voronoi operations in meshlab. I just learned how to do this myself. Meshlab is confusing as hell, but there are some tutiorials specifically around voronoi-izing things: http://meshlabstuff.blogspot.ca/2009/03/creating-voronoi-sphere.htmlhttp://meshlabstuff.blogspot.c...

Tried that a few month ago and Meshlab crashed a LOT during that time. Tried it with the Linux and the Win64 Version and had no luck.
I use Meshlab a lot to remash and repair and had no problem doing that.

I already covered that question here:
Sadly, there is no simple "Klick and go", but a lo of small steps to do.
