I needed a 1:24 Eames chair for a project, but was in a hurry. I did some quick and dirty modeling based on existing CAD files of the chair, and formatted it for support-less printing. The overhangs are 5-10 degrees over the optimal 45 in some areas, but printed fine for me on a Rep2.

Print both pieces without rafts or support material. There are several manual support contacts you may wish to cut away with an exacto knife. Glue base and chair together - look up a reference photo online, the base sits farther back than you think.

Is that wood filament or just a brown color?

It's actually Ultimachine gold - it looses a little bit of it's "glint" in the photo, but it's one of my all time favorite neutral colored filaments.

How long is build time?

Depends on your printer/settings - and I didn't particularly pay attention - but I'd guess about 30 minutes
