Starting a night light for my daughter, and decided to make a princess surround. Thus this .stl - Not to pretty to look at, but hold it up to the light and.... look how it changes. It allows light through and looks amazing.
Give me a shout if you have a request to do a different one
Check out my other designs:
Thing: 2367661 - Snow White
Thing: 2370781 - Rapunzel (Tangled - Disney)
Thing: 2373408 - Belle
Thing: 2380001 - Frame
Using Standard White PLA:
Retraction: 6.5mm (1800mm/min speed)
Layer: 1st:H 120% W 150%
1st layer speed 50%
Temp: Bed: 40
Speed: 2600.00 mm/min
I used a raft to ensure that the bottom layer didn't have any lines in (I'm using tape on the bed), as these will show whilst shining light through the print.
There should be no need for post-printing finishing. Although if stringing has occurred remove.
Hold up to the light and see the extra detail not visible on print itself!
Imported an image into Cura (i found that it was best to use a transparent image to ensure that no unwanted background parts would be included) and adjusted its setting to ensure that print would allow light to shine through. Resized the image (to match my requirements - be careful at this stage not to increase the overall thickness, as this will reduce the light pass through). I'm sure at this stage Cura would be able to print the file, however i saved it as an .obj and exported it to S3D (preferred software). Then printed
