Custom brim for a 3x scaled Makies Pumpkin Base -- Makes a nice Halloween Candy Bowl
I was printing a 3x scaled Makies Pumpkin and was 85 to 86% complete when the print died. (Was printing from SD card but host machine in lab was rebooted and to my surprise/disgust the two machines that were printed directly from SD card also stopped when the host went down) Rather than waste 18 hours of print time and half a roll of filament I came up with a lid/brim that covered the exposed infill and reasonably salvaged this print for an alternative use. I printed it in black PLA and felt it was too start so I then printed this brim in Orange PLA and I am happy with the result.
Prints fine w/o a brim.
Pause or kill your pumpkin body print at 85 or 86%. Then print this cover. Use Loctite 401 to glue the cover onto the pumpkin body. Enjoy
