This is simply a 75% scaled version of nervoussystem's Cellular Lamp, cleaned up in the free version of netfabb. This will be the RepRap competition piece for the weeks of Aug 28 to Sept 10 2012.

Print with 2 to 3 shells and zero infill. This is not a requirement but just general advice - it worked well for my print but YMMV. Take a picture and post in the RepRap forum thread if you would like to participate in the competition. Prize is bragging rights and the choice of competition piece for the following weeks.

How big is it in centimeters?

We printed this cool cellular lamp on Ultimaker 2 using PLA with 0.8 mm shell thickness and zero infill. Looks absolutely beautiful !

.15 layer sounds a bit high for a .25 nozzle

Having trouble slicing this in Slic3r. Crashes when it gets to the infill part even though I set it to 0.

It slices just fine for me in Slic3r 0.9.1. It is fairly complex though, if you don't have enough RAM available that could be the problem. It took less than 6 minutes to slice on my Core 2 Duo machine, not exactly new equipment.

I have 8 gigs of ram lol. Well, I got it to slice but through Repetier. Now I'm debating to commit to an 8 hour job haha

The estimate I'm getting is less than 4 hours to print, I'm just starting it now. Printing at 50 mm/s perimeter speed and 130 mm/s travel speed.

Hmm i could try printing at 50mm/s. Im experimenting with the .25mm nozzle and was going for .15 layer height.

Ah, that probably would get you to the 8 hour print time. I'm printing with a 0.4 mm nozzle and 0.2 mm layer height.

Which app did you use to generate this object?

I didn't make this. Take a look at the original Thing. The creator uses this: http://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com/cellCycle/?l=4276http://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com/cellC...

Thanks!! I will print this tonight :-)

It took almost 10 hours. Very nice figure.

I would like to know it too...
