Hats off to AndreasBastian's outstanding design with thing:289650!

This customizable version uses similar geometry in a parametric scad file, allowing control over some key variables, notably the following:
width and height of sheet
base pattern size
type of node structure (triangular or square)
number of turns in the pattern
sheet thickness
line width

Also included is a zip file with a stripped down version of the scad that can be easily included and called within other designs.

My hope is that this helps others use AndreasBastian's great work within designs where these unique material properties are useful. Already working on a few....

How do you set with Cura? I have tried and fail many times

I haven't tried it with Cura - is there a specific error message on fail?

Awesome work! You should mark it as a remix of AndreasBastian's thing, I'm sure you will get more views.

Thanks! I actually thought I had... Or at least as a derivative in the 'ancestry'. Is there another way to denote remixes?

It looks like you might not have pressed the "Add Source" button or didn't save the thing after adding the source.

Cheers for that - foolish mistake, forgot to hit "add source"!

Can I upload this to shapeways, I dont have a printer yet and I want to see this model in person

Certainly - just use customizer to create the STL for size sheet you want, then upload that STL
