This is my first project entirely designed as parametric object in Rhino Grashopper.
It’s printed in glow in the dark PLA from E-Sun. A battery driven Arduino and step up converter drive an UV led strip in different brightness or pulsing modes.
The after-glow gives a nice effect.
Printed without infill and 3 shells, 0.4mm nozzle and 0.2mm layer height. The version in pictures is 16cm in diameter.
Sink it slightlightly into the build plate (move along Z) to get a flat bottom. Dependig on size and adhesion small manual supports are usefull for stabilization on a moving bed (see printing image).
