Summary

A spiky crown made for a costume project. Creating something like this with solid modeling isn't ideal...

Overall dimensions:
Diameter: 140mm (5.5")
Front spike height: 160mm (6.25")
Other spikes height: 110mm (4.24")

Instructions

If you want to print with support, I've provided the full model. Depending on the size you want the the printer you have you can either print the separate pieces or print as the top half and add the bottom spikes onto it. Keep in mind the size is smallish, so it may need to be resized for larger heads.

For large printers print:
1XCrown1-TopHalf
1XCrown1-FrontBottom
4XCrown1-Bottoms

For Smaller printers (Sized for Thing-O-Matics) Print:
1XCrown1-Front
1XCrown1-Left
1XCrown1-Right
2XCrown1-Back (Can be printed 2 at a time in an array)
1XCrown1-Topper
1XCrown1-FrontBottom
4XCrown1-Bottoms (Can be printed 4 at a time in an array)

All the pieces are tabbed so they'll fit together when printed. When we assembled it, we glued everything together using acetone.

I've been unable to get the Crown1.stl to print for a client without the lower spikes screwing up in some way. I'm starting to think that one spike is just the smallest of measurements larger than the others making it sit on the base plate while the others are forced to float. If you look at the object with the largest spike being #1, when going clockwise spike #3 always prints perfectly for me in all attempts while the rest fail. My other ideas are that the spikes are too thin to support or my MakerBot 5th gen doesn't think they need it and screws up. Neither of those explains one always printing correctly.

Tomorrow I will attempt the stl file with no lower spikes..

Awesome! Which costume was this for?

 It's still a work in progress that my girl friend is making. I might put up some pictures when it's finished.
