Wear your geek cred around your neck!


I recommend printing the bow tie out without the solid top and bottom layers (change this setting in your slicing software). This allows the infill to be visible and creates holes to pass string or wire to tie it around your neck!

Can someone explain how I can remove the top and bottom layer in Makerware? Or do I need to download another program? If I have to download another program to achieve this then which one would you recommend?

I use slic3r with my Orion Delta printer.

Go into configure settings, set 0 for top and bottom layer. I use 4 for perimeter, and honeycomb infill.

You don't want the top or bottom layer to print. You just want the perimeter and infill.

Can I have some tips on what Skeinforge35 running a TOMmk6 settings I should use? I unticked "activate bottom" button but i still seem to have a Bottom...Bum

That isn't what "bottom" is for in SF. You should be setting "Solid surface Layers" to 0.

this must be accompanied with a fez!
and I totally was thinking Dr Who, Not Bill Nye.

 Bow ties and fezzes are cool!

 For some reason I read this as "Bill Nye" 

I think it was because of the picture.
