Here we go again. Maybe.

You know the drill!
I'll try to make a earring every day, usually resulting in a sloppy sketchup-file exportet to STL (try using netfabb to fix it, or in case you own a UP, use "print unsolid model"), or sometimes something more ambitious.

Today something simple, to print on my Printrbot. It's calibrated much better now (tighten those belts!), so I'll print this one again soon.
Sorry for the bad picture, I'll make new ones once I re-printed it in finer settings and color them.
Stay tuned!


Prints fine on the UP with low support settings, though the undersides of the standing loops do not turn out well (ideas?).
On the Printrbot with Slic3r 0.9.7 and automated support (30°/4mm spacing or so) it turns out rather well, a bit more messy then on the UP and not as easy to clean (at least with PLA), but the undersides are not as deformed. With the old version (that was in the original online documentation) all I got was a big blob of plastic with very thin fused ring shapes.
