Summary

Macouno's Entoforms are weird and beautiful works of generative art and part of a project he's working on to share his script and ship some of his Fossils from the Future:

Instructions

Printing these is going to be a challenge on any printer that doesn't have support material, but with some tweaking I think a few of the simpler ones could come out okay on a Makerbot.

No results.

I've also liked these for a while. Glad some have been posted. I haven't had a problem with support, I turn it on and print. SF does occasionally do some weird things with sipport but generally it does okay.

This one shouldn't be too hard to divide in its sagittal plane and print on its side in two pieces. Would be nice to be able to print it fully with support though. Anyone that knows why support support is so poor in Skeinforge? It seems like every proprietary printer manage this better than the open source ones. Is there really a difference, or is it a mindset of our (the open source) community?

I've been a fan of these since they started showing up on shapeways. Thank you so much for sharing.
