I’ve just been experimenting with some designs that are made up of connectable pieces, and this is the outcome of a test print to see if the pieces will connect and hold together. This is one of the great things about 3D printing – within an hour being able to test a concept and have the confidence to move forward with the design. I’m also pretty pleased that the ‘Up! Plus 2‘ I’m using is doing a good job at producing these 1.5mm diameter pieces, with only a bit of messy detail at the round connection points. Moving this into an SLS process should solve this for the final outcome.
