Snail shell

Postby wilsonj » Tue Aug 07, 2012 9:01 pm

I wasn't sure if this would print without inner support, but the small amount that did was easy to remove. There was also a bit in the small end, but it isn't visible so not really a problem.

Printed on .2mm, normal, support 10 degrees.

Thanks Dizingof !

Beautiful! Dizingof rocks - his models almost always print wonderfully despite looking impossible!

Nice Scott, I've been wondering if it would print on a mini. What is the scale/size that works for you?

Cheers, Matt

I just kept changed the scale until i though I had it as large as I could print. I rotated the part to print on a diagonal too. No idea what scale it ended up being. It would be nicer if the scale factor remained a multiple of the original size i.e. scale to 0.8 than 0.5 makes the model half its original size rather than the current setup where the scale factors are multiplied (0.8*0.5 = 0.4).

Printed on 0.20mm layer thickness, 10degree support and max air with OEM yellow filament.

Hi Scott

Thanks for the pointers. I will give this a go with white ABS I don't have colors yet.

Cheers, Matt

WoW ! This looks really amazing.. I thought it would be fun if u print a lot of shells that u dreamed about because 3D printers bring u this opportunity and throw them near the sea or other watered place.. Others will think : what an amazing shell I have found..or : OMG ! this snail shell is not like many others..I will tell about this to all the world.. And u became popular :D Ok, I am joking. I want to say that UP really do the best of its job :) And this is cool because printed creation quality is really important. I have been faced up with a problem when I bought a Gary snail model and wanted to print it because for my sisters birthday. I printed it with other printer and it was not so cool as I have thought it would be... U know : u live, u learn.. :) Thanks for sharing your printed model.

Dizingof removed all his designs from Thingiverse some time ago because so many people were ignoring the terms of the license agreement and using them commercially without attribution and/or permission. His work can still be found on Ponoko, but you will have to pay for it.

That's disappointing ... I really loved his work and have a few sample pieces around the house. I suspect this will be a growing trend in 3D printing.

Yeah, and he's a very nice guy. Just got upset because every 3D printer make was using his designs to promote their products. Can't blame him; he's a unique talent. I've printed a bunch of his stuff, too.

I noticed a familiar face appearing in some of the current hosts of his work! Having a look around I also noticed a potential double infringement by QU-BD ... looks like they are using his work to sell their project and they called their product One Up and Two Up
