Another Castle with 0.20 mm Nozzle on Printrbot

Here is a print of Stephen Cameron’s computer generated castle using one of our 0.20 mm nozzles. It is a really cool print that took me a while to get right.

I added “cooling towers” to the model so I could get the highest towers printed without melting from the heat of the nozzle. The cooling towers give the nozzle something to go do while the main model is cooling in prep for the next layer.

    Nice! I’ll have to give that a try.

    Your “cooling towers” concept is brilliant. I’ve not seen that before.

    What is the layer height and time required on that print?

    Donaldj, The layer height was 0.12 mm. Unfortunately, I ran the print overnight and didn’t pay attention to the time it took. I think it Pronterface said something like 5 and a half hours, but it usually over estimates the print time.
