Tried something new today. Let Slicer generate its own support material just to see how it would work. A student wanted to try making a hat, and I thought that was a good idea so here is my version. Pretty thin shell, printed in PLA. Really need to get back to ABS.
Took about 6 1/2 hrs to print, and without the support it probably would have taken 4.
First part bridged with the support material.
Print came out pretty decent. Still trying to get a few more things dialed in but I'm happy with the quality.
The support material was a PAIN to get out. Still have some cleanup to do too.
Ended up cracking the shell in a couple of different spots trying to get it all out.
But hey, IT FITS!!!
Now to make a brim. This one's a bit small but I figure once I get
everything figured out I can scale it up or down in Sketchup!
On a side note, as you can tell the hair is getting just a *tad* long... The day I shaved after being in the play I was informed by my students SEVENTY TWO TIMES that I had, in fact, shaved. Going to put the haircut off a few more weeks so's I don't have to endure that again!
