So ever since I brought the plexiprinter along there was the idea of printing christmas cookies, chocolate or other sweets. A long time ago I even bought more than enough syringes on ebay and ever since they were sitting in a drawyer.
After finally showing the printer some attention like 2 weeks back and having Nadia tell me a few days back that we should finally make some 3dp cookies it had to happen.
Since we cancelled the family Christmas (don’t get me wrong – I love my family – just not for Christmas dinner) a few years back – this time of the year tends to be a time were we get stuff done 😉
Syringe attached to the printer:
^ the very first dough extrusion of ours.
The essential programs everyone should know – Slic3r:
and printrun (pronterface)
Still a lot of room for parametrization improvements as well as mechanical ones.
and a baked result (crunchy to say the least)
- slic3r defaults to 200% print material for the 1st layer (doesn’t make sense with 2mm extrusion diameter).
