Printing Pokemon to Save Plastic

Separator

By Joel Telling, @joeltelling

 

One of the common terms used during 3D printing is ‘infill percentage’. This term refers to how solid the model you are printing in. For example, if I say I’m using 15% infill, it means the model is 15% plastic in the middle, and 85% hollow.

 

Most times, people will use 10%-20% infill for their models. What if I told you that wastes plastic and you don’t always have to use infill?

 

It’s true. This week, I use a Pokemon (Pikachu to be specific) to demonstrate the strength a model can achieve while using zero infill.
