My First 3D Print Experience!

 First 3D Printed Object

This is my first 3D printed object; using my friend’s 3d printer and CAD program we printed a letter K (for Kiera). I was able to learn about the program and print process and got a clearer understanding of the different aspects one has to consider when 3d printing, i.e defining the thickness of each layer (in this case 0.3 mm), the fill density, infill speed, travel speed, nozzle diameter, etc.


CAD Progam: Replicator G

Slicing Program: Slic3r

3D Printer: Solidoodle 2

3D Print Material: PLA (polylactic acid)

Print Time: 20 mins
