FR - Tiles Testing
This article was published Jan 27, 2019.
The molding trials are over but I couldn´t leave this idea to somehow use 3D technics to create easy roof tiles. Suddenly this evening I got the idea to "why not print them as loose pieces or small groups" .. ? Said and done, here is the results.
During first test I forgot to reset layer height from 0.3 down to 0.1mm which I usually use for scale models. The key beside it was the cause, I made a couple extra inhouse door keys before. We had only one left so I printed a couple of copies, metal was not needed for this. That´s why the surface is just terrible, both 0.3, very thin AND somewhat leaning surface. They also got fiddly small to handle..
Test two got much better there I grouped them by four. These already could be used as they are!
Test three. Here i grouped them together with a dozen in each item to see how that would turn out. I am very please with the result, probably the version I will use on next building.
