Print The Eiffel

Print The EiffelA post on Objet’s blog shows off a totally amazing 3D print of Paris’ Eiffel Tower. This 20+ cm version is highly detailed and is made with Objet’s clear material. We’re particularly impressed with the lack of “stringies” that are so often found on prints from extruded plastic personal 3D printers. 
The problem is that within each layer the plastic extruder must “jump” from one pillar to another, and this presents an opportunity for small trails of plastic to develop. While personal 3D printer manufacturers have worked on this problem for some time – and indeed have minimized it – Objet’s technology doesn’t seem to have the problem, at least on this pathologically-stringy Eiffel Tower model.

  1. You do realize that using objet's technology it would be impossible to get strings? The only nasty problem you could get is support material that doesn't want to let loose, but using inkjet technology strings aren't an issue.. Awesome print by the way, can I get one as a samplepart Objet? 😀
