<p>Inspired by <a href="https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3565827">Turbo_SunShine's design</a>, I wanted to go further. I've marked this as a "remix", but the openscad and stl files are original -- just the idea is inspired by TSS</p> <p>This experiment shows that if you have a multi-material printer, you can use TSS's technique to create a gradient filament. Here, I demonstrate a small 2-material filament section created via openscad. It produces only about ~2g of filament, less than 1 meter.</p> <p>The OpenSCAD program that produces the files is a piece of junk and takes quite a bit of time to run. As such, it is not feasible to make it into a customizer at this time. (also, I think the scad file doesn't match the stl files provided, oops!)</p> <p>The frog model is <a href="https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18479">here</a> and the vase model is <a href="https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18672">here</a></p> <h3>Print instructions</h3><p>Resolution: 0.2mm</p> <p>Infill: <strong>100%</strong></p> <p>My sample is made of some "bronze filament" and some glow in the dark PLA. However, you should be creative and try whatever sounds fun.</p>
