I made some links of chain, arranged just so that I could slip a previously printed link over two adjacent links, while they were still being printed. Purists may take exception, but I think it’s kind of cool.

The links were printed with a 0.4mm MakerGear nozzle, using 0.26mm layers. All the ‘extra shells’ settings in Skeinforge->Fill set to 0, the infill turned way down, and lots of cool air..

Almost done printing

Each link is about 10mm * 15mm

41 links, printed in batches of 5.

    Thanks for putting up pictures. I’m trying to dial in my machine with controller settings not quite right and to see your stuff is encouraging. This looks amazing!
