Description

3DBenchy is a 3D model specifically designed for testing and benchmarking 3D printers. It is a small recognisable object that you can download for free, make and share.

It 3D-prints quickly and is a perfect tool for calibrating your 3D printer. There is a single-part STL file for 3D printing the boat in one material, and a multi-part STL file collection that can be used for multi-material/printhead 3D printing.

You can visit http://3DBenchy.com for more information on how to use #3DBenchy.

For those who want to try #3DBenchy as a 3MF file in the slicing software, we have now created and uploaded the file 3DBenchy.3mf. It is a modern file format better suited for 3D printing. For more information visit http://www.3mf.io/

The original 3DBenchy.stl original file weighs 11,3 MB. The new 3DBenchy.3mf weighs just 3,1 MB but still contains the exact 3D surface information. Please note that not all 3D printing software packages today support the new .3mf file format.

Result:
These two #3DBenchy boats where printed on the same 3D printer from the same print file (thus having the exact same settings). The only difference is that the right #3DBenchy was made after the printer had it's PLA cooling fan improved. The regular artefacts on the right #3DBenchy are a symptom of a mechanical backlash the 3D printer suffers from. Learn more about #3Dprinting at http://3DBenchy.com
