Everything prints without supports. The highly detailed egg top and bottom parts require a layer height of 0.1 mm. A layer height of 0.15 mm is sufficient for the connector and stand.
The connection mechanism is designed with ease of print and part alignment in mind. The top thread has a smaller diameter and pitch than the bottom one - to connect both egg parts, twist the connector on the top part as far as it will go, and then twist the bottom part. The connector threads have a low tolerance, allowing parts to line up easily.
This may be a long, yet ultimately rewarding print, which you will enjoy for years to come!
Materials and methods
Print the top and bottom egg parts in as low a layer height and small perimeter width as possible.
Egg top and bottom:
- Layer height: 0.1 mm
- External perimeter/wall width: 0.4 mm or less
- Number of perimeters/walls: 3
Connector and stand:
- Layer height: 0.15 mm or less
The models shown were printed with a 0.4 mm nozzle (turquoise) and a 0.25 mm nozzle (pink, purple) at a layer height of 0.1 mm. They were sliced with Prusaslicer 2.6-alpha-6 using the Arachne perimeter generator.
