At Halloween time we display the Pumpkins and with the inner flesh make soup, pies and other food items.
As a food item you will invariable add a condiment in the form of salt, pepper or some other savoury or spice.
It therefore seemed appropriate to create a Pumpkin themed condiment set for salt and pepper as a minimum.
Materials and methods
Five STL files are created 2 spouts, 2 pumpkins and a stopper.
The same slicing details were applied to all but one element and this was the stopper.
The difference is in the base adhesion and infill density.
As the stopper is to be printed in TPU which is a flexible filament and does not delaminate at the layer edges no base support is required.
If you do inadvertently print the stopper with a brim you can use a scalpel to carefully cut the brim off.
Layer Height: 0.15mm
Infill Pattern: Tri-Hexagon
Infill Density: 25% (80% for the stopper)
Build Plate Adhesion: Brim (For all but the stoppers).
No supports are required.
The two pumpkins could be printed separately or as a pair using an orange filament.
The pumpkins printed at 100% are 79mm x 79mm x 40mm and take ~6.63 hours each to print.
The two spouts would seem appropriate given the size to be printed together using a green filament.
The spouts printed at 100% are 24mm x 24mm x 25mm and take ~30 minutes for the salt and ~1 hour pepper to print.
If printing the stoppers these use TPU without build adhesion.
The stopper printed at 100% are 24mm x 24mm x 5mm and take ~10 minutes each to print.
Most of the work will be applied to the pumpkin to remove the stringers from the inside which can be removed with long nose pliers and cutters.
Prior to applying a resin inlay to the outer surface to highlight the facial elements first apply a coating to the inside.
This serves to fill in any gaps and crevices in the model to protect against bacterial build up and external transfer via any gaps and make it easier to clean.
Once the internal coating has dried its time to turn your attention to the outside.
As the resin inlay will be in a dark colour (in this case black), wicking into the model will show up around the area to be coloured unless this area is first given a clear coat which is allowed to dry.
Once the outer coat has dried the inlay to the facial elements can be applied.
Paint, nail varnish or resin can be applied to the facial elements using a fine paint brush or cocktail stick and allowed to dry before use.
Issues are used to track todos, bugs or requests. To get started, you could create an issue.
