My latest 40-hour print of a 3D mathematical object on the Anet A6 printer.  Now printing the first of 20 prints that will assemble into a remarkable object – and a first for me.

After 47-hours and 56-minutes this beauty was created from Rigid.Ink black pla on an Anet A6.

This is a Mandelbulb, 120mm high, at 0.2mm resolution.  Needs a bit of cleaning up, but you can see the general structure.

I will reprint this even larger using Rigid.Ink trans blue pla filament.

The Missus brought this Romanesco Broccoli home for lunch – so of course it had to be macro’d before we eat it.

What a beautiful fractal structure!

Radio-Controlled clock next to it for accurate time.

Here is a working 3D printed digital sundial showing the correct time in the New Forest Observatory garden.

Compass is to point the sundial North and protractor is to set the sundial angle to location latitude.

Digital Sundial??  Gotta be joking right??  Nope – some genius out there has created a 3D printable Digital Sundial with 20-minute resolution (at 0.1mm printing resolution).

It is a remarkable piece of work.

Only gripe is – it was 10:23 a.m. when I took the picture, not 10:20 a.m.  Just kidding – it’s remarkable!!
