Tennis fans will appreciate this... print one for yourself or as a small fun gift. The racquet has been directly scaled rom a current top level tennis racquet. Even if you're not a tennis fan this quick print is fun to try... see how well your machine prints the fine strings.
This is a very quick and easy print however the strings are a good test your machines bridging capability. Not all machines / slicing apps will deliver a nice well strung racquet. A good print in two colours (pause at 35% and 85% with a1mm raft) looks really great and is a small but impressive print.
Four .stl files have been provided. Two have a fitting on the end for a key ring (FOB Type) and two don't (Racquet type). Within each type there is "Recessed" (R) which has strings that represent a real tennis racquet and the "Flat" (F) type which has strings the full height of the print... this is for people with machines / slicing apps that don't bridge as cleanly as other machines / apps.
To make your recessed print multi-coloured. with a 1mm raft, pause your machine at 35% and 85% to switch in / out colours. Easy to do and the result is great.
