This model is for FDM/FFF/filament printers only, and has been tested in PLA. I designed this optimized to standard nozzle width (.4) and 0.12 layer height. There are three main stl files: The carousel alone, the optional base alone, and the carousel and the optional base in the same file. (There is also a fourth file with a model of the carousel with the horses removed, just in case anyone might like to try remixing it with some other animals or creatures.)
Details/instructions for printing:
- -PLA, 0.12 resolution
- -no supports, raft not required; need good bed adhesion; 0.2 line height is fine for first layer
- -When removing from the bed, be careful to try and loosen all four horses as well as the center column, separate from the outer ring, so you don't risk breaking the small pieces where they connect.
- -If the horse poles fuse to the outer ring, you may need to carefully separate them on either side with a knife.
