Pineapple springo? Say no more...
This is the half-scale version of my Pineapple Springo, part of the Tasty Springos Pack No.1 which you can check out here.
I got the best results printing with 3 outlines/shells, 0.15mm layer height, and enough solid top & bottom layers to make the spring part solid infill. No supports required.
After printing, carefully separate the coil using a thin spatula, palette knife, butter knife, etc. Work slowly and with caution, especially if you are using sharp tools!
*note:* These Springos can be very large and complicated models. Slow computers may struggle with the springo part. There may also be tiny 'holes' that can prompt errors or warnings, but I have sliced these files without issues using Simplify3D and Cura. Results may vary with other slicers. Please share your experiences good and bad so I can continue to improve. Thanks ☺︎
Springos pictured were printed using MatterHackers PRO PLA (Clear, Blonde, Green) and Fillamentum Vertigo Galaxy PLA
