One day, I bought a 1.0mm nozzle. Now, this bowl wasn't printed using that nozzle, but it did inspire it. Let me tell the tale...
It was a dark, grim winter's eve, storms howling, my humble mountain shack lit only by the dim light of a 3D printer. I thought to myself: if I survive this night intact, I vow to have fun with large nozzles and infill!
Silliness aside, what I did discover with the big nozzle was that infill on large objects was absolutely mesmerising. Massive grids, made up of rigid filament, just as inspiring as the outside, but eventually hidden beneath the print's finished exterior.
So, I had an idea, and I doubtless wasn't the first: what if I opted not to print tops, bottoms and sides, and instead printed nothing but infill? It was cool. Shapes in three dimensions formed only from space-filling patterns! That's how I ended up doing this bowl, initially, woven out of big strands of infill. But, there was a problem...
See, the shapes were awesome, but corners? Nasty blobby messes! And stringing internally like crazy! All the infill settings are designed for quick and effective space filling, and not for producing neat results. Now, one can change those infill settings, and avoid the problems, but introduces its own problems, and kind of defeated the original purpose anyway. Instead, I just designed the same kind of thing, a little more abstracted, for normal printing.
