Shrunken head Buy now
Yes, it was inspired by the Harry Potter movie too
Yet another Harry Potter related item. This time, it is the shrunken head from the Knight bus. As you can see we printed it in three pieces, but we made a mistake this time. Actually the two back piece was printed for six hours apiece, while the front piece was printed for seven hours. So we lost several hours just because we forgot to check if printing in smaller pieces shorten the time or not.
You may wonder why is it possible that if an object is half the size the printing time is not halved. The answer is the way we print. To increase the quality of the result we set up the slicer application in a way that makes sure one layer is at least two minutes. This means the printing slows down if the layer would be printed for less than two minutes. That means it could happen - and happens often - that printing two pieces of an object doesn't increase the printing time significantly.
