in 3D Printing Design held by gary99
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Design two symmetrical Rhombicuboctahedrons (Rohm' for short) for printing on Prusa 3D MK2.
The 1st Rhom' needs to be made of 2 parts that can be connected to form the complete shape.
The width of the Rhom' should be 100nn from face to face.
Each edge of this Rhom' needs to have a 5mm high 'fence' sticking outward.
Two inner benches or plates need to be constructed in the inner space of each of the halves.
The 2nd Rhom' is also made of 2 parts but without fences and without benches. It is a simple Rhom'. It needs to fit exactly on the 1st Rhom' from the outside. so that the 1st Rohm' go inside the second one.
The attached jpg and max files depict the 1st Rhom'. However the max file is full of mistakes and should not be used as anything but as a general reference. Nor the 'fences' need to be constructed as V shape as in the max files.
Please ask me anything which is not clear.
The resulting gcode file must be designed and tuned for Prusa 3D MK2 including proper support etc, and needs to print without problems on Prusa MK2.
Don't Wants:
3D file that does not print well on Prusa
  1. 3D Studio or solid and simplify 3D.

#22 Final changes by handsketcher
All the changes are added. STL file names may need to be changed when you import them to printing software. I used thickness value in the file name like "0.9mm". The dot in the file names may not accept by some softwares.
If all these are acceptable then I'll upload solidworks files in another submission.

#6 3d-Printing STL files and G-Code with proper supports designed by GKG
This model is the 3d -printing version of my design. I have considered the support structures, G-Code, optimized for 3d printing on PRUSA printer.

#5 Rhombicuboctahedron by GG Designs by GKG
Hello gar996756,
This model is accurate for 3d printing straight after download.
Wall thickness maintained as per requirements.
5mm Fence also prints well with no problems.
Bench is designed inside both halves and also a non-bench version is included if required.
Rom1 fits exactly inside Rom2
Rom upper and lower halfs have lips(grooves at the edge) for easy and tight fixing both into one piece.
Model is 3d printing ready. Let me know if you need more customization.

#7 Rohm Design by Mahbub
Please check the attached images for details. I have the Prusa i3 MK2 3d printer and I know the best solution for this project. Thanks

You have STL files of both top and bottom attached. The parts have a 2mm wall thickness and per your dimensions.
Neither of these two parts should require supports to print. I'm not real clear on the "fence" profile that is wanted.

People that don't show their design typically are copying someone elses.
