Materials & Slice Settings

This design requires a 12 x 12 inch bed size. If your 3D printer isn't capabile of larger sizes, you could print the pieces separately and glue them together.

The stool legs use TPU material, so will need an extruder capable of printing flexable filament.  Reference the slice settings in the table below – We're using Simplify3D to slice the parts.

PLA 245c  / 60c bed

No supports

30% infill

2mm Z-Hop

90mm/s print speed

120mm/s travel speed

Infill angle offsets:
45, 60, 90, 120, -120

We used a 6mm brim to insure the bottom doesn't curl up while printing.

The seat part take about 30 hours to complete.

Z-Hop is used to prevent any collisions with the print head and any edges that might curl up.


We used infill angle offsets to increase the strength of the seat.


The stool feet are printed in original Ninjaflex to make them grippy, but you could also use semi-flex or cheetah.

Increase infill strength 

We utilized the 3d infill technique by cetting the infill angle offsets to 45, 60, 90, 120, -120. This will alternate how the infill is stacked on top of each other, giving the seat more strength.
