3D Printing

Download, Modify, Remix Design

The parts were modeled in Autodesk Fusion 360 and available to download, modify and remix. The parts can be exported in several file formats - great if you're using a different CAD package.

Filament Options

We recommend using PLA material for this project. You can use ABS or other type of filaments but may require a heated bed. PLA prints with minimal warping and doesn't necessary require a heated bed.

Slice Settings

The table below is a general reference for slice settings. Every 3D printer is slightly different, so you might want to use settings you're familiar with. 

barnFrame.stl

barnSides.stl

barnHinge.stl

220c
10% Infill
0.3mm Layer Height
No Supports/Raft
90/150 mm/s Speeds

The frame takes abour 3 hours to print.

Sides print in about two hours to print

The hinges print in 3 minutes 

Supports

You only need supports for the bands across the corners that keep the frame held onto the LED panel. You don't need to add supports to the knuckle slots or the bottom of the frame.

We used Simply3D to set the resolution of the pillars to 2mm to make removal easy. 

Support removal

Carfully remove supports using flat pliers by twisting the supports and gently pulling away from the frame.
