FDM 3D Printing

These parts are optimized to print with desktop 3D Printers capable of printing in ABS or PLA material with a minimum build area of 100mm x 100mm x 90mm.  The two parts are designed to print without any support material or raft. 

Printing Tiny Buttons

The buttons are rather small and should be printed separately. These can be painted or printed in different colored filament. We recommend printing these pieces with slow feed and travel rates (about 45/50mms).







10% infill

90 feed

120 travel

no supports or rafts

Printing all five parts should take about one hour to print.

Slicing Software

The recommend settings above should work with most slicing software. However, you are encouraged to use your own settings since 3D printers and slicing software will vary from printer to printer.

PLA or ABS Material

We recommend using PLA material for an easier print with high quality. The tolerance has been tested with PLA filament, but should also work with ABS. The parts do not require any support material or a raft.
