After further testing I have discovered that for the time being, a hexagonal grid pattern is not a viable solution for this semester’s research with the limited time left. Due to the fact that the plastic is not directly smashed on the the fabric as it was during the 2D panel tests, there is a little bit of drag that is allowed before the plastic hits the suspended fabric—this causes a certain amount of curve smoothing to occur in the the extrusion path. Therefore a diagrid pattern is still the best solutions as it allows the extrusion path to be linear allowing the … Continue reading Updated on Semester Research

This is the first set of prints testing the hexagonal print pattern from the scripts in the previous posts. It is also the first panel print since the robots have been re-installed. As you can see the pattern did not print so well. Future tests will consist of an enlarged hexagonal pattern and a diagrid pattern.
