Space Frame lower wall
15th Jun, 2016

This is a print of a new design lower wall part (the ones in the foreground) linked to some of the older prints. The new design is a single square with no overlap, and I’ve also changed the locking prongs to make them a bit stronger. The one on the left is ‘Frosted Ultra Detail’ (which looks like a really poor print), which the other is cheap ‘White Strong and Flexible’ sprayed with the usual Plastikote grey primer. I may add the handles to the triangle centre panels.

I finally figured out how to put the struts of the space frame in without overlapping the floor area: by sinking the wall section down a bit (doh!). This makes it look like the upper floor panels are resting, or bonded onto, the lower nodes of the space frame. All very simple when you know how. Now all I need is the upper wall sections and a decent 3D printing service.
