Introduction: 3D Printed Mustache

Picture of 3D Printed Mustache

One of the first thing I made at TechShop is this cool mustache.  I created the 3d model using Rhino software and printed on Type A machine.  This is an easy and fun project to do with kids or with friends. 

I made this at TechShop.  www.techshop.ws

Step 1: Create 3d Model

Using Rhino software, I created this 3d model of a mustache.  First, I drew the outline of the mustache on plan.  Next, I extruded the object to give its depth.  I've included the STL file for your use. 

Experiment with different shapes and have with it. 

Step 2: Print

I used the Type A machine at TechShop.  I converted the STL file into a gcode file using a free software KISSlicer.  Next, I loaded the gcode file into Pronterface and set it to print.  The model took less than 6 minutes to print.  The process is quite simple and fun.  Try testing out with other shapes.
