Step 1: Download and Print STL Files
When printing make sure to select the option to print using supports.
Step 2: Refine 3D Printed Parts and Remove Supports
Use a chiesel to remove the supports. Then use sand paper to smooth any rough edges or corners.
Step 3: Cut the Polypropylene
- 3× 265mm×35mm For horizontal lengths
- 6×105mm×30mm For vertical lengths
Step 4: Slot Vertical Lengths of Polypropylene Into the Base
Make sure all lengths are equally spaced and straight.
Step 5: Place Top on the Vertical Lengths of Polypropylene
Make sure to insert one piece at a time.
Step 6: Weave Horizontal Strips In-between Vertical Strips
Leave beginning and end of the strips on the inside of the desk tidy for a cleaner finish.
