Hello, thanks for your comment !

  1. We're working on 1Kg stools, we have already print few.We will publish it as soon as it's ready.

  2. Its took 2 days and 8h to print. I don't know for the electricity as it is explained in the pdf report, Part 9 - Analysis, p.32.

  3. It's made to be printed on a CR-10 S4 or any printer with a volume of 400x400x400mm. You could even try to print it on a CR-10 standard by scaling it down in x and y. It's not really on the edge on my printer, the bed is 400x400, the part is 320x320.
    The 1Kg stool we're working on will fit in the volume of a CR-10 standard.

  4. Resistance to the sun is one of the constraint functions in the functional specification (CF3 : Environment - Have to withstand an indoor environment, and direct sunlight p.4). No deterioration have been observed as of this day. I believe PLA degrades only under certains conditions of pressure and temperature (hight pressure and high temperature, like in an industrial compost environement)
    You could print it in ABS, warping is ok for this part, but the stool is sturdy enough in PLA to withstand 110+kg. Cheap PLA is as cheap as cheap ABS. And PLA is bio-sourced and bio degradable.

We belive you can print whatever you want a long as it makes sense to you, to the society and to the environement.
