HI, what's the liquid on the last picture ? Is it some sort of resin to make it smooth ?
Nice design.

Hi Kumy, thank you for the kind words. The liquid in the photo is a light-sensitive resin. To print this item, you need a high resolution printer, for its smoothness and for the antennae. High resolution printers work by shining light on a liquid resin to create a solid layer. B9Creator is the best high-resolution, resin printer in the consumer price range.

Thx, didn't knew about B9Creator.

I wanted to slice the butterfly with slice3r but it won't slice, it just takes over my pc for half a day and wont do anything anyway. Do you have a succesfull SVG file?
I would like to try it very much because my wife thinks its cute:)

as I use a printer with a different technology, I haven't generated the G-code, yet. However, if you tell me all the input settings for G-code slicer programs, I will try to slice it for you and upload the G-code and message you, when I succeed.

Hi Gavi,
I restarted my computer and I left it overnight to slice and finally something got sliced! I'm trying to print now, but I just saw that by mistake I had it on 50% reduction, so it probably won't be nice. Which program do you use to make the supports? For now, I only printed things without supports, but I see that it would extend the possibilities enormously.
