Hello,

Interesting model, thank you for sharing. Unfortunately I was not able to slice the model using Prusa Slicer 2.1, I got this error.
Tried with different layer height (0.05 to 0.2), different positions. Printer: Prusa MK3S + MMU2S
Any suggestions?

Can you share the openscad file you used? I wanted to see the normal torus with the hexagonal grid applied and see what I could do with it. Thanks!

Done, it's file torus_hexagonal_grid.scad! Attached here too, hope you find it useful. I see coordinates are hardcoded, surely I calculated it with a Python script, but it's nowhere to be found.

thanks for the work you put into this it really shows as this is a really cool peice

I am sorry, I have no printer so I had to order a print online, I have no clue about the exact details on what they use. Nevertheless, please share if you make one!

very interesting. how did you print this? what type of printer and what filament? I was thinking of printing it in clear filament.
