A skinless #3DBenchy


Some slicing programs allow for advanced experimental settings. One such is Simplify3D in which we, just for the fun of testing, 3D-printed a #3DBenchy with zero outer layers – such as follows:

  • Perimeters (shells): 0
  • Top solid layers: 0
  • Bottom solid layers: 0
  • Infill: 25%

In other words, the slicer made a print file that just prints the infill and no layers. Surprisingly the model printed quite well.
