This is the most complex model in the bridge series (Free bridge files available here) and serves as an exploration of an unconventional way to design for 3d printing. The goal was to intentionally create unsupported bridges during the 3d modeling (CAD) process, so the printer would have to print in midair to create a cool visual effect. This was a project that reminded me how important experimentation is to the creative process.
This download includes the Bridge Tree 3d printable model that use the bridge technique to create interesting visual effects. It also includes an adaptor so it can be attached to the fuzzy tree base and rotated mechanically!
Keep in mind that these models were designed specifically for 0.48mm extrusion widths and 0.2mm layer thickness and may not work with other settings!

**All the files have been pre-oriented to save you some set up time! All you need to do is drop the parts into your slicer and hit print! This download includes pre-arranged layouts for 205x205 (or larger) beds for easier printing!
