Group Assignment – 3D Scanning and Printing

General objective (group assignment):


Group assignment:

  • Test the design rules for your 3D printer(s)
  • Document your work and explain what are the limits of your printer(s) (in a group or individually)
  • Document your work to the group work page and reflect on your individual page what you learned


Individual assignment:

  • Design and 3D print an object (small, few cm3, limited by printer time) that could not be easily made subtractively
  • 3D scan an object, try to prepare it for printing (and optionally print it)


GCC LaserPro Spirit GLS

Technical characteristics

• Print TechnologyFFF

• Print headSingle Nozzle

• Nozzle Diameter0.4mm

• Max Build size (WxDxH)210 x 200 x 195 mm

• MaterialSindoh Filament : PLA, ABS

Open Source Filament : PLA, ABS, ASA, PETG, etc

• Layer Thickness0.05 ~ 0.40 mm

• Filament Diameter1.75mm

• Size (W×D×H)421 × 433 × 439mm (16.5”x17”x17.2”)


For this assignment we use the all-in-one file from the page:   https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2656594/files

We place the object on the printing area of the machine

We assign the type of material that in this case we use PLA plastic, in addition to:

Box height: 0.20

nozzle temperature: 200 °C

bed temperature:60 °C

filling density: 15%

We assign the speed and quality of printing in addition to the placement of the support material

We send the file to print

As a conclusion, we observe that after 50° of inclination, the material begins to weaken, the holes are made correctly, but the tubes with thin walls lose a bit of quality. The thinner and taller posts lose quality and hardness.
