Gnarly Trees With Canopies

      Really enjoying the trees from the Clorehaven Kickstarter so far. Figured I’d share the result and the way I painted them.

      All parts were printed on a Voron 2 in ABS using a .4mm nozzle in .2 layer height.
      After a coat of black primer the light values and highlights were established with white ink. A series of transparent yellow and green inks was used to tint the foliage. Raw umber ink and a grey was used for the trees. Airbrushing with inks is still new to me but I’m happy with the results and speed of the method.

      I am starting my first print of these. Are the canopies meant to be glued on once printed, or do they stay well enough that they could be removed to make a leafless tree without printing another base tree?

      The canopies are meant to be glued once printed as they branches form a dome underneath.

      Hello I bought the file, the trees are very beautiful …
      I have only one success with the file canopy 2, in spite of several attempts, my printer tears off one of the feet of the departure, result: printing impossible ….
      Please send me the PLA parameters if you have them, thank you.

      I printed all canopies using Raft as adhesion, no one has lift form bed, also I using sugar with water as glue to bed. My problem is to print the trees, the branches use a lot of retraction and some point of the print the nozzle hit the branch make the tree broken. which option you use to print, now I used 0,2mm, shell 0,8mm and speed 50mm/s.

      I use hairspray for my adhesion, tends to work alright. Sometimes i have had to change the fill or shell depth on certain sections to increase the strength of the sections.
