Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video The final printed object, part of Creating a Captive Sphere with OpenSCAD.
(printer whirring)…- As we start to print, you can see how…flattening off the base of the sphere has given it…a good solid base that it can build on.…(printer whirring)…You can see how even though the sphere is spreading out from…the bottom, it's still adhering firmly to the print bed.…With the print now well underway,…you can see the shape of the sphere.…And here is the finished object.…
The captive sphere sits inside…the hollowed-out cube perfectly.…No matter how much you shake it…or rattle it, it can never fall out.…This object could have only been created using 3D printing.…And using OpenSCAD, we're able to…creat it using just 10 lines of code.…
