3D model description

Sandcastles are such interesting creations. By combining sand and water, you are able to sculpt very intricate designs with simply your hands, a bucket, and a shovel.

Combining both man-made and organic elements, sand castles are beautiful sculptures. In my design, I chose to incorporate flowing spirals, smooth curves, rounded archways, and more to show how the beauty of nature can be harnessed to create interesting designs.

3D printing settings

Two versions of the sand castle are provided; one with rounded edges (for a more 'sculpted' appearance) and one without.

The main sandcastle needs supports. However, all of the other files (terrain and bucket parts) do not. It is recommended to print this object at the highest quality possible. For strength, there should be about 0.8mm of walls and at least 15% infill. The sand castle is designed to slot into the terrain at the size provided; any smaller and you might need more clearance between the two pieces.

This model was created for the #POLYMAKERCHALLENGE .

I enjoy brainstorming, designing, and creating 3D prints. I also love photography and design.
