3D model description

“On a field, sable, the letter A, gules.” The Scarlet Letter is always dramatic. I made this WordCloud of The Scarlet Letter using Mathematica by Wolfram Research. The sizes of the words are related to their frequencies within the novel. Print this with two colors or with one and enjoy how the words bring forth themes and emotions from the story.

Bonus! Stand included for display.

The 4th photo is a screenshot of the WordCloud in Mathematica before creating the STL files and doing some minor edits in Simplify3D.

Also see my Pride and Prejudice WordCloud and Star Wars WordCloud.

This was printed with my Palette because I wanted it as large as possible on my MakerGear M3-ID. It could be printed using single extrusion and a pause for a color change.

3D printing settings

Base plate is approximately 196 x 196 x 3 mm. The words and “A” together approximately 190 x 190 x 8 mm. Printed with 0.3 mm layer height. No supports. No raft.

The stand prints on its side with no supports. I used a raft to help it stick to the print bed.

I used Simplify3D to help finalize the design.

Stand design was inspired by Photographic Plate Stand on Thingiverse.

I am a high school math teacher and 3D printing hobbyist. I have been 3D printing since 2017 and enjoy making things for my classes and my own children and home in San Diego, California, USA.

I design with Mathematica, CorelDRAW, Fusion 360, and Tinkercad. I love my MakerGear M3-ID and my Palette 2S Pro. I have a Prusa MK3S as well. I started a 3D printing sub-site, but it needs some updating.
