3D model description


This is a massive Print-in-place Chain. A friend ask me about the longest chain i can print-in-place and i redesign the chain i've used for Tow Walker making an spiral that fills all the bed.

The pictures are from a 800 links chain (almost 6 meters long) but i uploaded a few files files from 200 links (1.5 meters) (120x120 mms) up to 1500 links (11 meters!!) (285x285 mms) that should fit on most of printers. (see below for more info about chain sizes)

Updated 5/28/2018: Added a 70 links chain
Updated 6/20/2018: Added a 2400 links chain +- 18 Meters!!!! (compressed in ZIP file)!!! 383x389 mms, suitable for 400x400mms beds

Each link adds +-7.6 mms to chain length

This is not an easy print, you need a good bed leveling/adhesion and a good retraction settings but nothing specially difficult.

You may need 'repair' the chain if some links are broken. You can do easily with a cutter and superglue .Cutting, joining and gluing.

Hope you like it!!

Have fun!!

0.15 mms


Doesn´t matter

Used Tape+Hairspray for a strong bed adhesion, 3 perimeters, 3 tops/bottoms and .15 mms layer.

How I Designed This
Many file conversions....

Link designed using 123DDesign, convert to OBJ low poly version using 3DBuilder, generate the spiral and exporting to DXF using Processing and finally using ABViewer (Trial version) to conver DXF to STL.
