The most latest project by Alfred is not pretty simple but quite useful yet stylish. It is those mesh screens which have been created out of 3D printer with the help of Slic3r. These mesh screens can be used in many different projects and give a good aesthetic appeal.
What is the Procedure?
First of all, you will have to design the main outline of the mesh in any shape you want. Now you can extrude the shape in positive Z direction by one layer height, and Alfred has made it 1.5 mm which is around 4 layers. Alfred loaded .stl file into slic3r and also uses the support material settings in order to change Pattern to honeycomb. You may adjust the spacing between the pattern to any diameter you want. After that the “Fill density” is set to o so the actual mass of the object will not be printed out.
So if you want to get this mesh screen, all you need to do is export your model to gcode and start printing. You printer will print you with a nice honeycomb mesh of support material behind. One point which should always be kept in mind is that you must only use Slic3r 0.9.8 for this printing. Anything above than that will not be appropriate for you.
You can also take help from Alfred Tutorial to guide you about that in detail.
