Sphere: 20 disks by Matt_3dmodel

Model Description
3D model of dennedesigns
The models were repaired and checked for printability.

The sphere is approximated by 20 very thin solid cylinders. This illustrates the...Show more disk method of finding the volume of the sphere, commonly found in a Calculus II course.

This model was designed and printed by my WLU summer research student Emily Jaekle ('16).

This object was made on a MakerBot2X. We used the following settings:
2 shells
0.20mm layer height
10% infill (hexagonal pattern)
color matched supports
raft off

We had some problems printing this shape, the first time the bottom disk came off. The second time it worked fine - we just needed to wait longer before removing it from the build bed.
