Design Interrupted and Meat & Bone Trays...



A few images of a set of small, FDM made, trays that all take advantage of some of the particular idiosyncrasies affiliated with the FDM process... Here the Meat & Bone technique (where the usually removed support structures are allowed to become an inherent part of the final design), as well as the Design Interrupted method (in which the digital file of the design is modeled with a stretch of extra, residual, build in the Z axis to allow the model to appear and work as a completed piece once interrupted mid-build), have both been used and even combined in their realization...  

All the included designs fit within the roughly 20 X 20 by 20 centimeter build frame of the FDM machine we have access to...
