WIN the 3D Printed Throne

The excitement for the final season of GOT has bubbled over at the DASI offices so we decided to share the fun with a CONTEST: Winner takes the (3D printed) Throne!

3D Printed Throne Contest: How to Enter

To be qualified for entry participants must:

We will announce a winner Monday, May 13th.

Bringing DASI’s 3D printed throne to life started on Thingiverse.com, one of the most widely used sites for sharing 3D design files. Searching for a throne turned up Iron thrones with a range of purposes including holding business cards and charging phones.

Once we selected our model (Designed by Revennant) we sent it to DASI’s 3D printing lab and let the experts bring the design to life.

3D print technician, Vincent Davis set up the build, “We selected the Fortus 400mc printer because it allowed us to determine the interior style of the part (solid, sparse, double sparse.)” 

The throne is made of ABS- M30, a  durable , heat resistance material. “ABS-M30 is ideal for concept models and moderate requirement parts like functional prototypes, jigs, tools and production parts.” explained Vincent.
Layer bonding on the FDM printer with ABS-M30 provided extra strength to our throne.

 

The build took 11 hours to complete. Support material was printed around the finer details and protruding parts to ensure a detailed final product.

The support material was removed by placing the part in our powered Cleanstation in a solution of Sodium Hydroxide. This dissolves the soluble support material.

And we get the finished product! A 3D throne fit for a King.
