Support works now!

I tried a print that was mostly support: a light switch plate with integrated hooks on it!  normally, you would say “why would a flat plate need support?”  Well, the hooks on the switch plate cover needed support.  And the switch plate was scalloped in a little bit, requiring the entire plate to need support underneath it.  Honestly, it’s probably just easier to show you guys pictures, so here you go!

 

So, now you can see why the print needed support!  It turned out super well!  The surface finish was better than I’ve had before, and the support peeled off cleanly!

And here’s the switch plate hanging on my wall and in use:

Stay tuned for some more projects, now that I can print things with support!
