This week we encountered a new parameter of 3d printing our prospective objects: time constraints. The time constraint of 9 hours of total printing time definitely is not workable for some projects, including mine. Printing one sheet of my fabric takes roughly four hours and produces about 5 square inches of chainmail which is unfortunately not anywhere near the amount that it will take to cover 1/4 of my model’s torso. While this time parameter is frustrating i think it is a healthy reminder that part of design is an art form characterized by constraints and running into constant obstacles that hinder the ability to produce a final product. I am content with the notion that my piece may not be fully formed by the end of week 10, however the potential is there.
