The Nozzle Dance
Sculpting 3D- Prints with G-code
The experimentation with G-code begins with the aim of replicating the radiant gradient reminiscent of emitted light shades. This is achieved by incorporating input variables like layer thickness and the frequency of rotations.
Through the manipulation of the base curves using axial movements and rotations, we successfully generated a gradient effect that becomes apparent along the Z-axis.
In our continued exploration of G-code’s potential, we conducted tests involving two different feed rates in incremental steps, experimented with rotating basic curves around various center points, and explored the use of diverse basic curve shapes.
