Conway's World #1: Towers

3D model description

Hi!

This is the first of some collections to come. It's about Conway's Game of Life.

The main goal in my mind was to obtain a 3D printable representation of the Conway´s automatons to show how ordered structures could emerge from a chaotic state just following simple rules. The result was some sort of weird architectural stuff.

Once developped a crappy software to run the concept i just can't stop generating and saving models. So i've upload 60 files ready to print!!!

60 STL's and their thumbnails included in ZIP files (see thumbnails below)

Nice for decoration or as scenery for tabletop games.

Generated procedurally using [Processing] (www.processing.org)

Easy to print, no supports required. See below for some printing tips.

Hope you like it.

Have fun!!

3D printing settings

Printer:

Creality CR 10

Rafts:

No

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.2

Infill:

Doesn´t matter

Notes:
Easy print, no supports and it works with any resolution. Scale as you wish (150% models looks great)

I print the models using 0% infill, 2 perimeters, 3 tops and 3 bottoms

To reduce number of retractions (and printing time) one single tip is using 0.2 or 0.3 mms of 'horizontal expansion' so the 'cubes' overlaps a bit and can print as a continous piece

Hi all! , I'm Fernando Jerez, computer science teacher, amateur designer and electronics noob.
Love procedural/generative stuff, robots, and all kind of 3D printable stuff.
Hope you enjoy my designs.
