Tentacle generator

3D model description

Hi!

This one is as simple as beautiful.

Configure some parameters and get a kind of tentacled-star-or-something.

Bottom is flat, designed for sticking on walls, windows, or using a magnet for firdges.

Just a decoration element with many variations.

Included some STL from testing

Hope you enjoy it.

Have fun!

3D printing settings

Printer:

BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos

Rafts:

Doesn't Matter

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.2 or less

Infill:

Doesn´t matter

Notes:
Tested with PLA at 0.2 resolution

Easy print, no supports, infill not needed (but recomended to avoid problems with top layers

Hint: Print twice (one mirrored) ang glue it. So you can make a full-volume tentacle.

Looks great when printed big !!
A note for programmers
I use little programs like this when teaching recursion to my students. Fibonacci typical example sucks, really don't show the power of recursive algorithms.

For programmers can be a good starting point to develop recursive algorithms. Code is short and simple. Feel free to reuse, modify or do what you want with code.
