Description

This is my entry to the dragon contest..
I have made the suspended Loong dragon was made to be printed totally supportless.. the whole project was made using Autodesk Maya..
I also provided multiple version of the suspended model..

  1. Suspended dragon without text plate
  2. Suspended dragon with empty vertical plate on the side for custom wording
  3. Suspended dragon with empty horizontal plate on the bottom for custom wording

I've also used a new technique to add LED strip channel into the frame so no more printing 2 parts frame and joining them together..

but there is a catch to it.. you'll need to have a smooth surface for the led strip so the small leds wont get caught on the channel.. my advise is to use cellophane clear tape throughout the LED strip.. you will need 60cm of the LED strip.. i'm currently using 60led per meter LED strip for this project.. dont use the LED strip that has silicone coating on them as it will be hard to insert into the channel and it can easily get stuck due to its stickiness of the silicone..

 

This time i'm using addressable LED that you can control using bluetooth and custom made your own LED light animations.. which is so much cooler than just color LEDs..
If you're interested in getting the LED strips.. here's my affiliate link to buy it.. i brought the 1meter 60led IP30(non-waterproof)
Addressable Smart RGB LED Strip Bluetooth https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_EHjKISz

 

When printing suspended models.. one important thing to remember is to set the wall generator to arachne from classic.. this will make the slicer print the strings.. and NO SUPPORTS..

 

If you'd like to support me and my projects.. You can contribute here:

 

I hope you guys have fun printing my suspended dragon..

Great model! Strings were obviously a bit fragile. So when I dropped while putting the LEDs in, the dragon escaped. But some shaving and fishing line put him right back in place.

unfortunately it wont fit the mini.. i couldnt scale the dragon any smaller to fit into a A1 mini plate.. the dragon would loose its detail

The piece that goes on the nose failed. Everything else came out good.

Wery cool I think it will be more “light and airy” if the strings are placed not one on top of one, but shifted in a circle
