3D Printing Post Series: The Eiffel Tower!

Being one of the most famous landmarks in the world, the Eiffel Tower is an incredibly popular model to 3D print. Tons of famous designers have attempted to recreate the remarkable structure as an STL file, yet all of these models had been too complex for my past slicer (Cura) to slice. This bothered me for quite a while, as I had always wanted to print this model (it looks awesome!). However, my slicer had been limiting my creativity 😦 This changed the moment I purchased Simplify3D. As soon as I got my settings relatively dialed in on this slicer, I sliced the model (in seconds) with Simplify3D. I was ecstatic, as I could finally print the Eiffel Tower for myself! It turned out quite nicely, with only a few misprints on the smaller pieces.  And as they would say in France, “Le modèle complexe est superbe!”
