There is a Gazebo / Bandstand at our County Courthose that is used for festivals like the Fire and Ice (Hot Chili and Ice carvings), Saturday morning Farmer's Market, Veteran's Day Services, and Christmas Caroling. Just about an all purpose small town meeting place. So with that in mind, I thought I'd give it a bit of a try. I've been drawing and testing the 3D printer with some 'play around objects'. I was trying some new ladders, and a slight mishap occurred. I didn't have the lower surface hot enough, and the plastic snagged a little weird. I tried repeating the error, and could not replicate it. So, I 'drew' another one up with the CAD program. (I know, I read the letter to the editor column in RMC with the guy complaining about having to stop being a dinosaur and learn something new.) Anyway, I came up with this.
The slanted bars are 1 mm wide, the spaces are 2 mm wide, and it's 8 mm high. Approximately 28" in HO scale.





So I flipped the other side around and saw what a lattice might look like. The printed boards are .2 mm thick which is fairly close to a 1 X 4. Close enough for me. So it didn't look too bad. A 10 footer for sure!





So I drew up and printed a 20 foot stage as a start for the floor




The posts will need to support the roof and upper area so I placed the holes in the base and the floor (CAD thing again ).




In typical BurleyJim jumping the gun fashion, I started putting the upper section together to get a feel for what I'd be dealing with.










I've got some trimming to do!

It appears to be a great start at a Gazebo/Bandstand, and it sure looks like latticework to me. Good call Jim!

Lou, thanks for checking it out. The lattice being so thin is difficult to handle. Those 'wild hairs' are about .0004 inch, and a &*^% to try and grab.
Tom, thanks for looking.
Frank, now you'll be asking where the speaker will be at.
Jerry, It'll be a good stopping spot for those tired Machine shop workers.
Carl, Appreciate you following along.

Thanks George,

The lattice boards are giving me a hard time on the printer. I think my plastic filament is a little too stale, and it starts sliding around under the 'business end' of the printer. Once that happens, that piece is garbage. So, I'm printing some thicker pieces right now. Your Cricut wants thinner, and the printer wants thicker, gotta love these machines.

Jim, this may be a dumb idea, but would a hair drier passed over the lattice work met those hairs, like a hair drier melts hot wax gun remains, after using a hot wax gun????

Lou, I'm printing ABS plastic at 240C (464F), Might be a little too hot for a hair drier. Definitely a little to hot to hand hold during that. Good old #11 on cold ABS works pretty good. But not a bad idea. The PLA material(algae based stuff) prints at about half those temps, but is brittle, and water soluble (not good in a damp basement.)
