The files below contain an assortment of commonly used STEMFIE construction set parts in different sizes which are nested into compact build plates measuring less than 140 x 140 x 140 mm (5 ½ inches squared). These files will fit comfortably in most 3D-printers' build volume.
3D-printing these build plates is a quick way to make the most essential components for building your STEMFIE projects. Start by importing this file into your 3D-printer's software. All components are oriented to 3D-print optimally without support structures. Please make sure to have a flat, clean build plate and calibrate it well.
If you are using a filament-based 3D-printer (FDM/FFF), the following settings are recommended for making STEMFIE parts.
- Material: PLA filament
- Layer height: 0.2 mm
- Perimeters (shells): 2
- Top solid layer count: 4
- Bottom solid layer count: 3
- Infill: 15%
- Generic print speed: 50 mm/s
