Fix that drift!
What's amazing about this is the tensile strength of the HDPE laid down in this slipshod manner. There is only a single thread of 0.8 mm HDPE making up that perimeter and the +/- ends of the x side of the print are sort of dare-me-and-I-do.
In spite of that I can NOT tear that flimsy looking thing apart with my hands. Mind, I have very strong hands, too.
Anyway, nothing serious. Just thought you all might like a laugh and a look at what REAL R&D looks like most times. :-D
But yeah, it was about 45 degrees, give or take a little bit.
I'm a little underwhelmed at present with the whole "we can make 45 degree overhangs" notion. I might change my mind when I've had about another 100 hours of printing exercises. :-)
Apparently, you can't do that with a Stratasys.
