Today’s Functional Print: Cootie Eyes

In today’s “is he posting about Cootie again?” news, I’ve printed replacement eyes for our Cootie game. The eyes are tiny and get lost really easily, so they are a natural candidate for replenishment.

These eyes are so small that I had to dial the print speed down to 3 millimeters per second (from 30 mm/s) so that plastic would have time to cool before the next layer was added and so the motion of the printer didn’t tip over the eye as it printed the top of the peg.
