Model Printing Instructions
To print this model using the Makerbot Replicator (5th gen.), use the following settings: Raft: yes Support: no; Layer height: 0.1 mm Infill: 20% *Print setting may need to be adjusted based on your specific printer and print material. If using a multicolor printer, you can use the *.amf file to print in color. Otherwise, the model can be printed in a single color and painted. You can instruct students to paint the models as an assignment, or paint them to set up for the assignment. I use Testors Enamel paints and allow ample time for drying. Print the Prokaryotic cell file with the holes if you wish to glue in pipe cleaners for flexible fimbriae and flagella.
