For the last year we have been using 3D printers to build a variety of sensors. Lately we have used Miicraft+ and here are some of the interesting fun structures we tried. Taipei 101 tower was printed by Engineer Hend Mkaouar  using the transparent resin BV-003.  To ensure the adherence of the model to the picker, the first three layers were printed for 20 seconds each. The rest of the layers were printed with a thickness of 50 microns for 10 seconds. The gap adjustment was adjusted at 0.1. After 10 hours of printing, we get a transparent 3D tower with a height of 145mm and a 22x22mm2 for the XY plane.
