Suncatchers by Aptilite

Aptilite makes 3D printed suncatchers from PLA plastic which is compostable. They are should be kept away from heat and flame and are not dishwasher safe. All of these suncatchers are roughly 6 to 9 inches in diameter and are available in a variety of different colors.

Our suncatchers have been made using an unconventional and time consuming process. The instructions used by the 3D printer have all been mathematically generated using trigonometry, geometry, and algebra in a spreadsheet and are made from one continuous bead of extruded plastic whose shape is determined by the formulas in the spreadsheet. Because they don't use standard CAD/Slicer technology, these suncatchers will surprise anyone familiar with 3D printing.

The availability of colors depends on the filament we can purchase. The marketplace for 3D printing supplies is very dynamic and our ability to get additional product in a particular color is sometimes limited.
