This design exploration hacks traditional methods of 3D Printing to create non-traditional prints with Dremel 3D Printers. Using C# in Grasshopper, we generated custom GCode that outputs a printed object that is built not only by the extrusion of the material, but also from the dragging that occurs when the printer moves from point to point. Our design process began by exploring simple ways of extrusion, and outputs when certain parameters were altered bit by bit, and culminated in hair like structures that were parametrically generated.
