Decimated down to ~200k polys
Cleaned up bad polys at the base
Merged the eyes with the head (separate meshes were confusing some slicers)

so In general when you print this is it hollow? I want to stick a light on the inside and use clear filament so it looks lit up in green. also for someone who is better at building then me could someone create a separate base it can sit on? I want to add a phrase which I can do later if I have a base.

The model is solid which means that it entirely depends on your printer settings. Most printers will leave the inside ~80% hollow so it would be quite easy to hollow it out from the bottom and stick a light inside :) Your printer settings will also control how thick the shell is and thus how bright the light will appear from the outside.

How did you create the model?


what is the best kind of infil to print tthis? i mean to use as little of filament as possible? is it possible to print this hollow but with more perimeters?

Jepp, printed fine with 3 shells and no infill and no support. Amazing.

MedGL - in reply to Jaknil

Likewise Jaknil, just followed your advice on a Z18 and it printed great.

Printed Yoda, I did.

.2mm layers looks very good. I am trying another print at .1mm. 8-)

Looks great! Gotta order me some green ABS. Red's looking good too.

Thanks! This is my first print with ProtoParadigm green.

The perfect use for nuclear green ABS.

When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not. Hmm?

Is this much different from the existing thing Yoda Lite?


Yoda - Lite

Yes; my preferred slicers (KISSlicer and Skeinforge) both fail at slicing Yoda-Lite correctly. Specifically, they exhibit artifacts at the base as well as yucky transitions between eyeball and eyelid.

If Yoda or Yoda-Lite slice nicely for you in your choice of software then there is no need for the derivatives :)
