Hey, Awesome model! Many thanks for sharing it here! I got a makerbot rep 2 last week and have printed 2 of these. I'm struggling to print the hip part well though, first print was exact position as per your file (w/supports and rafts), second time i rotated it so it was upside down flat on print base (w/supports and raft) - both times - after i've cleaned the supports off i've managed to snap the centre leg pin part off. It seems really weak the way i'm printing it.... these are my settings; infill 10, shells 2, layer 0.2. I'm really new to printing and no previous experience unit i got this last week, so apologies for the dull questions. Is there something obvious from these settings i'm doing wrong? should i beef up the infill? Is it essential to print this part with supports?
If anyone has printed this part with no probs on a Replicator 2; be great if you could let me know which settings you used, Thanks!
You will need to rotate the parts so the are oriented to print best on your equipment. In the case of a hobbyist FDM machine, that will mean rotating the pins so they are flat on the platform, and rotating the hips backwards so there flat surface is on the build plate. Look at your slicers documentation for instructions on how to rotate and position parts before printing.
