I had my heat gun set to 300c and applied heat to the two parts that sit in the torso and compressed them together slightly to give it a tighter hold on the center bar on the chest. I have since modded the model so it prints the gap smaller.
my print did the same thing. i have an excellent quality print all the pins worked amazing but the body just sits on the hips. how hot and how much did u bend it to make it work i love this model just want it all to fit proper
It's really easy to rotate things in Cura if you use that, I haven't used Slic3r much as I prefer Cura's output.

I just started printing this out, I'm up to the legs (done head, arms, hands and torso). Is it normal for the hips to be loose in the torso or was there an issue in my print?

Edit: It may of warped slightly during the print. I heated the middle with a heat gun and bent it the smallest of a degree and it fits nice and snug.

Hi.
I used the "Bigfig"data for my friend birthday present .
Thanks!
Hi, did you make this with a CAD SSoftware? can you upload a .stp file ? I want to try to make my own "version"Thank you
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!
so I can scale theese down to 25% and use them with my actual legos?
2 issues using makerware software, arm pins are facing wrong way and need to be rotated. trying out the hips now, had to use a raft for crotch area because it kept breaking free from platform, hoping the upper portion prints out ok with no supports
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.
Is this compatible with the holiday figures? meaning the hat.
Yes it is. So mix and match away
how fine should it printed? 0.1mm?
great work !! like it very much !
This one is printed at 0.2mm. You can print it finer, but it will take longer.
Awesome stuff, printing right now (at least the parts I still can fit in before I have to leave the printer until sunday ;))
Note: I had to rotate the arm pin stl as it was uploaded with the 2 pins vertically stacked. (I am using slic3r)
Any way you can possible point to how this is done.
I have everything printed but the pins and cannot manage to rotate them in slic3r?
Thanks.
It's really easy to rotate things in Cura if you use that, I haven't used Slic3r much as I prefer Cura's output.
Can you "split" them in slic3r? If not I must have used meshlab to rotate and export them (it's free).
You can split them.
According to their help files you can only rotate about the Z axis.
I downloaded meshlab and actually pulled them into Solidworks and cannot do anything with the STL, since it is not a solid.
I will try meshlab... thanks for the response!
Can someone repost the arm_pin.stl file with them horizontal? I am using KISSlicer and I can't seem to find a way to do that. Thanks very much in advance.
Print is in the works, looking great so far.
This is by far the best snap fit thing I have printed yet. The pins worked perfect first try, even in my less-than-perfect PLA settings. Cant wait to start on the accessories. Nice work!
"hold on to you butts"
Can we expect to see a Samuel L Jackson minifig (I hope I hope I hope)
Not even sure what that would even be. :-)

Good to see you posting stuff again. Excellent job as always.
Jaw dropping amazing. Seriously awesome work on this and the kit that goes with it.
I can envision LOTS of people making this. Thanks for publishing!
