Alot of plastic by cymon Feb 11, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

The alot is a creation of Allie Brosh. If you're unfamiliar with the alot here's her explination:
hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html

The 3D Artist contest asked "what monster would you like to have in your pocket." I would like to have alot in my pocket. Then take it out, put it on my noggin, and tell everyone I have alot on my mind. You can print alot with your 3D printer. You can give alot to your friends. Alot!

EDIT: V2 features more hurp, more durp, and most importantly more a visible tooth on a better lip. Recomend using V2.

I eventually got this to print properly. There was something funky in my SF settings. Starting from scratch with SF is sometimes the best option.

Hey txoof,

I printed mine yesterday, also with RepG 0034, Skeinforge 35, on a Thing-O-Matic with Plastruder Mk 5. Left all settings at default and got a great print. What isn't working out for you?

I made this model hoping to win a 3D printer. I didn't. So I have no idea how to help you. But I've started a thread on the thingiverse google group so hopefully someone will be able to help you here:

Instructions

I don't have a 3D printer so I hope everything will work. I tried to design it to print without supports. Still, I'll mark it work in progress until I get feedback that it works.

If you like this alot please consider helping me out by printing and providing feedback for some of my other designs as well.

I'm having problems printing this without100% infil. It seems no matter what I specify for the infill, I end up with a form that's 100% filled in. This is living up to it's name: ALOT of plastic!

Any suggestions as to why this is happening?

RepG 34, SF 35

I scaled it in replicatorg and printed it at 200% size and the details are much clearer! You could say that a bigger Alot is alot better. I can really recommend you to try it. (No pic due to a fatal filament roll snag mid print.)

cymon on Feb 16, 2012 said:

So what you're saying is "alot bigger is alot better."

Post a picture anyways. I'd love to see those high detail toe nails.

Have you thought about using Shapeways? I'm tempted to try and make alot of ceramic for $16.

cymon on Feb 14, 2012 said:

As long as you don't make it public and try to sell copies I say go for it.

awesome, I love waking up and finding something I just need to have RIGHT NOW :)

cyclone on Feb 12, 2012 said:

I'm going to print this Alot. :)

Legally I think it may be arguable either way, but I'll bet she'd approve. I'll send her an email in fact.

I sure hope you got Ms Brosh's permission, or the copyright monster might bite you alot.

between you and Andreas I'm going to have quite a collection or monsters.

This looks like it should print well, it doesn't have bad overhangs.

kellesabelle on Feb 11, 2012 said:

This is great. I'll definitely print one as soon as I get a chance. :-D

pogden on Feb 11, 2012 said:

Someone seriously needs to buy you a printer. Do you have a hackerspace near you?

cymon on Feb 11, 2012 said:

There is a Provo Utah hackerspace but it's tough for me to get to and difficult for me to afford the membership fees to. That is why I'll be entering every contest I can. Until I win one. Who knows, maybe the 3D Artist Magizine guys will agree with you this time. ;)
