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:

You should really consider signing up for the google group if you're not already.

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.)
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.
Here you go! Each paw measures 25 mm or 1 inch if you are like that. My phone really doesn't like the "Fire Truck Red" PLA. I'll give it another go when I get more plastic and finish the parts for a Prusa Mendel for a friend. I am thinking of going full out and making it 210mm long 8-)
That's so cool. Did the rest of it print? Is the fail only in that middle part or did you cancel it before it got to the eyeballs and tooth?

Still, so cool.
The top broke loose when it was starting work on the head. The garbled 5 mm in the middle gave way. I spared you the ghastly sight of its headless neck, not a pretty sight at all. But the best thing about having a printer is that I can just print a new one. So I'll do just that but it seems it will have to be in transparent PLA, I really need to order some more! Like I said below, we need to get you one, and I don't mind making one for you if it comes to that.

Do you think it is possible to separate out the eyes, tooth and possibly horns from the model? This might make it possible to print with two different colors and glue together. It's too tiny to do on the small version but could be nice on the 200% version. What do you think?
oh, this is too much awesome! i can't wait to go home and print this alot.
Have you thought about using Shapeways? I'm tempted to try and make alot of ceramic for $16.

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 :)
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.

From her FAQ:

s your work copyrighted? Can I repost it?

My stories and drawings are copyrighted, but as long as you attribute your use of my images/words correctly (with a link to the source of the material), it should be fine. But please don't completely repost anything (that's such a gray area and it has
worked out horribly for me in the past). Problems only arise when you use my work in a way that suggests you're trying to pass it off as your own. I work very hard to create these posts and it hurts my livelihood when my work is reposted without credit (websites like funnyjunk.com are horrible abou
t this.) Plagiarism always hurts the artist.

So seems okay to use.
I checked her page and sadly it's quite clear on "No derivatives". The link is on the right hand side, under Copyright.

But like MtDon says, an email might do the trick, can't hurt to ask?
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.
This is great. I'll definitely print one as soon as I get a chance. :-D
Someone seriously needs to buy you a printer. Do you have a hackerspace near you?
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. ;)
Great work! I just finished mine! I have the code primed for a 200% size version that I think is going to be alot better than the first one! Thanks for sharing, I (we) really appreciate it. We should send you alot perhaps? I would be happy to print you one but it seems a bit silly to ship it from Sweden so I am going out on a limb and calling for someone closer to Utah to send this man alot!
I like his expression :-D
I tried to hurp it but it durped.
It's definitely more on the durp side of the force.
