A half sized version (53.43mm high) reduced, and it can now be sliced in Slic3r (tested V0.7.2b)

It's also tilted back 5 degrees to hopefully make it print better - less overhang.


Proposed as the model to be used in the weekly 3D printing competition for 28th May 2012 - started by RepRapBCN - see here - http://bit.ly/L6bE32

Competition rules -

You need to print it 100% size (53.43mm high)

The proposed rules from RepRapBCN are as follows:

  1. The model is proposed on Saturday (thinginverse, dropbox ...). It is very important to indicate the scale and the minimum layer height allowed.
  2. During the week people make models, post photographs of the finish part and explain the settings used.
  3. Only DIY machines can be used. Anyway, if anyone wants to make them with other machines (SLA, SLS, Objet, Stratasys...) just to compare can be fine!
  4. On Friday at 23:59 GMT 0 the game is over.
  5. During saturday the person who won last week chooses the new winner.
  6. The new winner repeat step 1 in the same thread.

If anyone thing we could modify the rules to make it better, please post of the RepRap Forum.

Printed her scaled up to about 65mm tall on the Rep 2, .25 resolution on medium quality in Makerware, and she printed nicely! I used supports, but they were not needed. Thanks!

Printed one at 1.6 scale, 0.05mm layer height with my modded SeeMeCNC H-1 : 12 hours print !

Nice, give it a try at 100% size, it's tricky to get all the features out.

Do prints from am ultimaker count?

I think so, it's still a DIY machine as you have to build it yourself :)

For anyone interested in the competition, please note that the hyperlink misses the thread number following the comma. It works if you copy the link with the number and paste into your web browser.

Thingiverse does not like the comma, if you know what to do to the link to make it include it, let me know and I'll edit it.

Use tiny URL

Thanks, I really should have thought of that!

Anybody mind if I just include this STL back into the original? As stated, it would be nice for those with slic3r to be able to slice, and perhaps less confusing if they don't have to find a different 'thing."

The only way I could get it to work in Slic3r was by reducing the number of faces so you may want to keep the original for Skeinforge and large printing etc.

It's a good idea to have the original thing include both of them, this half sized version has a simplified mesh, should not make any difference to the quality printed at this smaller size.
