Robohamster - Printable by MacGyver Aug 26, 2012


I think if a model is featured it should be printable.
I love seeing the cool things that are featured.
However, I'm frequently disappointed when I can't actually print them.
I've modified this thing so you might actually be able to print it.

Tolerances are a b word:

I will need a measurement so I can adjust the head socket, or I can go ahead and reattach the head using meshmasher.

TBH, I'm not great with it, hence no upload, but i'll give it a shot.

That would probably work. The other problem I had was that the head didn't fit into the body. I think whoever designed it meant the head to made from rubber or something pliable. Go ahead and make a derivative my modeling skills are not so good.

what if you partially filled in the 'stilt blades'?

I'm sure that would resolve most of the issues...

Can you do that, or should I make a derivative?

Print all three parts glue together and enjoy.

Warning! I'm in the process of printing this unprintable thing so you may expect the files to change.

I printed it but the legs are way too brittle to be of any use and the head won't fit into the body unless you sand off the little lip at the bottom of it.

I tried to print it but it was a miserable failure at least for the legs anyway.
