Robot Schmobot

My homage to Robbie Not a 100% accurate model, but I wanted a single print using FFF that captures the spirit of the Robbie. This should still capture him even when printed small

This is a print where support would fix this issue. I have been able to get away with no support on my printer. I would recommend trying meshmixer for supports (it is free software). meshmixer allows you to customize the supports a bit which is nice.

not knowing your setup is difficult to give specific settings recommendations. typically the support generation is a function of the slicing software (printer path generation software). look for a 'use support' or something similar.

Hi, this is the first non-flat design we've printed. He looks super, except that under his hands, the print looks a little stringy. Any guidance on what I might need to do settings-wise so that doesn't happen again?

Thanks for a fun design!

 Yeah, I meant bend a paperclip into a hoop with a stick extending from it.

OK,,, I printed at 0% infill 2 shells at those settings it did have a few gaps i fill them in with abs/acetone goop (see pics on machine you can see the gaps on the laptop is after the 'cleanup')

I did a second test using 10% infill and it significantly reduced the holes (still small ones on the top)

no support is needed

I have loved robbie since i was a child and first saw him on a guest appearance on Lost in space, and then later in forbidden planet. He is the best robot ever!

Where is the antenna and stuff?

Like i said, "Not a 100% accurate model,

but I wanted a single print using FFF that captures the spirit of the Robbie."

Looks good I must say. :)

 thanks, I know it was a compromised design, but I wanted something I could print as a oneshot (no gluing, no removing support) if you want antennae i would suggest the following. take a paperclip bend it into one and heat the pointy side and poke it thru and it should hold (might need glue) that would make a really solid antenna) and it would be much stronger than ABS or PLA

Lets not forget the round hoop at the end of that.

Danger Danger ... infill required Will Robinson...

 I get away without infill but I have to do some minor post printing touch up. It really depends on what you prefer. Infill is going to make it have smaller holes.
