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

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

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

 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

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!

 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.
