Is the same model as the one from InnovationByLayer, except:

  • Dome was turned 90 degrees, so it lies flat "on the ground"
  • The centerleg was turned 180 degrees
  • legs and foots, body and dome were fixed

(centerfoot untouched, added for completeness)

Thanks go to InnovationByLayer for this great model!

Made with 3mm white ABS, 0.5mm nozzle on a Hugo.

Did you ever consider adding a small base to the head that has a smaller outer diameter than the inner diameter of the body so the head can move? Just an idea. It's simple enough that I may be able to do it myself, but I figured I'd suggest it first.

I small base would be great! BTW I don't understand what the advantage is to changing the files to print with the body tilted. I had problems with the bottom hollow section even though I used supports. I ended up reprinting the original body upside down from the original files by by InnovationByLayers (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11594). The second print of the body came out much better and did not need any supports. I printed at 50% scale in Cura.

Also, any suggestions for how to print the wires on the feet? Mine always seem to come out sloppy? Thanks in advance!

Are you guys printing this with or without support material?

The center foot seams to be missing or I'm missing something 

Nope, you're right. It worked out-of-the-box from the original post. I'll add it for completeness.
