I think at the time I was using ReplicatorG for my slicing.

Slic3r Doesn't like this file for some reason, What did you use to slice it?

This was my son’s school project.  From an educational standpoint there were many cool features.

1.      He designed it in Minecraft.
2.      He took a video (using the free Jing app).
3.      He had to explain each component to everyone who
happened to wonder through his construction area in Minecraft. 
4.      He learned about 3D printing (and the file
conversions thereof).

I can see many areas for improvement, but as an initial creation by a youngster, I thought this was pretty impressive.  And I was hoping it would spark some interest by other parents to incorporate 3D technology in school projects.  The Minecraft-3D Print connection was a very
easy sell.
