I've printed this in about 3-4 different sizes, and every stinking time, the arms come up while I'm removing the support structure. Printing the version with the small arms down with an Afinia H-series.
This was the first 3D model I've printed. The arms and back come out wonky, but I'm just glad I got my PC to finally print!

- 0.1mm - 0.2mm layer height
- 2 perimeters/walls/shells
Settings for arms down robot with supports:
- 0.1mm layer height (the supports needs to be printed at this layer height for them to snap off easily)
For those printing with Ulimakers, included is a recommended Cura profile.
Note for Slic3r users: Slic3r has trouble generating tool paths for the "M" on the chest and the MAKE logo on the back. Scaling up the part to 200% seems to fix this, but the robot will be larger. As always, check your gcode before you print! Here's a simple in-browser gcode viewer: buildlog.net/gview/index.html
