Well, I like it.

4h of printing is not much. You get used to the long times. ;)
Lol, the shorty iris base took me 3 hours 38 mins to print. I can't imagine printing the larger one.
I used Netfabb Basic to flip it 180 like the V2 model. Not printed yet, my bed sngs broke on me (printed PLA doesn't flax so well :) ) but I will.

<p>Mine printed well but needs some tuning. Do we expect the shutters to rotate on the bolts / filament, or does the whole bolt spin?</p>

<p>Anyone want to buy this printed on an UP<br>‽<br>I scaled it to 78% to fit my DWex but it turned out too small. I printed the parts but haven't removed all the support material. If interested, hit me at m at teamteamusa.</p>

<p>Anyone know if these are based on the V2 files of the original ?</p>

<p>V2</p>

<p>Can someone make a video for this? i want to see how well it works</p>

<p>msruggles do you think you could point me in the right direction for modeling things with gears? I'm working on an ipad pinball machine but it's getting a bit hairy...</p>

<p>Nice No sanding required for this one. Uses much much less material now too!</p>

<p>Any chance we can get step files, I just need a way to open the files in Autodesk Inventor. It will save stl just not open.</p>

<p>I don't thin the Base is printable on a makerbot. The base has an indentation on the bottom, and I don't think it will print upside down. I would suggest getting rid of the indentation on the bottom, if it is not needed.</p>

<p>I used Netfabb Basic to flip it 180 like the V2 model. Not printed yet, my bed sngs broke on me (printed PLA doesn't flax so well :) ) but I will.</p>

<p>I can assure you the base is printable because I have printed it. If I was going to do it again I would turn on support because the bottom did dip a small amount in the middle but not enough to be concerned.</p>

<p>labmat, did you have to scale it down to fit on the makerbot?</p>

<p>It's the same base (except shorter) as the Iris Box. It looks like others have printed it without difficulty. Can anyone attest to this? If not I'll change it.</p>

<p>It def is printable on the MakerBot. I have yet to have a complete successful print (nozzle keeps knocking into things!), but have def gotten past the bottom on every try.</p>

<p>Hmmmmm, I will try it out then. I figured it would sag down a little, but I will see what happens.</p>
