Lol, the shorty iris base took me 3 hours 38 mins to print. I can't imagine printing the larger one.

Well, I like it.

4h of printing is not much. You get used to the long times. ;)

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

Anyone want to buy this printed on an UP
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.

Anyone know if these are based on the V2 files of the original ?

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

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...

Nice No sanding required for this one. Uses much much less material now too!

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.

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.

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.

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.

labmat, did you have to scale it down to fit on the makerbot?

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.

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.

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