Lego jousting; fun!

I printed the saddle but upscaled it by 1.05 and printed it with the LEGO nubs up. It made a little mess underneath which was easy to clean up and the LEGO figure sits on it nicely. It's like a little rodeo he hangs on for a few minutes then falls off after a while. My kids are loving it.

Printed one with a DC motor MK5 and support material. LEGO dude barely hangs on, but it works!

I can't generate G-code for this STL.

LucidOne on Feb 24, 2011 said:

It uploaded to Shapeways fine, so it should be manifold.

What are you using to generate the g-code?
Which orientation are you trying?
