I placed the parts closer to each other with QCAD and extruded it with Openscad.

I printed it in "traffic red" colour filament.

Tried this on my Replicator, but it messed up immediately and I had to abort the print.

Seems like they were overlapping each other. I may have mistakenly tried to accelerate this print.

I'm pretty new to 3D printing (finished building my makerbot last night) so forgive me if this is a dumb question, but I cannot get replicatorG to open the .stl file. I get a java.lang.NullPointerException error.

Any advice? I'd love to be able to print these awesome ornaments!

I get the error too. It is possible that a newer version of skeinforge does not have this problem, but I have not upgraded yet. The error seems to be caused by the object begin exactly on the z-plane. As a workaround I import the stl into blender(or any other 3D editor program), move the object up a random bit and export the object again. After this the stl opens fine in ReplicatorG. You do need to use the "move" and "put on platform" functions of ReplicatorG to put the object down again. This is not a pretty workaround, but it seems to work every time for me.

Thanks so much for the helpful advice (and I'm glad it wasn't just me)

I can slice it with skeinforge without problems.

Hey FarmGeek. I was going to say: Have you installed Java 1.5 or later? Go here: http://replicat.org/installationhttp://replicat.org/installati... and follow the installation instructions for your operating system.

But... I go the same error too. I hope this helps.

I'm glad you made a printable version, I don't have much temperance with that yet...

you beat me to it. do these ones have holes to thread ribbon/ fishing line through?

yeah, as the original

they look like they are missing the holes to hang. (in the antennas and top of the head)

Ah, now I see. I was under the impression that one hangs the space invaders with a wire or so through the square holes. Maybe the other dxf-file has those?
