I've been continuing my experiments with the "autobots" in Groboto. This thing ended up looking like an alien plant so I had to put it in a vase.


I used ReplicatorG on a MakerBot Replicator2 with the Replicator 2 slicing defaults and the following settings with white MB PLA:

Infill = 10%
Layer Height = 0.200

Shells = 1

Feedrate = 40
Travel Feed = 55
Temperature = 220

I used a raft with full support. ReplicatorG complained during the slicing but the build came out fine. The build took a little over 5 hrs.

nice print! i get sucked up in the bots of groboto for hours sometimes.

It's an interesting program. I find it a challenge simplifying the designs so they are printable.
