This is one of the best prints I've had in a long time! I was going to print one for my brother also, but I ran out of PLA. Too bad for him, I'm keeping mine!

Thanks!

Wow, this is awesome

just started the stand. It's going to take 4 hours. I'll put pics when I'm done; this is definitely my most ambitious print.

Great work! Next derivative will actually work ;-)

You exported the STL's as cm instead of mm!

humberto on Mar 3, 2013 said:

Ups. Actually it was meters, but not to worry, they are corrected to the mm scale now.

Bluemetal on Mar 2, 2013 said:

The scale of the STL's is completely off. The SketchUp file sets the height at 12 meters. I believe the STLs are coming out at that size too.

humberto on Mar 3, 2013 said:

Thanks for the warning, the current STLs are already adjusted (and tested) to be printed at 100% scale.

Netfabb repair did not work with the printable person. This must have been printed on a Chinese 3d printer. I have problems printing items made for the UP printer.

humberto on Mar 3, 2013 said:

Hi, RSkari, can you see if the files work now? I've corrected the scale problem. Cheers

RSkarl on Mar 1, 2013 said:

I was not able to load this with MakerWare or RepG. I used Netfabb studio free version to repair the file and now it loads. The scale was off i believe.

The Enrichment Center reminds you that leaping through books with portals will not transfer their contents into your primitive brain. If you humans actually wish to learn their contents, bring the books to the Employee Daycare Center and read them.
