Fedora for Keepon
by mifga, published
Keepon (and co-creator Marek Michalowski) visited the BotCave other day. A number of the MakerBot staff are big fans of Keepon so we started an internal challenge to create hats that can be printed with Marek's new Thing-O-Matic for Keepon. Here is my cluster of work-in-progress fedoras. Please feel free to make improved derivatives of my STLs in progress or wait for me to tune this up.
"My Keepon" is a $40 "toy" version of Marek and Hideki Kozima's Keepon robot. You can learn more about it here: beatbots.net/2011/01/31/my-keepon-from-wow-stuff/
Attached are Wings3D design files and STL outputs for a number of attempts I have made to create Indiana Jones-style fedoras for Keepon. These designs are experiments in "finishing techniques" -- I am hoping to hit the brim with a heat gun so that I can curl it appropriately. Barring that, I will build in a supported route.
