Fedora for Keepon

Fedora for Keepon by mifga Feb 21, 2011


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/

Wait, it'll still be cooler looking than a regular plastic hat.

Also LEDs.

So what is so wrong about a plastic hat? Now I really want to race to enter that contest!

I know how to do that! But it'll still just be a plastic hat

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.

If you figure out how to slice and connect the pieces so you can print a real size hat you could win the wearable contest.
