This base is meant to be used with a Lego mini-fig to match the scale of 1 inch wide base miniatures.


The scad file has a number of useful variables including knobdiam and crossbars. I've included stl files with crossbars set to either 0 or 2. 4.85 mm knobdiam is working well in the prints I've got, but if your printer is different, having this variable might help.

Very nice design. The pips need to be 4.8mm dia. x 1.8mm deep, and 8mm apart center-to-center. Of course, if your printer is generous or stingy with the filament, that would need to be changed. I drew a somewhat simpler base as a test when I was deciding on whether I wanted a printer for myself or to just have an acquaintance print stuff for me. I also posted it on Cuusoo hoping that LEGO would produce something like this in-house. Mind if I use a variant of your shape to update it? http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/23817http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/v...

Made one, Looks cool, although minifig doesn't really stay on there, little lego nubs might be too small (or just the way it printed). Base also didn't print well (probably need support).

I've uploaded the openscad file. Please let me know if you make any improvements and get it to work for you. In particular, try making knobdiam a little bigger. I'll look into adding optional support under the base, or you can just take out the second cylinder in the difference and the bottom will be totally flat.

What printer did you use?

Cool, I'll check it out. I used a printrbot variant that I built. Will try again this weekend. Thanks!
