Summary

I am a backer of the Photon 3D scanner on Indiegogo. The guys doing the project are publishing scans each day, some have been published to Thingiverse by Photon_Adam. I took a file they provided and had some fun with it in Meshmixer. I am no expert but it is pretty neat how you can take a scan and then modify it.

Now that I received my replacement Mightyboard for my Replicator, I am going to print it this weekend.

In the photos, the green ones are from the original scan, the gray ones are for the files I uploaded. I loaded two versions that are identical except one has the bottom slightly trimmed to flatten it.

I don't know if it will need external support, or not. Give it a shot!

Instructions

I have not made it yet, waiting for my new mightyboard and x-stop cable to arrive.

Well my Mightyboard arrived and is installed and ready to print.

I plan to build it with 1 extra shell and 10% infill. I may try a small version without support, but my guess is it will need support unless you trim the bottom flatter than I have done.
