Help with the master thesis - Search for interview partners

by Gamzec

Hello dear community,

I am a student at the Technical University of Darmstadt and in need of your help for my master’s thesis. I am examining the topic of explorative and exploitative behavior in online communities and want to understand your actions on Thingiverse and how they are influenced by your personality traits.

Therefore, I am currently looking for interview partners who are willing to tell me about their experiences on Thingiverse in a 30 to 40-minute interview.

Between the volunteers (approximately 10 participants) a 50€ Amazon voucher will be given away as a small thank you. If you are interested, I can also provide the results of my thesis to you. The interview is possible in English and in German. Your data will of course be treated confidentially and will only be used in connection with this thesis.

If I caught your interest, please sign up with your e-mail address to the following doodle list at your preferred time. Afterward, I will send you an invitation to the Zoom call. The doodle is in the Central European Time Zone, but everybody is very welcome to participate! It is first come, first serve.

Many thanks in advance!

Droid Parts

by Insatiable

So, I am well aware of the DMCA takedown notice. That said, does the creator "Heref" have the droid parts in an OPENSCAD file? I have been trying to alter them with Meshmixer to turn the hand 90 degrees, but because he used rectangles, I am having no end of issues.
