Make your creations scurry around with these handy little windup walkers, http://store.makerbot.com/makerbot-windup-walkers.html

One day Bre walked into the Workshop and declared "everything on Thingiverse should be able to walk". And now it can!

With the Windup Walker 5 pack you will have your ideas scurrying off into the sunset before you can say sarsaparilla.

To help get you started we've created charming walking derivatives of R. Maker and his friend the TARDIS.

See them in action: http://youtu.be/O5dVQayw9Nc

Link is 404. Is the wind-up mechanism discontinued??

we got are 3d printer by your company
and great job

Right. I have the same problem as Dithermaster on the MrMaker model. Only two of the open area supports on the left side print and it's only after 1.5 hours do I find that once again, it's back to the configuration board.

Tried it several different ways. So, what's the mystery hand-shake on this one? Anyone???

I'm having problems printing the Walking MrMaker model; the opening gap supports on the left side aren't printing, so the stuff above it is unsupported and falls. I've tried setting 0 extra shells, and "unproven mesh" but they still don't appear in the G-code (at least they don't show up in the simulator). On a whim I scaled up the model but they still don't appear so I wonder if it is a geometry problem (I'm using RepG 0024).

Any ideas?
