Found here are all the files for printing a one pound "antweight" combat robot. These files are specifically for the all plastic version, used in the 3d printing friendly "Plastic Ant" class our local robot fighting club has started. For that version, I use eSun PLA Pro which is perfect for this sort of thing. I also have a standard ant version with a metal blade and I used nylon instead of PLA Pro for the front legs and wheel guards (nylon is prohibited in the Plastic Ant class.) The Nylon version is basically the same, though some sort of hub for a metal weapon would need to be crafted. The nylon holds up surprisingly well to even the most dangerous ant weapons. I've yet to try PLA Pro against normal ants, but I suspect it'll be insufficient to handle direct hits.
Filament: ESun PLA Pro (NOT standard PLA), or Taulman Bridge Nylon for front legs and wheel guards.
Outside Perimeter: 5mm
For non-plastic, a blade of some sort. A sawblade will do, but there are better options.
