Greetings Bold Adventurers!

I know you must be pretty excited right now, but please try to contain yourselves while we get thought this final pre-flight briefing....

Your rocket is just coming out of the Replicator now. And let me be the first to say, she’s a beauty. This new model you’ll be flying has that stunning red-and-white color scheme, and a much lower risk of sudden occupant liquefaction.

We’ll be sending you on a daring voyage of exploration and discovery. You're going out into the furthest reaches of the known Thingiverse, with only your wits and those little helmets for protection. We have no idea whats out there... or if it's friendly. But here at MakerBot Space Exploration our engineers have decided its best to just say positive.

Remember, it's the dream of every spool of filament to one day be printed into an astronaut, and you are the lucky few who get to live that dream. Go forth my brave astronauts and see all there is to be seen! Discover all that can be discovered! Meet new prints and learn their ways! Yours is the greatest adventure of our time!

And be sure to take lots of pictures, you know we love a good slide show.

Created by Thingiverse user Skimbal, designer of the Turtle Shell Racers, MakerBot Botmobile and the Gothic Cathedral Playset.


Body, Arms, and Helmet need to be printed with support material. Use the the 'Exterior Support' setting in Print-o-matic for best results.

Heads print in sets of four, and must be pushed into the helmets through the face hole before being snapped onto the torso.

Anybody with some graphic skills care to post some egg-bot files for some cool faces?

Can you please post the file for the crowbar either here or a separate thing so we can turn our astronauts into freemans too?

I think I recognize that silent physicist in the last photograph, with the orange hazard suit and crowbar...
