Have you been envious of ever-dimensionally-increasing build platforms? Well now you can claim to be able to print ONE FOOT* OF PLASTIC!

  • Warning: Claim may be pun.

But seriously though, this was a test print while I continually try to get my printer to meet my unrealistically high quality expectations.

Hope you get a kick out of this!

I added an approximately "full-size" model of just the top half of the foot.

I'm satisfied with the quality.


Print, glue, admire.

Could you maybe upload the whole foot instead of just the two loose parts? I'm trying to turn it into a usb stick and I'm having trouble aligning the holes in the two parts.

I don't want to sound like a heel, but how did you create the file? Is that a scan? Either way, impressive - what a great start for a robot. I am trying to build one to push my mower this summer.

It was amputated from a pre-built, pre-rigged 3d model figure used for computer animation. I take no credit for the design, but I will take credit for the surgery. ;)

Cool! You mean like in Poser? Do you do any digitizing?

You're really toeing the line with this. I think I may knee-d to print one myself. You're clearly a shoe-in for a featured thing.

Not to be callous but I do think this print has lots of "sole." It think it will be a run-away hit. If it got on the blog, it would be quite a "feet!"

I could just kick myself for ever reading this. You got your foot in the door with that image and now these puns are standing on my last groaning nerve.

Awesome thing though. Definitely a step in the right direction-wait left.

CRAP! I can't seem to stop putting my-NO! Not ganna say it! No more tripping over metaphors!

Here! I'll even start off a new paragraph so I'll start on sure f-fffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
