I've printed a model and think i've mostly got it together... what have you put around the applicating roll?and would i need to unscrew this each and remove each time?

Hi ribeena. I put some cloth around the first role to apply paint more homogeneously. I used fabric from single use table cloth (not paper) and fixed it with double sided tape. Make sure to use water soluble finger paint for printing (!) That way you can clean the whole machine under running water after use. No need to disassemble. Good Luck!

Hey, amazing model ! Any chance to put a video of it working ? Thanks !

Thank you! It was a lot of work to get this printed on my old UpMini with sufficient rigidity and exact mechanics, which is why I wanted to share. I don't have the model anymore because it was a gift. It does work, though. The printing quality is not great but that's why it's a toy. I will post a video here if I make another one.

what was the size of the print area?

I could print the entire machine (all parts) in one print on an FFCP. Better to do several prints, though.
