I am having a hard time printing dino 2 right. The gcode is strange - the triangle "fills in" on layers 11, 12, and 13. Is the model not "manifold"? Anyone else have problems printing that file? Thanks.

i got the same problem

That seems to be a problem with the used Skeinforge version. I use an old version (v2009-11-06) for several reasons (mostly compatibility with other code). I just generated gcode from the dino 2 right stl file and it was sliced without problems...

its super easy to cut out of there so its not really that big of a problem. it has to do with the bottom platform i think. if that were pushed forward a mm or 2 so its not in line with the inside edge of the upright it would probably solve it. right when it started to print the bottom plate is when it went wrong.


Might I inquire as to why these are designed in two pieces per dino rather than one piece per dino being printed base side down? Is it a strength issue?

I imagine its better accuracy in hole alignment too

Yes. It's much more stable this way.
