For the 3d impression of the lower support, the antennas, the "feet" and the support of the motors, it is not necessary to print with quality, to activate supports or to put raft. However for the case, I recommend defining supports in Zigzag to 5% minimum and a 6mm raft to ensure a good impression.


To improve the slip of BichoBot, I recommend putting heat shrink around the "feet" and a piece of felt in the back as seen in the image.

For more fun, you can print several diameters of "feet" and go testing, with larger diameters get a higher speed and if you swap between feet, you can get circular trajectories.
