Summary

ModiBot was designed for SLS printing in Polymide, but we are working toward making him more printable at home. This is the latest offering of parts pre-configured for printing on desktop home printers. We've modified the designs to include integrated supports, so these items should be printed using 'No Supports' settings.

For best results, print in PLA (or ABS, possible) on high detail settings on any home or hobby printer.

Post-Printing

Remove supports

These parts were designed with pre-built supports to make printing easy.

Most of the tabs quickly break away when bent, but you may want to trim them quickly with a blade for clean edges.

hi,
is there a layer height and print speed you recommend because im having trouble finding the correct settings to print this (im fairly new)

Hi, Schmekkie,

I've printed it at both .1 and .2 mm layer thicknesses. My first layer speed is 30 mm/s.

Let me know if that helps. I'll update the print setting above.

thx for the tips :)
it went better to print but i think my printer just isnt accurate enough cause the joints never fit good.
its sad cause this figure is pretty cool but thx for the help anyway :)

Did you try increasing the scale of the parts? Maybe your printer would handle better at 120%.

i tried it a bit bigger but maybe up the scale some more :p ill give it another go tommorow
thx for the fast reply :D

Prints great and love the integrated supports. The supports for the ball joints (the small squares) could be bigger. They are consistently the #1 fail point during any of my prints.

EidolonNight,

Did you have trouble with the squares curling at the edges? I admit I am a blue tape user. I saw this a bit, but I didn't lose any prints to it.

Behold Mo in all his glory. Thanks.

The supports for the socket joints are pretty ingenious.

Glad you like them. It's the only place I've used them so far.

I have some thoughts on improvements I'd like to try.
