Little simple robot box with removable head and removable/push through heart.


I have printed this now.

Changed a few bits and pieces, including splitting the robots head into two bits to aviod overhand issues.

I have made the head a separate STL for some reason no matter what I did it wouldn't print properly when together with the other parts (it started printing about 4 layers up.

The small disc fits snug in the robots body, this is glued to the robots head completing the box.

The STL you've uploaded is an HTML file that says "Tinkercad is updating Try again in a few minutes".
Looking at the model, the cones on the arms help with the overhang problem there but starting from such a small point might be a problem. The arms have to build up pretty high before it connects to the body and is likely they will break from the build platform before that.
I'd suggest making the shoulders and the top of the body (the neck) the same height and flipping the body over and printing it upside down.That would also fix the unsupported overhang in the heart cutout.

Great, thanks. I thought overhang would be an issue. turning it upside down make sense. I will fix the file now too.
Thanks for the input.
