Famed Trans-Universal adventurer and rationalist, the Professor. Though he appears at first to be a robot, in actuality the Professor is a hyper-intelligent plant in a robotic suit, a lost, living relic of the mysterious Geosian civilization.

Props to Dan Pettit for inventing the character. Lots of changes from the original model. Aside from being a lot smaller, his suit has had some more complicated designs implemented and he's been cut up to allow for a much cleaner print and modular positioning of all his bits. The og can be found hither: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26586

Designed in the wonderful TinkerCAD.



Printed at a .10 layer height with 100% infill. Assembled with superglue and painted with model acrylics. Take note: He can be tough to put together. Apply equal parts patience and dexterity... oh, and take care removing his limbs from the plate.

I for one am impressed at the detail of the small print.
I tend to go the other extreme in size,

i do like to go hollow when possible,(save time and plastic!)

but it is lots easier to get details when I go big.
so far my smallest slice is .15 but I will get around to .1 soon.

Thanks, Perry! I was pretty proud of this guy. Difinitely the most intricate construction I've down at this size. Yeah, I haven't gotten brave enough to go .1 yet... I haven;t even gone below .10. I'm thinking I should try it, though I'm a bit scared of what it might do to my machine :-P

I am about to try .05 on your little models. I just printed 6 of the at .15 and 33% fill and they turned out pretty sweet, I also scaled them to 77%, I like to print small(: fill it up, it doesnt use to much plastic, I will be printing the next ones at 100% fill and I am sure they will be gorgeous:D

Hey, thanks! Yeah, this guy is a bit of a challenge, especially to put together, but if you have modeling experience he should be a breeze. Post some pics when you get them made!

way too many tiny parts! Do you happen to have an STL of the whole thing? I would be interested in printing it using support..

Alas, I don't. But..., the original file is only split into two parts. You can always resize him, and even go into TinkerCAD and put him together there. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26586http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
