Check out the EPIC youtube video on the making of this Wood Grained Yoda Build: http://youtu.be/d1L3RD54Rp8

Brought to you by www.fused3d.com where you can get wood filament in 1.75mm and 3mm sizes, along with 6inch wide rolls of scotchblue painters tape and replicator 2 sized sheets of painters tape.


The gcode file is for a Replicator 2 at .1mm Resolution using Wood filament from www.fused3d.com with a varied print temperature to simulate wood grain pattern.

The stl file is rotated from original thingiverse model to print out straight in printer.

How long was the overall print time?

Hey - it give's us all someone to laugh at - at his prices, we all need an $80 yoda head.

I also notice that your g-code is optimized to consume about as much filament as possible - I'm sure that's purely for strength and durability, and has nothing to do with consuming excess amounts of filament.

It's not even your script doing the layer / temperature conversions - your value add here is evidently the markup on your filament.

Even if it's only suitable for one specific printer, uploading the gcode is an interesting point... it would be wonderful and most appreciated if you could upload some tool (script, program, applet, whatever) to modify any gcode for any printer.

I still think that the "made one" button + a comment to explain how the gcode was modified is the way to go, but that's just my opinion.

The gcode modifier is a python script, just go to this thing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:49276http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Generate wood patterns with temperature changes

Oh, I see...

...sorry but I must say it again, the way to go is the "made one" button in MoonCactus' thing (you are not compliant with the attribution in the license) and a comment in your "made thing" to credit the author of the printed thing itself.

Also, doing it that way you wouldn't be getting negative input which IMHO is important when you're trying to sell and specially if your product can be easily found at a much lower price as seen here: http://www.3ders.org/articles/20130204-wood-filament-laywoo-d3-suppliers-and-price-compare.htmlhttp://www.3ders.org/articles/...

Best wishes with your business.

Again, like your other recent one, this IS NOT a DERIVATIVE. Are you just SPAMing the 'verse to advertise your filament?
You should use the 'I made one!' button.

Agreed, this is obviously just a marketing ploy.

You can't add instructions or a description to "I Made One!", and I added gcode for making this with varying temperatures. SO TOO BAD SO SAD

But you can though... Just comment on it.

Changed Gcode is not a derived DESIGN, and you only want to add text to SPAM the 'verse.
