Make: Millions of Make robots with a hot glue injection mold! with the time of making these cute mascots lowered, now you can make more than ever before! The two mold pieces print in about 1 hour and 45 minutes total, and then you can start producing like mad!

Post makes! I'd love to see how different layer heights and printer settings effect your millions of clones!

Printed on a Printrbot Simple.
PLA from http://www.makerfront.com


printed at 0.3 layerheight, but any layerheight will work.
designed in 123d design

1.spray mold with cooking oil
2.set hot glue gun to low settings and let it heat
3.clamp the mold
4.place a layered piece of tin foil in the injection slot, so the mold doesn't melt.

7.pull off the front of the mold.

Let me know how much you would charge me. I don't have a 3d printer yet. I go across the river and hope the libraries 3d printer works.

both parts take a hour... on my PrintrBot simple wood ,but most library's use Makerbot rep 2s, and with the resolution of those, it would take like a hour & 45 min. . its most likely gonna be around 3-5 $ from me (and i might be able to supply one hot glue stick) and around $3. AND i i have electronics projects going on, so if you buy it from me, your supporting my future projects!

oh, and the 1 hour 45 min it would take on a Makerbot is for EACH HALF

and librarys make you go through a orientation, and then you have to reserve time.

Were you able to talk with your Dad?
