3D printed four-legged or two-legged Robot by hauke3000 3D printed four-legged or two-legged Robot by hauke3000
Here is my latest 3D print. With my previous figures I wanted to see how far I could go with articulation. With this one I wanted to try out adding some functionality to a figure. So I made a figure that works both as a two-legged and a four-legged character. It can also open two panels on the back to reveal additional missile launchers and thrusters.

what kind of printer are you using?  I'm saving up to get one of my own but I fear doing high detail precision stuff on most home printers.  Your stuff seems to defy that idea though.  I'd love to see some pics of your guys with something standard for scale so we can get an idea of how big these are.  Right now the figures I'm designing are TINY so that I can keep costs down on shapeways.. but if I could produce figures to sell direct for about the same price but were larger then I'm sure that would be preferable for my customers.

I use a stratasys Mojo. My figures are about 7 inches high. Smaller stuff does loose some detail. The surface is still rough but I guess so are the shapeface printouts.

is this being printed in PLA or ABS?  If so, then I presume that the acetone fumes trick would work to help smooth them out..

so I looked up the Mojo... good god man, that's some pricey tech!  It looks awesome as hell but man.. I think I'd need to sell both kidneys :(

Now I'm thinking that I need to keep saving in order to get one of these.  How much would say it cost you per figure to produce?

The acetone trick would work. I just have not place to handle this kind of stuff. Prices of a figures can be over $100 in materials alone. But they just released a new software for the Mojo that can print hollow models thus saving material. So prices will drop.

over $100 per figure??? wow.. there goes that idea.. I want to produce a final product that I can in turn sell for cheaper than it would be ordering through Shapeways.. sigh..

Thanks for the info mate ^__^
