printable yoda figure

Between the years I had some time to use my 3D printer for my private amusement.

It is a meshup of a thingiverse yoda and a yoda figure from the google sketchup galery.
I removed the head of the sketchup yoda and replaced it with the thingiverse yoda using netfabb. Then I made it smooth with blender sculpt tools.
The figure was repaired with netfabb, scaled to a height of about 75 mm and then printed on my mendel in orange PLA direcly on tape without raft with my new 0.35mm nozzle.
The layer thickness is 0.17 mm so the details came out pretty good.

To check if it is printable I took the original yoda from thingiverse, scaled it down to the same size and printed it.

The files can be found on thingiverse.

And this is the conspirative yoda gang:

Have fun printing your own yoda figures.

Again a little object which is useful and printable.
It's just for fun and for presenting, what you can make with a 3D printer.

The model was created with openSCAD.
On the one side I added the webadress of our shop and on the other side a clamp.

Both parts have little holes for a screw-bar which you can use to put them together.
In this case I used a 8mm M3-screwbar. But in the openSCAD model you can adjust to every size you need.

The object was printed on my mendel with a layer thickness of 0.2 mm in blue PLA.Looks quite ok - but the top looks a bit ugy and has to be sanded...

The webadress is a little to small, but with a little imagination one can still read it - next time I make it a bit larger.

Screwed together, it looks like a rollerpen :-)

Perhaps is there someone who wants to modify the openSCAD to a printable rollerpen case.

You can download the files from thingiverse: here.
