Description

Designed to be printed with 5 colors printer (ie MK3 + MMU2).
It can still be printed with less colors by merging parts in the slicer.

Supplies needed

Printing

  • The body+foot part needs supports on the bed,
  • Every part of the Head must be printed with 100% infill:
    • We don't want to see the infill pattern through the shaders,
    • There are some lithophane effects on front part that require this as well,
  • I used 0.2 mm layer height for head parts and 0.3 mm layer height for everything else but there is no real constraint on this parameter.

Source

Ready to print STL files are attached but the source code is available for modifications

11) Head assembly

  • Head shaders are all different and only left and right can be swapped,
  • Before gluing them do some testing to be sure they fit well,
  • You can glue head shaders in any order
