Simple hack for all paradroid fans. Enjoy!
It all started when I found some drawings of the character of the infamous computer game from the 80's. The next step was obvious to me, just build a raster graphics of the beast using GNU/Octave. As is the original image needed some modification on order to be 3d-printed.
So added some extra squares to get the job done. Then used the Inkscape-to-OpenSCAD plugin and got the final 3d model, after some editing on the output code.
And it prints nicely with a resolution of 0.2mm and a 20% infill.
