Maker Faire Robot Action Figure PIP (with supports): 2015 3D Printer Shoot Out Test Models
Make Magazine's third annual 3D Printing Shootout was conducted using this file. This model is a derivative (with added supports) of the "Action Makey" (www.thingiverse.com/thing:331035) created by le FabShop's http://www.lefabshop.fr creative director, Samuel N. Bernier (https://www.behance.net/samuelbernier).
Make: 3DP Test Team member, Tom Burtonwood (http://tomburtonwood.com/) added meshmixer supports our version to make the arm overhangs a little less extreme.
You can read all 26 machine reviews in Make:'s Annual Guide to 3D Printing 2015 (http://www.makershed.com/products/make-magazine-volume-42) (Volume 42).
