Large Lego man

Post by Lez0 » January 9th, 2019, 6:35 am

I was hoping to get this printed in time for Christmas, but the printer went down and I have only recently got it running again.
This is twice the size as a Lego man. I am pleased how it's turned out. It's for my 4 year old grandson Max.
I had to have 2 goes at it as I made the model with clearance at the correct scale, when scaled up everything was too slack.
You sometimes have to do things for enjoyment.

Hi GrueMaster & LePaul thanks.

I am pleased how it worked out.
I made the models so I didn't have to use supports, the only part that had supports was the Hips.
I printed at 40mm/sec at 0.1mm steps. The Folger FT5 doesn't have nozzle cooling, I had the bed at 60°C for the first layer then dropped it back to 40°C. I don't know if it helped the quality, probably a little bit.
I am going to give the files to a local lad of 10years old that has recently got a 3D printer. I can't remember the make but it's like the Prusa i3 but with bells whistles and cover etc so it's easier to use. He has printed the usual phone cover etc so I though I this would be a good next step, to get a model he has to assemble and do a bit of fitting.
