As a part of making the debut “Meet the MakerBot Operator” profile video, I worked with the Nick and Winter to co-create the “MakerBot Operators Tips” video released here.
When downloading objects from Thingiverse.com, Nick and Winter take time to repair manifold (“water-tightness”) issues with models in blender before feeding them into Skeinforge to create printable gcode.
After Nick and Winter fix the model to make it well and truly manifold, they take the time to re-post the fix back to Thingiverse as a derivative to help others print the object more easily. This is, in my opinion at least, a pretty awesome community service that helps everyone print objects more easily.
A challenge for your printer!!
"Braq" is a jointed dragon of 42 pieces. Once printed pieces only need an elastic cord 2 to 3mm thick to join them.
