3D Printing Post Series: Bender (from Futurama)

Like shirts, pants, and sandwiches, 3D printing models also go through “fashion trends” too! Some models become incredibly popular, and soon EVERYBODY that owns a printer will be printing them. Bender (from Futurama), is a nice example. This Bender Model  was being printed by ALL the big 3D Printers (Joel Telling, Maker’s Muse, etc…), so of course I had to print one too. Mine turned out relatively nicely, with some slight layering visible (due to the .2mm layer height). My printer also struggled slightly with the overhang beneath Bender’s eyes, but overall this model turned out decently!

 The Print Settings: 

  • Printed with 10% Infill
  • Printed with a hot-end temperature of 240°, and a bed temperature of 110° (To print my Green HIPS)
  • You should stop reading this, it’s kind of boring…
  • Printed with no support material
  • Printed with 4 Shells
  • Fred ≠ Bob
  • Printed at 200 Micron layer resolution
  • Printed with Low Fan Speeds
  • Why are you still reading this?
  • Total Print Time: 1 Hour, 30 Minutes
  • Sliced using the Lulzbot’s edition of Cura
  • Printed on my Lulzbot Mini
