Robotica: 1 of 4. 3D Printer Fun.
The 3 BulletBills are complete. Actually 4, as there was a second tiny one but I gave him to a friend.

The large ones take about 5 hours to do with 2 printers! the Tiny one takes about 3 hours on 1 printer. Part of the reason - they are not hollow. They are plastic filled with a 50% infill. So they are hard and heavy than if it were just an empty shell.

Looks like the printers passed the test; though the original plans were off - the parts will not fit printed as is. Here is the list as is in percentage numbers. 100% created a BulletBill about 6 inches long X 4inches wide/tall. Problems:
With the Head Shell at 100%, the rear bullet cap and inner red filling will not fit when both are also at 100%. They needed to be reprinted at 99%. The eyes and teeth fit on both as-is at 100%. This made the first large BulletBill.

Thus with the needed parts printed at 99%, this left parts that 100% that will not fit (rear cap and red inner filling). Fix, reprint the Head Shell at 101% and make another set of teeth and eyes. This was completed today and created the second BulletBill.

The same thing happened with the tiny BulletBill, printed at 50% from the original size. Parts were made at 49% and 51% to make 2 tiny BulletBills. One of them was given to a friend.

Though the parts snap into place, they do come off if it were dropped onto the floor, so they were glued into place. My friend is thinking of putting his tiny BulleBill on a gold chain.... LOL!

Now with 3 BulletBills floating about, Mario is going to die!!!

Thanks again to
and my daughters for getting me those Tronxy 3D Printers.

If you would want one, I recommend the Tronxy X1. Easy to build (its a kit) and use. And it is small, so you can have it on your desk. There are many Youtube Videos about it. But Buyer Beware - its shipping from China (takes about 3-6 weeks) and you're on your own putting it together. This is not for the mechanically weak or technologically dumb. And I am not advertising for them, just stating that for its price and size, this is a good route to go on.
