    Yeah, but Ivan’s is big enough to sit in.

    I wonder if he sliced the parts so that they each took about 1kg so he wouldn’t have to change the spool. He’s probably either got bigger spools or just the straight pellets by now.

    Still printing…  Ran into an issue printing the rollers.  Every one of them besides the drive wheels require support.  First try fused the support material into the grooves.  Found someone on thingiverse that remixed them in two parts so no supports are needed.

    I have not used supports in a long time, sounds like they still suck.

    Nice. Although you also could have done the just in time Indiana Jones filament swap.

    Pics work now!

    I had to upload them all.  Was trying to save site space and just linking to them, but that only seems to work sometimes. 🤷‍♂️
