Customized 3d print of “Dewey” Drone droid from the movie silent running. I tried to put a faded “6” in the vent work on the front, to make it look a little like the guys from the movie, and to homage the Prisoner tv show. (Also the 6th item I ran on the printer) Colored it out in an attempt to make if look a little “Kirby-like” in the lines and color, it pretty much pops in black light.

Color change gonk green when cool, orange when warm. When it is green it seems to be a little translucent, to where the can see other colored filament inside.

The support filament is nice, peels away like onionskin. I did get a little overeager, and may have to fill a crack in gonk’s ankle where I cracked it.

The cargo pod turned out fairly well, can act as sci-fi scatter.

Talking about a film I think has been long misunderstood, by its supporters as much as its critics. It’s not just a dark alternative to the original 1939 Wizard of Oz. Return to Oz is so, so much more.

First test print of 4 different filaments on one print. Doing a 3.75 scale Gonk droid and a little 28mm scale cargo container from silent running on the same plate. 17 hours print time, so I guess I will know come the sunrise. Most of the time will be spent switching filaments, because I got a little zany with the painting tools. I would say this print job with one color would probably only take about 5 hours otherwise. If I had applied the carbon fiber stuff with normal pla, it looks like the heat difference between the different types would reflect poorly on my final product.

The slicer is based off of the prusa one, pretty intuitive.
