Perhaps I shouldn’t have 3D printed this

But I couldn’t resist Landru’s awesome model of the T-800 Terminator Exoskull. It was also my first time printing something with support. I used MakerWare’s built in support option in this 4 hour print using the medium quality settings. The support literally peels off and is kind of like velcro (but looks like a brillo pad when printing with silver filament in this case) and leaves a surprisingly clean finish where it was attached.

I timelapsed the print but still trying to figure out the best way to capture these prints since the Replicator 2 has a different moving platform than my Thing-O-Matic did, so it’s challenging to find the right position for the camera, in this case my GoPro Hero 2:

I for one, welcome our new Skynet overlords.
