If I kept track of things correctly, right now is the last set of parts I need to print for my 2/5th scale Wall-E project. Its spacers, so I am doing all I need in one shot.
Soon the assembly shall begin...

I am currently in the process of printing off the parts for a highly articulated 2/5 scale Wall-E. I have about half the parts printed, and so far the print total is 388 hours of solid printing. Thats... well, a lot. 16.16 days to be precise.
Thats... a lot.
I said I have half the parts are printed, but that actually comprises most of the volume. What is left is primarily Wall-e's wheels, which have 70 parts just for the treads. However thats a small percentage of the volume, which is mostly in his body and head. Since filament print times are gated on volume, not number of parts, I expect the rest of Wall-E to be printed off in about a weeks time.
Still, thats a heck of a lot of printing, and, knock on wood, only one minor print failure so far. Thats a remarkable success rate for such things, considering I am using a stock hobby-level printer (Prusa Mini).
OK, enough talking... I gotta swap the empty filament spool for a full one and get back to printing.

I am embarking on a project that will involve a ton of 3D printing to pull off. When I say done, I am not kidding. I may be done printing by mid-October, tho in the projects defence, my Prusa Mini 3D filament printer is rather slow (tho there is an upcoming firmware update that may help speed it up).
I have the first part mostly completed and fresh off the printer, so here is a sneak preview. I am sure you can start to guess what it will be.
