San Pietro in Montorio
2014 MFA Show
There were some progress in the robot project, but a lot of things need to be replaced to work as I designed.
Rhino Drawing for robot hand
Instead of normal human hand, I chose to use the shape of dump truck as a replacement of human hand and glass. This tiny and adorable toy has several abilities; the lifting bucket, driving, wheel movement, and headlight.
This is second printing after the printing below, I place the model vertically, this reduces the chance to skip some layers while I refill resin in the middle of printing. It took 24 hours and the program create 0.05mm of 2686 layers.
Print with the Formlab printer, it took 13 hours.
Five hours printing

Most of Fused Deposition Modeling style 3D printers are supplied their materials from abs roll of filament. Sometimes the filament is kinked then break. In that case, several layers are skipped over, then this can be break point after 6 hours printing.
