3D Printed Mandalorian & Baby Yoda How Not To Time Lapse Cringeworthy Face Palm

Carpenters say “Measure Twice, Cut Once”. This phrase should apply to 3D Printing as well. I was all excited to live cast my Mandalorian 3D print. Things started off fine. It was only 8 hours in that I realized my critical error…. the camera angle was WAY off. This resulted in a 11+ Hour Time Lapse ending in a headless Mandalorian. Oof!

About This 3D Model
This 3D model from the Mandalorian was created by user FiveNights on Thingiverse.com What makes this model of Baby Yoda and the Mandalorian unique is that is prints completely support free! Typically a print like this would require any overhanging part at more than a 45 degree angle to have a dense network of support material obscuring the 3D Print and especially Baby Yoda.

About The Printer
This 3D print will be printed on a Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D Printer. After each .2 MM layer the 3D printer pauses, moves the extruder to the rear of the printer, takes a photo and then continues the print giving the illusion of the print appearing from thin air. These printers can be purchased on Amazon for around $200-$300

This video will be filmed using Octoprint connected to a Raspberry Pi B with a Wyzecam Camera. Total print time was around 6 Hours with each layer set to .2MM This print used Silk PLA Gold filament available on Amazon.com
