3D model description

This is MEGA MAKEY, the stop-motion creation designed by Dan Spangler for Make: back in 2013. Shared on our blog, but not, until now, shared on thingiverse.

Before you get started though, you should be forewarned. Dan Spangler was a fantastic maker of things, but when it came to design for 3D printing, he was still a beginner. Many of these files simply aren't built in the ways that we've learned work well with typical filament based printers, so it will probably be a bit of headache.

Matt Stultz, our digital fabrication editor opened up the files hoping to quickly print up the bot for it's triumphant return to the spotlight. What he found was nearly every part he tackled took longer and needed more fiddling than he had time for. He's mentioned taking on the task of "fixing" all the files to be an easier project, but that is time consuming also. We've decided to release them as they are and see how you all get along with them.

So, consider this a challenge, can you print the MEGA MAKEY? Can you beat Matt to the punch on making a derivative that isn't such a pain to print?
