3D model description

PiPBOT 1.1 is and Print-in-Place ROBOT TOY

It is a small toy that looks like a tank but in fact it is one of the most complicated 3D printed parts from one piece. It needs no assembly other than folding it like taco.

The design was done layer by layer so even it is difficult model its easy to print. All the angles and gaps are perfectly balanced and 3D printer is in its DNA

Files include latest model of PiPBOT v1.1 in STL + OBJ for 3D printing.
Also STP IGS F3D for editing in CAD software.
Calibration file with tutorial how to level the bed also included.
Version without belt (NoTracks) included only as STL+OBJ
In CAD just delete the Group and export.

This project has already its own roadmap and list of things and new features that will be added through out the year 2023

New updates of version 1.xx will be re-uploaded here so no future payments for this model. Just download again.

Other versions for electronics are on the way but 2.0 will be a different breed so probably new edition. Everything will be tested first on version 1.? Follow me on twitter @3dhonza to get news about PiPBOT updates and my other models.

Thank you and good luck with printing.

3D printing settings

Before this print please print Calibration file at 0.2mm height. Included in zip and simple explanation how to use it.

Print Settings:
Nozzle 0.4 or 0.6mm
Layer 0.16 or 0.2 mm
Perimeters 3
Infill 30%
Speed External+Small Perimeters 10mm/s
Speed Perimeters and Infill 25mm/s

Temp PLA 190-195 (at low speed it should prevents bending of tight corners)
Temp PET-G 225-235 ( I have better experience with PET-G not bending so much)

*Record speeds by the community on twitter were much higher. Even 100mm/s but you really have to know your printer. Technical prints are highly accurate so printing slow can avoid a lot of issues.
If your model will get stuck try different settings or filament.

Very simple. Add color change in slicer or stop print during print. When the printing head is above belts just stop printer and change color of filament. DO NOT mix PLA+PET . Keep the same material otherwise it will break.
