FDM printing is tricky, Tried to do it with pieces standing up, layers making it snap at assembly. Will have to reprint some of them at 45 degrees with supports I guess...

Do you think you could make a separate build on here with the head and 1 leg? or maybe just a leg? So those of us that do not use a laser sintering system but FDM or others could print this off with a smog more ease?

Love the design and have been playing around with it. I am wondering why you have 8 different sets of leg parts. How are each set different?

Note, because there are so many leg parts it is very difficult to find all the parts for a given leg. You might consider a different file naming scheme. Such as LEG_##PIECE##.stl (LEG_01_PIECE_13.stl). This would make it much easier to sort in a file browser.

Hi Kevin,

of course all 8 legs are similar. But due to the fact, that it's optimated for prepairing a laser sinter machine and build in a powder bed, all tiles are needed and boxed for better unpacking ;o)

I'm glad to see u already thought to number the components themselves. Given how many parts there are, i was think, God help anyone who muddles them up after printing otherwise. :)
Anyway cool design dude.
U should upload the complete model as a single file so people can view it in 3D.

Thx for your comment. Due to the fact, that I don't mount it in one piece, I don't have a 3D-file with the whole Octo, but added some screens to give a better overview ;o)
