Love this file but I've printed that cam 9 times and I just can't get it in the channel without snapping it. Any suggestions?

Awesome man... I will love to make it

can you make 2 of them for me please

I have all of the pieces printed out and have been trying to get them together. The eyelids go in perfectly, but when I put the back piece in to try and open the eye it is having difficulty opening the eye. I am really having to turn the back piece to even get the eye to budge. Any advice on this issue?

how do you orient the pieces when you are printing them? I am very new when it comes to 3D printing and need some serious advice. Thanks in advance! I cant wait to have one of these!

Check out the video from Uncle Jessy which will show you the way he set it up on the build platform. Remember to use the highest Z-axis tolerance you can to print.

Thank you for the help!

What did you use to smooth the one in the assembly video? It looks so smooth! I’m having trouble getting the parts to fit together right off the print bed. Are they meant to be sanded down to fit? Thanks!

No Smoothing or sanding. I just used the highest resolution on the Zortrax M200 (0.09mm) which gave an awesome finish.

the only thing that would make this cooler is the front cross pieces rotating like they do in the movies but I don't think consumer grade printers can print the tiny details and pieces that would be required for that

Awesome! Had fun building this. Thank you! https://youtu.be/Jfx2LgnkNb8

Amazing details! How did you attach the necklace cord to the eye?

I love this model! I ran into a problem today with it though. I am printing this for my friends birthday, and I am having a problem with the eyelids. When the eye is closed and I turn the inner eye, the eye opens as normal. When I go to close it however, only the top eyelid closes, and I have to remove the inner eye to reset lower eyelid. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, have you found a fix? Thanks!

Can you make a top face as two separate files for dual extrusion printers?

I had to of printed the inner eye like 8 times, and i can never get it into place without the little side hands breaking off :(

Same here man! It's been sitting on the shelf for 6 months now. Did you ever figure out a solution?

nope I just display it propped open lol

Have you thought about building a new model where the top section turns like in the movie? I wouldn't even know where to start with something like this, you've done a great job even as it is.

I looked at this when I started making the model, unfortunately I was unable to figure it out. I suspect the actual movie prop is unable to do it because the rotation does not seem logical, the motion is CGI.

I did come up with a solution but I am absolutely horrendous with cad. In a nutshell extend 2 thin pins from the front section, which go right through the entire object and attach to the turning part on the back. Slits through the object would only need to be a quarter of the rotation.
Using this idea, you could also make the back turning bit a lot smaller.

In a nut shell, cut 1/4 rotation slits through the whole object, and user turns the front section by hand, which attaches to the turning section you are currently using via rods. Damn this is actually a lot easier to think about than it is too explain lol. I wish I could cad.

Is there a way to get an "Open" top face? Were the beams in front of the eye are not in the "new york" position?

I believe you're right. The bars don't just rotate, they also stretch and the curves change direction.

Hello I'm having trouble understanding this light in the center, is it always on?

Yes the light is always on. I did not have a switch small enough to fit so I did not include a back hole.

no its not it probably has a light switch somewhere

Printed the parts and one of the arms on the backside snapped off. This actually made installing and testing the opening/shutting mechanism easier. I'd suggest in a later revision to have one of those arms be a separate piece to be attached near the end.

Aside from this one thing, this model is absolutely bad ass, and has been a lot of fun to tinker with to assemble. Once I've painted mine up and installed a light I'll be sure to post pictures.

Thanks for sharing this model!

for some reason whenever i try to print any part it stops at about 80% and my flashforge dreamer says its got a print file content error? can anyone help or explain?

It sounds like issues with your slicer. Try using a lower resolution or using another slicer like Cura. I use the Zortrax slicer for my prints.

Going to try same slicer at a lower resolution if that doesn't work i will try to try Cura one. Hopefully the resolution was the problem. Thanks!

One of my favorite prints man! Should have a video up in the next day or so!

Thank you! Very nice work. I scaled it down a bit to print, printed with no issues at all, cam mechanism needed the slightest hint of sanding to smooth out the action... works like a charm!

Awesome, the open/close lids are a great touch ...

I love it. Thanks for this!

Just plain awesome I was thinking of doing the same thing but I hadn't figured it out yet. Thanks for this I am going to print this asap
