Very well done sir.

ohhh im deferentially printing one of the shields for my brother

done deal .. just printede the reprap/open shield .. i like it

Now, to make the entire bot real without just accessorizing? Have a real castle bot? :-D

Congrats on winning the challenge!

Thanks! I had a ton of fun making this!

Very cool. Your understanding of how to make these things work is far greater than mine! I've not managed nearly so good a detail...

So who's going to build another castle and start a fude?

Thanks for the compliment!

You'll get the hang of it really soon I am sure. What really helped me originally was DaveD's configuration program called profilenator. But now I use ProfileMaker, which is a web based tool by MakerBlock, which is awesome and simpler to use.

Here is the link:


It should crank you out a top notch profile in minutes.

It also helps to upgrade your bot, a stepper extruder is essential, whether it is the Mk6 from MakerBot (HIGHLY recommended) or one of the other varieties, this is key. Also the .40 mm nozzle doesn't hurt. I am still printing in 3mm
but as soon as I run out of filament (I still have 15 lbs or so left ) I am switching to the 1.75mm stuff. Also a level platform and raftless printing go a long way!

WOW! That is fantastic!! :-P


I love the turrets! Do they double as spool holders?

Wow, that is a fantastic idea! Where were you BEFORE I printed it? ;]

Yup, you win the holy crap award. Great job. :)

Hands down, too. That is insanely awesome... This is beyond bling and somewhere into makeover territory!
