hello, looking at your robotic arm, I thought you might like this project, "magic lamp completely made of pla from 3D printers capable of making objects by hanging them with white light who wants can make it by downloading the plastic

Its so lovely... If you want to make a rc versión tell me i want to probe it,
. sorry for my bad english

when are new figurines coming out, I have built all of these and they are great, I would luv to see some more like mr worthersnap

i love the that you made bro do you like monster if you do i want to know place tall me bro and i will tall you to bro

I had to shrink the eye insert to fit the eye frame but everything else came out great thank you for this awesome model.

It makes me sad that you didn't share the source files. I would have learned stuff from that.

Hey guys, I printed this out if fantastic but I have an issue with the port holes not fitting into their slots, At first I thought was the abs that shrank with printing so I printed another out of pla, and same issue, So then I thought perhaps it was a Z axis miss configuration issue, after printing several test fit both veridical and horizontal test prints all of them fit perfectly, So perhaps im having some other issue, or have any of you had same problem ? im far from new to printing and before this on I never doubted my printers calibrations. so perhaps simple fix would be to simply scale the port holes just enough for them to sit right but nevertheless any input from other that has printed would be appreciated

printing all the legs at once made it much cleaner

Would like to motorized this to use as a fantastic submersible, I teach robotic engineering in San Antonio. ANy suggestions

Hey -

You'd have to print it out and then seal it up tight - probably weight it down somewhat.

If you have access to a larger format printer - then I'd suggest increasing the scale.

Updated files. Attached is a new version of the propeller with a beefed-up shaft so it will print better and not snap off so easily. An updated version of the prop housing to match is also included.

um how big prind bed = needed?

You can get away with a much smaller print bed (6x6) for most parts except the side fins - but someone posted a remix with it chopped up, so problem solved!

Replicator 2 size.

11.2 X 6.0 X 6.1 IN

darn, it wont fit on mine. i have a 100x100x100

I've noticed that the newest version of MakerBot Desktop tries to put support underneath the entire head - it only needs it under the pin holes. To get it to do this on new version, rotate the head by about 20 degrees.

Hey Boldmachines,

I edited the Mid Frame model to allow me with smaller 3d printers (cough cough Printrbot Simple metal 6x6x6 bed) to print the full size model. Could I give you the model to allow people with smaller printers to print this?

Just post it as a remix.

Thanks Count Spatula !

I put together a ball and socket joint tentacle that should be poseable. Search under Gowanus to find it.

Fantastic model! Thank you.

Added in Porthole cover - Thanks Count Spatula !

Designer of the Gowanus Monster here, I uploaded the missing porthole insert:

In your instructions you mention a porthole insert file but I didn't see one I could download.

Nice Steampunk style. Can't wait to see what mods people are going to do with this baby.
Lights and articulated tentacles are a must.

See, I was all gung ho to print this, but now you made me want to wait on the off chance of a remixed improvement. lol
