I exported my Solidworks model into an stl to be able to print it out on the Makerbot. With an estimated print time of over 6 hrs I had plenty of time to study for my midterms. I had intended to go to a local competition near me (HORD), but between exams and other obligations I wasn't able to finish on time. Fortunately though, I had a four day weekend after midterms to relax (i.e. build robots). Because the University was on break, Thinkbox was closed, so I set up shop in my dorm room and got to work. Everything went pretty smoothly due to good planning and the fact that the majority of the internal parts were the same (the motors were switched from 30:1 GoldSparks to 11:1 SilverSparks and the servo was exchanged for a smaller metal gear servo).
Overall I'm very happy with how this came out. Hopefully the 3D printed material holds up to the stiff competition at Franklin Institue
