Description

Summary Print money! (from Hyrule) With this script, you can easily print as many rupees as you can fit in your build plate. For example on my Replicator 1, I was printing 50 rupees at a time. Print Settings Printer Brand: MakerBot Printer: MakerBot Replicator 1 Rafts: No Supports: No Resolution: 0.2 Infill: N/A Notes: First make sure the nozzle diameter (default 0.4 mm) and layer height (default 0.2 mm) match your slicer's settings, as by default the model is exactly 2 nozzle-diameters thick in each slice so as to avoid generating any infill paths (which would show up when lit), and the top/bottom of the rupee is exactly 4 layers thick to provide a symmetrical crosshatch. Also, try some test prints with various colors of PLA to see what works for you. If you happen to have any translucent colors on hand, go for it! REMOVAL: While the rupees have ginormous footprints, the thin bottom and translucent plastic actually makes them pretty easy to remove from a blue painter's tape platform (the plain matte-surface kind, not the new smooth blue-with-printed-text stuff). The best tool I've used so far for this is my cricut spatula (http://www.amazon.com/Cricut-29-0099-Spatula-Tool/dp/B000NP1ESO/) with a slightly sharpened edge. I can't believe it took me a year of printing to figure this out, but the rounded tip is handy because you can just apply light pressure while rolling the blade side to side, which usually works it under the print without even damaging the tape. It just take a little patience, but ultimately saves time since it's so gentle. :)
