Hi guys! Smile

I was wondering if anyone of you tried to print a LEGO minifigure. I recently tried to 3D one but it was a fail! Smile The hands, arms, and legs didn't move (I actually broke one of the arms trying to move it...)
Did anyone of you guys succeed in making a good functional minifigure?
I was also wondering about the colors. Did anyone experiment with that as well?

Looking forward to hearing from you Smile

Ronen

my only thought would be to make each piece as a different file for say. like, you make the hands, arms, ect. and print em all sepratly then put it together your self. and make it as close as possibale to how the actualy lego mini figs are. and the material you use might have a great impact of how ewll it works.

They also make a lot of lego mini figure accessories which are pretty cool.
