Watch This: Time Lapse Video of an Incredibly Detailed 3D-Printed Yoda

Printing this bust at .1mm layer height gives Yoda a significant increase in detail, as compared to the .2mm layer heigh model shown in a side-by-side comparison in the time-lapse video above.


Yoda was printed in green Protoparadigm plastic using a Makerbot Replicator 3D printer, at a feedrate of 30mm/s and a travel feedrate of 50mm/s. [Makezine]


The fact that machine needed no support for the ears was pretty sweet. All of the 3D printers I've used would definitely not be able to do anything near this.
