If At First You Don't Succeed...

A project log for KARAOKEBOT

In my video, I tried to make it look like I printed KaraokeBot's body perfectly on my first try.

...Good joke, huh?


In reality, the shell featured in the video was my third attempt.

The first shell had a face hole that was just slightly too small, and while the second shell seemed like a good fit, it split horizontally when I knocked it off my desk and onto the floor (lesson learned - a little infill can go a long way).

Although it's a wildly specific part that I don't see many others finding useful, here's a download link for the final KaraokeBot shell in .STL format.

I've also included the now infamous "yellow piece" that broke at the 1 minute 32 second mark in the video.

You might consider printing one as a reminder of the importance of perseverance.

Or maybe it's about the fragility of the human spirit....
