  1. Howdy, I've printed the Adabot Mini Fig model published by the Ruiz brothers from Adafruit but am not happy with the quality. https://learn.adafruit.com/lego-webcam-cover/overview Their version looks much nicer in terms of surface quality and overall appearance .

It used to take students days or even weeks to complete a single prototype. With access to a 3D printer, students were able to create a design and hold it in their hands the next day. The original Ultimaker was working non-stop with students literally camping out in the studio to start a new print as soon as the last one was done.

"Look at the size of him!", the Lilliputians exclaimed. "Have you ever seen such a thing in your whole life?" Even the oldest and wisest among them including the smallest and most ancient of the Lilliputian bots had to admit that they had never seen such a thing in their whole lives.
