I’m a new user, interested in the prospect of building a Poppy. Since the first step would be to actually print the parts, I was surprised to find out very little information about this on the site (maybe I missed it). So since I’m not really familiar with 3D printing, I have some questions, and hopefully we can gather some more details for others to see too.
- What material should be used for printing the parts? Is the classic PLA good for this or does it have some drawbacks? What was your experience?
- What kind of settings do we need for printing? I see all kinds of things, like resoluton (100 microns seem to be the norm), printing speed, density, etc. Are there any recommended values for these things?
- Is it really possible to print all the parts? The chest plate for example looks really intricate.
Basically I’m trying to get a printer without breaking the bank and I’m not at all sure what to look for.
