Step 18: Cleaning

Cleaning support material from a 3d print as big as this can take about 45-60 minutes. We tried something unusual at the suggestion of a shop manager, and it seemed to work. First, we spent 15 minutes removing the largest chunks of support material by hand (using some soft wooden tools and our fingers in gloves). This got us through about half the support. Then we placed the enclosure in project bag (something like a 5 liter zipper storage bag) with room temperature water, and let it sit. One hour later, we removed the enclosure to find all the support flaking off (if you leave too little support on the model during this step, we've heard the water can cause the actual model material to weaken). After removing the largest flaking chunks, we put the model into a standard water cleaning station and spent another 30-45 minutes removing the remaining 25% or so of the support.

<p>can you answer me please i am in eighth grade and I am making this for language arts. ASAP</p>
<p>how long did this take you</p>
<p>may price more than 10 k INR</p>
<p>What is the total price of this?</p>
<p>i really like the design. very well made! </p>
<p>ain't there a video for it? i wanna see it moving @_@ please :|</p>
Does someone have the message: &quot;Cannot read property 'HITId' of undefined&quot; when executing app.js ?
<p>Have you ever considered turning this into Wheatley from Portal 2? that is my ultimate goal for this.</p>
<p>I did some computer vision on the raspberry pi. For instance face detection and feature tracking. I am working on improving it until it is not using all of the raspi computation power, which is currently the case.</p>
<p>Great project and instructions.</p><p>Im confused on how the noodle actually processes events. What is the response time? Can I make it automated or does it have to have a real person always?</p>
<p>Response time from Mechanical Turk is around 5 minutes, but if you follow this Instructable in general and then substitute your own Turk form that posts directly you a dtabase/service you have set up, then you can get the response time down much lower (maybe 30 seconds).</p><p>Some basic things can be done automatically (like motion detection or basic speech to text) but we were focusing on the manual things.</p>
<p>Am sorry if i skipped but i found no video of your robot. A video would be really nice.</p>
<p>There isn't a video, mainly because the pictures are more representative :) The video would mostly show it playing sounds or putting pictures on the screen, or doing something more digital with the network.</p>
<p>brilliant!</p>
this is amazing! It never ceases to amaze me what people can do with a raspberry pi - you are a genius
<p>Need a video of the robot please!</p>
Oh,so intreseting
<p>Great job!</p>
<p>Amazing. You should enter in a contest. You'll be sure to win something</p>
Love it.
