Step 2: slice it up and get it ready for printing

Finally the fun began... Since I only have access to a 4.7" x 4.7" printer, I had to carefully chop up my 3D model into smaller pieces while preserving my non-manifoldness and the structure of the model so it could be easily re-assembled after printing. So not only would I get an awesome 3d printed dock but a nice fun puzzle to put together right after the printing. This wouldn't be included if I had access to a larger printer, but A) those printers are on the order of 10x the price of my printer, and B) it actually lends itself to be molded into several parts anyways, so breaking it down was counter intuitive.

<p>Since the download is not available anymore and some people downloaded... would some of them be willing to share it? I really would like to print it to my iPhone.</p>

Very impressive. Though if you have kids around, especially boys that won't stay a docking station for very long hey... hehe
Hi that is a nice piece of art work. I have access to some very high end &amp; large 3D printers so I could produce a solid (one piece) model for you. <br>If would ever consider releasing the stl let me know and I could build you one (free) and of course one for me. My son is a big George R. R. Martin fan. Regards
hi we are consulting with a lawyer but we might take you up on the offer.. can you private message me your contact info
I wonder what the legality is of posting the files for others to print the chair themselves? <br>
(perhaps anonymously?)
Made it to Wired.com again!! oh and we got a cease a desist from HBO asking me to take down this instructable.. what do you guys think? http://www.wired.com/design/2013/02/got-hbo-cease-and-desist/
I know a very small amount about modelling, and my brain is crying looking at your screenies. Awesome work man, this is very inspiring and a cool project all-around.
thanks man i put a lot of wok on this guy.. every polygon was worth it
i have the worse luck or someone in instructables doesn't like me very much.. Right after the contests i entered are over.. i get on the front page.. argg
