    Hello.

    Will you be at TFCon this year? It will be my first year there, and I would love to purchase one of these.

    V6 Production prototype will be revealed at TFCon this year. I'll have prototypes with me show at the NonnefProductions table in Charlotte.

    this is absolutely incredible. unfortunately, i am completely unfamiliar with the 3D-printing scene. Would it be possible to commission this from you? This would make the perfect gift for my boyfriend, especially if it came with the K-9/Lazerbeak!

    How do we PM you? I am new to this site and would also love to commission one of these from you or if the new release is available purchase one. That's all my son talks about is transformer tardis. It's on his mind when he wakes up and goes to bed. Let me know how to contact you or the details of release and I am in. Thank you!

    Hey. fist I want to say thank you for putting this up. I'm working on the print for Soundwave version now. So far today I have printed and assembled the Left arm. I scaled the model down 20% so it is the same size as my Masterpiece Soundswave. Looks like it matches up pretty well at 80% the size you made the files. It also works better for using the 1.5mm PLA non extruded piece for pins. Fits nice and tight :),

    I am having to sand a file to get the parts to fit properly but that was expected. Attached is the first part I have printed next to MP Soundwave.

    One thing that is not in the file is K-9/laserbeak. I would very much like that file if you have it. I may not be able to print it here but it would be worth it to me to get it printed at Shapeways.

    Looks great! I never ended up printing the new version to test him, so let me know how it goes!
    I've got the new v5 ready to go thats also smaller but I'm waiting for a few promotional things to iron out before I show anything off. Moved away from 3D printing into direct mold milling so the finished k9 files wouldn't be of much use. I will be offering them up myself on the site as finished figures once I can though. =)

    A v5 version would be great. I would love to do the mill mold for injection molding when you get them done.

    I have this almost done. One thing that has been a big issue with getting this together is the spacing of the parts are not there and I'm have to re-size and sand many pieces to fit them together. A few parts I have reprinted a few times and may reprint one more with 100% fill to help make them a little more sturdy. Well as sturdy as you can get with PLA. lol

    Also a few parts are missing like the speer for the gun and the hinges for the back are very skinny. not sure if I'm missing something.

    All in all this is a great model and I have been having fun putting it togehter. :)

    Hello.

    I asked about this a few months ago, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask again:

    Is there any chance of selling this as a kit? I would gladly buy one so quick my wallet would get whiplash. I don't have a 3D printer but would love one of these for my collection.

    Thank you.

    Short answer: Yes.

    Long answer: Yes. Soon. By this summer.

    Mark 3.5 will continue to be hosted here on Instructables for anyone to download and print themselves.

    Mark 5 is being tidied up and small finishing tweaks are being performed as I make production prototypes. This won't be released until I've worked out all the hickups in my production pipeline, as I'm sure everyone would want a top of the line product and not something developed whilst working out the bugs.

    For prototype pictures of a finished Mark 4, as well as updates to this and other projects I work on: check out my twitter. @NonnefThandaius

    Are you the creator of the Dalek transformer, or is that someone else?

    I'm having some issues getting this to print on my Makerbot; Makerware keeps printing curling rafts and insufficient supports.

    I can make up for bad rafts by not printing them and spending some extra time leveling my build plate, but any suggestions on how to get this printed easily? I know this is Makerware related, but I was hoping you or someone else might have some insight.

    AFAIK Makerware has a very good slicer (according to online communities), so I'm a bit lost on what to do. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks! I've got the Mark 4 nearly finished and I'm looking forward to posting it for the 50th anniversary.
    I've never used Makerware, so I'm not sure I could be of any help...
    What if you removed support and just cut the model with NetFab into multiple pieces where the overhang is? I used to do that instead of messing with support material and always got better results.
