In celebration of recovering from this week's fail we are printing tbuser's Beefy Trophy model from Thingiverse, which he built by combining an existing statue model with some beefy arms like those in atartanian's Beefy Arm Starter Kit.

Settings: Printed on a Replicator 2 with .3mm/low settings and a raft, using the built-in supports from tbuser's model instead of the usual MakerWare supports. This is my first time printing with these cool fractal-post-support-thingys, which I imagine come from MeshMixer in some way that I should learn about:
In fact there are a lot of things that I need to learn about this summer, including:
- AutoCad's MeshMixer, which tbuser used to mashup the statue with the beefy arms;
- MakeHuman, crazy amazing open-source software that atartanian used to make the beefy arms;
- Everything else: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Blender, Maya, how to cook with a gas stove, how to live in a big city, how to use all the buttons on my synthesizer, and how to find and properly wear a dress when it is necessary, even though I seem to be some strange mashup of lady and beefy arms.
