Make: Millions of Make robots with a hot glue injection mold! with the time of making these cute mascots lowered, now you can make more than ever before! The two mold pieces print in about 1 hour and 45 minutes total, and then you can start producing like mad!

Post makes! I'd love to see how different layer heights and printer settings effect your millions of clones!

Printed on a Printrbot Simple.

PLA from http://www.makerfront.com

STEPS FOR INJECTION

2.set hot glue gun to low settings and let it heat

3.clamp the mold
