    So BC Huff is nice except I will not stand for a Huffer that is not a slant cab. So instead of waiting for BC or someone else to make it I'm making it myself.

    Greys version 4 test and it fits pretty well.

    Orange version 5 test is being printed.

    That looks pretty nice and you've got decent resolution/quality for a filament printer. What are you printing on?

    Grey was done on the Ultimaker 2+. Orange, which screwed up, on a Makerbot Rep2. Filament got tangled on the last few mm. Test did its job though. I've got a couple of spots to fix for tolerance.

    Looks good! I already thought that the new Badcube Huffer was a big improvement over their first one. This is a nice touch though.

    Tested an almost fully working prototype. I'd say I'm about 90% there. It's a game of .1mm now. And screws.

    Prototype finalized. It fits. Using paper clips as pins Huff is now a slant cab! Next I'll have to find some translucent blue filament and a can of more appropriate orange spray paint.

    Ultimaker 2.0+ using pla filament

    @Dangard Ace are you going to post the STL file? I would like to make this mod for personal use. If not, can you post it up on ShapeWays?

    Still working on it. After just sitting and looking at it for a few days I'm not liking how it's sitting in some positions. Shifting things around by .2mm to .5mm to get a nice boxy look.

    I just won't have time to print and sell this so.....MERRY XMAS! If you want the .stl file send me a PM with your email address.

    I printed mine on an Ultimaker 2+ 4mm nozzle at .06mm layer height, PLA. Also prints well at .1mm and takes around 10hrs. I've been using regular paperclips for pins so the holes are 1mm. Depending on your printer you may need to pre-hole the holes before putting the pins in. The screw on the back I used one of the screws leftover from the ShadowFisher Hip kits. I Gundam Marker the windows blue and it doesn't look bad. Just remember to sand down the windows or the pillars before painting so the paint doesn't seep.

    Edit: 100% plastic/infill

    Just Gundam markered it. Don’t really do much modeling anymore.
