Maker-Bot... Bot

Maker-Bot experiment!

Let me come right out and fully admit that this is absolutely a poor man's rip-off of a Ashley Wood/3A Robot. My desk is covered with 3A vinyl, and simplifying one of them in spirit seemed like a fine, low poly, idea for my first 3d printer experiment.

I was really interested in answering a few questions that were plaguing me as I thought more and more about 3D printer application.  What type of surface does the texture of the material create? Was the material solvent with specific chemicals such as acetone? How would the paint stick to the surface of this strange substance? Not a total disaster but far from perfect.
