Try to lower the robot's center of gravity.  see if there is a battery on top that can be moved to the bottom or that type of thing.   That will keep more of the weight on the tracks when its on a steep incline.

What you're probably looking for is "edit > make solid" in meshmixer.  this will allow you to set a minimum thickness, it it will automatically add material to areas that are too thin.  This will cause you to lose some detail, and potentially create lumps, which aren't much of an issue on organic shapes, but could be a problem for a more technical shape like yours.  But, as far as an automatic process for thickening thin models, I think its your best bet, short of having the model redesigned.

"It’s liquid and it doesn’t stick until the platform isn’t warm."  

 

This sentence is a little difficult to parse, but after taking a look at the website it does mean what I had hoped it did.  It gets sticky when the bed warms up and lets go after it cools! Sweet! I will have to try this stuff.
