Folding Robot-A

AUTOBOTO

It is a folding type robot that prepares 4D printing. Designed for easy folding of complex structures, this product has been designed to meet the needs of popular 4D printing in the future.
It will revolutionize 3D printing as a totally new structure robot that does not need to be supported nor assembled, just fold.
This design does not require assembly, but the head, arms, and legs can rotate at various angles, so you can play with a variety of things.
Especially, the arm has a double structure so that it can rotate in two directions, so you can take many poses. In addition, the legs are made to protrude to the front and back, and the angle is precisely adjusted so that it does not fall over.
The folded part is made concave so that anyone can fold it easily.

It is recommended that you use a raft instead of a brim.

    Can any of the foldable robots be scaled down when printing? My print bed is only 120mm x 120mm .

    Foldable robots can be printed small but gaps of parts will be narrower. So head, arms and legs will not be moved.

    Hi guys, love this design! Have printed our first robot and it looks great. Just wondering if I would be able to contact the artist and pay to have a custom design made with my logo on it?

    Is there any minimum recommended settings like nozzle size for this?

    fab365

    We tested with 0.4mm nozzle size. From lots of customer review, 0.3mm is OK too. For filament PLA is recommended. But transparent PLA is not good for folding, easily tear down. If you have any further question, leave comment here. Then we will answer ASAP. Thank you~

    너무 귀엽네요. 레이어 초반에 팔이 안떨어지면 잘 나오는거 같아요. 파일을 구매해서 출력은 처음인데 너무 좋아요.

    감사합니다. 팔의 움직임을 고려하다보니 팔이 바닥에 닿는 면적이 조금 작아서 가끔 그런 현상이 벌어지는 것 같습니다. 앞으로 이점 감안해서 디자인하도록 하겠습니다.

    can you give a few more settings on how to get a decent print? ive tried this a couple times and the print came out horrible. i tried with and without raft. i printed at .1 and .2mm. are there any other settings you would recommend? i tried with retraction, without retraction, different infills. not sure what to do. what infill % and pattern do you recommend? thanks for any help!

    We are sorry to hear that you are not printing well. When you look at the photos and information that many customers have uploaded to Facebook or Instagram, the layer thickness or filler you have tried seems to be fine. I would appreciate it if you could send us your printing picture or printer information to give more precise advice. Thank you.

    I was successful printing your model. I did used a raft. The only problem I have is that although the arms go up and down they do not rotate as that joint seemed to not have printed well and it merged with the body. I don't want to force as I am afraid I am going to break it. What do you think happened? I use an Anet A8 printer.

    Congratulations on successful printing. If the arm moves up and down, it can rotate, but give it a force and turn it. If you get more printing, try increasing the "retraction" value! Good luck!!!

    Cool design! Already bought it! No supports needed? Is the raft really necessary?

    fab365

    Thank you! If there is support, arm or leg can not move. Experienced 3D printer users can also print without the Raft. In case of failure, however, using Raft will produce stable print. If you have more question, feel free to ask.
