Foldable Robot-R

$ 4.49

AUTOBOTO

This is the second in a series of folding robots to prepare for 4D printing. It was inspired by robot called "Robby" which appeared in movie "Forbidden Planet(1956)" and designed.

This is the kind of "3D Fan art". My imagination has been added so it is difficult to see the original shape before folding it.

Unlike the first, we designed a new structure to create a circular body.
The transparent parts are included. However, since the inside is not visible when printing to the FDM 3D printer, this robot is designed so that its characteristics are preserved even without transparent parts.
The ring-shaped parts of the robot's ears are the same size and shape, and their position may be changed.

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.

Size of this product : before assembly XYZ - 144 x 123 x 45mm / after assembly XYZ - 123 x 48 x 115mm

    Does it require supports?

    It does not need any support at all. That's the advantage of this robot.

    I printed one of these at 100% on a Creality CR-10 at .15 layer height using M3D Light Carribean, and it came out perfectly. I printed the dome using MonoPrice clear and even with the FDM printer the dome came out like a Fresnel lens and I could still see through it. I also designed and printed rocket-powered mech wings in MonoPrice Gray that attach to the two holes in his back... this little guy is too cool!

    Usually 10%~20% is enough to this robot. Thanks!

    Just letting you know I printed the robot at 150 % scale 0.1 layer on a Tevo Little monster. Only took 12 hours at this size ! And it turned pout perfect ! One suggestion why not hollow out the robot head a bit, printers will bridge and this will cut down on filament and print time. Oh also I tried to print the robot on the Prusa MK3 same setting 150 % scale and 0.5 layer but the KM3 had a hot end jam 20 hours in, a common problem with there new hot end design. But the interesting thing was it would have taken 22 hours with these setting on the MK3 and only took 12 hours on the Little Monster and the quality is amazing. Have you thought about taking it to the next level and making some mechanical robots, wind up or battery operated guts.
