Folding Robot-S

4D printing ready product
$ 3.99

This is the third in a series of folding robots to prepare for 4D printing. This robot was inspired by a tin toy robot. The robot that puts the battery in its legs and the smoke in the mouth was a toy I wanted to have when I was a kid. Although this robot can not walk or smoke by electric power, it is newly interpreted to be optimized for 3D 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.
The biggest feature of this design is the application of the new dual structure. First of all, we made the cover of the robot's legs open and closed. Secondly, the needle can move according to the movement of the switch on the chest.
This new dual structure, which allows complex movements in a single print, will show new possibilities for 3D printing.

You should never use support. If there is support in the gap of the movable part, it becomes impossible to move. It is recommended that you do not use Brim and use Raft for printing stability. The transparent part of the head can be printed out separately and then attach with glue.

This data may stick to moving parts depending on the status of the printer, so please check the status of the printer carefully.

The order of folding this robot is as follows.
