Foldable Robot-BD Logo ver.

$ 4.49



※ FAB365 Logo is on this robot's back outside. ※

This is the 7th in a series of folding robots to prepare for 4D printing. It was inspired by a robot called "Bender" that appeared in the animation "Futurama (1999-2013)".
The body of the robot is narrowed downward, so a new proportion is applied.

This is the kind of "3D Fan art". Many of my imaginations have been added. It is difficult to see the original shape before folding it.

This robot's arms and legs are elongated and structurally reinforced to prevent them from falling due to the vibration of the 3D printer during printing. Nevertheless, please understand that the length of the legs is slightly shortened because the legs are so large that they are likely to fall during the print.
It is very difficult to create hand-drawn animated characters in 3D. So, to express the feeling, I interpreted it subjectively and designed it.
The chest has a door that can be opened and closed so that you can put various things in it.

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.

    I keep having the same arm falling off. I was watching the next print around 86 percent the printer gouged into the hand partially picking it up. The next layer on the arm you could see the arm moving with the nozzle. Not sure if this is the reason the others failed I've cut it multiple times. The arm fails at different times but seems to always fail. Failed close to ten times. Any ideas?

    Using fab365 cura profile only changes are layer height to 2 infill to ten and overlap to 40. Tried not changing anything but layer height as well.

    Very hard to print due to the small bed footprint of the door, arms and legs which is causing bed adhesion problems.

    My first attempt failed because the door became detached from the bed. Second attempt with brim (and supports on the door underside for improved bed adhesion) succeeded, however both arms failed because they became loose. With Octoprint I was able to save the print by adding an exclusion zone to one arm. I'm now reprinting the top parts of both arms and then hopefully I can trim and glue both pieces together.

    EDIT: As mentioned below as a tip on , you should be using a raft for this print. A brim is not enough as this doesn't help attach interior parts of the print.

    EDIT2: Disappointed as the completed print turned out to be a failure. Trimming and glueing the arms is close to impossible. Also the antenna suddenly fell off, the head also came loose due to the fragile plastic "hinges". I'm going to have to reprint this with a raft, if I'm going to make another attempt.

    I don't advise anyone on buying this, instead you should just get a similar model on Thingiverse.

    How are you able to sell this when the IP doesn't belong to you?

    Bender is a creation of Matt Groening and the likeness belongs to him.

    I'd buy without a logo, but not with. Give it free with stupid logo.

    The logo ruins it.

    I get the reason for the logo, and fair enough, I bought the file based off the main picture that didn't show the logo. The discription did mention it so I won't be asking for a Refund, but damn, I was excited to find a site with high quality files for a fair price. I was planning on getting most if not all of the vechical files over time. If I have to sand off and fill a logo, then I have to paint, and at that point, there is no point. If you do end up finding a way to protect your files without ruining them, let me know and I will be back to spend my money!

    We apologize for the inconvenience. This model is the initial design of fab365, and our logo is outside.
    Currently, the models we provide are manufactured by putting the logo in the invisible part as much as possible
    We're sorry, but it's hard to modify this model right now. We will forward your opinion to the design team for the future model design.
    If you have any additional questions or need assistance, don't hesitate to contact us at

    I have been printing these non stop on a Prusa Mini in Silver Silk PLA. Some tips for this machine: I was overheating the head antenna, so I made a 10mm cylinder, 66mm tall in the opposite corner of the print bed to allow for cooling. I also limited the speed for small radii to 20mm/s. I had bad luck with the joints printing above 0.1mm layer height. I used 0.42mm extrusion width and increased the perimeters to 3 to improve the strength of the arms and legs during the initial movement. With Silk I find I have to use at least 220C for the 2nd layer and above to get good layer bonding. Happy printing!

    Yeah no way these long moving arms gonna survive the print.. 10 hr print ruined by the end of it :(

    Arms fall off while printing, Please check this print tips.
    Please enjoy~

    What material must this be printed in? PETG? ABS? PLA?

    2020-08-18 14:55:52

    I tested various brand's PLA.
    But I didn't tested with ABS or PETG.

    Is there a version without the external logo please? if so cannot find it. Great model otherwise though. Thanks.

    2020-08-11 16:48:55

    All designs have logo. Even guest designer's work.
    We strongly recommend make logo outside and inside to all designers.
    Thank you, Please enjoy~

    Thanks for this awesome model.
    Unfortunately I haven't succeeded in completely printing it, always an arm toppled / broke off.
    Reason being that my printer can't handle the overhang at the hands.

    I would like to suggest to reduce the shoulder part of the arms somewhat, to position them more vertical on the print plate and thereby reducing the overhang.
    Bender could also lift his arms higher. Yay!

    Much has been said about the logo - which I understand.
    But could you maybe provide a model without the two pins on the back?

    Image 1: the "hair" is due to the toppled arm. I shortened the partial arm a bit, reprinted the lower arm and hand and glued them together.

    Image 2: with freshly glued arm. The painted one I stopped the print at upper eye level as lots of stuff tumbled. Reprinted a bit too much of the rest and glued it on top. I like that it looks a bit like a cap ^^

    Your print is very good. but stable print for arms, you have to care for strong adhesions on bed. You and use glue stick or supplies for bed adhesions. Or raft will be helpful for strong adhesions for arms.
    Now, you can get some help from my print-tips.
