Foldable Robot-BD Logo ver.

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.

    My print worked very well on my Prusa i3 MK2/S with MMU. I didn't use supports or a raft. Unfortunately, I used PLA and as soon as I tried to fold it, the parts broke apart (head and legs). Not a big deal though, I'm going to glue them. Perhaps I should have used PETG which I've heard is more flexible.

    We are using PLA for all printing. Almost all PLAs do not break when folded. But some brands are broken. Also, depending on the storage condition, problems may occur. Above all, transparent PLA breaks well in all brands. Please consider this point well. Thank you.

    I use a heat gun when I need to fold a 3D printed thing.

    why does the stl file have an ugly fab 365 logo on the back the previews dont show this

    Recently, bad people uploaded our designs to Thingiverse or various sites. So I suffered a lot of monetary damage. We are forced to expose the logo as much as possible. It was an inevitable choice for us to continue this work. I hope you understand.

    I'd buy this if it didn't have the Logo on the back. Are all of the other FAB365 robot models like this? Not showing all of the product images smacks of deception. Sadly, I won't be buying any of these models.

    My attempt failed around 80% One of the arms broke free during printing which caused the whole body to pop up. I attempted to fold the pieces and all broke. I'm going to try again with a raft and hope for the best. Prusa PLA on MK2.5S

    hola amigo, he impreso todo el bender y terminando la impresión se aflojaron los brazos y piernas por lo cual se dañaron al finalizar me gustaría modificar el archivo y intentar salvar solo estas partes ya que fue una impresion muy larga, podrias decirme en que programa fue diseñado ?

    The robot's arm fell off the build plate during print. Why not try Raft? With the Raft, you can get good results because your arms are attached to the build plate more tightly.

    Wonderful design, thank you! Printed on my Ender 3 and it turned out really good. For anyone reading this, you need a finely tuned printer to make sure everything moves correctly. Don't go into this print without having some hours of tuning under your belt! Make sure you have printed plenty of Benchies and calibration cubes first :) The only problem I had was the door had come unstuck from the bed which messed it up a little but it still ended up finishing without issue. I did use a little glue on the tabs to hold it together, friction fit wasn't quite doing it. The folds bent with ease using PLA. My only gripe is I would love a version without the 2 accessory nubs on the back, they look kind of silly if you're not attaching anything.

    The smaller the print, the more difficulty there will be. Even at 100% the joints are quite tight. I made my first print at 100% with ABS. 3D printers perform differently - and you will need to try adjusting print settings to get things to work. For this model, the most critical setting will be retraction. I used 3mm with my MakerGear M2 and it has worked well. My ABS model printed nicely, but all the fold joints broke apart. The arm/shoulder joints worked well after twisting them very slowly and carefully. The head swiveled well. The legs did not move at all and broke off when I tried to loosen them. The door hinge is very clever and worked well - but the tab for the door latch is way too big. I cut it almost in half and dressed it with 180 grit sandpaper to get it to snap closed gently, and be able to be opened again. As my body parts were all separate, I glued the thing together. Way too much work!
    My second print was PLA at 150%. Except for temp., same mech. settings. Long print time, but a nice print. The arm joints did not require any manipulation - worked perfectly right off the print table. The legs still did not move, but at this size, if the legs were loose the robot may fall over, so I left them be. Same deal with the door. This feature needs to modified in the print file before printing again. In order to avoid break up when folding, I heated the fold lines with a wood burning tool. A few light draws along the fold line front and back were adequate - you don't want to melt anything, just soften it a bit. This produced an excellent and easy fold up. The model snapped together nicely.
    This is a nice model. Nicely engineered with clever features, but needs more work.

    Thank you. It's very sad that you failed a lot on the output. If you print this small, the gaps between the gaps become smaller and stick together. The reason why your arms or legs do not move may be due to the phenomenon of elephant food. In this case, it is better to use Raft. Never use support. This is because the support blocks the gap between the parts. In addition to that, the following "knexfour" customer explained very well. Please read it carefully and try it ~

    Print came out looking great. Can only get the arms to move up and down, no rotation. Head and legs are stuck. Monorprice Maker Pro mk1(rebranded wanhao D9). The PLA is from Monoprint as well but I am not liking it too much plus it is black so I ordered some gray PLA from another company. Will try again when it comes. Great work!! Love the model and this will help fine tune my printer! Thanks

    Increasing the retraction may improve a little. I hope it's a good print. Thanks!

    Hey @fab365, great files!

    I can get this to print with all moving parts except the door! Any suggestions? Or is it possible to redesign the door to work better? I've printed it four times, all same results. Door stuck! Thanks!

    There are a lot of thin strings. It is better to increase Retraction value.

    I cant get this to print. when it gets to the fingers the arms move and it fails....
    Any suggestions?

    This is because the robot's arm and bed are falling in the middle of 3D printing. You might want to use a raft or a glue stick.

    When I load Bender into my Cura, only one arm shows, and no legs; do you know why that would be?

    fab365 Administrator

    I think the problem is caused by the graphics card.
