FAB365 is creating a new 3D printing culture in which 3D printing researches new technologies and shares them with 3D printing users at low cost. FAB365 has grown considerably with the love of our customers. And with the involvement and love of our customers, the design of FAB365 has spread and FAB365 has grown considerably. That's why we have a big gift for our customers who love the design of FAB365. It is a foldable R2D2 that many Starwars fans love.

The folding process is as follows:
1) First, connect the sides of the body by inserting a small protrusion. The protrusions are small, making them slightly difficult to fit.
2) Then insert the top and bottom parts.
3) Pull the arm outward and lower it down to fix it.
4) Cut and fit the filament on the feet to represent the cable. Cut to 26 mm long and fit it on top. At the bottom, cut the filament by 33mm and insert it.
5) Put the feet made under the arms and body, this robot is completed.

The finished R2D2 can rotate its head and move its arms back and forth. There's a device inside the arm that doesn't go beyond the most appropriate angle.

※ The arm may fall off the bed / plate during printing. In this case, use Raft. Raft holds the printout well during printing. ※

Once again, I would like to thank 3D printing users for creating a healthy 3D printing culture and I will continue to make good designs in the future.

    Damage that the Fab365 logo is visible on the legs of the robot, ok when it's free but there should be the same paid version with the hidden logo..

    It's a beautiful model, but I'm quite frankly mystified that people are able to print it at 100% scale with no issues. I have tried unsuccessfully, off and on for about a month to print this on my Prusa Bear MK3S+. There are 7 areas that have very minimal surface area on the first layer and like to come unstuck somewhere between layer height below about 1.6mm. Adding a brim prevents this, but then when you go to remove the part from the print bed, it breaks. I manually added small "ears" in the slicer to hold down just these parts. This worked, but then the print failed in one of the tall sections. Have tried two types of filament, including some very good quality stuff from Atomic Filament. I've used at least a half a kilogram of filament trying because I really wanted to make this for my sun. I've tried two printers. I am an experienced 3D printer that has never been unable to print something before, but ultimately I had to give up on this one. The first photo shows the tall area that failed. The second photo is a screen cap from my slicer of the first layer, with annotations to show the areas that fail.

    And change extrusion width to 0.4mm.
    I don't understand why prusa slicer default extrusion width setting is 0.48mm, even though nozzle size is 0.4mm

    all printing done, just a problem with the legs, they didnt move and trying to rotate them they broke off, they only rely on one layer of printing, the rest was ok, so it'll be a fixed print now

    Done in Ender 5

    This is an awesome model. I like the detail - I just wish there were separate colored parts like the X-Wing so I wouldn't have to paint it. I would pay for that! These are fun to print and I am amazed at how you can design them.

    Hola me llamo jose he intentado por tres vez imprimir en r2d2 y no con sigo que las partes móviles se muevan siempre me salen todo pegado a las otras piezas.
    tengo una artillery genius que paramentos necesito para poder que se muevan las piezas movibles en el programa cura.
    gracias por su atención y tiempo

    Took about 19 hours to complete. Really nice detail Using Tecbears Silver Silk PLA+

    I used the FAB365 Ender3 profile.

    Tried printing with Raft, with Brim, and with nothing. Can't get it to flex, all I end up doing is snapping the legs and bending the heck out of the hinges. Don't know why it's not working....

    Biggest waste of time ive ever had to deal with. Legs snapped off when I tried to fold them down after pulling them out. Yeah both of them snapped off. Second of all the head wont go down and wont fit into the places that are marked on it. Overall the biggest waste of time and filament I've ever encountered.
