Foldable Robot R2D2

AUTOBOTO

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 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.

    Tried this with a resin printer at 56% scale (to fit on the build plate). Didn't really work (folding just snapped the hinges, legs snapped instead of swivelling) but I suspect with flexible resin, I think it might be better.

    You have to import, not open.

    I too had one leg fail near the end of the print. I am printing the single leg linked above. I don't own Simplify3D, but used prusaslicer. I am new to 3D printing so I kind of just did my best. I added a brim to reprint the damaged leg. What are the trick to get the defective leg out without breaking the model?

    It is amazing that pieces can be printed like this with hinged moving parts, I had no idea that this type of thing was possible. Very cool!

    Thank you for your sharing printing experiences.
    Happy 3D printing~

    It is possible to scale the object for a smaller print area?

    Thanks.

    It is possible to print the scale of this robot small, but if your 3D printer is not well adjusted, there is a possibility that the parts will not stick and move.

    The two main legs touch the build plate with very little surface area and came loose for me, causing the last 25% of them to be gobbledy gook. A raft may have helped me.

    I pulled the model into Fusion, isolate just the leg, and reprinted. Good to go now.

    Thanks for the design.

    how did you do that? it happened to me too. or even better can you provide just the legs?

    fab365 Administrator

    This is because of the small area the robot's arm touches the bed, but also because of poor bed adhesion.
    We recommend using Raft.

    I was able to single out the leg in Fusion360. Here is a link where you can download it. I am assuming this is okay as the original author released this file for free, however, if I am notified differently I will remove it. If you are the author and want me to remove this please contact me partsprinted@gmail.com

    I took a pair of snippers and cut the leg off. It is able to slide off the rail then.

    how did you print this with no support? The 2 extruding round shapes on the head has stuff printing mid air

    2020-02-22 01:24:49

    I don't see anything that would print mid air. Printed fine for me (other than issue with legs that I document in this thread, solved).

    The protrusions you mention stick out at an upward angle, not an issue.

    I used no supports anywhere although if I print again I may elect to use a raft.

    the 2 round things that stick out toward the side not the one that pointing up.

    Please, which settings would you suggest for printing in Ender 3 Pro, using Cura?

    Use the same Cura settings that it says in the description for the CR10

    I am printing on Ender 3 Pro with CR10 settings right now. I will let you know how it turns out. I am printing without supports. Wish me luck!
