Foldable Robot R2D2

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.

    I will be exhibiting as r2-d2 builders in makerfaire2020 Japan. At that time, we plan to hold a mini workshop. So I'd be happy if I could print your r2-d2 data and give it to a child as a present. I want you to assemble it, paint it, make your own original r2, and have fun learning how to make a droid. Of course it is a free gift. Is it possible to get permission to use your data?

    Printed great on my Prusa, but the head does not swivel Also have issues getting the feet on the legs. Any tips?

    I think those parts fuse together. That caused by strings or rough surface. if your surfaces are smooth, Please increase retraction. Thank you~

    Printed with CR 10 S Pro. Using PrusaSlicer. No raft setting, Print fails every time. Any help will be appreciated.

    Please use raft. This design needs strong adhesion for arms. Thank you~

    I cannot print this for the life of me! I print to the settings on the Information and I still have fused prints! This is my third failed print! I am printing 195C on a Ender 3 Pro with a BLtouch! I just don’t get it!!!

    Open it with StuffIt from the App Store or Windows.

    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. Please check this out. https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/52032-manage-profiles

    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!

    New to the site sent this link by a relative Sliced using Simply 3D using the settings recommended using E-Sun PLA + Temp 205 Hot end & 50 on the Bed on an Ender 3 Pro with magnetic build plate AMAZING
