Since Fab365 designed the Foldable Robot, there have been many requests to design the Wall-E in a foldable way. This is because Wall-E is optimized for foldable design. However, the shape optimized for foldable is only the body, and Wall-E's head/eyes, arms, wheels and track are a challenging shape with many factors to consider.
Now that we too have gained a lot of experience, we now have the skills to create, and finally we can design like this.
Please enjoy the foldable design skills that Fab365 has accumulated over the past 3 years with the Foldable Wall-E.
Here are some things to keep in mind when making Foldable Wall-E.

When folding the body, make sure to check the positions of the protrusions and holes before folding.
The parts attached to the upper corner of the Wall-E's body have a small adhesive area, so it is recommended to apply the adhesive carefully before sticking.

The neck must first be pushed up and then rotated before it can move.

The arm moves along the rail. On the lower rail, it moves well when the arm is forward, and on the upper rail, it moves well along the rail when raised up.

To make the track move well, it's a good idea to grease the wheels with sewing machine oil.
If the tracks are well separated, it is helpful to increase the flow rate.

Please check the video for details of the making process.

    i have stopped the project . i have make it in trash . its possible to print but without information i recommand not to print because you spend a lot of time for nothing . finally its not possible to assembly it . For one who are new or whitout any experience about this project its better to stop.

    i Think more information is better about infill , speed , e.t.c because this is very hard to find the right settings when you are new

    The body stl is missing the arms in the file I downloaded. In your assembly video they are either side of the square piece at the bottom and they are not in a seperate file. Can I get the correct file?

    I found them, they were mislabelled as gray parts not yellow.

    i seem to have problems with the arms, they seem to keep fusing together at the joint. ender 3 pro, pla at 185, bed at 50, everything else prints fine

    Set horizontal expansion to -.02 in slicer for arms, it will make them a tiny bit smaller
