Another character of the epic Star Wars series, R2-D2 drawn in 3D.
Another character of the epic Star Wars series, R2-D2 drawn in 3D. It (again) took... quiet a while to get this far but I feel it's good enough to be printed now.It's optimized for the Ultimaker and split in 12 parts (V1) or 16 parts (V2, see comments below). Other than the AT-ST Walker this one is drawn from scratch resulting in an easier to adjust model.
28-8-2013: Dome V1 is split into 5 pieces to minimize parts with overhang (Dome V1 had quiet a few).
NEW PARTS ARE: Dome V2.stl, Lens dome V1 (3x).stl and Dome front lens V1.stl
Since Cura's multi-part printing is working just great there's no reason to not split it :-) Thanks Daid & Ultimaker!
3-9-2013: I printed all parts at 50% and found a few things were not printed as hoped. The middle foot part (V2) had multiple issues so I made a new version of it. Improvements on this part include: increased wall thickness, better inner structure, stronger detail effects.
3d model print parameters
- 2x Arm detail piece V1
- 1x Body bottom V1
- 1x Body V1 (rotate 45 degrees, see comment below)
- 1x Left arm bottom V1
- 1x Left ...arm main V1
- 1x Left foot V1
- 1x Middle Foot V1
- 1x Right arm bottom V1
- 1x Right arm main V1
- 1x Right foot V1
Revision 1: Dome
I noticed there are a few overhangs on the Dome V1 part. Overhangs are something I really tried to avoid to make printing easier. I decided to offer a new version of the dome. You have two options now:
Option 1) please take notice of the overhangs!
- 1x Dome V1
- 1x Dome V2
- 1x Dome front lens V1
- 3x Lens dome V1
You can also mirror the left and right parts if you like.
*) In order to make the "Body V1" part fit the platform at 100% you'll need to rotate it 45 degrees so that R2's 'shoulders' are positioned diagonally from the top view.
