Re: 3d Printed Parts


Could you show us exactly how you mounted them?

Would be a great help.

Thanks again for your time emoticon

Re: 3d Printed Parts


I lined them up where I wanted them and marked the centers with a little cross so I could tell were to drill.
Image

Next, holes were drilled into the arm and into the greeblies to widen the holes.

Then I ran screws through from the inside of the arm into the greeblie part.

It's really strong and can easily hold the full weight of the arm (as shown in the video clip)

Re: 3d Printed Parts


What type of screw or nut did you use? My main problem is the fact I've never worked with this 3D printed material and don't want to split the stuff emoticon

Re: 3d Printed Parts


weird... I got mine with no problem. I wonder if they changed the model tolerances again... which will suck because I'll probably have to re-update a bunch of models again... bah
I'll check it as soon as I have a chance and re-upload the model. Might not be till this weekend.

Mine are all Roughly 4.75" works fine for me
but if you start longer (5" or so) and figure out if you like the arms to go straighter or bend more by using a longer and shorter one... make sense?

I used these...

I drilled a small hole in the 3d part but didn't have any problems with the screw messing up the part. Same with the knee pistons. Just screwed right in. Also used this for the bicep greeblie.
For the smaller forearm greeblies I drilled a really small hole in the arm and in the part and glued in a small piece of paperclip as a guide. worked great.

Re: 3d Printed Parts


Any news on the model tolerance changes so we can print the belly circle through shapeways?

Thanks emoticon
