the zip file is missing the right arms/legs

a simple mirror in cura can do taht

First of all, thanks for this! My kid has wanted this robot for a long time now and as he wanted the robot in red, just like yours, I had to buy some red filament just for this print. :P And now I'm printing one in blue for my other kid that also loved the robot. :)

But I have a question, is there any specific reason that the upper legs and the hips are in two pieces? The same question goes for the torso and the cowl. I have to glue the two pieces into one so it feels kind of pointless to print them in two pieces...

The shin STL has a lot of non-manifold (incorrect) geometry (doesn't slice well with Simplify3D). I have run it through Meshmixer and made it solid. The file is here if you want to update yours: http://pat.net/misc/shin-fixed4.stl

3d builder that comes with windows does a better job. just repaired and merged and it's solid.

You should name it.

Nevermind.. It's name is Vertex 2

Thanks for improving on the model. This one is great! I printed in PETG and tightened the sockets using a heat gun. The sockets are surprisingly easy to mold by hand. No burns. :-)

Thanks, I had fun improving and printing this figure.
PETG is interesting as it has a better flexibility than PLA, your articulations must work very well.
looking forward to seeing your print in the makes section :]

I'm printing a few in different colors. I'll post as soon as I have a battle scene ready.


That is why it is called a remix. I linked the original in my sources. I personnaly edited it because the original one had bad articulations and needed a good refresh.
But thanks to you I now know where I can find the original source of this robot.

I printed this but it appears to be missing the right arm parts and right leg parts. Am i missing something?

happened to me too

Just mirror the left parts ;)
Looking forward to seeing your make.


Hand and katana added !

I designed a hand with a hole that fits a katana. I will upload the parts tonight.
