Hey there, I am new to 3D-printing, so I have to ask: Why did you put the utility arms themselfs on this "bed"?

Hi mrbaddeley,
Very, very good job, i'll test to print parts, but just one question before start, wow do you install servos on the system? have you more photos or shematics?
thanks a lot for your job :)

This is great thanks for sharing, will this fit club spec aluminum arms?

Size wise it should fit (R spec) but the mechanism probably isn't strong or robust enough for Aluminium arms I would imaging. I used printed arms which are lightweight. The bore hole in the printed arms is 6mm.

Thanks so much, I just been looking at your work and very impressed

Thank you. To be honest the build is completely experimental as I wanted to completely print R2 as cheaply as possible. Hence the light weight, cheap servos, ardunios and Bluetooth. I'm delighted with the results but compared to the fabulous club builds its noisier and certainly less robust but I love it :-)

awesome work, could you upload the sketch too?

Will add to my OneDrive. (Link on the dome description. )

You've succeeded in building a great looking droid! I built a full metal R2 and now started on a styrene R5, how much would it cost for a printed R5 dome?
