I like the model, though it has some problems on the sides and it is not as clean as it could be. The alignment of the parts is not perfect and so there are some steps in the surface.

Needs some putty if you build it but it´s worth it anyway :) Thanks for the effort to design this!

pretty ugly on the back because of the cut section. great job but too much work on it after print is necesary

Hi ! I saw many of your great model and I'm asking me : what kind of glue do you use for putting together those pieces ? (sorry for bad english :/ )
(and I also asking me if I do C3PO first or K2SO...)

Hi
For larger pieces I use car body filler. Smaller parts I use two pack epoxy. I can't use superglue because I'm allergic to it.
Body filler can be thinned down with acetone to any consistency and it dries fast. Don't over apply it though or it will ooze out of the joint when you push it together.
C3PO is the easiest but K2SO is cool.

This is a really smart design for a K2SO print. Thank you for the effort you put into creating this. Next on our list.

So I can't the "Head Band" file to print properly in Cura. The entire piece doesn't sit flush with the build plate.Is there a fix for that?

Hi
I checked the file and there is a small anomaly on the bottom that may stop it sitting flat. I've uploaded a new version that should fix the issue.
Good luck and post pics when your finished!

Do you see any issues printing this at 200% so that it is 1:1 scale replica? As long as it fits on my printer bed that is.

Hi. It should print fine at your scale.
Just remember that sanding of the plastic needs to stay cool especially if your printing with pla so I generally wet sand.
I have one at 1:1 scale myself.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the overall size of the 1:1 you printed. I've been printing this here and there, and this seems really large.

Mines about 7" wide 8" tall and 10" deep. No idea if this is the correct size. I just made it roughly the same size as a mans head.

Ok, just wanted to make sure. Just started printing the Head Front and the eyes distance and size seems about right. I'm not looking for exact. Just to get in the ballpark. I was just one of the other pieces seemed huge, but I think it will all come together nicely. Thanks!

Neck tube added if you don't have 21.5mm waste pipe

It looks great! Thank you. Though, it would be even greater with an assembly instruction or an assembled stl file to have a look at which part goes where. Cheers!

Hi, Thanks for the comments. I've added a couple of exploded views that hopefully show better how it goes together.

Ahhhh, there's a rod in between the neck pieces, right? That's why I couldn't figure it out how to put them together :) I think that rod is missing on the files. Or, am I wrong? I'll double check.

No your right. I used a piece of plastic plumbers pipe 21.5mm. Its readily available here in the uk.
My bad/ I should have mentioned it. I will put on a printed version in case anyone wants to do it that way.

well, now the final piece is there, its complete. I made one, check it out :) Thanks for this :)

Looks great! I like the eyes.
More cool stuff in the pipeline. Check my stuff now and again.

will do, cheers! :)
