lo unico que se mueve ke son los pies o todo el brazo?la cabeza tambien??? teneis fotos para saber como montar para que se mueva??

Hello. Could you tell me please how many units do we have to print of each piece?

Comments deleted.

What's the final size of this? I guess my question is, is this actual 1:1 scale when it's assembled?

See notes in thing details ;-)

Hi! I'm trying to print this at 50% scale, but am having trouble to print all the dome panels. I could use my dual extruder to print the grey and blue parts in one go, but it seems the part won't align properly. Tried in Cura and Simplify3D. I guess the origins of the parts are different. Would you be able to upload a version where the parts align for dual/multi extrusion printing?

Yes i would also like to have a version that i aligned for Multi-Material-Printing as i have a Prusa MMU...

How many of each part do you need to print? I am confused on the dome parts.

Awesome Print. Thank You. I am doing one for a friend at 50% scale as he loves R2... Do you have any pics of the back-side? Based on the files it appears that other than the lower 5 holes, there are no other printed panels/pieces. From the pictures, I am also not sure about the dome pie panel 1 with the halo hole. I will post a picture when I am complete.

Not sure how tricky the Dome panels are at full scale... but at 50%, a trick I used to add glue supports is dropped 3 Domes down on the same spot in my slicer, one 50% and 2 at 49% (rotated each a different %)... then the resulting print had lots of back support for all the pieces :)


Great job.

I was wondering... Is it possible to make a hole in the body (warhead shape). Didn't find how to make it by myself.
Pronterface tells me that it will take 53 hours to print this part and most of the filling is not necessary (I think so).

Are the parts in the position that they need to be printed in ?

Beat me ! ;-) Yes, I think so, but doublecheck if some parts are not in the air. If so, move it down, the orientation is correct.

Curious if there are any tricks for putting the parts together. I assume most of it just gets super glued, though I'm wondering how the feet attach to allow movement. Thanks

You can attach a thin and long spring into the feet. There are holes in the print. The 3 feet are moveable, but not the sholuder. If you make the shoulder moveable, R2 will fall.

Hi, thanks for the model. I was wondering what filament brand and type you used to achieve the matte type finish on the grey and blue prints?

Hi !

See comment from me, Jan 31, 2018

Hi, this is quite a show piece.

Id really like to make this but how do you know what parts need scaling? other than printing them and finding they don't fit etc

When enabling auto support for the main body it creates supports in all the little crevices. Are these necessary? I don't want to remove them if necessary.

It's not really necessary but print comes out better with minimum support.

The biggest part is the white body, the barrel. It should be placed very well, needs some support. If you use my stl files, it should be fine.(for up to 200mm z). Most of the parts that are rescaled are from the dome, the panels, eyes, cutouts. Mostly 98% works good. But try it, it depends on how big you will print and maybe it depends on your printer settings and filament-type/vendor.

Awesome. Thanks. I will definitely have to print this one!

Share your print :-)

You say that some parts need to be rescaled to fit together. Which parts and by how much in which direction?

You need to take the skirt off the main body to reduce the height for some printers at the height is over 180mm at the current scale.

Should not be a hard task.
