Hello Tony,

I would like to use this figure in a educational project for kids, i am working on, is this allowed ?

hope to hear

Feel free to use it for whatever. Thanks.

in what progam did you design this figure ? Blender ?

Cool Thanks....
i see there are a few files for different size bodies, which one is the one for the legs arms etc used so i dont have to scale yet ?

This would be great if it had feet compatible with Lego, my kids would love it. Atleast the smaller version for lego.

this is rely cool do all the accessories from the last versions work with this one?

Yes, all the sizes are the same. Everything should work.

I printed the smallest one but am having issues with the legs connecting to the hips. The joint between the two is really loose and doesn't seem to quite fit properly. The problem seems to stem from the fact that the front and back of the hip balls are flat which definitely doesn't fit in well with the rounded inside of the leg joint. If the hip ball was rounded it would fit perfect similar to how the feet fit with the legs (rounded part fits into the rounded recessed spots inside the joint instead of flat).

I am going to try and reprint the legs with a slightly different orientation to see if they got warped a little bit during the original print but I don't think it is going to matter.

Overall, I really like the design, just wish the ball parts weren't flat in some spots that contact the inside of the joints.

Edit: I printed one of the other models you made with the partially rounded joints and it worked perfectly. For reference I did you Killer Kommando V1.3 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:554283

Are any of these (S, M, or L) the same size as the Iron Man you posted a couple weeks ago? Mini-Me is going nuts with it; I'll post a pic when I can get it away from him long enough...

The IronMan figure is the large one. You can actually scale these guys are scaled 1x, 2x, 3x respectively so all the parts are interchangeable.

Hey Tony, Great Item that I want to make it out.
Is there any recommendation for printing such as infill percentage and layer height?
I am using Repetier-Host.
Also, thinking about 50% infill and 0.2 mm height/layer.

Thanx a lot.

That should be fine. I use 10% and .2mm. Your don't need a huge infill to make the model feel pretty strong.

it would be nice if you put these instructions in the thing details instead of posting them in the comments. I printed the large one @125% and it broke when I tried to put it together. Flops around like a ragdoll. Printed at .3 resolution, and I wish I hadn't used PLA. Just a total disaster.

The weakest part is the hip joint. Some folks print that at 100% for the smallest model.

Hey Tony, i am currently printing .... the father :) and wondering about head articulation.... should be great....

I think a neck should be pretty easy. It's on the list for the next version.

Great job ! I like it and started to make .... a family !

I think about creating new heads as well ....

Thanx a lot for such a good work

No problem. Thanks for the feedback. Let me know if you have any problems with any of the files. TD

what resolution did u print it at?

Thinking of making one

I just wanted to print them fast so all of the ones you see are .3mm resolution.
