Doctor Who New Series Dalek Body by InnovationByLayers Jan 16, 2010

Description

Based on an idea I got from MakerBlock, I decided to create a Dalek from the 2005 series. I've used drawings from various groups to create it, so it should be to scale. However, I haven't quite worked out how to attach the eye, plunger, and gun yet, so that will hopefully be in a posted update soon. I could use any suggestions on attaching them!

Thanks

check http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... its the full scale model done in inventor.

Anyone have a STL for the plunger, eyestalk and gun?

I took my makerbot to a pinball gathering and printed out a few of these at 40% scale to get them to print quickly. They printed very nicely with fine detail on my ToM with an MK6+.

So, looking at your printed version I notice there's a lot of striation in the model. Have you tried to eliminate Z axis rod warping? If you can straighten those rods some, it will really help. My own 'bot as a wobble of about .2mm on just one axis - but it is noticeable. Yours looks like it may be slightly more.

Yeah the z axis is definitely warped, I'll look into how to straighten it

Dude, InnovationByLayers, THANK YOU!!!
Having an army of Daleks (and custom legos) is the reason I got a MakerBot.
You've outdone yourself!

So, I've actually given how to print a dalek a lot of thought. If we made a spherical cavity where each of the arms goes and a thin cylndrical cavity in the head, we could make each arm with a small sphere at the end to pop right in and an eye stalk with a thin vertical cylinder at the end to pop into the head.

BTW, I've already skeinforged this and am print it RIGHT NOW.
