Cyberman Action Figure Upgrade
by 7777773, published
I've been working on making printable moving parts since before I ever posted my first submission to Thingiverse, and I'm still terrible at it. I'm pretty sure this is the first submission I've made public that actually has any moving parts, and it's not perfect. If you have any suggestions or critique, please don't hesitate to share... My goal is to eventually get a reliably reproducible open source template to build custom printed action figures with 80's-era GI Joe action figure levels of articulation.

This is great. Printing now to celebrate Cybermen Day! http://www.inkfactory.com/blog... will tweet @inkfactory
There were a number of things I wanted to fix on this model but never got back to. I always intended to make it print without any support, for example... I'll get back to it eventually, but free time hasn't been all that easy to find

Print the pins in ABS. The actual parts can be PLA, ABS, whatever.
You may need to play with downsizing the pins by 2 or 3 % - I designed in a very small amount of space but every printer is different.
The arms aren't great. They print but need external support. I think I'll need to make elbows to help them sit better on the build plate, but this project has already taken forever so I'm releasing as-is for now. Consider the arms and knees an in-progress feature to be improved at a later time.
