A little posable robot keychain. Although you could really hang it off of anything.


The parameters are pretty straight forward. You can control the length of all of the limbs and their parts. The height and width of the torso can be changed. You can also rotate the limbs and position them in any way you would like. The claw values are 0-100. It is the percentage open.

The circle to attach the keychain (or whatever else) can be moved. Make sure that it is attached because it is possible to move outside the bounds of the object. The cutout parameter also allow it to cut a hole right through the object so that you can position it anywhere within the model.

There is also a world scale to control the overall scale.

Something not working or you think something is missing? Leave it in the comments below.

Also i don't have a 3d printer at home (as of yet) so if things need to be changed in order to create a more successful print again feel free to leave it in the comments.

Awesome! :)

Got a remix in the works...

Also often fails because it can't create a manifold object. :(

This is fun! A few suggestions - if you could eliminated the minkowski() functions, it should be faster. Also, you can set the default preview view to be on top. See the docs: http://customizer.makerbot.com/docs#rotationhttp://customizer.makerbot.com...

Thanks so much for your suggestions tbuser. I have altered the file to eliminate minkowshi() (it is much faster). I was also getting some non-manifold geo because of the default setting on the pupil distance. It was just right to create a bad edge with no face. I think that I have it working now. Fingers crossed. Thanks again.

Looking good! Make default preview west and top so he's right side up and uses sliders for the arm/leg angles and it would be even better. :)

Awesome, thanks so much for the help tb.
