RoboLabs Lunar Elite - Vertex
by barney, published
Disaster struck however when one of Dr. Warp's minions hacked into the RoboLabs mainframe and stole Professor Bot's Lunar Elite technology! This could prove catastrophic if the evil Dr. uses it to replicate a robot army.
Professor Bot must now rely on Vertex, his finest creation to retrieve the plans for Lunar Elite before it's too late...
UPDATE - I've uploaded a new version with completely redesigned joints which are much improved - thingiverse.com/thing:69329

Found out that the page of code is because IE doesn't like the download. One of my co-workers was able to download it with Google Chrome, so no more problems there.
Thanks a lot for the feedback, I really appreciate it!
This is a work in progress, I aim to update a lot of the joints and hopefully produce something that your 4 year old can play with!
I finally got around to printing my fixed head. The way that the head attaches to the body can use some improvement. The forearms crack right along the layer seam under durability testing by my 4yo. Yes, despite my instruction to him that it really isn't a toy. LOL. Those cracks could be mitigated by printing the forearms rotated 90 degrees so the seam doesn't carry the stress of the elbow socket. Both of these things are really nitpicks, because you've posted one of the nicer models up here. Thank you and well done!

The figure is comprised of snap-fit ball joints, most of the joints have been tested and although they may be very stiff at first they loosen up quickly. The joints work well printed in PLA at 0.1mm, 2 or 3 perimeters and a low infill like 5%.
Certain parts such as the upper leg are printed in two pieces. To avoid using support material they use a small extruded triangle to act as a friction fit. These are intentionally tight so the parts fit together securely. If they print too tight/loose you may want to sand or reprint them or just glue the parts if you want.
Deadlines are looming so I may not have the time to respond to requests that rapidly but I hope no-one has any problems printing it, the parts I've tested so far worked fine.
I'm excited to see what colour combinations you come up with!
Update - it appears the original head file had some flipped normals so there is now a repaired file which should work
