R2D2 Redux by kwixson Apr 20, 2013

Description

A more printable version of the R2D2 thing by InnovationByLayers. While their model is commendable in its attention to detail, it was entirely useless as a printable model. I have taken the STL's into Blender and made considerable revisions both to make it manifold and printable without support. I tried my best to keep to the spirit of the design while fixing the overhangs and recesses that kept it from being something one could print on a 3D printer.

Hi, is there a head anywhere to download? Can't find. Thanks Klaus

Well, I just uploaded the foot pieces! Bit of a wait. Sorry about that. Believe me, I hear no end of it from my wife. "Where's R2D2's head!?"

Okay, just popped the files open and took a look. The STL's should all be the right scale. Some of the .blend files need to be scaled. The scale factor is simply 2x.

Instructions

I'm still working on the revisions and I'll put them up as finish them and confirm they are fit to print. My revisions are scaled up to twice the size of the original 'cause I have an awesome large format printer.

Can't recall offhand, though I do remember that I sometimes forgot to scale things up from the original. They are scaled at some reasonable, round number I think.
