Articulated Robot design. His name es Ankly
It is printed articulated, without need of later assembly.
A challenge for your printer, you must adjust it well to be able to print it since the tolerances for the joints are minimal.
Once printed it is necessary to review and remove the small supports of the piece.

You will find two files one at 100% in size and another at 80%.
( 100% size it is easier to get good results)

On request I added file without supports (100 size Ankly without supports.stl). With this file it is necessary to add supports to be printed.

Print Settings








20% to 100% size


To print at 80% of its size, I recommend choosing file "80 little puppet Ankly.stl"
Layer Height: 0.16mm
Wall thickness: 1.2mm
Infill density: 40%
Wall speed: 35mm/s
Infill speed: 60mm/s

Laminate with Cure


Puppet Robot

As the joints have little friction, it is possible to construct a puppet.
If on the other hand you want to add friction, you can put liquid latex on the joints.

i printed the puppet vercion which came out very loose.. also the joints keep popping out. is the normal version stiffer with better joints?

Printer at 80% and 65% and came out great!. The key is definitely to print .16 for the height and have a big brim to support the robot while printing. I had downloaded the files a while ago and didn't see the puppet version. When i look at the puppet version that I just downloaded, 80_little_puppet_Ankly__.stl I do not see the hooks the attaching the strings for the puppet. Am I looking at the correct file to print the puppet?

I'm glad you had a good result in the printing
I joined the strings with a hot silicone gun. The files do not have hooks.

I have hard times printing this model on the replicator 5th gen. When I start printing, it elapses like 6 seconds and then says it’s done, could anyone help plz?

Nevermind, I got it, it was just too big for my printer in 100%...
By the way, this is an amazing print!! I have no clue how people make stuff like this..

Anyone tried the 60% reduced file ? does it move after printing ? @shira

hard to get the wrists to rotate with a smaller sized print. otherwise breaks looks fairly easily and with some working becomes quite moveable

I had this problem with robot's feet. Do you have a stl file of the parts seperate?

Que guapo!! Enhorabuena!! Intentaré imprimirlo a ver que tal queda ;)

Que bien ! Gracias

Como todo lo que haces, espectacular. Voy a tratar de imprimirlo a ver que tal!

Genial!! espero ver la impresión. Muchas gracias

Can you make a version without support? I'd like to see if my slicer can do a better job, especially around the hips.

I had the same issue with the hip joints. Shira's supports work well everywhere else. So I just added a tiny wedge under each hip. Now they print perfectly. Love it! Thanks Shira!

"100 size Ankly without supports.stl" I have removed all supports. Good luck with the file!

I wanted to ask for the same thing. Thank you.

Please repair the files. Both files are corrupted. In addition, at a height of 4 mm (80% version) in the pelvic region, the parts are exposed to air. Therefore, support is needed. The version of 100% does not apply to the table on the first layers.

Please try with this file "100 size for Slic3r.stl", try if it is ok in Slic3r

Both STL's aren't manifold and can't be sliced in Slic3r. Parts of the body disappear.

Please try with this file "100 size for Slic3r.stl", try if it is ok in Slic3r

This version is manifold and slices correctly in Slic3r. Thx! Will post make if I succeed in printing ;)

Chulísimo el diseño. Me lo apunto para imprimir y ya contaré a ver como sale. Muchas gracias :)

Gracias!!! Espero que salga bien. Lleva bastante tiempo de impresión.
