This is 1:4 scale B1 battle droid from the Star Wars prequels. The parts are designed to allow the figure to be posed with glued joints. The pose I picked was based a still from the battle of Geonosis, using the legs of the droid on the right and the arms of the droid on the left. The result unfortunately makes it look like it's performing Shakespeare or perhaps proposing marriage. A weapon might help, but the assembled figure is quite flimsy. You can see why they fall to pieces when confronted with an annoyed Jedi.
Added backpack geometry and new gallery images of a free-standing brother in arms w/backpack. Fixed join between neck and torso.
This is an original creation based on designs from the movies. I retain no rights to the design which presumably belongs to LucasFilm and Disney.
Print one of everything except the feet, where you need two. Note that the models are oriented in their relative orientations and are not positioned for ideal printing. A few objects have an obvious flat side, but most will need some testing to pick a good print orientation. Sand everything well. The tolerances were right for my printer but you may need to adjust them based on how your printer and material behave. Everything should snap together in a fairly obvious way, except for:
- the upper and lower arms. These are designed to pivot on a small segment of 1.75mm filament. You may need to bore out the holes a bit, then trim and straighten a segment of filament and use as the axis.
- the shoulder and hip joints. These are ball joints and need to be glued in the desired pose.
- The antenna on the backpack should be made from straightened segments of filament.
