Am i late for the party? Here is my try: https://imgur.com/a/gxMdB8W
Thank you for this file.

I know this is from 7 years ago but do you have an assembled stl or and assembled solid works file?

This would be a nice project for dual Extrusion with black & orange :) I wished i had more time ...

Looks fantastic :-) Great attention to detail...

I was wondering, by chance, could this be modified to have small dc motors...?

I took an M3x10mm, cut off the head with a pair of pliers, and used that to connect the wrist and elbow.  That way I don't lose the full range of motion.  Here are the fixed files.  http://www.marginallyclever.com/blog/2012/12/kuka-kr180-from-thingiverse-fixed

Cool. Thanks for fixing the files. Just printed a copy in orange, which I wanted to post a on here, but "The license for this thing does not permit sharing copies." Boo... here it is on my site.

KR180 arm.stl appears to have inverted faces and does not convert to gcode with slicer 0.9.3.  I haven't checked the rest yet.

A couple of the .stl files are not manifold, or have faces with normal vectors facing the wrong way. Any chance you could put out a new set of .stl files that are manifold? I was printing most of the pieces, except for a couple, like the arm.

Yes, some parts are not really manifold. I couldnt fix them correctly, but i could print them without problems with skeinforge.

Cool!

Any tips on recommended motors?

I believe he means that you need to print two of the "motor" parts (specifically KR180 motor.stl"

Yes, thats what i meant.

The model is a little bit too small for real motors, although a friend mentioned it might be possible for the first 3 axes, with very small stepper motors. But that would need a redesign.

Oh.. I saw those but thought they were stubs for people who didn't have real motors.

Still cool! :)
