will yours mix with the original?? i have parts from hers but the arms dont print right on hers because they end up welded together and dont bend at the elbow

As usual with Jason's designs this turned out great for me with no hassles at all. I still need to get some elastic cord to tie it all together but I foresee no problems at all

Kudos

LOL .... I got everything glued together and realized there was no head. I just grabbed the one from the original so no big deal

hi, thanks for the remix what kind of glue worrks with PLA? I am having a horrible time with my hands. I can not get the moveable fingers to stay on. I have decisded to drill thru and the glue the fingers to a rod :o)

I use Methylene Chloride. Wear gloves and don't get any on your fingers, also keep in an airtight container.. but it bonds PLA like magic, it works even better than acetone on ABS..

Superglue works you just have to be careful not to use too much or it takes too long to set. I use a toothpick and run a drop down it to help control how much gets on the parts. Just let a small drop run down to the tip and if it's too much just tap it to get off the excess. On really small parts you may want to glue a larger piece with the toothpick and then use the left over on the tip to put a dot on the small part(s) Air needs to get to the surfaces being bonded for the glue to set and that can't happen if the area is "flooded" with glue. Superglue is a lot like 3D printing in that you MUST use a series of thin layers and build it up if you want to make a thick layer. Less is more when it comes to superglue and most people try to use way too much
