from TrustyDusty #3DPrinting #3DThursday
by Jessie Mae
TrustyDusty shared this project on Thingiverse!
I redesigned the Mark II to be put together using printable bolts, nuts, and screws. I modified almost every piece to have a tighter fit to better hold poses.
One thing I learned about PLA while redesigning this, was that PLA is not elastic. It will not hold a spring type tension. This is why I don’t think the fingers will ever work.
I printed the hip bolts in the same color as the hips.
No supports should be needed anywhere.
All parts should be in correct print orientation. Hands are printed up at a slower speed.
Because of bolt threads, 0.1mm resolution may be required, but that is how I always print.
No modifications or scaling should be required.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
